Explained: Millionaire maker
The Euromillions millionaire maker is like a backup if you are not successful with matching the numbers. Instead if your ticket has the matching code to the draw you’ll win.
According to the EuroMillions website, there is a 1 in 1,900,000 chance that a player could win the Millionaire Maker game on a Tuesday.
This shrinks to 1 in approximately 2,250,000 if there is a rollover – meaning no one has won the previous draw’s jackpot.
On a Friday, it’s estimated that there is a 1 in 2,950,000 chance of winning a guaranteed £1million.
If there is a quadruple rollover, the odds could fall to 1 in 3,400,000.
Winning the game depends on the number of payslips sold so the odds fluctuate from game-to-game.
The odds can also change if there is a special event.
In March 2019, EuroMillions created 40 UK millionaires in a one-off special draw.
