European Millionaire Maker
Some European countries provide extra options to win money, and the United Kingdom is a good example of that. Thanks to the British organization ‘Camelot’ you can win money in the European Millionaire Maker. The guaranteed prizes of 1 million euros attract a lot of players. Obviously it’s not very easy to become a millionaire. You need to have a lot of luck, because all the letters and the numbers need to watch with those that appear during the draw for the European Millionaire Maker. The UK Millionaire Maker Draw always has two guaranteed winners. Perhaps you’ll be one of them in the near future!
1 million pounds, and nothing less
Sometimes there are so many prizes won that the Millionaire Maker winner doesn’t receive the exact amount of 1 million pounds, but less. In that case the Camelot organization pays an additional amount so that eventually 1 million pounds will be added to the bank account of the lucky winner. These circumstances could lead to a temporary stop of the EuroMillions and European Millionaire maker draws. The draw continues when the problem is resolved.
Smaller prizes in the UK
You’ve probably seen that less correct numbers mean smaller prizes. For example, if you have only 3 main numbers you win 9 pounds, whereas a prize of 7,60 pounds is given to you with 1 main number and two Lucky Stars. 6 pounds and 3,30 pounds are won when you have 2 main numbers and 1 Lucky Star of 2 main numbers, respectively.
Other great prizes besides money
Perhaps you win no cash, but other great prizes. These prizes are usually won in special UK Millionaire Maker draws. It often organizes ‘Mega Fridays’ and ‘Mega Tuesdays’. In these super raffles you can win a stay in a luxurious hotel, for example. The 5 star accommodations definitely breathe a millionaire vibe! The details of the prizes are usually advertised before the draw. You can also read about special draws in the so-called ‘Game Specific Rules’ on the website of the National Lottery.
Winning chances England Euromillions
Perhaps you’re thinking about entering the EuroMillions lottery. It is important to know the odds of winning during the draws. The following scheme might help you:
What kind of draw Which day Odds of winning
EuroMillions base draw Tuesday 1:1,900,000
EuroMillions base draw Friday 1:2,950,000
EuroMillions 4th Rollover Tuesday 1:2,250,000
EuroMillions 4th Rollover Friday 1:3,400,000
The expected ticket sales play an important part in the calculation of the exact odds of winning. For example, the winning chances during the EuroMillionss base draw are based on the expected sales of 3,8 million UK Millionaire Matchmaker tickets. At the base draw during Friday, the expected sales are 5,9 million, whereas at the 4th Rollovers on Tuesday and Friday respectively 4,5 million and 6,8 million UK Millionaire Matchmaker tickets are expected to be sold.
Factors that determine the prize money
No one knows what the exact prize money is going to be before the draw. This depends on the number of tickets that have been sold and how many tickets have matching numbers. Some European countries use a different currency. This is important to know as well. Because of this the exchange rate and the exact prize money is different every week. Usually 2,20 euros is about 1,65 pounds. The number of winners is another factor to determine the exact amount of prize money. Sometimes there are more winners than expect in a certain prize category. As a result, the winning money could be lower than in a lower prize category. Besides that, there’s not always a Jackpot hit (we wish). Without a winner, a part of the Jackpot money rolls down to the winners in the next prize category.
