Millionaire Raffle

EuroMillions Millionaire Raffle logoThe EuroMillions Millionaire Raffle guarantees a new millionaire from every EuroMillions lottery draw that takes place, which means two every week! Every EuroMillions line you buy will give you one entry into the Millionaire Raffle (UK EuroMillions lottery only), so you do not need to do anything other than buy a lottery ticket to take part. This inclusion in the Millionaire raffle is why tickets in the UK are slightly more expensive at £2, rather than €2 in most other European countries taking part.

Your ticket will display your unique Millionaire Raffle reference made up of 3 letters and 6 numbers. After each draw an Automated Draw Machine (ADM) will select one winner from all the tickets bought, which is why there is always a winner.

Millionaires Raffle Draw
The draw for the EuroMillions Millionaire Raffle is conducted by Camelot who select one ticket at random using the ADM. This has been independently checked by the University of Hertfordshire, Statistical Analysis Department for fairness. The ADM is also certified by Gaming Laboratories International (GLI) for randomness of numbers generated. As there are so many tickets bought for each raffle there is no way of sticking all the entries into a hat like in a typical raffle, so that is why the ADM is used. It makes the whole process much quicker and fairer, so that a new millionaire is made shortly after each EuroMillions draw.

Odds of Winning the Millionaires Raffle
According to the National Lottery website, the odds of winning Tuesday’s Millionaire Raffle draw are 1 in 3.5m and Friday’s is 1 in 9.2m based on assumed sales figures. Therefore your chances of winning Tuesday’s Millionaire Raffle are 3 times more likely. However, the EuroMillions jackpot will likely be lower on a Tuesday as there are fewer entries to the lottery.

You can find out if you have won the Millionaire Raffle as part of BBC Friday night EuroMillions show. If you want to know the results for the Millionaire Raffle on Tuesday then you can get log in to the National Lottery website on Tuesday night from about 10:30pm  onwards. Friday night’s results will also be online later in the evening after the show.
