The May 31 EuroMillions draw will offer one UK ticket holder the chance to win a million pounds per month for a year

A UK ticket-holder will bank £1 million every month for a year in a new prize being launched by the National Lottery, it has been announced.

The EuroMillions millionaire raffle, which guarantees to create a UK millionaire in every EuroMillions draw, will add the new twist next Friday as a one-off.

A National Lottery spokesman said: "This is a fantastic chance for players to see their bank balance boosted beyond their dreams each and every month for a year.

"We will have extra champagne on ice ready for a year of celebrations. In order to be in with a chance of banking the stunning prize, players need to buy a EuroMillions ticket for the draw on May 31."

More than 3,300 millionaires have been created since the National Lottery was created in 1994. The EuroMillions millionaire raffle is a UK-only game that is part of EuroMillions.
