The Ireland Only Raffle usually offers ten prizes of €5,000 in every draw, having been launched last September to mark a number of EuroMillions changes. Participants have to match the unique code printed on their ticket to one of the winning codes in order to get their hands on the cash.
In the upcoming special draw, there will still be ten winners of €5,000, but those lucky ticket holders will then be entered into a separate draw and one of them will randomly be selected as a millionaire. The other nine players will still receive €5,000 each.
The news of the scheduled special draw comes at an exciting time for Irish EuroMillions players, after a gigantic jackpot of €88.5 million (£76 million) was won in the country last week. The ticket was sold at the Applegreen service station in Lusk, Dublin, sparking excited celebrations in the area.
The top prize rolled over on Friday night, pushing the EuroMillions jackpot back up to €25 million (£21 million) for tonight’s draw. Tickets can be bought online or from authorised retailers in any of the participating countries. Good luck!
