SuperEnalotto is the most popular national lottery game in Italy, and is played by millions of players each and every week. In October 2010 the SuperEnalotto jackpot topped the €177 million mark and produces jackpots of record breaking proportions quite often. Unlike many other lotteries around the globe there is no cap on the amount of times that a Superenalotto jackpot can rollover; the main reason that such large jackpots are achieved for this lottery.
The SuperEnalotto jackpot is now worth €19.4 million after players in last night’s draw failed to match the six main numbers drawn. All draws are held at 8pm in Italy, but participation in this lottery game is now open to players all over the world, thanks to the ability to buy SuperEnalotto tickets online. You can take part in Superenalotto by purchasing your tickets online from anywhere in the world.
There are several ways to play SuperEnalotto, but the simplest way is to select 6 numbers from the range 1 to 90 for each entry that you want to make. To participate in the SuperEnalotto game you will need to enter two lines of numbers as a minimum, but the low cost of tickets reflects that fact.
When the draw takes place at 8pm on Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday, six main numbers and one ‘Jolly’ number will be selected at random by the SuperEnalotto machine. The Jolly number is very similar to the Bonus Ball that is drawn in the UK Lotto game and also to the Lucky Star numbers that are drawn in the EuroMillions game and the purpose of the Jolly number is to help players win a bigger consolation prize if the jackpot eludes them.
If no player wins the jackpot then it is rolled over to the jackpot fund for the next SuperEnalotto draw. With 90 balls in play, rollovers – and the high jackpots they help to create – occur regularly.
