EuroMillionaires Raffle Draw on 21st January To Make 100 Millionaires
Last Updated: Tuesday 11th January 2022, 11:42 am
The EuroMillions draw on Friday 21st January will see 100 players win €1 million each. The winners will come from all over Europe, so a number of Irish players could become millionaires.
How The European Raffle Works
You don’t need to do anything different to enter the special promotion, as you will be automatically entered into the raffle if you buy a EuroMIllions ticket for the draw on 21st January.
On your ticket you’ll see the raffle code where it usually is. This will consist of nine characters - starting with a letter I, followed by three more letters, then five numbers. The code will be entered into the Ireland Only Raffle as usual, but this time it will also be entered into a separate EuroMillionaires Raffle.
Every EuroMillions ticket sold in the other eight participating countries will also feature a nine-digit code - with different starting letters for different nations. On the night of the draw, 100 winning codes will be selected at random, and you’ll receive €1 million if you exactly match one of the codes in full.
How Many Irish Winners?
All the winning codes will be drawn at random, so there is not a predetermined number allocated to each country. Every single code generated across Europe has an equal chance of winning, with the odds entirely dependent on how many tickets are sold.
It remains to be seen how many of the winning codes will be Irish, but there are 100 more chances than normal to become a millionaire.
This is only the third time that a EuroMillionaires Raffle has been organised in the last six years. In the most recent one, in February 2018, there was one Irish winner out of a total of 25. With four times as many prizes up for grabs, there could be lots more success for the Emerald Isle.
Superdraw on 4th February
Two weeks after the EuroMillionaires Raffle, a Superdraw will take place on Friday 4th February. The jackpot will be worth €130 million, even if it has to be increased substantially from its value in the preceding draw.
Superdraws offer some of the largest jackpots you get in EuroMillions, and if there is no winner on the night the top prize rolls over and can keep growing. The current jackpot cap is €230 million.
Make sure you don’t miss out on either of the two upcoming events. Enter online or in-store, then check the EuroMillions Results to find out if you are a winner.
