As well as the Christmas Millionaire Raffle, where 25 instant millionaires are created, EuroMillions also offers a Millionaire Raffle along with its draws on Tuesday and Friday. This gives keen lotto players an extra chance to win life-changing amounts of money through big lottery jackpot wins.
Along with EuroMillions draws there is also a shot at bagging the Millionaire Raffle £1m prize: EuroMillions’ ticket purchasers are automatically entered into the raffle with a unique code displayed on their ticket.
One such lottery player who did just that was retired salesman Leslie Campbell from Dunblane in Stirlingshire, Scotland. He won the Millionaire Raffle in the December 11th EuroMillions’ draw in 2012 by matching the winning code: ZVX850594.
According to the Daily Record, Mr. Campbell plans to use his EuroMillions lottery winnings to travel to Buenos Aires in Argentina, South America and spoil his son and daughter.
He said of his win: “I never expect to win anything – if I get one number I think I’m doing well. I thought I better check just in case. When I saw I had the winning combination I got straight on the phone to the National Lottery to make sure.”
And of his plans to travel: “I’ve always enjoyed travelling. My son lives overseas and has been kind enough to bring me over to visit him, so I hope to repay his kindness. I’ve long had a notion for going to Buenos Aires but a pension doesn’t leave much for extravagances, so that’s a definite on my to-do list. Both of my children will be beneficiaries of the win too – it will be a great Christmas for us.”
