A HISTORY OF THE EUROMILLIONS LOTTERY AT CHRISTMAS

One of the happiest times of year, imagine how you could make your Christmas even more exciting than it already is, by playing in one of the EuroMillions’ lotteries Christmas draws.

The EuroMillions lottery has always been one for celebrating special occasions, and the last few years the lottery has made Christmas an extra special time for lottery players. In 2010, the lottery game began by increasing the number of Millionaire Raffle players who won £1 million in the Christmas Eve draw; this meant that 25 players across the UK woke up on Christmas morning not only to find out that Santa had been, but also to discover that the lottery fairies had made them a millionaire!

This continued in 2011, when the EuroMillions lottery introduced its very first Millionaire’s Month. This special promotion began in November, and guaranteed 50 Millionaire Raffle prizes over the course of four weeks and eighth EuroMillions draws. The first draw on Friday 25th November made 18 players millionaires and the finale on December 23rd made 25 millionaires, however of the 50 raffle prizes that were won in total only 46 of those were ever claimed.

The EuroMillions draw in 2012 was the first time that the lottery was ever drawn on Christmas Day, and it was also drawn a week later on New Year’s day. To celebrate the special draws, 25 players were made millionaires on each of the draws in the Millionaire Raffle game.

In 2013, the EuroMillions lottery was drawn on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve, and the lottery this year decided to celebrate the festive season by giving out special prizes in the New Year’s draw. 25 players entered into their New Year as a new person; a millionaire, thanks to the lottery game.

Christmas 2014 will see the EuroMillions lottery draw take place on Boxing Day, and thanks to the recent introduction of a EuroMillions Mega Friday, a special event that takes place on the last Friday of every month, ten players will be treated to an extra special late Christmas gift. Those ten players who match the numbers in the Millionaire Raffle game will not only win £1 million, but they will also win a VIP trip to Canada where they will see the Northern Lights and stay in the five star hotel in the Rocky Mountains.
