This story was published more than 10 years ago.

According to the BBC this week, a mystery lottery winner from Wales is the latest mega-winner on the UK National Lottery, scooping nearly £850,000 without even touching a ticket. National Lottery operator Camelot said the man, known only as Mr F from Powys, played the game interactively - either via the web or by text.

He matched all six numbers in the Lotto on 14 November.

A National Lottery spokeswoman said Mr F "banked this fantastic prize with just a few simple clicks - he didn't even have to pick up a ticket."
