How Did Your Country Do in the First European Millionaire Maker?
31st October 2016 10:25 AM
Friday 28th October saw the first EuroMillions European raffle draw since its creation was announced earlier this year. French ticket holders came out on top in the special draw, known to them as Pluies de Millionnaires, to UK players as European Millionaire Maker and to the Irish as the EuroMillionaire Raffle Draw, collecting eight of the 25 prizes of €1 million/£1 million on offer.
Belgium and Spain took joint second place, each creating four new instant millionaires, with UK and Luxembourg players both correctly matching three of the winning codes. There was no winner created in the draw in Austria, where it is known as MillionenRegen, but the country’s lottery pledged to create an additional €1 million award for one of its citizens in that eventuality and the holder of code NQRN 10368 was the lucky recipient. You can see a full list of the winning codes at the EuroMillions Results page.
In the main draw, there was a €17.3 million (£15.6 million) jackpot winner from Portugal, the second top prize win of the week. A Belgian player had scooped €50.1 million (£44.7 million) on Tuesday 25th October. The jackpot for Tuesday 1st November will now stand at €17 million (£15 million).
With big money available in the main draw, seven-figure sums in European Millionaire Maker and a host of other fantastic prizes available in the country-specific draws like the Ireland Only Raffle and El Millón in Spain, players are urged to check their tickets carefully so as not to miss out on a significant payday.
If you would like a shot at one of the many prizes on offer tomorrow night, you can play EuroMillions online or visit an authorised retailer in any of the nine participating countries. Good luck!
