TWO lucky Brits have claimed a National Lottery prize scooping them £10,000 per month for a year.
The pair hitting the £120,000 Set For Life jackpot both appear to be from the same London borough, Lotto organisers Camelot revealed.
A winner of the October 9 Set For Life draw has come forward after buying a ticket in Sutton, south London – matching five main numbers which guarantees £10,000 a month for a year.
A mystery man known only as Mr B, also from Sutton, did the same in the draw a week earlier, Camelot today said.
Mr B – who used a Lucky Dip ticket bought via the National Lottery website – plans to go on holiday with his winnings, organisers said.
Interactive winners can choose to release their name, stay anonymous or release some details through partial publicity as Mr B has done.
The National Lottery’s senior winners’ advisor Andy Carter said: “What amazing news for these lucky ticket-holders who can now look forward to receiving £10,000 every month for a year.
“Sutton is clearly a lucky place to live.
“This is a fantastic way to start the month – and with October having been very lucky for Set For Life players with three top prizes and 11 second-tier prizes won, who knows what’s in store for November?”
The Set For Life draw gives winners £10,000 each month for 30 years if they have not only five of the same numbers but also a matching Life Ball.
That massive top prize was scooped in the October 23 draw.
A previous winner of the £10,000 for 30 years was Amazon worker Dean Weymes, from Peterborough in Cambridgeshire.
And his success inspired young dad-of-one Sam Lawton, from Leamington Spa in Warwickshire, who recently told how he’ll spend his windfall of £10,000 each month for a year.
Meanwhile, Kent has been called “one of Britain’s luckiest counties” after three locals scooped £3million in Lotto prizes in just two weeks.
Elsewhere in the county homeowners in the town of Deal were handed £1million in the People’s Postcode Lottery.
But one of the neighbours, pregnant mum Tamsin Burling, told how she almost missed out on her £83,000 share.
Other locals told of what made them feel “gutted” on getting the good news.
