EuroMillions Superdraws are basically regular EuroMillions draws, with a twist in the form of a guaranteed €100 million jackpot. Other than the different starting jackpot amount, Superdraws are similar to regular EuroMillions draws in all respects. You pick the same amount of regular numbers, five, and complete your set with two Lucky Stars – and you need to match all seven numbers to win the jackpot. If no one wins the jackpot, it keeps rolling over, increasing in size, until someone wins or until it reaches the maximum payout ceiling of €190 million.

The Superdraw edition of October 2014 was a memorable one: the jackpot rolled over an incredible six times, all the way to the maximum jackpot of €190 million, before it was finally pocketed by an anonymous Portuguese winner on October 24th. In the two following years, the EuroMillions jackpot reaches fantastic heights, but didn’t manage to go all the way to the jackpot cap of €190 million. We’re keeping our hopes up for it to happen in 2017!
In 2014, one of the scheduled Superdraws was cancelled due to the fact that the EuroMillions jackpot had already climbed to an amount larger than the starting Superdraw jackpot of €100 million, which took away the wind of excitement from under the Superdraw’s wings. This can happen, but we hope it doesn’t happen to often!
2016 brought us only one Superdraw, but it was a very special one. The draw on September 30 was the first ever Superdraw to offer a guaranteed €130 million jackpot! It rose to €168 million before it was finally won by a player from Belgium.
Keep you eyes and ears open for the announcement of the next Superdraw, which we’re expecting to take place in the first half of 2017!
