100 UK Millionaires draw on Friday July 27th 2012

This Friday 27th July 2012 is a special date. Not only does it mark the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games, but it also sees an exciting event for lottery players; The 100 UK Millionaire Raffle. This is a record-breaking raffle draw being held to coincide with the start of the Olympics, which will make an instant 100 ticket holders millionaires. All you have to do is buy your Euromillions ticket as normal and you will be entered automatically.

The draw is being held alongside the opening ceremony of the Olympics to act as a special thank you to lottery players who, by the income generated from their ticket sales, have helped raise some of the revenue which has enabled the UK to host the Games. And what better way to say thank you than by creating a record number of millionaires?

How is it different to the regular Millionaires Raffle?

This raffle is a one off in many ways. It is setting off to break its own previous world record of creating the most millionaires in one night. The last time the record was set was by the Millionaires Month, when 25 one million pound prizes were given out to 25 ticket holders in one night. Now, the UK 100 Millionaire Raffle sets out to smash that record, and make a whopping 100 ticket holders millionaires.

What are the prizes?

The prizes will be one hundred cheques of £1 million, which will be given out to 100 separate ticket holders. This is different to the regular Millionaire Raffle, which usually gives out one prize of £1 million alongside each Euromillions draw on a Tuesday and Friday night.

How do I take part?

Simply buy your Euromillions ticket as normal and when you purchase your ticket, a raffle code will be automatically generated. This code will be entered into the UK 100 Millionaire Raffle, and if it is one of the 100 picked at random, you will win £1 million!

Winning the 100 UK Millionaire Raffle is separate to the Euromillions, so you will still need to check your Euromillions numbers to see if you have been successful in matching any of those numbers generated in the draw.

You can buy Euromillions tickets either from a store with a lottery kiosk, or online from the comfort of your desk. Buying online can be more convenient, and a scanned version of your lottery ticket will be emailed to you, so you never need worry about misplacing your numbers again.
