Mega Week is a EuroMillions promotion which gives ticket holders in the UK the opportunity to play for even more phenomenal prizes. Draws are held throughout the year on both Tuesdays and Fridays and produce multiple winners of £1 million and a luxurious lifestyle prize.
How it Works
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 unique nine digit Millionaire Maker code for every line you play.
On the evening of the draw, winning codes are selected at random from all entries. If the code on your ticket exactly matches one of the winners then you will receive £1 million as well as the exciting non-cash prize. Please note, there are no prizes for matching only part of the code. You can find out if you are a winner by using the Checker.

Since 2014, EuroMillions has been awarding extra special prizes, as well as cash. This promotion was originally called Mega Friday, which as the name suggests took place in the final Friday draw of each month. The first giveaway took place on Friday October 31st and offered 25 prizes of £1 million plus a luxury holiday to the Richard Branson-owned Makepeace Island on Australia’s Sunshine Coast.
The concept of a Mega Week, rather than a single draw, was first trialed at Christmas 2015 when five ticket holders on both Tuesday 22nd and Friday 25th December claimed £1 million and a break at a mountain lodge in Sweden.
Mega Week then replaced Mega Friday permanently on Tuesday 27th September 2016, along with a host of other EuroMillions Changes.
