Lotto events are draws in which extra Lotto Millionaire Raffle prizes are distributed. These are sometimes, but not always, to celebrate a specific occasion, such as the Olympics or Christmas.

Christmas 2016 Lotto Raffle Event
In December 2016, Lotto hosted two special raffle events, landing on Christmas Eve and New Yearís Eve. The draw on 24th December saw 200 additional second tier Lotto Millionaire Raffle awards of £20,000 being given away and the 31st December draw offered 100 extra £20,000 prizes.
These awards were in addition to the single prize of £1 million and 20 £20,000 prizes available in every standard Lotto draw. Players received their randomly-generated code for each line they played when they bought their tickets.
