First EuroMillionaires Raffle Draw Offers 25 Prizes of €1 Million
Last Updated: Thursday 27th October 2016, 09:53 am
Friday’s EuroMillions draw will offer you 25 additional chances to become a EuroMillionaire, as a new continent-wide raffle is launched. Ticket holders in each of the nine participating nations will have a unique code generated for each line they play in the main game, which will then be entered into the brand new EuroMillionaires Raffle Draw for the opportunity to bag one of 25 awards of €1 million.
Irish EuroMillions tickets already include four-letter and five-number combinations for the Ireland Only Raffle and that same code will also act as their entry into the European draw. It is entirely possible to pick up the €5,000 local prize as well as the seven-figure multinational award on the same code. Both draws were introduced as part of a raft of changes to EuroMillions that took place on 24th September.
The EuroMillionaires Raffle Draw is known by different names across Europe, with UK ticket holders calling it European Millionaire Maker and Austrians referring to it as MillionenRegen. Each code generated has the same chance of winning as any other and your odds are entirely dependent on how many other players take part in this Friday’s EuroMillions draw.
In addition, the jackpot will be worth €17 million after a Belgian player banked a €50.1 million triple-rollover jackpot on Tuesday night. They became the second player from that country to win the EuroMillions top prize in a fortnight, following a waste management worker from Brussels who claimed a staggering €168 million on Tuesday 11th October.
For your shot at the eight-figure jackpot, or one of the €1 million EuroMillionaires Raffle Draw prizes, you can play EuroMillions online or pop in to any authorised retailer to get hold of physical tickets.
