What is EuroMillions lottery Millionaire Raffle?
Millionaire Raffle is an exciting addition to EuroMillions lottery game but it is only available to Euro Millions lotto players in the United Kingdom.
Millionaire Raffle has been around since November 2009. The reason behind introducing Millionaire Raffle was that the price of single EuroMillions lottery ticket was increased by 50 pence for UK residents, due to weak exchange rates between the British Pound Sterling and Euro. The addition of new Millionaire Raffle game was intended to compensate for the ticket price increase to those who were purchasing EuroMillions lottery tickets in the UK.
At least one UK player wins a guaranteed £1 million British Pounds Sterling every week. With the introduction of the Tuesday EuroMillions Draw on Tuesday 10 May 2011 there are now 2 Millionaire Raffle winners each week.
Millionaire Raffle is a great benefit to all EuroMillions players in the UK, because every line of EuroMillions lottery numbers that they enter gives them a bonus chance of winning a separate Millionaire Raffle draw and becoming £1,000,000 richer.
If someone wins the Millionaire Raffle then his or hers regular EuroMillions entry will continue to be valid as normal. That makes it possible to win the Millionaire Raffle and also win the jackpot or other EuroMillions lottery prizes during the same draw.
The chances of winning the Millionaire Raffle game by playing EuroMillions lottery in the UK during a Tuesday draw are estimated at around 1 in 3,500,000 and during Friday draw 1 in 9,200,000. The odds of winning in a Millionaire Raffle game greatly depends on the number of individual tickets expected to be sold within the United Kingdom.
How Does Millionaire Raffle work with EuroMillions lottery?
EuroMillions Millionaire Raffle numbers consist of three letters and six numbers, which are generated randomly (for example GPC 087739)
Millionaire Raffle as the name implies is a raffle game, so one raffle number is randomly selected out of all raffle numbers available for a particular EuroMillions lottery draw in similar fashion like in the ElGordo lottery or other raffle games.
To win £1 million raffle prize, the number on your ticket slip has to match exactly the 9-digit number drawn.
If you are a lucky Millionaire Raffle game winner, you have 180 days from the date of the draw to claim your prize according to EuroMillions rules.
