Following the introduction of a number of changes to EuroMillions in September of this year, European Millionaire Maker was born and has waited over a month to make its first appearance. The game, known as EuroMillionaires Raffle Draw in Ireland, Pluies de Millionnaires in France, as well as a variety of other names in different countries, works in the same way as UK Millionaire Maker and France’s My Million, however, other players on the continent may be a little less familiar with the format.
If you buy a ticket for Friday’s EuroMillions draw, you will automatically receive free entry into the European Millionaire Maker draw in the form of a unique four letter, five number code. One code will be generated for every line played, meaning that the more EuroMillions lines you play, the more chances you will have of become a millionaire. The first letter of each code varies depending on the country in which you play and full details can be found on the European Millionaire Maker page.
Every code has an equal chance of being drawn and you can still win regardless of how successful your numbers were in the main EuroMillions draw. It is worth noting that the odds for this game vary and depend on how many players have also purchased a ticket for the draw, so you will stand a better chance of scooping the seven-figure reward the fewer people that enter. Once the draw has been made, simply check the code (or codes) on your ticket and, if at least one of them matches, you can start your weekend safe in the knowledge that you are a millionaire.
Friday’s draw will also see ticket holders play for a jackpot worth an incredible £15 million (€17 million). So, to be in with a chance of winning the top prize or one of 25 rewards of £1 million/€1 million, EuroMillions tickets can be purchased online or from an authorised retailer in any of the nine participating countries. Best of luck, and don’t forget to check those codes!
