Extra Ways to Win Lottery Prizes

Extra Ways to Win Lottery Prizes
Updated: Thursday 30th November 2017

When most people think about how to win lottery prizes, they tend to focus on the most obvious approach, which is by matching numbers in the main draw. These days, however, there are plenty of extra ways to win big cash sums that are also well worth exploring, so today we will highlight some of the most popular of these and explain how they work.

EuroMillions Millionaire Maker

Millionaire Maker is one which is only open to EuroMillions players who buy their tickets here in the UK. The cost of a single line of numbers for any main EuroMillions draw includes an automatically-generated raffle-style entry into the associated Millionaire Maker draw, and this gives players an extra chance to win a cash prize of £1 million. There are usually two guaranteed Millionaire Maker winners in each draw, but from time to time special celebratory events are held which guarantee many more.

Because the Millionaire Maker game guarantees that two or more UK players will win £1 million in every draw, it is possible to buy a EuroMillions ticket and end the night with a seven-figure prize even if you don’t match a single number in the main EuroMillions draw. The restriction of this game to UK participants also means you won’t have to worry about competing against players in other countries.

Lotto Millionaire Raffle

Millionaire Raffle works in a similar way to Millionaire Maker, but is supplementary to Lotto instead of EuroMillions. Every line of numbers purchased for a Lotto draw gives its owner an automatically-generated raffle number, and if that number matches the one drawn in the Millionaire Raffle game, you win a cool £1 million. If you don’t match the Millionaire Raffle number, you could still pick up a very useful prize, because 20 Lotto Raffle numbers are also drawn, and each of those is worth £20,000.

As with Millionaire Maker, the Lotto Millionaire Raffle and Lotto Raffle prizes are guaranteed, so they will always be won regardless of how players perform in the main Lotto draw. Another advantage of these prizes is that they can’t be shared, so if you match a winning raffle number, you are sure to win the amount that is associated with that number.

EuroMillions HotPicks

EuroMillions HotPicks is a new lottery game which will be launching in January 2018. This game will differ from the other two because it stands on its own as a separate game. Players will be able to choose anything from 1 to 5 numbers, and the more numbers they select and match (with the main EuroMillions results being used to determine the winners), the more they will win.

Play to Win!

As you can see, there are many more extra ways to win lottery prizes than most casual players ever realise, but you still need to get involved if you want to stand a chance of succeeding. Play to win this week and if you don’t land yourself a lottery jackpot in one of the main games you could still end up winning yourself a hefty sum! Enjoy whatever games you choose to participate in, and good luck!
