The Famous SuperEnalotto – Steeped in Italian Lottery History

Isn’t it grand? The history of the Italian SuperEnalotto stretches all the way back too the 1950s when it was simply called “Enalotto”. On 3 December 1997 the Enalotto was reincarnated by Italian lottery operator SISAL to become SuperEnalotto.

Three times a week, theLotter processes countless online requests for official SuperEnalotto lottery tickets in its office in Italy!

Italian SuperEnalotto Draw Schedule

SuperEnalotto draws take place every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday at 20:00 local time. 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 – jackpots which can roll over without hitting a maximum, a cap.

Another reason to always keep a close eye on the SuperEnalotto results!

How Do I Play & Win the Italy SuperEnalotto Online?

The SuperEnalotto is a pick 6 game which requires you to select your numbers from a pool of 90.

The jackpot winners matches 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 so called Jolly number - a bonus ball!

The Italian national lottery's flagship game offers six prize categories: the jackpot, a second prize and four more lower prize categories. Players can win prizes by matching a minimum of 3 numbers. The SuperEnalotto SuperStar (a sister game) even offers 14 prize divisions!

What is the SuperEnalotto Record?

The starting jackpot in the SuperEnalotto is a handsome €1,300,000, but the Italian lotto is famed for producing huge jackpots after lengthy rollover cycles. A good example of such a cycle created the biggest-ever SuperEnalotto jackpot – a jaw-dropping €177.7 million. This SuperEnalotto jackpot was scooped up in October 2010 after Italy’s favourite lotto had been rolling over for nearly nine months – a world rollover record!

The staggering amounts was in fact won by a SuperEnalotto Syndicate which consisted of 70 participants. At theLotter we offer syndicates for the SuperEnalotto as well, alongside various other ticketing options.

What is the SuperStar Lottery? Is the Italian SuperStar the Same Game 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 €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! For more information about the way SuperStar differs from the standard SuperEnalotto game format, check out our dedicated page with information about the Italian SuperStar.

What is the SuperEnalotto Jolly?

The Jolly ball is a bonus number that decrees the above mentioned second prize, i.e. the 5+1 prize. The Jolly is part and parcel to all Italian lottery draws – it is always drawn alongside the main balls. Whilst you do not have to match the Jolly in order to win the jackpot, the Italian Lotto Jolly ball is intended for triumphing in the amazing second prize category.

What Are the SuperEnalotto Jackpot Winning Odds?

The odds of you winning the SuperEnalotto are 622,614,630 to 1. Whilst SuperEnalotto's winning odds are relatively steep compared to some other national lotteries, it is worth noting that it is exactly for this very reason that the SuperEnalotto regularly offers some of the highest jackpots in Europe and indeed the world.
