How Do You Win SuperEnalotto?

The multimillion-Euro SuperEnalotto jackpot is won by matching all six main numbers chosen from a pool of 90. However, there are a host of other prizes that can be claimed in the draw, with players who match as few as two balls receiving a prize worth at least €5. There are even instant prizes of €25 or more to be won when you buy your ticket, simply by matching your numbers with those contained in the magic square that appears on your slip.

Here are the prize tiers and the odds of winning at each level:

4
1 in 11,907
3

How Do You Win SuperStar?

Adding SuperStar to your SuperEnalotto game offers you the chance to win even bigger prizes for just €0.50 extra per entry. You can either pick your SuperStar number from a choice of 90 or have it automatically generated when you play, with prizes guaranteed if you match it to the SuperStar drawn on the night.

Prizes start from €5 for matching just the SuperStar and quickly rise to impressive levels if you match some of the main numbers too. If you manage to match five main numbers, the Jolly and the SuperStar, you win a SuperBonus of €1 million and in the unlikely event that you match all six main numbers and the SuperStar, an extra €2 million is added on to your prize.

Here are the SuperEnalotto SuperStar prize tiers, the awards on offer and the odds of winning within them.
