European Millionaire Maker Set For First Draw
Last Updated: Thursday 27th October 2016, 10:16 am
EuroMillions players will be able to enjoy a new game on Friday night as the first European Millionaire Maker takes place, guaranteeing more big winners across the continent. There will be 25 millionaires created in tomorrow’s inaugural draw, and everyone who buys a ticket is entered automatically at no extra charge.
The game was announced as one of the recent changes to EuroMillions, and works in exactly the same way as the domestic Millionaire Maker. UK players will be given a unique nine-digit code on their ticket as usual, and this code will be entered into both the regular Millionaire Maker draw and the brand new European Millionaire Maker.
Two Millionaire Maker codes will be drawn as always, but the European Millionaire Maker will then produce 25 more random winning codes. As the game is being played in all nine participating countries to spread the excitement, the winners are set to come from every corner of Europe and each lucky ticket holder will pocket £1million/€1 million. The game is known by different names in other nations, such as EuroMillionaires Raffle Draw in Ireland and Pluies de Millionnaires in France.
The winning codes will be published on National-Lottery.com straight after the draw has been held on Friday night and, as the first letter of each code corresponds to where the ticket was sold, it will be easy to see which nation has had the most success. UK codes start with H, J, M, T, V, X or Z. Every combination has an equal chance of winning, with the odds depending entirely on how many tickets are bought, and it does not matter whether you win a prize on the main EuroMillions game or not.
You can find out more about European Millionaire Maker ahead of tomorrow’s game, on what should be an exciting night for ticket holders everywhere. The game will only be played on select dates throughout the year, so there is sure to be a surge of interest as players go in search of a life-changing seven-figure sum.
The EuroMillions jackpot also stands at £15 million (€17 million), after a Belgian participant landed Tuesday night’s top prize of £44.7 million (€50.1 million) to bring a run of three rollovers to an end. If you fancy scooping the jackpot, or one of the 27 prizes of £1 million in Millionaire Maker and the new European Millionaire Maker, tickets can be bought online or from authorised retailers. Good luck!
