The prize won was an impressive €394,616, which is the highest secondary tier prize seen on the Superenalotto since the start of August, when one player won €452,161. However, this kind of prize is not a rare occurrence, with the draw on 18th September 2012 also providing one lucky winner with €393,234.
The Superenalotto prizes vary so much as it is a pari-mutuel lottery, which means the prizes on offer are made up of a proportion of the ticket sales. Plus, if either the jackpot or the next prize tier down is not won, the total prize money for that draw will roll over to the next one – which explains how sometimes we can see big Match five and the Jolly prizes.
