EuroMillions Draw on 12th January Will Have 10 UK Millionaires

EuroMillions Draw on 12th January Will Have 10 UK Millionaires
Updated: Monday 8th January 2024

There are guaranteed to be 10 new UK millionaires by the time the EuroMillions draw on Friday 12th January has finished, with extra prizes set to be given away in the Millionaire Maker raffle.

The Millionaire Maker takes place alongside every EuroMillions draw. You don’t have to pay any more to play - you are automatically included and the cost of entry is incorporated in the £2.50 price of a ticket.

You get one raffle code - four letters and five numbers - for every line you play. The codes are printed on the lower portion of your ticket below your numbers for the main draw.

In a regular draw, there is a single winning code. This guarantees that someone in the UK always wins £1 million, even if nobody takes home the jackpot.

From time to time, the National Lottery also organises special events when multiple millionaires are created. On Friday 12th January, 10 winning codes will be selected instead of one. This gives you a far better chance of winning than normal.

The last time that 10 millionaires were made was a couple of months ago on 3rd November 2023. Two of those prizes are still currently unclaimed, highlighting how important it is to check tickets and then come forward within the 180-day claim period.

If you’re lucky enough to win a major prize, you can decide whether to stay anonymous or go public. There is also a third option for online winners - partial publicity - where a few details are disclosed but your identity remains a secret.

That is what one woman - known only as Mrs B from Essex - did when she won £1 million in November’s special Millionaire Maker draw. It was revealed that she had picked her own numbers and was looking to use the money to buy a new home.

As well as the big Millionaire Maker draw on Friday, the EuroMillions jackpot has already climbed past £50 million. Even if it’s won in the next couple of weeks, it will be increased to €130 million (approximately £110 million) for a Superdraw on 26th January.

Make sure to buy a ticket for any draw that you don’t want to miss, then catch up with the EuroMillions Results afterwards to see if you are a winner.
