Lotto Millionaire Raffle was introduced in October 2015 at the same time that a number of changes were made to the main Lotto game, and guarantees that at least one ticket holder will win £1 million in every draw. Players are entered into the supplementary game at no extra charge as soon as they buy a Lotto ticket.
To win £1 million, players must have a ticket where the code matches one drawn for the Lotto Millionaire Raffle top prize. Each Lotto ticket will feature a randomly-generated code, consisting of a four-letter colour followed by an eight-digit number. The colours used are AQUA, BLUE, GOLD, GREY, JADE, LIME, NAVY, PINK, PLUM, ROSE, RUBY and TEAL.
In most Lotto draws, there will usually be just one Lotto Millionaire Raffle code worth £1 million, but on occasion more top prizes will be offered, either to mark a special event or just to generate interest in the game. On Saturday 10th October, 2015, there were 25 prizes of £1 million up for grabs to mark the launch of the new Lotto game. In addition to the £1 million prizes given away, there are a further 20 prizes on offer in every draw which are each worth £20,000.
The odds of winning on Lotto Millionaire Raffle depend solely on how many tickets are sold for that night’s Lotto draw. It is estimated that approximately 7.1 million tickets are sold for an average Wednesday base draw and 14.4 million entries are made on an average Saturday base draw, with more players expected to take part as jackpots increase in value. As all the codes have an equal chance of winning, regardless of the colour or number they display, the only way to increase your chances of winning the raffle prize is to buy more Lotto tickets.
If you buy Lotto tickets online, you’ll receive an email notification informing you of any Lotto Millionaire Raffle win, but if you purchase physical tickets, it is important to check the winning codes to see if you have won a seven-figure windfall. Prizes must be claimed within 180 days of the draw date; after this, any unclaimed funds are donated to good causes supported by the National Lottery.
