A lucky lottery player from the North East has landed a whopping prize after her numbers came up earlier this month. 

The mystery woman, known only as Mrs C from Teesside, won £10,000 a month for a year after matching the five main numbers in the Set For Life draw on Thursday, November 9. 

After landing the top prize, the winner plans to spend the money on some lovely holidays.

Mrs C, who played via the National Lottery app, has become one of over eight million players that win each week on The National Lottery’s range of games.

Interactive winners have the opportunity to release their names, remain anonymous or like Mrs C, release some details through partial publicity.

Andy Carter, Senior Winners’ Advisor at The National Lottery, said, “What fantastic news for Mrs. C who can now look forward to receiving £10,000 every month for a whole year.
