Millionaire Maker is a supplementary game played by all UK EuroMillions ticketholders. The game guarantees to make at least two millionaires in every draw, with more prizes being given away in the final full week of every month as well as on other special occasions.
The draw was known as the Millionaire Raffle until October 2014, when it became Millionaire Maker. This coincided 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 regular draw rose from one to two and Mega Friday was extended into Mega Week.
Millionaire Maker Results
Following the conclusion of each EuroMillions draw, winning Millionaire Maker codes are randomly selected from all of those entered. The results can be found on the Lottery Results page or on the Millionaire Maker 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 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.

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 played exclusively 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 special Millionaire Maker draws that offer luxury non-cash prizes in addition to the usual two awards 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 experiences won in these draws on the Mega Week page.
100 Millionaires Draws
On Friday 26th July 2013, the EuroMillions 100 Millionaires Raffle returned for a second time. First held on the day of the Olympic opening ceremony in 2012, this special Euromillions draw set the world record for the most amount of millionaire winners created in a single lottery draw.
