Were you a winner?
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.
Absolutely! Lottery winners can keep their anonymity in the UK.
There is also a common myth or misconception that remaining anonymous affects the amount of money you win.
However, this is absolutely false and your decision about whether or not to go public has no bearing on your jackpot.
A mum realised she had won £300,000 on a National Lottery scratch card after initially believing her winnings were just £1,000.
Sandra Davine only discovered her huge winnings after a life-changing phone call to a lottery line operator in December last year.
Sandra declared that she thought she had won £1,000 – enquiring as to how it could be claimed.
But unbeknown to her, her day was about a get a lot better as the phone line operator confirmed that she had actually scooped a whopping £300,000.
A stunned Sandra, of Renfrewshire, Scotland, can be heard saying: “You must be joking. There’s no way.”
American man, Richard Lustig, is the only person in the world who has won the lottery seven times.
In an interview with ABC News, Lustig explained that his method wass to re-invest all of his winnings back into the lottery, and also recommended using hand-picked sequential numbers, as well as using the same numbers repeatedly.
Lustig’s total wins amount to a value of $1,052,205.58, which is about £766,736.95.
For many, winning the jackpot means mass celebrations and ultra-expensive cars – but not for Susan Hardman.
When the mum-of-one’s numbers came up in January 2010 she worked as a hairdresser in Eardisley, Hereford, and was “struggling financially”.
Instead of splashing out when the £1.2million win landed in her bank account, she traded in her scissors for overalls and became a pig farmer.
Susan claimed to be happier than ever knee-deep in mud and said bringing a piglet into the world brought her “more satisfaction” than winning the lottery.
A WOMAN who scooped £10,000 a month on the National Lottery Set For Life has quit her job to become a ghost hunter with her husband.
Part-time paranormal investigator Laura Hoyle, 39, has decided to ditch her day job to pursue her spooky passion with Kirk Stevens, 37, after their big win.
The 39-year-old is used to shocks – after realising she had landed the life-changing amount of money when she initially thought she had only won a fiver.
Laura was able to immediately jack in her job at a logistics firm, after realising the cash could allow her to concentrate on her ghost-hunting hobby full-time.

A NATIONAL Lottery winning dinner lady still lives in her council house, shops in Primark and drives a Kia despite bagging £1.8million.
Trish Emson, 51, explained money or her millionaire status did not change her or her partner Graham Norton, also 51, who still works as a decorator.
The down-to-earth pair have even managed to keep their teenage son Benjamin, 17, in check – and don’t even give him pocket money.
The modest mum, from Rotherham, South Yorkshire, said: “Being rich doesn’t make you posh or a better person.
“I don’t like showing off and bragging about money and I can’t be posh anyway.
“To look at me you wouldn’t think I was a millionaire, but if I have to dress up I feel fake, I prefer my jeans,” she told The Mirror.

If no UK players come forward within 180 days then the prize money, plus all the interest it has generated while it is held in trust, goes to National Lottery-funded projects across the UK.
The National Lottery have said: “Our players change the lives of individuals as well as communities by raising, on average, over £33 million for National Lottery-funded projects every week.”
Think you’ve got the right numbers to win the EuroMillions? Here are the most popular numbers.
For Euromillions, the most popular number is 50.
Followed by: 44, 19, 4 and 30.
The most common extra numbers have been 8 and 3.
Around £30 million is raised every week by National Lottery players for good causes – so even if you don’t win some of the country’s most vulnerable do.
Here are some of the organisations they work with:
Among those lucky enough to bank a small fortune on a scratchcard is Sean Irwin, who bought a £3 Ruby Doubler while popping to the shops earlier this year.
The plumber screamed for joy after discovering he had scooped £300,000 after matching two number 22s.
A furloughed barman and his NHS wife also nabbed a big win on a National Lottery Win All scratchcard.
Jonny Wright, 40, said his “legs went to jelly” after realising they had bagged a £100,000 golden payout.
And mum Sandra Davine got the shock of her life when she realised she hand won £300,000 after initially believing her winnings were just £1,000.
Stunned Sandra said at the time: “You must be joking. There’s no way.”
A £115million jackpot is probably enough to not just change your life, but the lives of everyone you’ve ever cared about too.
Which is probably why Frances and Patrick Connolly decided to give over half of their winnings to 175 people.
“We won £114,969,775.70 and we have given away more than half,” Frances said last year.
“That’s £60million-worth of love. And the thing that makes me even happier is that every single person we gave money to has passed some of it on to other people. I can’t think of a day since winning the Lottery that I haven’t smiled.”
Gaming is fun but for a few, but it may become a problem.

Roofer Jamie Heavens, then-22-year-old, went to work at his dad Mark’s roofing company in Dorset, near where he lives, and started his hands-on job.
After being sent off to work on another site, he stopped off at Romsey Services off the M27 for fuel and also bought a scratchard.
“I scratched it off in a layby and was stunned when it revealed I’d won £1m,” he said.
He kept it quiet from his colleagues – telling only his uncle and wife-to-be. 
However, despite winning big, Jamie said: “Danielle still buys me jogging bottoms from Primark. I go out and graft everyday so she knows I will get them filthy. There’s no point in her getting me really smart ones, they would just get wrecked.”
Wife Danielle is still working as a receptionist at a garage whereas Jamie set up his own company, a roadside recovery service.
