Christmas Millionaire Raffle Sets Pulses Racing
Last Updated: Friday 29th December 2017, 11:19 am
The annual Christmas Millionaire Raffle will take place on New Year’s Eve, giving players across Ireland the chance to go in search of some brilliant prizes. One lucky ticket holder is guaranteed to win €1 million, while thousands of other participants will receive substantial windfalls to mark the start of 2018.
How the Millionaire Raffle Works
There are 500,000 tickets available for this year’s Christmas Millionaire Raffle and players have been able to enter since the start of November. Tickets cost €25 each, with entrants receiving a unique raffle code when they part with the cash.
Only raffle numbers which have been sold are then placed into the draw on Sunday 31st December, ensuring that there will be a winner for every prize. Winning codes are selected at random, and ticket holders with matching codes then have 90 days to come forward and claim their money.
Millionaire Raffle Prizes
The top prize in the Christmas Millionaire Raffle is worth €1 million, but there are also 5,055 other rewards on offer. These range from €500 to €250,000, and the odds of winning are far more favourable than on many other lottery games due to the limited number of tickets on sale.
It is vital that players check their tickets so that they do not miss out on any prizes they might be due. The winner of last year’s €1 million reward, who bought their ticket in Cork, failed to come forward within the 90-day time limit.
Irish lottery fans can also dream about Friday’s €35 million EuroMillions jackpot and the €2.5 million top prize in Irish Lotto. Numbers can be chosen online or by visiting authorised retailers in Ireland. Good luck!
