SuperEnalotto Jackpot Reaches €250 Million

For the first time in its history, the SuperEnalotto jackpot has reached €250 million. It is now more than €40 million higher than the previous record for the biggest-ever prize seen on the lottery.

Europe’s Largest Jackpot

The jackpot has now been growing for more than 14 months. It was last won on 22nd May 2021, when a player from Montappone in Fermo, Marche, matched all the numbers to win €156 million.

It reset to €31 million for the next draw, crossed the €100 million mark in October, and then passed €200 million in March. Shortly afterwards the jackpot overtook the €209 million that has stood as the SuperEnalotto record since a ticket holder from Lodi in Lombardy won €209 million in August 2019.

It is also the largest lottery prize to have ever been seen in Europe, as the EuroMillions jackpot cap currently stands at €240 million. There is no limit to high SuperEnalotto can go, so it will continue to rise until someone matches all the numbers.

A number of players have come close to winning the record-breaking SuperEnalotto jackpot. On 2nd August, a ticket sold in Casarsa della Delizia matched five of the main numbers plus the Jolly. The lucky player received €747,557.

How to Win

You can win SuperEnalotto prizes by matching as few as two numbers out of six, or by matching the SuperStar if you add this option to your ticket. However, to win the jackpot you must match all six main numbers.

There have been 125 jackpot winners in SuperEnalotto history, following the game’s launch in 1997. You have always been required to select six numbers from 1 to 90 since SuperEnalotto began.

Draws take place every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday evening, and you can see the latest results as soon as they are available.
