SuperEnalotto could be set to attract even more players than usual in the next few days as the jackpot is currently the largest on offer in the world. A phenomenal €145.5 million will be up for grabs in the next draw on Saturday night, a prize pot which leaves all other games trailing in SuperEnalotto’s wake.
After a Powerball top prize of $246.8 million was won by someone from Atlanta, Georgia last Saturday night and a Mega Millions jackpot worth $133 million was won in Tuscola, Illinois on Friday, SuperEnalotto currently stands alone as the one lottery offering a nine-figure top prize.
It is not only the biggest lottery prize on the planet, but also the third-largest SuperEnalotto jackpot in the 19-year history of the game, having recently gone past the €139 million which was split between two participants back in 2010. Another rollover or two will see the current jackpot eclipse the €147.8 million given away in 2009 and move into second place on the leaderboard. The record SuperEnalotto jackpot is the €177.7 million claimed by a syndicate of 70 players who bought their ticket in Milan for the draw on 30th October 2010.
The last time the SuperEnalotto jackpot was won was on 16th July 2015, but excitement is steadily building as the top prize creeps ever upwards, and the fact that it is now the largest lottery prize in the world is sure to spark even more ticket sales.
Thousands of players still win great prizes in every draw, even when the jackpot rolls over, and in the most recent draw on Thursday 22nd September there were six participants who matched five of the six main numbers to win €35,571 each. You can visit the SuperEnalotto page to find out more about the game and see the latest results.
With Powerball already back up to $50 million and a EuroMillions Superdraw on Friday 30th September set to raise the jackpot to €130 million, it may not be too long before SuperEnalotto is overtaken, but it could also be won before that happens.
