MillonDAY is a popular Italian lottery game that takes place daily.
Entry to MillionDAY costs €1.00, with draws taking place every evening at 19:00 local time. Ticket sales end at 18:45 local time, although online overseas entries close several hours beforehand.
To enter MillionDAY, choose five numbers between 1 and 55, or go for a Quick Pick to play with randomly generated numbers. A maximum of 10 lines can be entered into each draw, with up to 20 draws at a time being permitted.
One of the unique quirks of the MillionDAY draw is that only 200 lines containing the same numbers can be entered, with some players not even able to enter their prefered numbers!
MillionDAY is a standalone game with no additional features or opportunities to win.
MillionDAY offers a fixed jackpot of €1 million, with winnings at other prize tiers being fixed too.
On average, the jackpot is typically won once a week, resulting in over 100 new millionaires since the launch of MillionDAY.
