The EuroMillions is a pan-European lottery held in 9 countries: the UK, Switzerland, France, Austria, Belgium, Ireland, Luxembourg, Portugal, and Spain. You can purchase your tickets for the main game in either one of the 9 countries or online, but for a local twist, you get to play the EuroMillions raffles.
Some of the participating countries host these special events to give players the chance to win some extra prizes. We are going to tell you all about the main EuroMillions raffles and the prizes you can win, as well as the main rules for these events.
- Can you win a EuroMillions raffle without matching any of the lottery numbers?
Yes, you can. In fact, you don’t need to have any of the EuroMillions winning numbers to win the raffle prize. All you need is the winning raffle code on your ticket.
- Can you win both the EuroMillions lottery and the EuroMillions raffle?
Yes, you can. If you have the winning numbers for a EuroMillions prize, as well as the winning raffle code, you win both prizes. This is the beauty of the EuroMillions.
- What are the odds of winning a EuroMillions raffle?
The odds of winning a raffle prize in the EuroMillions depend on ticket sales. Each ticket comes with a raffle code, which means that the odds are better when the sales are lower rather than higher.
