New Year's EuroMillions Draws
What could be better than starting the New Year with a bank balance that would allow you to fulfil even the most ambitious of 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 game.
As you will see from the figures below, some £1 million prizes have gone 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!
The year came to an end in fine style for EuroMillions players in the UK, as the National Lottery put up ten guaranteed prizes of £1 million in the Millionaire Maker raffle for the final draw of 2017 on Friday 29th December, rather than the usual two. A jackpot of €38.9 million was also won by a single ticket from Ireland, which turned out to belong to a family from Dublin. They said they wanted to explore a new business venture, go on exotic holidays and buy a new home.

There were no specific New Year’s promotions for EuroMillions in 2016, as Mega Week had occurred just before Christmas and given a total of ten UK ticket holders the chance to win a stunning skiing holiday to Switzerland, as well as £1 million each. Take a look at the Christmas page for more information.
UK players had the a chance to start 2016 with a bang by winning one of the great Mega Week prizes during the festive Christmas period. The draws on Tuesday 22nd December and Friday 25th December both produced five UK Millionaire Maker winners, with all ten lucky players also getting to enjoy a luxury break in a Swedish mountain chalet.
UK players got 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.
