EuroMillions to Offer Even More Chances to Win
20th September 2016 10:13 AM
As EuroMillions enters its last week of draws under the current rules, players across the continent can look forward to a host of additional ways to win that will be available to them from next week. Along with an increase in the starting jackpot and a boost to the value of the standard Superdraw prize, the EuroMillions changes will see most of the participating nations offering their country’s players new or enhanced games with fantastic prizes to sit alongside the main draw.
In the UK, there will be two Millionaire Maker prizes of £1 million paid out in each draw, rather than the current one. In addition, Mega Friday, in which multiple players win £1 million and a luxury experience on the last Friday of the month, will be extended to Mega Week with effect from Tuesday 27th September. There will also be a Monthly Bonus Draw with a prize pool of £1 million into which all players can be entered.
The Irish National Lottery will host the Ireland Only Raffle every time EuroMillions is drawn, with ten ticket holders each winning €5,000. Belgium’s My Bonus will work in a similar way, with 200 players guaranteed to win €500 on a Tuesday and 400 prizes of the same amount distributed on Friday to ticket holders whose automatically-generated codes match those drawn on the night
Everyone who plays EuroMillions in Spain, whether for the Tuesday or Friday draw, will be entered into the El Millón raffle on the Friday for the chance to win one prize of €1 million. Portuguese players will take part in a similar game with the same jackpot, going under the name of M1LHAO. Extra Lux in Luxembourg provides increased cash prizes for players who match three or more main numbers in the main EuroMillions draw, whilst 2. Chance in Switzerland sees each player’s five main numbers entered into an additional draw on the same night for the chance to win up to CHF150,000.
Whereas the previous games are all included in the price of a EuroMillions ticket in the individual country, French players must pay a small additional fee to add Etoile+ to their entries, winning a prize if they match either of the Lucky Stars. However, there will be no increase to the cost of playing a standard game of EuroMillions with My Million in France when the changes are made. See the Special Draws section for more information on this exciting array of supplementary draws, and take a look at the EuroMillions Changes page to read about the new rules that come into force after the draw on Friday 23rd September.
Tonight’s jackpot is worth £12 million (€15 million) and you can play EuroMillions online or by buying tickets at authorised retailers in each of the participating nations. Good luck!
