Mega Week is a EuroMillions promotion which gives ticket holders in the UK the opportunity to play for even more phenomenal prizes in the last week of every month. Mega Week draws are held on both Tuesdays and Fridays and will produce multiple winners of £1 million and a luxurious lifestyle prize.
How Does Mega Week Work?
To take part in Mega Week, you simply need to buy a EuroMillions ticket for the draw in which you would like to play – Tuesday, Friday or both! You will receive a randomly-generated Millionaire Maker code, featuring four letters and five numbers, for every EuroMillions line you play. If you purchase a EuroMillions ticket for Tuesday’s draw, you will receive an entry to the Mega Week draw for that day; if you decide to play in Friday’s EuroMillions draw, you will be entered into Friday’s Mega Week draw. That’s two chances to win a fantastic prize!
The winning codes are selected at random, with each winner receiving a cash prize of £1 million as well as the opportunity to indulge in a luxury experience to help them get accustomed to the millionaire lifestyle! Every edition of Mega Week will offer a different lifestyle prize, such as an exotic getaway.

How to Win Mega Week
To win a Mega Week prize, players will need to match one of the winning codes drawn, so it’s important to remember to check the Millionaire Maker code on your ticket. The code must be matched entirely; there are no prizes for matching only part of the code. You will be able to check your codes by entering them into the Millionaire Maker Checker.
History of Mega Week
Mega Week replaced Mega Friday on Tuesday 27th September 2016 to coincide with a number of other changes to EuroMillions, but the event was first offered to UK players for Christmas 2015. Special draws were held on both Tuesday 22nd December and Friday 25th December, with five winners in each draw. Each of them won £1 million as well as the opportunity to travel to Sweden to stay at the Copperhill Mountain Lodge in Åre.
