THE SUPERENALOTTO LOTTERY (SUPERENALOTTO)
History Of SuperEnaLotto
|SuperEnaLotto is an Italian lottery which has been played since December 1997. It has a reputation for offering jackpots that are among the largest in the world – although it should be stated that the odds of winning these fabulous jackpots are amongst the worst on offer by any lottery (if not the worst). Try odds of about 1 in 622,614,630.
The objective of SuperEnaLotto (and the source of those terrible odds) is to match 6 numbers out of a possible 90. Should a player match all of them, he or she will be eligible to walk away with the jackpot prize. Besides the jackpot, though, SuperEnaLotto has another five prize categories in which players can win. For a nationwide lottery offering prizes that range into the millions, it is by far the most difficult game in the world in terms of hitting the jackpot. SuperEna jackpots have the ability to grow immensely because there is no cap on the number of times they can roll over before a winner is announced, and there are no roll downs of jackpots to lower tier divisions.
The biggest single jackpot win to date in the SuperEnaLotto was won in October 2010. This incredibly lucky player walked away with winnings totaling €177,800,000. This mind-boggling amount was the accumulation of 8 months’ worth of roll-overs. It’s one of the very few lotteries that are drawn three times a week – Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays at 19h30 CET. The draws take place in Rome, Italy. Having three draws per week actually ensures a steady stream of rollover draws, thus maximizing excitement for lottery players around the world – this simply adds to the allure of trying to strike a full jackpot win.
