EuroMillions to Create Ten Millionaires to Celebrate 2016 Paralympics
Last Updated: Thursday 8th September 2016, 09:42
Team GB’s success at this summer’s Olympic Games in Rio left the nation spellbound and saw the country record its best-ever overseas medal haul. In keeping with the season’s sporting theme, EuroMillions is set to celebrate the launch of the Paralympic Games by giving ten players the chance to win £1 million and the ‘Ultimate Rio Experience’ in the next two draws.
To celebrate the UK’s glittering shower of gold, silver and bronze medals in Brazil, Lotto rewarded 67 players with prizes ranging from £50,000 to £1 million to recognise Team GB’s superhuman efforts. The hope is that the nation’s Paralympic athletes will perform as notably, and to ensure they receive the same level of support, EuroMillions aims to start the celebrations early.
The £1 million prize itself would certainly be worth winning, but imagine instantly being able to enjoy this vast sum of money with a trip to the other side of the world. For each of the ten lucky winners this will be a reality as they are transported to Rio to soak up the sun and the samba. On the adventure, each winner, as well as three guests of their choice, will spend ten nights in five-star luxury at the Copacabana Palace, a spectacular hotel that is a mere stone’s throw from arguably the world’s most famous beach.
The winner and their guests will also get to take a helicopter flight over Rio, including great views of the iconic Christ the Redeemer which overlooks the breathtaking city. The amazing journey doesn't stop there, with a jeep safari through the Tijuca Forest offering an escape to the country to view awe-inspiring waterfalls, exotic birds, colossal butterflies and an array of magnificent mammals. There will also be time for the winning group to party long into the night with a buffet dinner and samba show that will showcase all the fun and excitement of Rio’s famous carnival. This fantastic prize is certainly not one to be missed!
The event will take place across two draws; Friday 9th September and Tuesday 13th September, with five millionaires set to be made on each night. To be in with a chance of winning a seven-figure sum and the holiday of a lifetime, tickets are available to purchase online or from any authorised retailer throughout the UK. Best of luck!
