Mega Friday

From September 2016, Mega Friday was replaced by Mega Week, which you can read about at the dedicated page. The following is for information purposes only.

Mega Friday was the name given to the last Friday EuroMillions draw of each month, in which the normal £1 million for a single UK player who matched the winning Millionaire Maker code was replaced by a number of awards of £1 million plus a luxury non-cash prize. Anyone who played the main EuroMillions game on the final Friday of the month was instantly entered into the Mega Friday Millionaire Maker draw at no extra cost. Mega Friday became Mega Week in September 2016.

The first Mega Friday draw was held on 31st October 2014, with 25 players winning £1 million and a fortnight’s VIP trip to Makepeace Island in Australia, including business class flights and helicopter transfers. Other prizes offered included trips to Canada to see the Northern Lights and a choice of holidays of a lifetime to Australia, Peru or Brazil.

The holidays came with luxurious travel arrangements, meals either included or an allowance for food provided and five-star accommodation, allowing the new millionaires to enjoy the trappings of their new lifestyle without having to dip into their seven-figure windfall.
