Four Irish Millionaires Guaranteed on EuroMillions in August
Last Updated: Tuesday 27th September 2022, 08:42 am
A series of special EuroMillions draws have been lined up for August, which will see four Irish players guaranteed to become millionaires.
The Ireland Only Raffle will create one millionaire on every Friday this month - starting on the 5th, then the 12th, 19th and 26th.
The raffle will work in the same way as normal. You will automatically receive one raffle code for every line of EuroMillions numbers you play, and 10 codes will be selected as the winner in each draw.
If you match one of the winning codes exactly - with every character in the same position - you get a €5,000 prize. In the promotional draws in August, the 10 winners will then be entered into a separate draw, with one ticket holder randomly selected to receive an extra €1 million.
Only the codes that have been generated for a draw are entered into the raffle, so the prizes will definitely be won. This is different to the main EuroMillions lottery, where there is no guarantee that someone will match the winning numbers.
It’s possible to win a prize in the main draw and the Ireland Only Raffle on the same night. The odds of winning the raffle depend on how many tickets are sold.
Superdraw on the Horizon
After the excitement of the four millionaires in August, another big EuroMillions event will take place on Friday 9th September. A Superdraw, or Megadraw, will see the jackpot bumped up to €130 million.
Superdraws only take place three or four times a year. There have been two so far in 2022, with the most recent one in June eventually leading to a record €230 million win for a UK player a few weeks later.
If nobody wins the top prize on 9th September, it could potentially keep growing until it reaches its new jackpot cap of €240 million.
It promises to be a thrilling few weeks for EuroMillions fans everywhere, so make sure to get involved for your chance to win. You can bet online or visit a lottery retailer.
