What is the Ireland Only Raffle?
The Ireland Only Raffle is a supplementary game that can only be played if you buy your EuroMillions ticket in Ireland. You will automatically be entered into the raffle and a unique code will be generated for each line of numbers you play.
Ten winning codes are selected in each draw and, in a standard game, the ten players with matching tickets all receive €5,000 each. Special draws are held from time to time when one of the winners will be selected to receive an additional €1 million, but on Friday 26th October it will work slightly differently.
Instead of one player pocketing the extra money, the €1 million prize will be split between all ten winners. Each of the lucky ticket holders will therefore receive a guaranteed €105,000 each in time for Halloween next week.
Special Draws Across Europe
Friday’s special Ireland Only Raffle may only apply for Irish ticket holders, but there are additional ways to win in all eight of the other participating EuroMillions nations. In the UK, for example, there are two guaranteed prizes of €1 million in the Millionaire Maker in every draw. You can also play HotPicks for the chance to win up to €1 million.
France’s My Million, El Millón in Spain and Portugal’s M1lhão also provide extra opportunities to become millionaires, while there are exciting games on offer alongside EuroMillions in Austria, Belgium, Luxembourg and Switzerland. Go to the page on Special Draws to find out more information.
The ultimate target when you play EuroMillions will always be to win the jackpot, and a sequence of five rollovers has pushed the top prize up to £63 million for Friday night’s draw. The month of October started with a huge win when someone from Switzerland snapped up £144 million on Tuesday 2nd, and it could end with a flourish if another fortunate player matches the full line.
You can take part in the next draw by visiting an authorised retailer in any of the nine participating countries or joining an online syndicate. Best of luck!
