What is the European Millionaire Maker?
The new raffle will be a joint game offered by all nine participating countries. While it will be known as the European Millionaire Maker in the UK, it will have different names in the other nations, such as Lluvia de Millones in Spain or MillionenRegen in Austria. Every EuroMillions player will have the chance to take part and there will be multiple winners.
How Will it Work?
Everyone who plays EuroMillions on the night of a European Millionaire Maker draw will receive a unique, randomly-generated code on their ticket, with the first letter corresponding to the country where the entry was purchased. For UK players, the code will always start with H, J, M, T, V, X or Z, and will be followed by three more letters and five numbers.
Multiple winning codes will then be drawn at random on the night, and as the codes are unique it guarantees that a specified number of players will become millionaires across Europe. Visit the new European Millionaire Maker page to find out more about how the game works.
How Will it Differ from UK Millionaire Maker?
For UK players, there won’t be much of a difference. For draws offering the special European Millionaire Maker game, players are still given just the normal single code on their ticket. This code is then entered into the draw for both the UK Millionaire Maker raffle and the European Millionaire Maker game, giving them an extra chance to win £1 million.
How Many Prizes Will be Offered?
Multiple millionaires will be created in each draw. The amount will be announced ahead of each draw, but the first one will have a guaranteed 25 millionaires across Europe.
When Will Draws Take Place?
There will be a couple of European Millionaire Maker events every year, with the first one scheduled to be held on Friday 28th October 2016.
