EuroMillions Player Guaranteed to Become Millionaire on Friday 1st June

EuroMillions Player Guaranteed to Become Millionaire on Friday 1st June

EuroMillions players in Ireland can look forward to a special event on Friday 1st June which will provide an extra opportunity to become a millionaire. The Ireland Only Raffle is promising to give an additional €1 million to one of the lucky winners, making it the perfect start to the holiday weekend.

Ireland Only Raffle to Make Dreams Come True

The Ireland Only Raffle takes place every Tuesday and Friday alongside EuroMillions draws. You are automatically entered when you buy a EuroMillions ticket, and for every line you purchase you will receive a unique raffle number.

When the raffle is held, ten numbers are selected at random and the participants with matching tickets are the winners. The prizes are guaranteed, as the only numbers entered into the draw are the ones which have been generated on players’ tickets.

In a normal draw, each winner receives €5,000. On Friday 1st June, though, one of the lucky ten winners will be randomly chosen to receive an extra €1 million, taking their total prize up to €1,005,000.

Special Ireland Only Raffle draws have the power to help wishes come true. A Dublin man was revealed to be the big winner in the last raffle of this kind on Friday 16th March. He had always wanted to live in the Caribbean, but his pension had not stretched that far. He said: “The €1 million win means that I can escape Irish winters here and live the dream!”

Cork Player Misses Out

It is essential for EuroMillions players to check their tickets after every draw if they play through a retailer, otherwise they might suffer the same fate as a player from Cork who has this week missed out on a prize worth €1 million.

They had bought a ticket at the Eason Store in the Wilton Shopping Centre in Cork City ahead of the game on Friday 23rd February, and matched one of the numbers in the EuroMillionaire’s Raffle Draw.

All Irish National Lottery prizes must be claimed within 90 days, though, and the deadline for the Cork winner to get in touch was 5.30pm on Thursday 24th May. Officials had made a series of last-ditch pleas to try and jog memories, but to no avail.

Huge EuroMillions Jackpot

The special draw on 1st June provides another chance for players to become millionaires, but you do not even have to wait for the start of the new month to try and get your hands on a gigantic cash sum.

The EuroMillions jackpot has rolled over four times in a row since an Austrian ticket holder won €45 million on Tuesday 8th May, and is now up to an impressive €60 million ahead of Friday night.

You can pick up tickets from any authorised retailer or play online if you want to make sure you don’t miss out on a prize like the unfortunate winner from Cork. If you take part online, your numbers will be stored safely, you will be notified straight away if you win and prizes will be paid straight into your account. It could just be that you bank a fantastic sum this weekend!
