Special Ireland Only Raffle to Return in May with Guaranteed €1 Million Prize
Last Updated: Thursday 29th July 2021, 13:47 pm
A special addition of the Ireland Only Raffle draw is set to take place on Friday 5th May, with one lucky EuroMillions player guaranteed to win €1 million.
The Ireland Only Raffle, which was launched in September 2016 and coincided with a number of changes to the EuroMillions game, creates ten guaranteed winners of €5,000 in every EuroMillions draw. From time to time, special draws are announced, with the ten prize winners entered into a second draw. From this draw, one randomly selected code will win €1 million, while the remaining nine will receive the original €5,000.
This will be the second time this special draw has taken place, with the first of its kind occurring on Friday 17th February when a man from Co Leitrim walked away with the seven-figure prize on offer. The lucky ticket holder told reporters he was ‘over the moon’ with the €5,000 win and stunned when he discovered the ticket had actually won €1 million.
Entry into the Ireland Only Raffle is included in the price of a EuroMillions line, with a unique code being generated for every line purchased. For more information on how to play, head to the Ireland Only Raffle page.
There may still be a number of weeks to go before the special Ireland Only Raffle draw takes place, but that shouldn’t stop you from winning big. With a EuroMillions jackpot of €83 million to play for on Tuesday night and an estimated top prize of €7.5 million waiting to be won in the Irish Lotto draw this Wednesday, there are plenty of chances to scoop a life-changing prize. Simply select your numbers online or play via any authorised retailer in the Republic. Good luck!
