Euromillions officials also introduce a lot of special European Millionaire Maker events in each of the participating countries. Existing special draws in the UK are also about to change – two UK Millionaire Maker prizes will be offered twice a week, Mega Fridays will become Mega Weeks, and a new UK Monthly Bonus Draw will offer a prize pool of £1.000.0000.
