The Millionaire Raffle will be of interest to all UK players of the Euro Millions, as every ticket purchased for either Tuesday or Friday's Euromillion draw sees ticket holders being given a bonus chance of winning a separate prize in the Millionaire Raffle!
Each Millionaire Raffle will see individual ticket holders gaining an extra chance to win £1,000,000 simply by matching their raffle ticket to the number automatically generated for each EuroMillions ticket purchased. This number comprises of three letters followed by six numbers (e.g. RCH345627). However, as it is a raffle, you have to match each digit exactly in order to be in with a chance of scooping that million pound prize.
How to Check Your Results
You can check your Millionaire Raffle numbers easily when you check your Euro Millions result, so rest assured there is no other website you need to visit in order to find the result. Simply look out for the results page and find the raffle numbers below the main numbers, and find out now if you are an instant millionaire!
The Millionaire Raffle Game
The Millionaire Raffle guarantees that every week one extra person in the UK will win £1,000,000 in every draw, as well as still having the option to win on their Euro Millions ticket. The odds of winning the raffle are based purely on the amount of Euromillions tickets sold in each draw, so your chances can vary depending on ticket sales. As an estimate however, on Tuesday's draw your chances of winning are approximately 1 in 3,500,000, whereas on Friday's draw it is 1 in 9,200,000.
If you have won the Millionaire Raffle and matched the ticket details exactly, you will need to ensure you have claimed your prize within 180 days or risk your ticket being declared null and void. If this happens, your prize will be allocated to the UK fund for good causes.
However, if you play online, your numbers will be stored and you will be instantly notified if you have a winning ticket, either for EuroMillions or for the Millionaires Raffle, so you don't have to worry about losing your ticket!
