The SuperEnalotto draw from Italy is one of the most attractive global lotteries with a good number of big lottery wins. Now people from all over the globe can play this lottery: a fact that can only add to its popularity.
On its inception in 1997, the draw was only open to Italian players but this has recently been expanded to include people from all over the world. The majority of players still reside in Italy but the availability of methods to play online has widened the opportunity to win the huge weekly jackpot to everyone no matter where they are. Of course this also increases the size of money injected into the draw and indeed the size of the jackpots themselves.
With regard to the prizes available, one of the most attractive aspects of the Italian draw is the size of the massive jackpots given. One of the largest payouts from a global lottery was from the SupaEnalotto. A single ticket matched all the numbers drawn on October 30 2010 and won the jackpot that week of $247 943 104 (or 177 800 000 Euros) but it transpired there was not one winner as the ticket was held by a seventy strong syndicate. This group had been playing for a while hoping for the jackpot and when it happened all seventy members found that, even after the total had been shared, they each received 2.5 million Euros.
When we consider the largest individual win in the SuperEnalotto we find that a resident of the small village of Bagnone in Italy won a staggering $211 800 000 (147 807 299) in XXXX. This news sparked excited celebrations and parties among the community’s two thousand inhabitants to mark such a huge SuperEnalotto win by one of their number. Interestingly the actual winner of the prize is still held a secret (it seems Bagnone is a close-knit community!) but the general opinion seems to be that it was a 47-year-old farmer from the area.
These winners and everyone else playing this Italian lottery have to match six main numbers, a Superstar number and a Jolly number. As with other lotteries, you have to match the six main numbers to win the jackpot. You have to pay more to use the Superstar number but this can make a big difference as matching the number can qualify a player for a prize for matching even one, two or even no numbers besides. The inclusion of the Jolly number helps those who match five numbers the opportunity to increase their prize money. All of the numbers are chosen from the range of numbers from one to ninety.
As with all other global lotteries it is worth at least understanding the odds of winning a prize in the SuperEnalotto draw. The chances of matching all six of the main numbers is 1 in 622 614 630, which are pretty tough odds. It has to be remembered however that someone has to win the top prize and the jackpot has been won many times in the history of the draw. Once the jackpot has been won, the top prize is reset for the following week at a very respectable 15 000 000 Euros. This figure alone makes it worth while playing the Italian SuperEnalotto but you should understand this is a minimum and often this figure rises well above this initial jackpot available.
The Italian SuperEnalotto is very much one of the most attractive global lotteries available and is worth playing as much as any other.
