Mega Friday

What was Mega Friday?

Mega Friday was the name given to the final Friday Millionaire Maker game of every month. Played alongside EuroMillions, the promotion gave multiple UK players the chance to win £1 million in addition to an exciting non-cash prize. The game was introduced to coincide with Millionaire Raffle changing its name to Millionaire Maker in October 2014. The game was extended in September 2016 to become Mega Week.

What Sort of Prizes Could I Win?

The game launched on Friday October 31st 2014 by giving away 25 prizes of £1 million plus a luxury holiday to the Richard Branson-owned Makepeace Island on Australia’s Sunshine Coast. Mega Friday allows the game’s brand new millionaires to enjoy the trappings of their wealth, such as sports cars or luxury holidays, without having to eat into their winnings.

How Did Players Take Part in Mega Friday?

Players who bought tickets for the final Friday EuroMillions draw of the month would be automatically entered into the Millionaire Maker Mega Friday draw at no extra cost. This is still the case, but from September 2016 the same applies to anyone who plays in either the final Tuesday or Friday draw of each month.

Just like the currently operating Mega Week draws, Mega Friday and Millionaire Maker are open only to EuroMillions players based in the UK, where tickets can be purchased up to four weeks in advance of the draw or continuously via Direct Debit when you play online.

If you bought your EuroMillions tickets online, then you will receive an email to inform you that you are due a prize and you won’t have to worry about keeping that valuable ticket safe.
