What is the EuroMillions Superdraw?
So you might be asking yourself; what is the difference between the EuroMillions Superdraw and the regular EuroMillions draw?

When is the next EuroMillions Superdraw taking place?
Superdraws work under the same regulations as regular draws and the sole difference is the size of the ensured jackpot. If no player wins the jackpot, the top prize will roll over to the following draw. Like a regular draw, if there are no top prize winners then the jackpot will continuously roll until it gets to the jackpot cap.
The following EuroMillions Superdraw is due to occur on Friday 15th September 2017, and the jackpot is guaranteed to be EUR130 million (approximately ₤ 115 million depending upon the currency exchange rate).
If the Superdraw jackpot is not won on the night, it will constantly roll over until somebody matches all five primary numbers and each Lucky Stars or until it reaches the jackpot cap of EUR190 million (sterling value will vary accordinged to current currency exchange rate).
History of the EuroMillions Superdraw
The first EuroMillions ever took place in February 2004, and at the time only France, Spain, and the United Kingdom took part. Once the EuroMillions Superdraw was introduced on 9 February 2007 there were nine participating countries. The first Superdraw offered a starting jackpot of €100 million and was won in its entirety by an anonymous player based in Belgium.
One of the biggest Superdraws ever took place on 3 October 2014; the draw rolled over a total of six times, and was to be the first EuroMillions Superdraw to reach the jackpot cap of €190 million. It was won on 24th October by a single ticket purchased in Portugal.
A EuroMillions Superdraw that took place on the 6 June 2014 was the first to be superseded by the normal EuroMillions jackpot, which had been accumulating prior to the draw. An anonymous player in Spain won a whopping €137 million prize in a draw that took place 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.

During the year, 8.6% of the total revenue from all Euromillions ticket sales accumulate in a Common Prize Fund and is used to fund Superdraw jackpots. The Superdraw jackpots roll over until the prize is won, giving lotto players more opportunities to win, and win big!
Superdraws follow standard EuroMillions rules. If the jackpot isn’t won it continues to roll over to subsequent draws until it reaches the €190 million jackpot cap.

Superdraw Record Prizes
The jackpot cap of the EuroMillions Superdraw is set at €190 million, consequently the jackpot is limited to that amount. Yet jackpot cap has been reached only once in the history of the Superdraw.
This happened in October of 2014 when the jackpot rolled over six times to reach the €190 million cap. One lucky ticket purchaser in Portugal took the entire jackpot.
The €190 million jackpot cap was also reached in August 2012 and was shared by two lucky tickets.
