The Irish Millionaire Raffle is a special game held to mark special occasions such as Easter or Christmas. Unlike Lotto, Daily Million and other games, the Millionaire Raffle offers a set number of tickets for sale on each occasion, meaning that no additional tickets can be sold beyond the amount determined for each game. Each Raffle ticket is sold with a pre-printed, randomly selected number; players can't choose which numbers they want to play.
Sales for the Millionaire Raffle stop when all the tickets are sold or when sales for the game close, whichever happens first. Tickets for the Millionaire Raffle cost more but offer larger cash prizes. Each raffle offers a single top prize of €1 million, with the value of other prizes usually falling between €250 and €250,000.
How Millionaire Raffle Works
Millionaire Raffle games are conducted in two stages. The winning tickets are selected at random out of the entire pool of purchased tickets and are drawn again to determine which prize is allocated to each winning ticket.
