Raffles get short shrift when it comes to lotteries. EuroMillions’ Raffles are an afterthought, overlooked and underappreciated. This has got to change! Sure, raffles don’t offer the same huge jackpots as the EuroMillions lottery itself, but would you turn down €1 million or £1 million? Of course not! It is not just the incredible prizes that raffles offer that make them worthy of attention and some appreciation, but also the fact that every raffle is guaranteed to be won. And, raffles are another opportunity to be a big EuroMillions winner with the same entry, a bonus if you will, when you play EuroMillions online!
EuroMillions Raffle Rundown
EuroMillions raffles are held in conjunction with EuroMillions draws, they are not standalone games. For each line played in an entry, a raffle number is assigned at random. Play five lines in the EuroMillions draw and you will also receive five raffle numbers. EuroMillions raffles, like all raffles, are guaranteed to be won. This is because the numbers drawn in the raffle are those that are in circulation, whereas a regular lottery draw includes every possible combination of the lottery’s guess range or ranges.
EuroMillions France – My Million

Francais de Jeux, the company with a state granted monopoly in France to operate lotteries, added the My Million raffle in February 2014. With the addition of the raffle, the price of a single line rose from €2.00 to €2.50.
EuroMillions Spain – El Millon

Play EuroMillions Spain and you will also participate in the El Millon raffle for a chance to win €1 million. El Millon raffles take place once a week, on Friday. All entries in the Tuesday and Friday draws of the same week also participate in the El Millon draw.
