Irish EuroMillions Player Guaranteed To Win €1 Million
Last Updated: Monday 23rd October 2017, 11:17 am
A special edition of the Ireland Only Raffle will take place on Friday 27th October, guaranteeing that one lucky EuroMillions player from the country will win €1 million.
What is the Ireland Only Raffle?
The Ireland Only Raffle is a supplementary game for EuroMillions players in Ireland, and everyone who buys a ticket for the main draw is automatically entered. The cost is included so there is no extra charge, and players will notice a code on their ticket consisting of four numbers and five letters. This code is randomly generated at the point of purchase so that everyone has a unique ticket.
In regular draws, ten winning codes are randomly selected on the night and the ten players with matching tickets will all receive €5,000. However, special draws take place from time to time to offer even better rewards.
The first special edition of the Ireland Only Raffle was held on Friday 17th February 2017, and another one took place on Friday 5th May. Both raffles offered a guaranteed €1 million.
How Does Friday’s Game Work?
The special draw on Friday will work in the same way as standard Ireland Only Raffles, with ten winning codes chosen at random. However, unlike in most draws, these ten codes will then be entered into another separate draw, in which one will be randomly selected to receive an extra €1 million. The other nine winners will still all pocket €5,000.
There will also be the usual EuroMillions prizes up for grabs in the main draw, including the enormous jackpot, and you can take part online or by visiting authorised retailers in Ireland.
