Would you believe that some of Hollywood’s biggest stars prefer playing the Italian SuperEnaLotto as opposed to their own American USA Powerball and Mega Millions lotteries? Let’s take a look at some of the American celebrities who are fans of the SuperEnaLotto!
Paris Hilton is the great-grand daughter of multimillionaire hotel tycoon Barron Hilton. Despite being the heiress of a worldwide hotel empire, Hilton also starred in the reality show “The Simple Life”. I guess that qualifies her as a celebrity. In 2008, Paris Hilton was spotted buying 1500 SuperEnaLotto tickets for the €30.7 Million jackpot on offer at the time. You would think she would have enough money, right? Hilton has stated that she likes the SuperEnaLotto due to it’s prize structure and says that if she hits the jackpot, she will donate 10% of the win to charity.
British actress and model Elizabeth Hurley bought 500 tickets for the SuperEnaLotto in 2010 when the jackpot was worth €117 Million. Hurley stated that if she won the SuperEnaLotto jackpot then she planned to donate a large portion of her winnings to support those affected by the earthquake in Haiti.
American pop queen Madonna plays the SuperEnaLotto regularly, not just to win, but also to support the lottery organisers. Madonna’s Italian roots definitely add to her love for the SuperEnaLotto. The superstar purchased 100 SuperEnaLotto tickets during her 2012 world tour and although she didn’t hit the jackpot, she did win the second category prize winning € 120,000. Madonna used her winnings to build a school in an impoverished part of Malawi in Southern Africa.
Hollywood megastar George Clooney follows in the footsteps of actress Elizabeth Hurley by playing the €117 million SuperEnaLotto in 2010 hoping to win a prize to help out the victims of the earthquake disaster in Haiti.
It’s a simple answer really, the stars play to win the jackpot, to help good causes and also to improve their image amongst their fans. The celebs that play are not interested in winning the runner-up prizes, nope, they’re chasing the jackpot. The stars buy hundreds of tickets at a time to increase their chances of being a jackpot winner! There’s other reasons as well which make the SuperEnaLotto a favourite amongst celebrities including:
