There are many things that make Euromillions one of the most exciting lottery games in the world, but lotto aficionados are always more inclined to play it every time a Superdraw takes place. These special draws guarantee a ground-breaking €100.000.000 windfall and if you’re not yet familiar with the way they operate, you’re about to find out what makes them the most anticipated lotto event on the continent.
The first Superdraw took place back in 2007, meaning the one this Friday night will symbolically mark tenth anniversary of this amazing tradition. Every time these draws take place Euromillions jackpot increases to the guaranteed amount of €100.000.000, and if the prize isn’t won right away it just keeps getting bigger. In case of this game, there’s a jackpot cap of €190.000.000, and if no one is able to correctly guess all the winning numbers in several draws the top prize keeps growing until reaching that sum. If nobody manages to match the winning combination in the fourth draw after the cap is reached, the jackpot is split between the players in the highest winning tier.
Many Euromillions records were broken in the drawings following the Superdraw and it’s not difficult to see why. Every time jackpot increases, more players become interested in trying their luck with this game, but their odds still stay the same and it takes some time before someone manages to match all the winning numbers. The last time Superdraw took place, the jackpot wasn’t won right away, but three draws later when one fortunate punter from Belgium took home a sensational €168.000.000 windfall, which was also the largest Euromillions prize scooped last year.
