SuperEnalotto Lotto Draw
The SuperEnalotto Lotto draw launched in 1997 as Italy’s National Lottery. Since it’s launch, lotto draws for the SuperEnalotto take place three times a week, every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday evening at 8pm and the lotto draw boasts some of the biggest jackpots in the world. That’s not to say that the SuperEnalotto is one of the richest Lotto draws in the world, it certainly doesn’t get that title.
The SuperEnalotto draw structure that creates the giant jackpots, such as the world record €147 million won on the SuperEnalotto in 2009. The jackpots are pushed up each week by the massive rollovers seen on the SuperEnalotto Lotto draw. These rollovers are created by fact that the SuperEnalotto number pool is so large. To play the SuperEnalotto Lotto draw you must choose six numbers, from a possible 90 and match these six balls to the six drawn in the SuperEnalotto lotto draw.
Many lottery draws work on a 1:49 matrix and increasing this to 90 makes the odds of winning the SuperEna lotto jackpot one in 622,614,630, while the odds of picking five out of six numbers are less at a little over 1 million to one (1,235,346 to be exact). Don’t let this put you off though, there have been some massive payouts on the SuperEnalotto lotto draw and someone always wins eventually. This makes the lotto draw hugely popular with lottery syndicates in both Italy and around the world, more players means you can cover more permutations of lottery numbers, decreasing the odds of 622 million to one significantly.
The most notable winner in the SuperEnalotto lotto draw happened in 2009. For months the lottery jackpot had been climbing higher and higher with the lotto draw creating not just local interest but interest across the world too. Lottery players from all around the world were buying lottery tickets online and players in neighbouring European countries were taking advantage of cheap flights to fly in, grab a cappuccino, a few lottery tickets and fly home. Eventually the SuperEnalotto jackpot hit €147 million and players started to wonder if it would ever be won. Eventually on 22nd August 2009, a single ticketholder from Bagnone scooped the entire jackpot with one lottery ticket.
In addition to the huge jackpots, the SuperEnalotto also pays out several tiers of lottery prizes, with a seventh ‘jolly’ number drawn every lotto draw to create an extra tier of winners.
