If you match one of the winning Millionaire Maker codes drawn on the night, you’ll fly out in business class with three guests and stay for ten nights at the famed Copacabana Palace. As well as staying in five-star accommodation, you will be treated to a helicopter flight over the Christ the Redeemer statue, enjoy a jeep safari through the Tijuca forest and immerse yourself in the carnival spirit during a special samba show and dinner.
The prizes are being offered as a way of saying thanks for supporting Great Britain and Northern Ireland’s Paralympians. A minimum of 28p from every £1 spent on EuroMillions, as well as other National Lottery games like Lotto and Thunderball, goes towards the Good Causes Fund, which benefits a range of worthy projects, including sport.
The money helps to fund Olympians and Paralympians and was credited as a major factor behind the success of Team GB at the recent Rio 2016 Olympics. It is now the turn of the Paralympic team to take centre stage, and hopes are high that they can again finish near the top of the medals table. Team GB finished third in the London 2012 standings, with an astonishing 120 medals, and it promises to be another thrilling week and a half of action in Rio.
It has already been an exciting start to the month for EuroMillions players, with five ticket holders splitting a jackpot of £32.8 million (€39.2 million) in last Friday night’s draw, and there are a number of changes to look forward to later in September. For now, there is a top prize of £20 million (€24 million) to dream about in this Friday’s game, plus the first five of the ten special prizes in support of the Paralympics.
You can enter now by playing online or visiting any authorised retailer in one of the participating countries, and you can take pride in knowing that you are supporting Team GB’s Paralympians whether you win a prize or not. Who knows, you could even get the chance to make your own trip to Rio. Best of luck!
