Mega Week is a EuroMillions promotion which gives ticket holders in the UK the opportunity to play for even more phenomenal prizes. Mega Week draws are held on both Tuesdays and Fridays and 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 for every EuroMillions line you play.
The winning codes are selected at random, with each winner receiving a cash prize of £1 million as well as that month's five-star experience.

How to Win Mega Week
To win a Mega Week prize, players will need to match the EuroMillions numbers drawn or one of the winning codes, 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 can 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, along with a host of other EuroMillions Changes.
Mega Friday had been launched in October 2014 and offered additional Millionaire Maker prizes and enhanced luxury experiences in the last Friday draw of the month. The first Mega Friday draw saw 25 players win £1 million and a VIP, two-week holiday to Makepeace Island in Australia. Later draws gave away luxury cars and round-the-world trips for a host of brand new millionaires.
Mega Week was first trialled at Christmas 2015 when, instead of the single Mega Friday draw, five players on Tuesday 22nd and five ticket holders on Friday 25th December claimed £1 million and a break at a mountain lodge in Sweden.
