Christmas Millionaire Raffle

The Irish National Lottery celebrates the festive season by giving players the chance to win multiple prizes in the special Christmas Millionaire Raffle draw. This festive raffle game offers thousands of prizes every year, with a top reward of €1 million.

Tickets cost €25 each, with all entries containing a six-digit code generated at random. The Irish Lottery Christmas Millionaire Raffle takes place on 31st December each year and featured a total of 5,568 cash prizes in 2018.

The Christmas Millionaire Raffle traditionally follows the same format and take place in two stages. The first stage randomly selects tickets to decide the prize winners. The second stage draw then allocates a prize to each winning ticket.

The Christmas Millionaire Raffle is a separate draw to the main Irish Lotto game where, instead of players selecting their own numbers, all raffle tickets are pre-printed. Only 500,000 tickets are sold every year throughout Ireland, so players are always advised to purchase tickets well in advance to avoid missing out on the chance of becoming a raffle winner.

In addition to the Christmas Millionaire Raffle, the Irish Lottery holds other special raffle draws throughout the year and previous years have seen an Easter Millionaire Raffle and a Summer Millionaire Raffle.
