EuroMillions Superdraw: the key details

Draw time: 20:45 CET
Jackpot: € 100 million

What is the EuroMillions Superdraw?

A few times every year, the EuroMillions lottery has its jackpot fund boosted to € 100 million – a considerable increase on the game’s usual minimum jackpot of € 17 million. These special events are known as Superdraws, and they’re famed for bringing some of the biggest jackpots in the world to Europe.

How is the Superdraw played?

Superdraws are just like any other EuroMillions draw, with exactly the same rules, odds and numbers. To recap, that means players must:

  • Choose five regular numbers from 1 to 50
  • Choose two Lucky Star numbers from 1 to 12

To win the € 100 million jackpot, you’ll need to match all five regular numbers and both Lucky Stars correctly. If more than one player hits a jackpot combination, the jackpot fund is shared – though it’s likelier that a single ticket-holder will win the whole lot.

What’s the entry deadline?

Just like a regular Friday night EuroMillions draw, the Superdraw will be held at 21:00 CET in Paris. The deadline for entries via PlayEuroLotto is 17:00 CET. We advise purchasing a ticket early to ensure you don’t miss out on this amazing event.

How much does it cost to enter?

PlayEuroLotto uses flexible pricing in order to offer players the best possible prices according to our operating costs, which are sometimes higher in the event of a very popular draw. Our EuroMillions tickets are priced from as little as € 3,00 per line.

Who can play?

We can provide Superdraw entry for any registered PlayEuroLotto member. Age and location restrictions apply.

Where does the extra jackpot money come from?

Bumping the jackpot fund up to € 100 million can sometimes require the EuroMillions jackpot to rise by an eye-watering € 87 million from one draw to the next. That’s a lot of extra prize money! EuroMillions pays for its occasional Superdraws using a slice of its ticket revenue from regular draws throughout the year.

Is there usually a jackpot winner in EuroMillions Superdraws?

A relatively high percentage of Superdraws result in a jackpot win. Over the last decade we’ve seen a significant number of € 100 million Superdraw winners, along with a handful of others who won € 130 million in extra-special Superdraws. Check out our article on the biggest EuroMillions Superdraw winners for further detail.

What happens if no-one wins the jackpot?

Despite the fact that millions of people will be buying extra EuroMillions tickets to increase their chances of winning the Superdraw prize, there’s no guarantee that the jackpot will be won on this occasion. If nobody chooses a jackpot-winning number combination, the prize fund rolls over to the next draw. Some of the biggest EuroMillions jackpots ever have resulted from Superdraw rollovers.

Here’s what makes Superdraws truly special

If you’re a regular PlayEuroLotto player, you’ll know that whilst nine-figure jackpots are a rarity in European games, they are offered fairly regularly by our American lotteries, Powerball and MegaMillions.

But there’s a big difference here: a EuroMillions Superdraw offers a far higher chance of winning, relative to your ticket cost, than Powerball and MegaMillions. American lotteries pay for their massive jackpots by using game setups that make it harder to win the top prize, whereas EuroMillions Superdraw jackpots are paid for with funds accrued over a number of months.

Simply put, the EuroMillions Superdraw is one of the best chances you’ll ever have of winning a nine-figure jackpot.
