As many big winners can attest to, the SuperEnalotto has definitely become one of the top global lotteries. And a big reason why it has become so popular is because of the fact that people from all over the world can play this lottery.
Originally founded in 1997 for Italian players, the SuperEnalotto has expanded to include participants from numerous countries. And while the bulk of SuperEnalotto players still reside in Italy, the advent of online affiliates has made it so that anybody can compete for the massive jackpot each and every week. This only serves to further increase the amount of money and prizes available in the drawings.
Speaking of the prizes, the huge jackpots are another big reason for this lotto’s success. In fact, one of the biggest international jackpots in history was won through the SuperEnalotto! On October 30th, 2010, a single ticket won a SuperEnalotto-record €177,800,000 ($247,943,104). However, the ticket holder wasn’t alone in the win because they were part of a 70-player syndicate, who had been playing together to crack the giant jackpot. When all of the winnings were divided up, each of the 70 players walked away with over €2.5 million.
As far as the biggest single SuperEnalotto winner goes, a man from the tiny village of Bagnone, Italy ignited a celebration by hitting a €147,807,299 ($211.8 million) jackpot. Nearly all of the tiny village’s 2,000 residents were dancing and partying in the streets after learning that their town had become famous for the biggest SuperEnalotto jackpot win (at the time). And while this player is still unidentified even today, it’s rumored that the man was a 47-year-old farmer from Bagnone.
Moving past the big winners, those who are interested in playing the SuperEnalotto should know that the game features six main numbers, a SuperStar number and a Jolly number. As you may have guessed, the six main numbers determine who wins the huge weekly jackpot. The SuperStar number costs extra to play, but this digit is very helpful because it enables people to win a prize even if they only match 0, 1 or 2 numbers. Finally, the Jolly number gives 5-number winners a chance to increase their prize further. In the case of all three types of numbers, players can choose between 1 and 90.
As far as a person’s chances of winning the SuperEnalotto jackpot go, people have a 1 in 622,614,630 shot at matching all of the main numbers. And while these are no doubt some tough odds, players should keep in mind that the SuperEnalotto’s biggest prize has been won many times throughout the lottery organization’s history. Assuming the jackpot is won, the following week’s top prize is always set at €15,000,000, which means it’s always worth playing the SuperEnalotto – of course, you can usually count on the jackpot being much higher than €15 million!
All in all, this lotto is definitely on par with the other top lottery organizations in terms of prizes and number options.
