Despite its 6/90 matrix making the SuperEnalotto difficult to win, this does not seem to deter Italian residents and lottery players from all around the world from playing. €27 billion per year is spent on the game, of which approximately 50% of proceeds go to the Italian government, making lottery revenue one of their key income streams. This is then redistributed amongst various departments including the treasury, the Olympic committee and the horse racing industry. Of the remainder, approximately 38% goes to the prize fund, 8% to retailer and 5% to the operators, with 6% being paid in tax.
The next draw on the SuperEnalotto is due to take place on Thursday, 16th August 2012. Good luck to all who are playing for a chance to be a winner of that jackpot of €8.9 million!
