How the Ireland Only Raffle Is Creating Five August Millionaires
The Ireland Only Raffle is set to give away an extra €5 million in prizes between Tuesday 10th August and Friday 20th August. Find out more about how the special promotion works.
What is the Ireland Only Raffle?
Every time you purchase a EuroMillions ticket in Ireland, you are automatically entered into the additional raffle draw. You don’t need to do anything extra to take part.
You will see a unique raffle code on your ticket for each line of numbers you have entered into the main draw. The code starts with an ‘I’ and is followed by three more letters and then five numbers. As the name suggests, the Ireland Only Raffle is a game played exclusively in Ireland.
Ten codes are randomly selected as winners. The aim of the game is to match your code to one of these winning codes exactly. If you achieve this you win a fixed prize of €5,000.
Special August Draws
If you match one of the winning codes in any of the EuroMillions draws on Tuesday 10th August, Friday 13th August, Tuesday 17th August or Friday 20th August, you also have a chance to become a millionaire.
The 10 Ireland Only Raffle winners in each draw will be entered into a separate draw. One of them will then be randomly selected to receive an extra €1 million. In the final draw of the series, on Friday 20th August, two players will be given €1 million. The final payout for all these winners will be €1,005,000.
The additional €5 million in prize money is guaranteed to be paid out, as only codes that have been generated on EuroMillions tickets will be entered into each raffle. You also have the chance to win prizes on the main game on the same night as the Ireland Only Raffle.
Whether you win an Ireland Only Raffle prize or a prize in the main EuroMillions game, you have 90 days from the date of the draw to come forward and claim your money.
