    Meeeeeeee!!!

    Can’t remember if it’s shown or not. All the numbers will be online anyway for the smaller prizes!

    Bought one just now for the craic. Looks like just over 400,000 bought if my ticket number is anything to go by.

    Contemplating buying one, been buying one every year but never won anything, not in you can’t win i suppose!

    Received one as a Christmas present, will gladly refund the purchase price to the present giver should I win the top prize.

    Bought one Saturday in the 360,000's. Would be interested to see if more sold this year compared to 2017. The draw wont be on TV, its not your typical raffle draw I suppose, and they use 'Specialised electronic random number generator hardware' to determine the results according to their website.


    Selection of Winning Tickets

    (a) The Draw will be conducted on 31st December 2018, no earlier than 22:00 hours.

    (b) At the Christmas Millionaire Raffle 2018 Draw there shall be randomly selected five thousand, five hundred and sixty eight (5,568) entries from all valid Christmas Millionaire Raffle 2018 Tickets purchased for the Game in accordance with these Game Rules and procedures determined by the Company from time to time.

    (c) Specialised electronic random number generator hardware will be employed to randomly select the required number of Unique Multiple-Digit Numbers for each division of Prizes in the Christmas Millionaire Raffle 2018 Draw, 31st December 2018.

    (d) A Christmas Millionaire Raffle 2018 Ticket can only win one prize in the Christmas Millionaire Raffle 2018 Draw. Once a Winning Ticket has been drawn it is not eligible for any further prizes in that Draw and will be excluded thereafter from the Draw.

    (e) At the Christmas Millionaire Raffle 2018 Draw there shall be randomly selected a Unique Multi-Digit Number or a series of Unique Multi-Digit Numbers, as required by the prize structure for the Christmas Millionaire Raffle 2018 Game.

    (f) The Winning Ticket Numbers will be published on the Company’s website www.lottery.ie.

    So total prize money of under 2 million, ticket sales 12.5 million...?
    Expected return for your €25 is €9.23 :(


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,375 ✭✭✭bri007


    Just gave in and bought one, into the 420+ now going by my ticket, may sell out this year compared to last year.

    Bit of fun, few hundred euro prize be nice to beat the dreaded January blues and the dread of seeing the post man dropping bills in the door instead of pre Christmas Xmas cards!


  • Registered Users Posts: 20,953 ✭✭✭✭Mushy


    So they randomly select an amount to go into the final draw? Wouldn't have bothered my hole getting one if I'd known that. You essentially pay to enter a draw to further enter a draw...ridiculous and I feel like an idiot


  • Registered Users Posts: 22,180 ✭✭✭✭Autosport


    Just bought for myself aswell, I got my father one for Christmas so that's 2 chances in the family :D

    It doesn't change any of your odds of winning a prize or the amount you might win. So don't worry, you're not an idiot for the reason you think you are :)

    My folks sent one over in a Christmas card about 7 years ago, got up on New Years Day with a sore head to check online and we won €1,000 - couldn't believe it. We have been getting one ever since and have not won anything since


  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 189 ✭✭Little Less Conversation


    1 in 90 wins a prize and minimum win is €500. That's not bad at all.


  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 189 ✭✭Little Less Conversation


    I never get picked though so this is probably going to be the same.

    How did you pick and choose which of the 20 posts in the thread you read, or was it purely random?

  • Registered Users Posts: 20,137 ✭✭✭✭dxhound2005


    There will be 5,568 winners and 494,432 losers if all the tickets are sold.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,048 ✭✭✭Trigger Happy


    I can resist everything except temptation.
    I bought one.


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,136 ✭✭✭✭lawred2


    €12.5 in ticket sales if all 500k tickets are sold

    ah ok - was wondering how on earth 12.5m tickets could be sold in Ireland

    No I read them all - I see no mention in the structure of the draw that there is a draw to get into a draw

    I may have severely mis-read this situation. Still an idiot, but feel somewhat better about it now
