SuperEnalotto Jackpot Passes €90 Million
SuperEnalotto fans across the world are bracing themselves for a mammoth windfall as the jackpot total of Italy’s favourite lottery game creeps ever higher. After failing to produce a winner in Tuesday night’s draw, the reward heading into the next draw now stands at an enormous €90.1 million.
No player has been able to take down the jackpot since one lucky player from Acireale won a prize worth over €21.8 million on Thursday 16th July 2015. With this run now a mere 43 days away from its anniversary, SuperEnalotto players will be desperate not to let the elusive jackpot reach this remarkable milestone. The game is still waiting for the first top prize to be banked since a number of changes were made to the game in February this year and it’s safe to say that any potential winner would certainly see their financial situation improve beyond their wildest dreams should they match those six all-important numbers.
Thanks to this latest barren period for fans, SuperEnalotto now offers the single largest lottery jackpot in Europe and the third biggest prize in the world, behind only the American giants of Powerball ($110 million) and Mega Millions ($251 million). The jackpot still has some way to go, however, if it is to topple the largest SuperEnalotto prize in history. That honour still resides with a prize total of €177.7 million, which was claimed by a syndicate of 70 people on the 30th October 2010. The current jackpot, despite its immense size, would still not quite even make it into the top five SuperEnalotto prizes ever won, although a total of €94.8 million claimed in May 2012 is being placed under increasing pressure as the days and weeks pass by.
SuperEnalotto takes a short break this evening as Italians across the country observe Festa della Repubblica (Republic Day), but fear not, as the draw will return on Saturday evening when players will test their luck once more in an attempt to clinch this massive jackpot. To be in with a chance of winning, simply purchase your tickets online or from any authorised retailer across the country. Good luck!
