The EuroMillions Superdraw is a huge event in the European lottery calendar, where a special draw takes place to offer an impressive jackpot prize worth an incredible £85/€100 million. These unique draws are often held to celebrate a certain memorable occasion, for example the anniversary of the EuroMillions – and with such a colossal amount of money to play for, it’s worth keeping an eye on the lottery news for Superdraw dates in the hope of becoming Europe’s next multi-millionaire!
The first ever Euro Millions Superdraw took place on February 9th 2007, approximately three years after the EuroMillions held its first lottery game. Introducing a bumper jackpot prize of £85/€100 million, this was a significant increase from the usual EuroMillions minimum jackpot of £13/€15 million. Since 2007 the Euromillions Lottery has offered two special draws, this is considered a massive deal amongst lottery players – with ticket sales significantly higher in order to compete for the jackpot prize.
However, before lottery fans get too excited about this staggering multi-million prize, it is important to note that it is not in fact added to the existing prize pot - but is increased to reach the £85/€100 million mark. Should any previous jackpot leading up to the Superdraw continue to roll over, then the jackpot prize is simply bumped up to £85/€100 million.
As the EuroMillions Superdraw is such a rarity, it’s worth playing for – especially when there’s a mega amount of millions up for grabs! Played in exactly the same way as the standard EuroMillions lottery, the lucky player needs just five main balls and two Lucky Stars to match the numbers drawn – but if that isn’t enough to convince you to get your winning ticket, why not take a look at our EuroMillions Results for details of the previous Superdraw winners.
Here is a little information from three of the previous Superdraw results; one for each of the last three years.
- 10 May 2011 – One lucky ticket holder from Spain won the Superdraw jackpot after it rolled over to £105.8/€121 million;
- 5 February 2010 – Whilst the jackpot prize went unclaimed, it rolled over the following week to reach £113/€129.8 million – which was won by a player from the UK;
- 18 September 2009 – Fifteen players based in France won the EuroMillions Superdraw, taking home £89/€100 million!
So for a super win worth drawing attention to, make sure you prepare for the next EuroMillions Superdraw!
