The UK version of EuroMillions celebrates special occasions and events throughout the year by giving players the chance to win multiple prizes in the Millionaire Maker draw. Since the launch of the Millionaire Maker (formally Millionaire Raffle), a special draw has always taken place over the Christmas period. Previous years have seen a series of draws take place in the run up to Christmas, to coincide with the EuroMillions draw closest to Christmas Day or, as was the case in 2012, special draws coinciding with both Christmas Day and New Year's Day.
Christmas EuroMillions 2014
The Mega Friday draw landed on Boxing Day in 2014, providing a much-needed boost to the traditional post-Christmas slump. Every UK player who bought a ticket for the draw was also entered into the special Mega Friday Millionaire Maker game, in which ten players who matched the winning codes won the usual £1 million prize plus a VIP trip to Canada to see the beautiful, awe-inspiring phenomenon of the Northern Lights.
The prize included business class flights, meals and a five-star hotel with views over the Rocky Mountains. Winners and their three guests were also able to take advantage of various excursions, including husky-sledding and a guided snowmobile nature trail outing, as well as a tour into Jasper National Park to witness nature’s own light extravaganza!
