How are the El Millón raffle codes generated?
First, you have to purchase a Spanish EuroMillions ticket. On each ticket, an alphanumeric code is printed automatically. This is generated randomly, so you can’t choose it yourself. On both the Tuesday and Friday draw, a winning code is selected randomly for the €1 million prize. The codes are usually comprised of 3 letters and 5 numbers (eg. ABC12345) and they are generated with no extra cost.
Can I enter the El Millón raffle if I live outside Spain?
Of course you can! Spain EuroMillions tickets are available online for players from all over the world. You make the purchase online and your physical tickets are bought in Spain and the codes are printed immediately with them. This means that you actually get a real Spanish ticket and participate in the El Millón in a matter of clicks! When you play EuroMillions online, you also have the advantage of receiving an instant notification in case you match the code.
Why should I participate in the El Millón raffle?
The El Millón raffle is a great opportunity to win an extra prize every Tuesday and Friday without guessing any of the 5 main numbers or the 2 Lucky Stars in the EuroMillions. It’s also completely free with any Spain EuroMillions ticket.
When was the El Millón raffle introduced?
El Millón (in English, The Million) was one of the exciting new EuroMillions features introduced on September 27th, 2016. This was an important day for the EuroMillions. The minimum jackpot was increased from €15 million to €17 million, the 12th star was introduced, and the EuroMillions raffles were created. The odds of winning the El Millón Raffle depend on the number of codes that are generated, so they change every week.
In Spain, the first El Millón was won by a player from Cádiz. Since then, several €1 million prizes have been won all over Spain. However, on Friday, February 24th, 2017 El Millón increased the number of winners from 1 to 5 and it was called “El Millón Plus”. Hopefully, this could be repeated in the future!
