New Year’s EuroMillions Draws
There are few better ways to celebrate a New Year than with some extra millions in your bank account, as numerous winners of New YearвЂ™s EuroMillions draws can attest to.
Each New Year has its own special EuroMillions draw, from big Millionaire Maker raffles to bumper jackpots. Here, you can find the latest news on New YearвЂ™s EuroMillions draws and events, as well as information on those of previous years, dating back to 2013.
2019 was a record-breaking year for EuroMillions, as the biggest ever jackpot was given away and jackpot winners took more prize money than in any other year. The special year was finished with a UK Millionaire Maker raffle on New Year’s Eve, in which 10 UK players won guaranteed prizes of ВЈ1 million, providing a fitting end to a successful 2019. The EuroMillions jackpot continued to roll over through the Christmas and New Year period, giving players a ВЈ52 million jackpot to look forward to at the start of 2020.
New YearвЂ™s Day in 2019 happened to land on a Tuesday, coinciding with the mid-week EuroMillions draw and resulting in a special event for the occasion. Ten UK Millionaire Maker codes were drawn on the night of the 1st January 2019, guaranteeing ten UK players a New YearвЂ™s gift of ВЈ1 million each.
The draw was made even more special for the winning of the EuroMillions jackpot. It had crept up to ВЈ114 million – having started at the minimum jackpot of ВЈ15 million (в‚¬17 million) the previous November вЂ“ before being won by Belfast couple Patrick and Frances Connolly. Their EuroMillions win was the UKвЂ™s fourth-largest ever, and for them a welcome start to 2019.
Though no special New YearвЂ™s Day events took place on the first evening of 2018, the last days of 2017 saw ten lucky UK players meeting the New Year a little heavier in pocket. A special UK Millionaire Maker draw was held on 29th December, guaranteeing ten ВЈ1 million prizes instead of the two usually guaranteed at the time.
The 29th December EuroMillions draw also provided big rewards for Irish family, whose syndicate won them the entirety of the в‚¬38.9 million jackpot on offer that night.
The start of 2017 was a quiet one in terms of EuroMillions events. All the festivities had already occurred over the Christmas period, as a special edition of the then-popular Mega Week took place. The Tuesday and Friday draws just before Christmas offered players ten chances to win a guaranteed ВЈ1 million, plus a five-star skiing experience in Switzerland. See the Christmas EuroMillions draws page to find out more about those special events.
2016вЂ™s New Year period was also quiet, though ten UK EuroMillions players started it the right way. A pre-Christmas Mega Week blow-out in 2015 saw two consecutive EuroMillions draws each offer five ВЈ1 million prizes, bundled with an all-inclusive holiday to a Swedish mountain chalet.
Though no EuroMillions draws fell on New YearвЂ™s Day in 2015, a Mega Friday EuroMillions draw just before on Boxing Day saw ten Millionaire Maker codes drawn instead of one вЂ“ each ВЈ1 million prize accompanied by the prize of a VIP trip to Canada.
New YearвЂ™s Eve 2013 was celebrated in true EuroMillions style, with a special UK Millionaire Maker raffle offering 25 guaranteed ВЈ1 million prizes. In the weeks following the draw, all but one winner came forward to collect their prize!
Though no one won the jackpot on New YearвЂ™s Eve, it was scooped just seven days into 2014, after rolling over to reach an incredible ВЈ108 million. Two tickets, purchased in France and Spain respectively, each received в‚¬65 million (ВЈ54 million).
EuroMillionsвЂ™ first Tuesday draw landed on New YearвЂ™s Day in 2013, with suitable celebrations in tow. Twenty-five millionaires were guaranteed in a bumper Millionaire Maker draw, only one week after a special Christmas Day draw that also offered 25 ВЈ1 million prizes!
New YearвЂ™s Day was made extra-special by the winning of the EuroMillions jackpot. A sum of в‚¬38 million (ВЈ30.6 million) was shared between three tickets вЂ“ one purchased in the UK and two purchased in France.Find out about EuroMillions draws that take place around New Year, usually offering an increased number of Millionaire Maker prizes. ]]>
