How it Works
The game works in the same way as UK Millionaire Maker. Players will receive a unique raffle code alongside every EuroMillions line they play. The code will be generated at random and will consist of four letters and five numbers (for example ABCD12345). The first letter of the code will correspond to the country where the ticket was purchased:
|Country||Starting Letter of Raffle Code|
|Austria||A, N, O or W|
|Switzerland||R or S|
|United Kingdom||H, J, M, T, V, X or Z|
The winning codes will be selected at random, with one code allocated to every winning ticket drawn, giving players another opportunity to win a prize on top of the awards offered in the main EuroMillions game. Visit the page on how the UK Millionaire Maker works to find out more about how codes are selected and how the odds vary depending on the number of tickets sold.
When European Millionaire Maker games are held, the code for the European version of the raffle will be the same as the one for your entry into UK Millionaire Maker, giving you yet another chance to win £1 million!
Online players will be notified automatically if they have won a prize; if they buy physical tickets, they are advised to check their tickets carefully to see if their European Millionaire Maker code matches one of those drawn.
