Sat, Apr 17, 2021
Superena lotto causes much excitement not just in Italy but also across the world. It's jackpot starts at 1.3 million (EUR) and rises with each rollover, the difference with Superena is that it is drawn three times per week, that's three chances a week for the jackpot!
This also means that the Superena Lotto jackpot climbs very quickly, often reaching hundreds of millions, making it one of the largest lottos in Europe.
Superena Lotto is a 6/90 lotto game. In order to win the SuperenaLotto jackpot, you must match 6 numbers with the balls drawn from 1 to 90. Match any 5 of the numbers plus the 'Jolly' (equivalent to a 'bonus ball') and you win a second tier prize.
A rollover occurs when the jackpot is not won. Superena rollovers are uncapped.
Draws take place on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday at 7:30pm (CET).

Italy's SuperenaLotto is the biggest lotto in Italy and one of the biggest in Europe.
There have been some noteable lotto wins. The largest win so far was on October 30, 2010 when a single ticket holder scooped 177,800,000 euros setting a new record a single individual win.
October 2008 - 100.7 million(EUR) was won by another single ticket from Catania.
August 2009 - After many months of rollovers, 147.8 million(EUR) was won on a single ticket by a resident in the small Italian town of Bagnone in Tuscany and was, until recently, the largest ever Super Enalotto win.
Starting out in 1950 as EnaLotto, the game was updated and re-launched in 1997 as the SuperEnaLotto
The draw process was revamped in June 2009. Prior to this, the main balls used were the first numbers drawn from the Lottomatica regional draws in the Bari, Florence, Milan, Naples, Palermo and Rome lotteries, the 'Jolly' ball was the first ball drawn from the Venice lottery. This system has now been replaced by a single draw for the six main balls and the Jolly number. A second draw is now used to produce the 'SuperStar' ball which is purchased in addition to the normal ticket and is used to increase the winnings.
UK When syndicate leader Peter Cockhrane realised that his numbers had come up, his main worry was preventing his five year old daughter Rachel from defacing the winning ticket worth 101,288 (GBP), so he hid the ticket in one of the drawers under his bed.
