Millionaire Maker is a supplementary game into which anyone who buys a EuroMillions ticket in the UK is automatically entered. The game guarantees to make at least two millionaires in every draw, with more prizes being given away in the final two draws of every month as well as on other special occasions.
The draw was known as the Millionaire Raffle until October 2014. The name was changed to Millionaire Maker with the introduction of Mega Friday, an event offering multiple prizes of £1 million and a luxury experience. In September 2016, the number of prizes provided in every draw rose from one to two and Mega Friday was extended into Mega Week.
Millionaire Maker Results
Winning Millionaire Maker codes are selected on EuroMillions draw nights from all of those entered. The results appear on the Lottery Results page alongside those from the main EuroMillions game, soon after the draws take place. You can find the latest Millionaire Maker results on our results page.
How to Play Millionaire Maker
For every line of EuroMillions numbers that you purchase, a random Millionaire Maker number is generated automatically on your behalf. Each Millionaire Maker number consists of four letters and five numbers and you win a prize by matching one of the codes drawn. The results of the main EuroMillions draw have no bearing whatsoever on Millionaire Maker, so it is possible to win in both games on the same night.

How Millionaire Maker Works
Millionaire Maker works just like a traditional raffle, with every ticket bought having an equal chance of being a winner. A unique code is generated for each entry and the numbers go up incrementally. For example, if one ticket has a code of HHHH00001, the next ticket bought will be HHHH00002.
Every code generated for an upcoming draw is entered into an Automated Draw Machine (ADM) which selects the winning codes at random.
Millionaire Maker codes begin with H, J, M, T, V, X or Z and tickets bought in the run up to a draw all bear the same letter, which changes after every draw. However, the system recognises tickets that have been bought for multiple draws and such codes are included in all of the games covered by the ticket, even though the initial letter is different from the one on tickets bought specifically for that draw. It is for this reason that a list of previous Millionaire Maker winning codes may not run in sequential order.
Your odds of winning Millionaire Maker are entirely dependent on how many other ticket holders there are in a specific draw, but the following table can serve as a guide.
Odds of Winning Millionaire Maker
|Draw Date/Type||Odds of Winning|
|Tuesday - EuroMillions Base Draw||1 in 1.9 million|
|Friday - EuroMillions Base Draw||1 in 2.95 million|
*Odds are based on expected sales of UK Millionaire Maker entries and vary depending on the number of EuroMillions tickets bought for a draw.
Millionaire Maker - Key Facts
The first ever draw, under the old name of Millionaire Raffle, took place on Friday 13th November 2009. Millionaire Maker is exclusively played by EuroMillions ticket holders in the UK and is included in the price of the regular EuroMillions ticket, giving two opportunities to win a huge prize. Neither game can be played separately from the other.
Mega Week (formerly Mega Friday) is the name given to a special draw in which Millionaire Maker offers luxury non-cash prizes in addition to the usual two prizes of £1 million. The first Mega Friday draw took place on Friday 31st October 2014, with 25 holidays to Makepeace Island on Australia’s Sunshine Coast given away. You can find details of all the non-cash prizes won in these draws on our Mega Friday page. For a details on the event as it is currently operated, meanwhile, check out our Mega Week page.
