The Millionaire Raffle game on Friday 26th July, 2013, will create 100 winners, with each one winning a prize of £1 million. The Millionaire Raffle game staged the same kind of draw in July 2012 to mark the launch of the Olympic Games in London, and on that occasion 97 of the 100 winners came forward to collect their £1 million prize, setting the current world record for the most millionaires created by a single lottery draw. If one, two or three more of the 100 winners claims their prize this year, the existing world record will be broken in great style.
Millionaire Raffle can only be played by those who buy EuroMillions entries in the UK. Every EuroMillions entry purchased automatically gives the player a unique Millionaire Raffle number, and if that number matches the number selected in the actual draw, the lucky player wins a cool £1,000,000. Under normal circumstances there is just one winner in every draw, but from time to time special ‘event’ draws take place. The July 2012 draw mentioned previously was the biggest of these to have been staged thus far, and the draw coming up this Friday 26th July will be just as big.
Although the special 100 Millionaire Raffle Winners event will bestow millionaire status on 100 times more players than usual, there will be no increase in the cost of EuroMillions tickets. That means players will get phenomenal value for money, and our guess is that many player will choose to make the most of the situation by purchasing multiple tickets. The more tickets a player buys, the more chance he or she has of winning one of the Millionaire Raffle prizes that are available. We should also remember that every ticket purchased also gives the player a 1 in 13 chance of winning a EuroMillions prize of some kind, including the jackpot itself!
Tickets for the EuroMillions game can be bought for up to eight consecutive draws in advance, so those of you who are interested in winning one of the 100 Millionaire Raffle prizes at the end of this month can already secure your chance. Simply make sure that your numbers are entered for the EuroMillions games up to, and including, Friday 26th July, 2013.
