How are My Million Raffle codes generated?
The My Million raffle codes are automatically assigned to each EuroMillions ticket bought in France the moment this is registered in the official system of the French lottery operator. The My Million raffle codes are made up of 9 digits – 2 letters and 7 numerical figures, going from AA 000 0000 to ZZ 999 9999.
The My Million codes for tickets of up to 10 lines are randomly generated from the range of available codes for the respective draw from AA 000 0000 to VV 358 2800. The My Million codes for tickets of more than 10 lines are randomly generated from the range of available codes for the respective draw from VV 358 2801 to ZZ 999 9999.
What are the odds of winning the My Million raffle?
The odds of winning the My Million raffle are different for each France EuroMillions draw. They are not the same as the odds of winning the EuroMillions. They depend entirely on ticket sales. The more My Million codes in the running, the greater the odds of winning the prize.
Can two people have the same My Millions code?
No, they can’t. Each My Million code is unique and it is assigned to a single EuroMillions ticket. After a code is printed on a ticket, it can no longer be used for other tickets. Even though all the My Million codes are random, they are all unique.
How is the My Million winning code selected?
The My Million raffle draws take place soon after the EuroMillions lottery draws. The codes are chosen randomly by the French official operator’s system. All draws are supervised and approved by a judicial officer.
Can there be more than one My Million winner?
No, there can’t. Not on regular draws at least. Each My Million raffle offers one prize worth €1 million and it goes to the holder of the winning code. Since the code is unique, it can only appear on one ticket. This means that the My Million raffle prizes will not be shared by more winners.
However, there are special events when there are several My Million prizes available. In this case, several winning raffle codes are drawn. The only case when several winners could share the same My Million prize is if the winning ticket belongs to a EuroMillions syndicate.
Does the code influence the odds of winning?
No, it doesn’t. All the My Million raffle codes are generated at random and the winning code is also selected randomly. The code itself does not influence your odds of winning the €1 million prize.
The History of the My Million Raffle
The My Million raffle was launched by the French official lottery operator – La Francaise des Jeux – in 2014 to replace Joker+. This is no longer played together with the EuroMillions lottery, but as a stand-alone lotto game.
The Joker + offered EuroMillions players from France the opportunity to enter a supplementary game with a top prize of €250,000. The My Million raffle distributes a €1 million prize on every single EuroMillions draw, so the stakes have been raised significantly. The participation to the My Million raffle is entirely free of charge.
The first My Million draw took place on February 4, 2014. Since then, the FDJ has held many My Million winners, sometimes even more than one per draw. On special occasions, La Francaise des Jeux organizes special draws of the raffle, offering several €1 million prizes on the same draw.
