Ten Guaranteed EuroMillions Millionaires on Friday 30th April
Last Updated: Wednesday 28th April 2021, 14:32
There will be nine more chances than usual to become a millionaire in Friday night’s EuroMillions draw. The Millionaire Maker raffle will give away 10 prizes of £1 million instead of one.
The Millionaire Maker raffle runs alongside the main EuroMillions game and, in a standard draw, it guarantees that one lucky UK player will always bag a £1 million prize.
To win this seven-figure payout, the Millionaire Maker code on your ticket must match up exactly with the code that is randomly selected as the winner. There are four letters and five numbers in a code and each code is unique.
A code is automatically generated at the point of purchase for each line of numbers you play, so you can’t choose your own combination of letters and numbers. The cost of entry is included in the price of a EuroMillions ticket.
When special events like the one scheduled for Friday take place, your odds of becoming a millionaire are significantly increased.
The chances of winning always depend on how many tickets are bought for the draw, but for a typical Friday game this may be somewhere around the 6 million mark. When there’s only one £1 million prize up for grabs, this leaves the odds at around 1 in 6 million. With 10 prizes on offer, you are looking at odds of approximately 1 in 600,000.
You can also win prizes in the main draw on the same night as you win on the Millionaire Maker. The EuroMillions jackpot is up to £36 million following a rollover on Tuesday, while there are 12 other ways to win in every draw if you match some of the numbers.
Checking Your Millionaire Maker Code
Millionaire Maker prizes must be claimed within 180 days of the draw, just like any other National Lottery prize, so make sure to check whether you have won. It’s easy to overlook this code and just focus on checking your EuroMillions numbers, with many £1 million prizes going unclaimed every year.
If you play online, you will automatically be notified if you have won a prize. If you buy your tickets from a store, you may want to use the EuroMillions Checker to help you find out if you have won.
