UK Millionaire Maker
All players of the UK version of EuroMillions are automatically entered into the UK Millionaire Maker draw which guarantees two lucky players will win £1 million in every draw. A Millionaire Maker code is automatically generated for each line of EuroMillions numbers purchased and consists of four letters and five numbers (e.g. HHHH12345). Each code is then entered into a raffle where two are picked at random in a standard draw to win the prize.
The UK Millionaire Maker will be changing in 2019. More special events are set to be scheduled to create lots of winners at once, starting with a draw in the spring to give away 40 prizes of £1 million. The number of guaranteed millionaires in each standard draw will drop from two to one to help make this possible.
To win one of the guaranteed £1 million prizes, your code has to match all of the characters in the order they appear. A partial match does not win a prize.
The most recent winning UK Millionaire Maker codes can be found below. Check them against the combinations on your EuroMillions tickets to see if you are due a £1 million prize.

About UK Millionaire Maker
The EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker guarantees that at least two players in the UK will win £1 million in every EuroMillions draw. As the two games are played separately, it is possible to win a prize in both the main EuroMillions game and Millionaire Maker, so players are advised to check their tickets carefully.
How it Works
The odds of winning the UK Millionaire Maker game vary depending on the number of players in each game as at least two codes are guaranteed to be picked out from all the UK entries in each draw. For example, a Tuesday EuroMillions draw tends to attract fewer players, meaning your odds of winning in midweek are better than on a Friday.
Millionaire Maker codes can start with the letter H, J, M, T, V, X or Z , and the chances of winning are exactly the same for each code. Visit the How it Works page for a more detailed explanation about how the Millionaire Maker codes are selected and how the odds vary from draw to draw.
European Millionaire Maker works in a similar way, but is open to everyone who plays a line in any of the nine participating EuroMillions nations, and the first letter of the code will be different in each country.
How to Claim
If you have won a UK Millionaire Maker prize, then you need to claim within 180 days of the draw date, as per the UK EuroMillions Rules. If you do not claim in time, your prize, and the interest that has accumulated, will be allocated to the lottery’s Good Causes fund.
