What are EuroMillions raffles? How can I play? Are tickets available online? These are some of the questions to which you will find answers below.
A pan-European lottery whose first draw was held in 2004, EuroMillions is organized in collaboration by the official lottery operators from 9 European countries – the UK, Switzerland, France, Austria, Belgium, Ireland, Luxembourg, Portugal and Spain. Its tickets are sold offline in these countries and online on theLotter.com. Some of the participating countries have decided along the years to add a supplementary raffle game to the so popular EuroMillions draws. In certain countries, such as the UK and France, a raffle code is automatically assigned to any EuroMillions ticket at the moment of the purchase. Other lotteries allow players the possibility to decide whether to enter the additional raffle draw for a chance to win an extra prize.
UK EuroMillions and Millionaire Maker Raffle
Millionaire Maker is one of the most popular EuroMillions raffles. It is a UK draw held in association with the EuroMillions lottery, awarding a £1 Million prize every Tuesday and Friday.

A raffle code will automatically be assigned to your ticket in the moment of the actual purchase from the official UK lottery operator. The Millionaire Maker draws are held soon after the EuroMillions ones and a winning code is chosen randomly among the participating ones. On the last Friday of each month, there is a special draw called Mega Week that makes at least 5 £1 Million winners (sometimes even 10) and also offers a non-cash prize, usually consisting of a luxury holiday.
