The Ultimate Guide to SuperEnalotto!

Here is everything you need to know about playing SuperEnalotto online - the popular Italian lottery that's famous for producing some of the world's biggest jackpot prizes, including its record prize of €209,160,441 million, won in August 2019. For 18 months, SuperEnalotto's amazing jackpot held the title of being the biggest lottery prize awarded anywhere in Europe. Only the EuroMillions Superdraw has awarded bigger jackpots.

How Do I Play SuperEnalotto Online?

SuperEnalotto is Italy’s biggest and most popular lottery! To play SuperEnalotto online, you simply need to pick 6 numbers from a guess range of 1 to 90. When the numbers are drawn, every ticket is automatically assigned a bonus or “Jolly” number for a boosted secondary prize. SuperEnalotto has 5 additional prize divisions that players can win from, which include the opportunity to win a boosted second place Match 5 prize!

The Italian lotto is famous for producing huge jackpots after lengthy rollover cycles. SuperEnalotto has a guaranteed starting jackpot of €2 million, with a percentage of the ticket sales adding onto this amount.

How to Win the SuperEnalotto Jackpot

The jackpot winners match all six numbers from the main pool. The huge second prize is scooped up by those matching 5 out of the 6 main numbers as well as the Jolly number - a bonus ball! The Italian national lottery's flagship game offers six prize categories: the jackpot, a second prize and four additional prize categories. Players can win prizes by matching a minimum of just 2 numbers. The SuperEnalotto SuperStar (a sister game) even offers 14 prize divisions!

SuperEnalotto has been one of the world’s most popular online lotto games for years. This is hardly surprising when you consider the fact that Italy’s national lottery often offers huge jackpots which can roll over without hitting a maximum cap!

SuperEnalotto Draw Times

SuperEnalotto draws are staged three times a week in Rome, every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday at 20:00 local time. Official SuperEnalotto draw results are posted shortly after every draw.

The only time this schedule changes is due to public holidays. If a draw cannot be moved to the previous or following day without creating further clashes in the draw schedule, some draws may be brought forward in order to accommodate an additional draw during the next week. You can view all schedule changes on the SuperEnalotto play page at theLotter.

What Is the SuperStar Lottery? Is it Same as the SuperEnalotto?

Well… They’re not exactly the same. The SuperEnalotto SuperStar is in fact a sister lottery to the SuperEnalotto. The two games share the drawn numbers and they also share things like the jackpot prize. The SuperStar draws an additional number which has the potential to add a SuperBonus of €2 million to the normal SuperEnalotto jackpot, and a massive €1 million to the second prize.

The SuperStar can also multiply secondary prizes by 25-100 times and offers additional prize divisions!

What Is the SuperEnalotto Jolly?

The SuperEnalotto Jolly Ball is a bonus number that helps secondary prize winners win a SuperBonus, which is a boosted secondary 5+1 prize! The Jolly Ball is always drawn alongside the main balls and every ticket is automatically assigned a Jolly number. If the number assigned to you is drawn and you match the 5 main numbers, you’re a SuperBonus winner! Whilst you do not have to match the Jolly in order to win the jackpot, the Italian Lotto Jolly ball is intended to help you win an incredible boosted secondary prize.

What Are the SuperEnalotto Jackpot Winning Odds?

The odds of you winning the SuperEnalotto are 622,614,630 to 1.

How Can I Increase My Chances of Winning SuperEnalotto Online?

At theLotter, you can play the SuperEnalotto and SuperEnalotto SuperStar with a variety of play options. Along with one-time entries, multi-draw packages and subscriptions, theLotter also offers odds boosting syndicate play and bundle packages!

Playing SuperEnalotto in a syndicate gives you improved odds of winning multiple lottery prizes while costing you a fraction of the price. How does it work? When you join a syndicate, you’re able to play hundreds of number combinations without having to buy all the tickets yourself because each syndicate player owns a portion, or share, of the collective amount of tickets.

In 2017, one of our syndicates won $106,000 playing US Powerball!

SuperEnalotto- An Italian Lottery Favourite

SuperEnalotto History

The history of the Italian SuperEnalotto stretches all the way back to the 1950's when it was simply called “Enalotto”. Enalotto was originally created as a 1X2 game, where the results were players would need to mark either “1” or “2” in each of the 12 options depending on the numbers they expected to be drawn. Almost 4 decades later on 3 December 1997, the Enalotto was reincarnated by Italian lottery operator Sisal to become SuperEnalotto. This was done through the innovative vision of Rodolfo Molo, the son of the Sisal founder. Players would now choose 6 numbers between 1 and 90, and for the first time in Italian lottery history, there would be a jackpot that would roll over until someone won it! In October 2021, Sisal announced the launch of an exciting new feature called “WinBox”. All SuperStar tickets purchased through the lottery’s website or application will have the WinBox feature automatically applied, and will give players three additional chances to win up to €500 in prizes!

The revolutionary Italian lottery soon had jackpots that rivaled big names in the industry like US Powerball and EuroMillions and became a source of pride for Italian lottery fans. Since then, SuperEnalotto decided to stage three draws a week instead of the original two, added a Bonus Ball and the SuperStar bonus number! If you like Italian lotteries, you will enjoy playing Italy Lotto, or the daily MillionDAY!
