How It Works
Millionaire Maker works just like a traditional raffle, with every ticket bought having an equal chance of being a winner. For every line of EuroMillions numbers that you purchase, a random Millionaire Maker number is generated automatically, this will be clearly labelled on your ticket. As every code needs to be unique, you are not able to select your own.
Each code consists of four letters followed by five numbers and will always begin with H, J, M, T, V, X or Z. The starting letter has no impact on your likelihood of winning.
- Did youknow?
If there is also a European Millionaire Maker scheduled for any draw that you enter, then the same code will be used for both that and UK version.
Your Millionaire Maker number is only valid for draws on the dates covered by your ticket - so if you buy an advanced ticket valid for multiple draws, then the same code will be entered for each.
All entries are inputted into an Automated Draw Machine (ADM), which selects the winning codes at random. To obtain a prize, the number on your ticket must match a winning code exactly. There are no prizes for a partial match, if you are unsure then you can use the Ticket Checker to confirm whether you are a winner.
As every code has an equal chance of being selected, sometimes both will begin with similar letters whilst on other occasions they will look completely different. This is due to the random nature of the draw.
Odds of Winning
Unlike in the main EuroMillions draw where the odds for each prize tier are fixed, Millionaire Maker odds vary based on ticket sales. So, when fewer people play your odds of winning improve as there are fewer codes to choose from. Some approximate odds are provided here:
|Draw Type||Odds of Winning*|
|Tuesday - Base Draw (€17M jackpot)||1 in 1.9 million|
|Friday - Base Draw (€17M jackpot)||1 in 2.95 million|
|Tuesday - 4x Rollover||1 in 2.25 million|
|Friday - 4x Rollover||1 in 3.4 million|
*Odds are estimated based on typical ticket sales for each type of draw.
People typically prefer to play on a Friday, so this means you can often take advantage of better odds of winning by getting a ticket for Tuesday draws. Also, as the jackpot increases so do ticket sales, so the draw after a big win is another good time to try your luck in Millionaire Maker!
The best odds occur in special draws where extra codes are drawn, as this means more guaranteed prizes. So keep an eye on the News section so you are the first to hear about any upcoming events.
History & Facts
The first ever draw, under the old name of Millionaire Raffle, took place on Friday 13th November 2009. Millionaire Maker is played exclusively in the UK and as it is included in the price of the regular EuroMillions ticket, neither game can be played separately from the other.
Originally, only one code was drawn in each game. This was increased to two in September 2016 to up the number of big prize winners and create more excitement.
100 Millionaires Draws
Occasionally, ticket holders are given the opportunity to win one of 100 prizes of £1 million. First held on the day of the Olympic opening ceremony in 2012, this special Euromillions draw set the world record for the most millionaire winners created in a single lottery draw. On Friday 26th July 2013, the 100 Millionaires Raffle returned for a second time.
