In Search of 13 EuroMillions UK Millionaire Raffle Millionaires – May 20, 2012
“Five EuroMillions winners on May 18th” does not have the same ring as “18 EuroMillions winners on May 18th”. While no lottery tickets matched 29, 50, 43, 47, 13, and Lucky Star numbers 9 and 11 to take home the €64 million jackpot in Friday night’s draw, EuroMillions UK Millionaire Super Raffle distributed 18 £1 million prizes in the special draw. UK Millionaire Super Draws are fan favourites because they do not just create one £1 million winner, rather up to 18 or even 25 winners in a single UK Millionaire Super Raffle draw. The Super Draws are not scheduled for the same time each year so watch out, they could show up at any time!
On May 18th 18 EuroMillions UK ticketholders became instant millionaires—but only 5 came forward to claim their prizes! Now, England is on the hunt for its 13 missing millionaires!
All EuroMillions UK tickets are printed with a unique alpha-numerical code, which is automatically entered into the Millionaire Raffle. Usually only one Millionaire raffle code is drawn after the multi-national EuroMillions drawing. However, 18 numbers were drawn on Friday night’s super draw and the champagne on ice is beginning to melt as lottery officials wait for the remaining 13 winners to come forward.
One spokesman from the UK National Lottery urges players to take a second look at their lottery tickets, encouraging customers to “Check your tickets carefully as a giant cheque with your name on it could be waiting.” Friday night’s EuroMillions Super Raffle was the first special raffle event of 2012. With EuroMillions churning out jackpot winners at a rapid pace, there has hardly been a chance to hold EuroMillions Super Draws or Super Raffles for EuroMillions UK. The last EuroMillions Super Draw, with a starting jackpot of €100 million was held on October 4, 2011. Since 2007, EuroMillions has held two Super Draws a year, one in the Spring and one in the Fall. With 2012 nearing its halfway mark, EuroMillions fans can start anticipating a €100 million jackpot draw sometime soon!
While the 13 remaining newly-minted EuroMillions raffle millionaires have 180 days to come forward and collect their prizes, the world is waiting with bated breath for the lucky winners’ reveals. There are 13 millionaires walking around the UK, completely clueless to the fact that they have struck gold!
