The UK version of EuroMillions celebrates special occasions and events throughout the year by giving players the chance to win multiple prizes in the UK Millionaire Maker draw. Since the launch of the UK Millionaire Maker (formerly 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 Mega Week 2015
UK players were given twice as much to get excited about in December 2015 with a Mega Week rather than the usual Mega Friday. There were five winners of the UK Millionaire Maker on Tuesday 22nd December and another five on Christmas Day itself, making ten lucky ticket holders instantly £1 million richer and giving them all a fabulous non-cash prize.
All ten winners were able to jet off to Sweden on business-class flights with up to seven guests, before being transferred via helicopter to the stunning Copperhill Mountain Lodge in the ski resort of Äre. During their seven-night stay at The Villa, winners could decide between a number of thrilling activities such as a snowmobile safari, a two-hour zip-line experience and kayaking, depending on when they travelled. The winners also had use of the resort's spa facilities, a professional chef on hand to prepare three meals every day, and received a generous allowance for drinks.
Below are details of all previous Christmas EuroMillions Millionaire Maker and Millionaire Raffle draws:
The Mega Friday draw landed on Boxing Day in 2014, and ten players who matched the winning UK Millionaire Maker 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 a stay at a five-star hotel with views over the Rocky Mountains and various excursions. You can find out more about Mega Friday by visiting the dedicated page.
This draw was held on New Year's Eve. For more information, view the New Year's EuroMillions page.
The Christmas EuroMillions draw in 2012 was an exciting time for UK EuroMillions players as, across two draws, they had the chance to win 50 £1 million prizes. The first draw was held on Christmas Day and offered 25 £1 million prizes. The second festive draw took place on New Year's Day 2013 and again had 25 £1 million prizes up for grabs. Of these 50 prizes, 46 were claimed.
The 2011 festive season saw the first Millionaires Month take place. This special promotion, which started in November 2011, gave players the chance to win one of 50 Millionaire Raffle prizes, each worth £1 million, over the space of four weeks and eight EuroMillions draws. The first special draw was held on Friday 25th November and 18 Millionaire Raffle codes were drawn, each worth £1 million. The following seven Millionaire Raffle draws took place with the normal £1 million prize up for grabs before the finale on 23rd December, when 25 raffle codes were drawn. Of the 50 prizes in total offered, 46 were claimed.
