SuperEnalotto Reaches Record €210.5m Jackpot

Some lotteries are considerably harder to win than others. Players of the SuperEnalotto draw probably don’t need to be told that fact. The top prize hasn’t been won for just over a year and on Thursday May 26, there is a record €210.5 million (£179.6 million) jackpot.

That figure makes the top prize in the SuperEnalotto draw, the current highest in the world. It’s even higher than the Mega Millions and Powerball jackpots in the USA, that can both climb above the billion dollars mark.

It was on May 22 of last year that the SuperEnalotto jackpot was last won. A ticket holder won a fantastic €156 million top prize but that’s the last time anyone has been able to match the six main numbers.

The minimum jackpot in the SuperEnalotto draw is €31 million. There are three draws a week and in just over a year now, every single one of them has ended in a rollover. It’s still short of the record €220 million EuroMillions jackpot won last year but that total is within reach.

Unlike in EuroMillions and EuroJackpot, there is no jackpot cap in the SuperEnalotto draw. The jackpot keeps on climbing at just over a million euros each draw. There’s no must-be-won draw as is the case this week in the UK Lotto and was recently introduced in the Irish Lotto. Perhaps one should be introduced, imagine the excitement over a must-be-won draw with for example, a 150 million euros prize.

This is only the second time that the SuperEnalotto jackpot has reached €200 million. The only other time was three years ago. Finally, a ticket holder won the €209.1 million jackpot.

Why is it so difficult to win the SuperEnalotto jackpot? It’s simply because of the number of balls in the draw. The UK Lotto has 59 balls, but SuperEnalotto has 90 of them. That means the odds of winning the SuperEnalotto jackpot are 1 in 622,614,630. This can be compared to the odds of 1 in 139,838,160 of winning the top prize in a EuroMillions draw.

When you look to try and win a lottery jackpot, looking at the recent results can help. It can’t in any way of course guarantee a win. How do you solve the puzzle of how to win the SuperEnalotto jackpot, when there are so many numbers to choose from?

Single figure numbers haven’t been appearing a great deal of late. They’ve only turned up in two of the last 13 draws. Number 2 has appeared twice so that might not come out again for a while.

Numbers 1 and 4 are overdue an appearance, neither have been drawn out in recent months. It was on January 25 that we last saw number 4. Also rather shy is number 5 and that’s only ever been drawn out 203 times in SuperEnalotto history.

18 and 60 hold the record for the least number of times drawn out with both on the 197 mark. Numbers 12 and 70 are yet to be drawn out this year, so could they be the ones who help you become a multi-millionaire?
