Ireland Only Raffle
The Ireland Only Raffle provides an extra opportunity for EuroMillions players from Ireland to win a magnificent prize. Ten ticket holders are guaranteed to win €5,000 in every draw, creating more than 1,000 additional winners a year.
How the Ireland Only Raffle Works
To play the Ireland Only Raffle, you simply need to buy a EuroMillions ticket in Ireland. For every line you purchase, you will have a special code printed on your ticket that gives you entry into the supplementary game at no extra cost. However, you cannot play the Ireland Only Raffle separately from EuroMillions. It is possible, though, to win an Ireland Only Raffle prize without winning anything on EuroMillions, and vice versa.
When the EuroMillionaire’s Raffle also takes place, the same code will be entered into both draws, so you only need to check one raffle number.
How to Win the Ireland Only Raffle
Ten codes are randomly selected on the same night as every EuroMillions draw, guaranteeing that ten different tickets will win €5,000 as each code is unique.Winning players will then have up to 90 days after the draw to claim a prize.
The first special Ireland Only Raffle draw took place on Friday 17th February 2017, when one of the ten winners was randomly selected to also receive €1 million. The next guaranteed €1 million Ireland Only Raffle draw will take place on Friday 5th May 2017.
History of the Ireland Only Raffle
The Ireland Only Raffle was launched ahead of the draw on Tuesday 27th September to coincide with a number of exciting changes to EuroMillions. Minimum jackpots were increased from €15 million to €17 million at the same time, with the number of Lucky Stars going from 11 to 12 and a new pan-European raffle.
