In every EuroMillions draw the jackpot is worth a minimum of €15 million but when a special EuroMillions Superdraw takes place, the minimum jackpot increases to €100 million. EuroMillions Superdraws are often held as a way to celebrate a certain event and offer a guaranteed jackpot of €100 million, equating to £80 million depending on the exchange rate, regardless of whether the top prize is won in the preceding draw.
A Superdraw jackpot is made up of funds from the EuroMillions Reserve Fund. For each EuroMillions draw, a total of 8.6% of the Common Prize Fund is added to the Reserve Fund and is used for special draws or to increase the value of the jackpot in a normal EuroMillions draw.
How Superdraws Work
The same rules apply for a Superdraw as they would for a regular EuroMillions draw, the only difference is that the minimum jackpot is increased. Superdraw tickets are purchased in the same way that standard EuroMillions tickets are, with players selecting five main numbers from 1 to 50 and two Lucky Stars from 1 to 11.
In the event that no ticket holder matches all seven numbers drawn to win the Superdraw jackpot, the top prize will roll over to the following draw. This will happen until a player is able to match all seven numbers drawn or if the jackpot reaches the cap of €190 million. Should this happen, the jackpot can stay at €190 million for a maximum of two draws and, if there is still no top prize winner after the second draw, the jackpot prize will roll down and be shared between players in the next winning prize tier.
