SuperEnalotto Jackpot Becomes Fifth-Biggest Ever

SuperEnalotto Jackpot Becomes Fifth-Biggest Ever

SuperEnalotto currently offers the largest jackpot of any lottery in the world after rolling over to hit €131 million in the latest draw. It is now the fifth-largest prize ever seen in the 22-year history of the game.

The draw on Thursday 4th April was worth €130 million, equal to the jackpot won by a single ticket holder from Caltanissetta in Sicily last April. As nobody matched all six main numbers, the top prize climbed into the top five of all time.

What Are The Biggest Jackpots?

The size of the jackpot may now lead to increased ticket sales, helping it to catch up with the top four even more quickly. A few more rollovers would take the value past the €139 million split between two players back in 2010, and then the three podium positions would be under threat.

The three biggest jackpots of all time are as follows:

  • € 147,807,299.08 won in Bagnone on 22nd August 2009
  • € 163,538,707 won in Vibo Valentia on 27th October 2016 (the highest ever win for a single player)
  • € 177,729,043.16 won on 30th October 2010 with a system of 70 shares purchased in various parts of Italy

Dates For Your Diary

With three draws every week, a new record could be set sometime this summer if the jackpot remains out of reach. There are plenty of exciting events to come before that might happen, though, including the Pasqua 100x100 draw.

This special Easter Raffle will take place on Saturday 20th April, guaranteeing that 100 players will win €100,000 each. Go to the Raffle page to find out more information about how to play and claim prizes.

Beyond Easter, draw No.50 for the year has been rescheduled from Thursday 25th April to Saturday 27th April so that it does not take place on Liberation Day. In turn, draw No.51 will be postponed from Saturday 27th to Monday 29th April, before the regular draw pattern resumes.

If you would like to get your hands on the jackpot before any of these upcoming events, you can enter the next SuperEnalotto draw on Saturday night. Take part online or go to any authorised lottery retailer.
