EuroMillions Superdraw - Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About This Super Jackpot


What exactly is the difference between the EuroMillions Superdraw and the regular EuroMillions draw? Simply put – the EuroMillions Superdraw replaces the regularly scheduled EuroMillion lottery draw but offers a higher guaranteed jackpot prize.

The EuroMillions Superdraw (also known as Megadraws in Ireland & Super Jackpots in the UK) is a special lottery event organised periodically to guarantees massive nine-figure jackpots.

EuroMillions Superdraw operates under the same rules as regular draws. The only difference being the size of the guaranteed jackpot.

To win the EuroMillions you simply need to match all five primary numbers and each Lucky Star. As well as selecting five main numbers between 1 & 50, EuroMillions lottery players also choose two extra numbers. These extra numbers are called the Lucky Stars, and the numbers span from 1 to 12

If there’s no lucky lottery player who wins the jackpot, the main prize will roll over to the following draw. Just like regular draws, if nobody wins the main prize the jackpot rolls over until it reaches the jackpot cap of €190 million.

What happens if the EuroMillions Jackpot is not won on the night?

If the EuroMillions Superdraw jackpot is not won, it will roll over until either the jackpot cap of €190 million is reached or somebody matches all five primary numbers.


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.

Today, with international online lottery agents like Giant Lottos, players from every country on the planet enter and enjoy the EuroMillions Superdraw excitement.

A history of winnings

One of the biggest draws to ever took place was won on 24th October by a single ticket purchased in Portugal. To reach this total it took a EuroMillions Superdraw on the 3 October 2014 to rolled over a total of six times. The
24th October draw was to be the first EuroMillions Superdraw to reach the jackpot cap of €190 million.

Interestingly the EuroMillions Superdraw that took place on the 6 June 2014 was the first to be superseded by the normal EuroMillions jackpot, which had been accumulating prior to the draw.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 EuroMillions Superdraw lottery winners have elected to remain anonymous… However, there are two exceptions on record and both 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.
