Record Euromillions jackpots: who became the owners?

How are EuroMillions Prizes Funded?

Prizes for EuroMillions draws are fully funded by the players, through revenue made from ticket sales. In the UK, a single entry to a EuroMillions draw costs £2.50, which covers the cost of entry to both the main EuroMillions draw and the UK Millionaire Maker raffle. Broken down, £1.74 of the ticket cost is your entry to the main draw, and 76p is your entry to Millionaire Maker. These separate entry fees are divided in different ways, to fund prizes in their respective draws; contributions to the EuroMillions prize pool equal 50 per cent of the £1.74 EuroMillions entry cost, with the remaining 50 per cent split between good causes, retailer commissions and administration costs.

From the 14th July 2019, the 85p Millionaire Maker entry cost is divided differently – the percentage allocated to the Millionaire Maker prize pool is decreased from 42 per cent to 30 per cent. This change does not affect Millionaire Maker prizes, nor how often special draws are held. The result is simply more money being allocated to good causes across the country.
