100 UK Millionaires Raffle – Its Tonight!

After a week of incredible ticket sales, queues at lottery retailers and TV advertising campaigns, the night is finally upon us! The 100 UK Millionaire Raffle draw will take place tonight, Friday, 27th July 2012 along with the Euromillions draw which has a mind boggling estimated jackpot of €140 / £105 million. But what would YOU do with the money if you won? Have you been fantasy buying like the team here at World Lottery, in expectation of your million pound raffle win?

Many lottery winners initially spend their winnings on similar items, interestingly enough. Cars, naturally, feature highly on the list, with most winners buying a new car in celebration of their win. But it’s not always Ferraris and Maserati’s – winners Lesley and Robin Palmer who won £2.1 million on the Lotto in June 2012 bought a brand new Peugeot, and Stuart Parsons, who won £100,000 on a scratch card bought a Mini Cooper for his girlfriend. Also featuring on the most purchased lists are hot tubs, bought by a third of millionaire winners, walk in wardrobes, purchased by 28% and one in five new millionaires built a games room.

In terms of the odds for you scooping a winning code in this raffle, they are difficult to assess as they change depending on ticket sales – but, on the plus side there are 99 more chances to win than in a normal Millionaire Raffle, so it’s still all to pay for!

But if it’s that big EuroMillions jackpot you are after, you could do worse than pick some of the most popular numbers to be drawn. Number 50 is drawn the most often, appearing in 70 draws to date, closely followed by 12 appearing 62 times. 4 and 19 have featured 61 times, with number 14 hot on its heels, having made 59 appearances. The most common pair of Lucky Stars? Numbers 2 and 6, appearing together a whopping 20 times.

Whatever numbers you pick, we wish you the best of luck tonight and hope you have bought your tickets in plenty of time. Remember if you can’t get out of work easily, you can also buy your tickets online, so whatever you do, don’t forget, as you have to be in it, to win it!
