Systems and Strategies

The only way to guarantee that you will win the SuperEnalotto jackpot is to buy all 622,614,630 number combinations, however, you can increase your chances of winning by using one or more of these SuperEnalotto systems and strategies.

Strategy

System Entries

The most effective way to improve your odds of winning is to enter several lines, and you can do this easily on one ticket in a number of ways.

Integrated Systems

Instead of choosing the standard six numbers out of 90, you can select more numbers, which is called an Integrated System (Sistemi Integrali). You play every combination of six numbers within the selected range when using this method. For example, from a range of seven numbers, it would produce seven lots of six numbers, costing €7, whilst selecting from a range of eight numbers produces 28 possible combinations, which would cost €28.

You can also use Integrated System entries whilst playing SuperStar. The following table shows how the cost of playing increases proportionately to the number of combinations entered, but remember that the chances of winning improve with each additional number you add.

Multistella Systems

You can play Integrated System entries with multiple SuperStars using an array of pre-packaged Multistella Systems. This is how they work:

Multistella 7

  • 10 Integrated Systems of 7 numbers, with 1 SuperStar per system - €105

Multistella 8

  • 5 Integrated Systems of 8 numbers, with 1 SuperStar per system - €210
  • 10 Integrated Systems of 8 numbers, with 1 SuperStar per system - €420
  • 15 Integrated Systems of 8 numbers, with 1 SuperStar per system - €630

Multistella 9

  • 5 Integrated Systems of nine numbers, with 1 SuperStar per system - €630
  • 10 Integrated Systems of nine numbers, with 1 SuperStar per system - €1,260

Reduced Systems

A more cost-effective alternative is the Reduced System (Intergrali Ridotti). This allows you to select more than six numbers but, as you do not buy all possible combinations, it does not guarantee that you will win the jackpot if your range of numbers includes all six of the numbers drawn.

Instead, you are guaranteed to win one of the lower-level prizes, depending on which reduced system you pick. For example:

  • A G3 entry guarantees that if you match 6 numbers, you will win at least one Match 3 prize. If you match 5 numbers, you will win at least one Match 2 prize. The cost to play the G3 system starts from €10, you need to play a minimum of 20 numbers, up to a maximum of 33 numbers.
  • A G4 entry guarantees that if you match 6 numbers, you will win at least one Match 4 prize. If you match 5 numbers, you will win at least one Match 3 prize. If you match 4 numbers, you will win at least one Match 2 prize. The cost to play the G4 system starts from €10, you need to play a minimum of 13 numbers, up to a maximum of 19 numbers.
  • A G5 entry guarantees that if you match 6 numbers, you will win at least one Match 5 prize. If you match 5 numbers, you will win at least one Match 4 prize. If you match 4 numbers, you will win at least one Match 3 prize. If you match 3 numbers, you will win at least one Match 2 prize. The cost to play the G5 system starts from €14, you need to play a minimum of 10 numbers, up to a maximum of 12 numbers.

The higher the guarantee, the more expensive the SuperEnalotto Reduced System entry costs to play.

Strategy

Bases and Variants

The Bases and Variants (Basi e Varianti) System is a systematic entry method where you can choose specific numbers to appear in every line you play, then create multiple entries by varying them with a second set of numbers. The playslip has two grids of 90 numbers, you choose between 1 and 5 numbers in the first grid, which establish the numbers that will appear in every entry, then in the second grid you select the numbers you want to vary them with.

The Bases and Variants options are labelled B1 to B5, with the number representing the amount of base numbers selected. For example, if you played a B5 with the base numbers 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 and picked 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 as your varying numbers, you would play these lines in the draw:

  • 1
  • 2
  • 3
  • 4
  • 5
  • 6
  • 1
  • 2
  • 3
  • 4
  • 5
  • 7
  • 1
  • 2
  • 3

  • 5
  • 8

  • 3
  • 4
  • 5
  • 9
  • 1
  • 2
  • 3
  • 4
  • 5
  • 10

A B4 entry using 1, 2, 3 and 4 as the bases and 5, 6, 7 and 8 as the variants would mean you played these lines:

  • 1
  • 2
  • 3
  • 4

Syndicate

SuperEnalotto Syndicates

The advantage of playing in a syndicate is that you can enter multiple lines into a SuperEnalotto draw without having to purchase all of the combinations yourself. Although joining a syndicate increases your chances of winning, it does mean that any prizes won are shared between all participants.

The biggest SuperEnalotto win in history, the €177.7 million jackpot won in October 2010, was won by a syndicate of 70 players on a ticket bought in Milan.

Syndicates are usually made up of family members, work colleagues or friends. Alternatively, Sisal runs a Systems Bulletin Board (Bacheca dei Sistemi), allowing you to buy shares in systems with other players, creating syndicates from individual players, both online and at retailers.
