However, this is far from the biggest rollover session ever seen on the SuperEnalotto. Back in 2010, the jackpot rolled over for a whopping eight months, to create a jackpot worth a staggering €177,800,000, which was eventually won in October 2011 after rolling over since February. This mammoth rollover meant no jackpot winner was found for over 100 draws!
Plus, as the SuperEnalotto jackpot is pari-mutuel, the more the lottery rolls over, the more the prize fund increases, as people from all over Italy and even the rest of the world become eager to take on the challenge of beating those incredibly high odds to claim the top prize. Even Madonna took part in the SuperEnalotto back in June 2012, when she was on tour in the country and bought 100 SuperEnalotto tickets. Bizarrely, the Queen of Pop was one of the lucky ones, and actually won €120,000 on her tickets! Naturally, the philanthropic singer immediately donated her winnings to a school building project in Malawi.
So if you fancy having a go on Madonna’s favourite lottery (well, at least we think it is!) to win that €27.5 million jackpot, simply head over to the Buy Tickets page now and see if you are in luck this week!
