EuroMillions Players Dream of August Mega Friday Success
Last Updated: Friday 26th August 2016, 09:32 am
August’s Mega Friday draw promises to be a real treat for UK EuroMillions players, and will be the final edition of the game before the introduction of Mega Week on Tuesday 27th September as part of changes to EuroMillions. The new format will give players the chance to win £1 million and an incredible non-cash prize in both the last Tuesday and the last Friday draws of every month.
Lottery officials have saved the best until last for this edition of Mega Friday. Five winning ticket holders will not only benefit from a cash prize of £1 million, but they will also be treated to the holiday of a lifetime in Brazil, fresh off the success of the Team GB squad at the 2016 Rio Olympics. The trip will be made up of three very different, yet equally as thrilling stages, and promises to be an unforgettable fortnight for any winner and a guest of their choosing.
The holiday begins with a three-night stay at the luxurious Belmond Hotel Das Cataratas in Rio, which will include a moonlit tour of the world-famous Iguazu Falls. The 2.7 kilometre wide wonder, which sits on the border between Brazil and Argentina, is one of the most iconic cascades on the planet and will be available for the winner to see from inside a helicopter.
The trip continues with four nights in the lavish Belmond Copacabana Palace, a mere stone's throw away from Copacabana beach. Of course, no trip to Rio would be complete without a visit to see the towering figure of Christ the Redeemer and Sugarloaf Mountain. As if all that excitement wasn’t enough, the break concludes with a seven-night stay at the Casas Brancas Hotel in the picturesque resort of Buzios, where the winners will enjoy a variety of watersports, including surfing, jet skiing and paragliding.
If you would like to be in with a chance of winning one of the five Mega Friday prizes on offer, EuroMillions tickets can be purchased online or from any authorised retailer ahead of tonight’s draw. There is also the small matter of an estimated jackpot of £20 million just waiting to be won - if you match the entire winning line this evening, you could design your own fabulous getaway to Rio or anywhere else in the world. Good luck!
