Lotto Millionaire Raffle
Lotto Millionaire Raffle is a supplementary game to Lotto and guarantees one £1 million prize and 20 prizes of £20,000 in every draw - with extra prizes awarded during special draws. Entry into the raffle is included in the price of a Lotto ticket with a randomly-generated code produced for each line of numbers played in the main game. It gives you another chance to become a millionaire, no matter how many how many of the main Lotto numbers you match!
Use the 'Winning Raffle Codes' button to find out if you have won in the most recent draw:

How it Works
Every raffle number needs to be unique, this is why they are automatically generated at random and you cannot select your own. This game format also means that every code has a completely equal chance of winning a prize, just like in a traditional tombola raffle.
Each code consists of a four-digit colour (such as "GOLD" or "GREY") followed by an eight-digit number, such as "1234 5678". 12 different colours are used in the raffle:
The starting colour does not affect your chances of winning, but not every colour appears in every draw. So if your code began with 'NAVY' but none of winning codes did this does not mean that 'NAVY' codes were not included, just that none were selected on that occasion. View the Colour Statistics to find out how frequently each one is drawn.
To win £1 million, the code on your ticket must match one drawn for the Tier 1 Millionaire Raffle prize. A further 20 codes are then drawn to find winners of the £20,000 prizes.
Odds of Winning
As the raffle prizes are guaranteed, the only thing that affects your chances of winning is how many tickets are sold - when fewer other people play your odds improve as there are fewer available codes to choose the winners from. The table below gives an example of how the odds can change:
|Draw Day||Odds of Winning|
|Wednesday Lotto||1 in 338,000 (based on 7.1 million tickets being sold)|
|Saturday Lotto||1 in 686,000 (based on 14.4 million tickets being sold)|
Typically, more lottery tickets are sold for weekend draws. So playing on a Wednesday can be a great way to boost your odds!
