What Is a EuroMillions Superdraw?

The Superdraw is a highly anticipated event on the lottery calendar, but what is it?

The EuroMillions Superdraw is a special lottery event staged from time to time that guarantees a massive jackpot. A Superdraw can be announced at any time, usually to coincide with a special event. It replaces the regular EuroMillions lottery, rolling over until it is finally won. The starting jackpot of a Superdraw lottery has been set at an incredible €100 million. This is much more than the usual EuroMillions base jackpot, making the Superdraw a draw not to be missed!

The EuroMillions Superdraw jackpots are made possible by contributions from the dedicated Reserve Fund of the pan-European lottery. At every regular EuroMillions draw, 8.6% of the generated income is deposited in a Common Prize Fund and this money accumulates until it is used to guarantee a Superdraw jackpot.

How Do You Play the EuroMillions Superdraw?

Playing the EuroMillions Superdraw is just as simple as participating in the regular, twice-weekly drawings of the EuroMillions. 

Superdraw drawings take place according to the standard rules of the EuroMillions. If the jackpot is not won, the jackpot prize money rolls over to the next draw, continuing to rise until it reaches the jackpot cap of €190 million.

Buy your tickets at theLotter so that you can play this massive lottery. All you need to do is select five main numbers (1-50), and two Lucky Stars (1-12), or increase your chances by selecting a systematic form. Choose these numbers on your own or use Quick Pick to randomly select your numbers. You can purchase a one-time entry or, better yet, improve your odds of winning a huge prize by participating in a EuroMillions syndicate or bundle.

To make sure that you don’t miss the Superdraw, and to guarantee that you’ll play every draw when the jackpot prize rolls over, consider purchasing a EuroMillions multi-draw ticket. Even better, opt for a EuroMillions subscription and get the added bonus of every 10th ticket free.

History of the EuroMillions Superdraw

When did the EuroMillions Superdraw start? Was it always available as part of the EuroMillions lottery?

The first EuroMillions ever took place in February 2004. At the time, only France, Spain, and the United Kingdom took part. By the time that the EuroMillions Superdraw was introduced on 9 February 2007, there were nine participating countries. That first Superdraw offered a starting jackpot of €100 million and it was won in its entirety by an anonymous player from Belgium.

The Superdraw that took place on 3 October 2014 rolled over six times to be the first to reach the jackpot cap of €190 million. It was won on 24th October by a single ticket purchased in Portugal.

The Superdraw planned for 6 June 2014 was the first to be superseded by the regular EuroMillions jackpot that had been accumulating prior to the draw. A ticket bought in Spain won a €137 million prize in the drawing on 13 June 2014.

Most of the Superdraw lottery winners have elected to remain anonymous but two exceptions were winners who purchased their tickets in the UK.  On 7 October 2011, Angela and Dave Dawes won the jackpot worth £101 million. In the drawing held on 14 March 2014, Neil Trotter won a jackpot worth £107 million.

As the jackpot cap of the EuroMillions Superdraw is a staggering €190 million, the lottery can never offer a higher jackpot. Even so, that jackpot cap has been reached only once in the history of the Superdraw. This happened at the drawing staged on 3 October 2014. The jackpot rolled over six times to reach the jackpot cap of €190 million on 24 October. The sole winner was a ticket purchased in Portugal.

The €190 million jackpot cap was also reached in a regular EuroMillions drawing in August 2012. That massive jackpot was shared by two lucky tickets.

On theLotter, you are welcome to choose 6-14 lucky numbers, depending on the availability of this play option in the lottery you select. Lotteries which offer systematic forms will have a systematic tab on the play page. The total number of lines generated will appear in the systematic tab.

For example, in the Europe EuroMillions, you are invited to choose 6 -10 numbers for your systematic form. You will first need to choose the type of systematic form (6 numbers, 7 numbers, 8 numbers, 9 numbers, 10 numbers) you wish to play. Should you choose 6 numbers, a total of 6 lines will be generated from the numbers you choose in the numbered grid. Should you choose 10 numbers a total of 252 lines will be generated; each line made up of a different combination of your lucky numbers.
