    Hi,

    Just wondering if anyone knows if the National Lottery are running the New Year's Eve Millionaire Raffle this year.

    These €20 tickets are always a handy Christmas present idea for a few people I know but I haven't heard anything about it yet.

    Are they for sale or am I being a little premature?

    Yeah they are doing it again this year.

    I have won twice on it over the past 2 years

    Hope I win something this year. Could do with it.

    Anyone know how close it is to being sold out? I got mine a week ago and it was around 90,000.

    Got mine Sunday morning 23rd number is 171xxx so quite a bit to go to 300,000. There are 2236 prizes so you need a bit of luck.

    I often thought about buying a ticket for this but €20 is expensive for a 1 in 300,000 chance of winning a million.

    Just after buying mine, 205.5k so about 67% sold. I never win but i can dream.

    if they sell all the tickets, only 34.25% of their takings is being paid out in prizes, complete ripoff.

    It is a ripoff but you have to have a dream and these guys know it and exploit it.I think the actual chance of winning any prize in this draw is a little over 1%.

    If your not in you cant win, i hope they dont sell all the tickets to improve my chances of winning.

    I have won twice off it. So hoping for hitting it a 3rd time. Have my lucky ticket ready :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 421 ✭✭ mockingjay


    Boo hoo, I've bought a couple of tickets for every one of these for every one of these and I've never won a cent. :(. I hope this is my lucky day!


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,876 ✭✭✭ deelite


    Is the draw being televised?


  • Registered Users Posts: 346 ✭✭ mickmc7


    Got one this morning, 272xxx. So nearly all sold.

    The televised part tonight will just be for the top 6-10 prizes. The rest is done behind closed doors, and you have to check online tomorrow or in the newspapers for the results.

    I have 2 tickets. Didn't win anything on the last one, so hoping for better luck tonight.

    Not a winner.

    I've bought a ticket in every draw and won nothing.Maybe it would be a better idea to save the 20 quid and have 20 goes at the daily million draw.
