Mega Week is a monthly promotion which gives EuroMillions players in the UK an even better chance of winning sensational prizes. It is held in the final week of every month, adding an additional element of excitement for ticket holders on a Tuesday and Friday.
If the last EuroMillions draw of a month is a Tuesday draw, Mega Week will take place the week earlier, allowing both draws to occur in the same week.

27th September 2016
The first Mega Week will see ten UK players win £1 million each as well as the opportunity to go on a luxury 100-day holiday around the world in the Tuesday draw on 27th September. The winners, each accompanied by one guest, will travel to a variety of different locations, staying in five-star hotels, enjoying special activities and receiving a generous allowance for lunch and dinner everywhere they go. They can choose whether to go on a continuous trip to all the locations or enjoy up to seven different trips, flying in business class to each stop.
There is a choice of two wonderful itineraries. Winners can go to Venice and the Amalfi Coast in Italy, Cape Town in South Africa, Male in the Maldives, Auckland and Christchurch in New Zealand, Bora Bora in Tahiti, Los Angeles in the USA and the Mexican capital of Mexico City. Alternatively, they may opt to visit Sugar Beach in St Lucia, New York, Hawaii, Sydney in Australia, Manilla in the Philippines, Tokyo in Japan and Bangkok in Thailand.
30th September 2016
Mega Week will conclude with a thrilling Friday draw, when a EuroMillions Superdraw jackpot of £109 million (guaranteed €130 million) will be offered. This is a specially enhanced top prize to mark the recent EuroMillions changes.
How does Mega Week work?
Each edition of Mega Week will be different, but there will be a promotion running on both a Tuesday and a Friday evening, and UK players will be automatically entered into the game as soon as they buy a EuroMillions ticket for the relevant draw. Anyone purchasing an entry for the Tuesday draw during Mega Week will be in with a chance of winning that night's big prize, which will consist of £1 million and a luxurious experience that reflects their status as new millionaires. If the last EuroMillions draw of a month is a Tuesday draw, Mega Week will take place the week earlier, allowing both draws to occur in the same week.
History of Mega Week
Mega Week will be launched on Tuesday 27th September 2016 as the replacement for the Mega Friday draw, where multiple players win £1 million each plus a fabulous non-cash prize, such as an exotic holiday, if they match the night's winning UK Millionaire Maker codes.
Mega Week first appeared as a one-off promotion in December 2015, when there were five UK Millionaire Maker winners on Tuesday 22nd December as well as on Christmas Day. The ten lucky ticket holders all received £1 million and were able to travel to Sweden for a luxurious stay at the Copperhill Mountain Lodge in Åre.
