How Does European Millionaire Maker Work?
European Millionaire Maker was first announced in September 2016, alongside several other changes to EuroMillions aimed at generating bigger prizes and creating more winners.
Any player who picks a line for the main EuroMillions draw on 23rd February will automatically be entered into the European Millionaire Maker raffle on the same night, receiving a unique code as proof of entry. Each random, computer-generated combination is made up of four letters and five numbers and, if you match it with one of the 25 drawn, you win £1 million/€1 million/CHF1 million, depending on where you played.
European Millionaire Maker is open to anyone from each of the nine participating countries. You cannot enter European Millionaire Maker without entering EuroMillions, but the cost of playing is included in the price of a ticket for the main game.
There were 25 ecstatic millionaires created in the previous draw in 2016, with France leading the way on eight wins, followed by Spain and Belgium with four each. There were also three winners apiece in the UK and Luxembourg, double celebrations in Portugal and one winner from Switzerland.
