One lucky punter has pocketed a whopping £500,000 on the lottery. 

The mystery winner known only as Miss C from Lowestoft bagged the life-changing amount on September 30 after entering a National Lottery Thunderball lucky dip.

She now plans to take her family to a theme park as a Halloween trip.

Andy Carter, senior winners’ advisor at The National Lottery, said: “Huge congratulations to Miss C for winning this fantastic prize.

"She can enjoy some spooky family fun this Halloween after becoming half a million pounds richer overnight.”

Winners can choose whether to release their name, remain anonymous or - like Miss C - release some details.

The National Lottery players generate £30m for good causes each week funding projects of all sizes across the nation.
