For many of us out there, we await a new EuroMillions Superdraw with impatience. Rather than having to wait for a giant rollover jackpot, the Superdraw pumps up the jackpot by using booster funds. The Superdraw jackpot generally starts off at €100 million, which is enough to get everybody excited. So, how does it work, and when will the next Superdraw take place?
How the Superdraw Works
The only difference between a Superdraw and a regular EuroMillions jackpot is the size of the prize. All the rules are exactly the same, the jackpot is simply boosted to make the draw a little (or a lot!) more special. You may be asking where does all this extra money come from? Well, there is a special prize pool called the EuroMillions booster fund which receives just under 5% of the prize pool during regular draws. This fund builds up over time and eventually money from this pot is used to boost the Superdraw jackpot. In recent years the Superdraw has had a jackpot of €100 million, although it can then roll over just as a normal EuroMillions prize would if it was not won. The biggest Superdraw win was €190 million from a Portuguese punter in October 2014, after the Superdraw rolled over 6 times.
When is the Next Superdraw?
The first Superdraw took place in 2007, and in total there have been 18 EuroMillions Superdraws in total. There is no fixed number of Superdraws per year, for example there were three in 2015 but only one in 2016. Half way through 2017 and we are still waiting for the first Superdraw of the year. The good news is that we won’t have to wait too much longer, because the next EuroMillions Superdraw will happen on the 30th of September 2017. If you are worried about forgetting the date, then that’s where Lottoland can help. When you place a EuroMillions bet with Lottoland you can select the minimum jackpot for you to bet on. If you select €100 million then you will automatically place a bet on any EuroMillions jackpot of that amount or higher. Just remember to keep your Lottoland balance topped up and then you can rest assured that you will enter any massive EuroMillions rollovers or Superdraws exceeding €100 million. And of course at Lottoland, a line bet still costs just £2!
But if you prefer to make a note on your phone or in your diary, September 30th is the due date for the next EuroMillions Superdraw!
