New Year's EuroMillions
What could be better than starting the New Year with a bank balance that would allow you to fulfil even the most ambitious of New Year's resolutions? To make sure that you don't miss out on your prize if your numbers come up, make sure that you check your tickets straight after the draw or, better still, buy tickets online and receive an automatic notification if you win a prize in the main EuroMillions draw or in the UK Millionaire Maker. As you will see from the figures below, no fewer than 5 £1 million prizes went unclaimed and the unfortunate ticket holders started the New Year with a stack of Christmas bills to be paid instead of a stack of bills in the bank!
New Year's EuroMillions 2014
While there were no specific New Year’s promotions for EuroMillions, UK players did get to take part in the last Mega Friday of the year on Boxing Day. Ten lucky winners received £1 million each and a trip to see the Northern Lights in Canada. Visit the Mega Friday page to learn more about these very special draws.
