Mega Friday always takes place on the final Friday EuroMillions draw of every month and gives UK participants ten chances to win the Millionaire Maker rather than the usual one. There is also a non-cash prize and August’s winners will get to jet off on an exotic holiday to the stunning Song Saa island resort off the coast of Cambodia, where they will stay for seven nights and be treated to the millionaire lifestyle.
To celebrate Millionaire Maker success, players must have a ticket which matches one of the winning codes. It is vital to check the results after every draw to make sure you don’t miss out on a seven-figure windfall, and a couple who won on Tuesday 23rd June have admitted they initially thought they had only picked up £25.
When Ruth and Peter Doyle, from Lyneham in Wiltshire, finally became aware of how lucky they had been, it was just before their eighth wedding anniversary and they were able to hold a big party at the venue where they had got married. Ruth recalled: “I had had an email from the National Lottery telling me I‘d won but it didn’t say how much, just that there was some good news and that I should log into my account. However, I just checked my bank account, and not my National Lottery account, and it said £25 had gone in from the National Lottery so I didn’t check further, as I thought that must have been it.”
To be in with a chance of emulating Ruth and Peter and winning on Millionaire Maker, you will need to pick up a ticket for tonight’s Mega Friday draw. You can enter online or by visiting an authorised retailer in one of the participating countries, and there are stacks of other great prizes up for grabs as well. Best of luck!
