THE SUPERENALOTTO LOTTERY (SUPERENALOTTO)
History Of SuperEnaLotto
|This lottery developed from the 1950’s ‘EnaLotto’ into SuperEnaLotto in 1997 and has since become the most popular lottery game in Italy, with thousands of players participating every week. It underwent further alteration on July 1st, 2009 to simplify the draw process. One single draw occurs for the six winning numbers plus the ‘Jolly’ number, and a second draw chooses the ‘SuperStar’ number. This gives players a chance to win a set amount of prize money even if they have only chosen one number matching the SuperStar pick. Italian lottery organisers SISAL launched a dedicated television channel for viewers to have up-to-date results available to them. The SuperEnaLotto has no rollover limit and can sometimes rollover for months. This is one of the reasons for its popularity – a chance to win a massive prize in the multi-millions.
How To Play SuperEnaLotto
Players choose 6 numbers from a 1-90 range, making it easy to play. If a player matches all 6 numbers, they win the jackpot. But you can win prizes even if you have only picked 3 matching numbers. And even more prizes can be won if you picked the ‘Jolly’ number. This is an exciting aspect of the first draw and gives players who have matched 5 out of the 6 numbers a chance to win larger prizes. It therefore affects the secondary prizes, not the jackpot.
There’s an additional chance to win with the ‘SuperStar’ number, which costs a bit extra to play but if matched to the one drawn can guarantee the player an increase of their existing prize. A player who only matches the SuperStar number will win a set prize amount, making this extra option a worthwhile one.
SuperEnaLotto Rollovers And Giant Jackpots
This lottery is wildly attractive because it has no limit to rollovers or roll downs of jackpots. Needless to say, the winnings can grow to massive amounts. Some of the biggest wins have occurred in the past few years. The largest to date was drawn on May 4th, 2005 and shared between ten ticket buyers in Milan, totalling €71,767,565.57. The largest win by a single player amounted to €177,800,000 on October 30th, 2010.
