Posted on July 30th, 2009

Mamma mia! Things are hotting up in Italy as the national SuperEnalotto rolls over again and the jackpot has hit €109.9 million euros. Ticket sales have gone through the roof as people pile in to try and win the World´s Largest Lotto Jackpot (that´s current). The enormous prize pool is attracting punters like bees to honey. Most Italian punters are spending around 2 euros, which means that if it rolls over again, it could becoame the largest lotto jackpot ever seen on the planet.

The SuperEnalotto is run by a privatecompany called the Sisal SpA company. The minimum ticket buy is 1 euro – you need to correctly predict 6 numbers to have a chance of winning the life changing sum.

In 2009 alone, players has fluttered over 1.6 billion euros on the game, spending on average just under €3 each.

The latest jackpot is the largest in the history of the game which has been operating for over ten years. €100 million was paid out in October 2008.

This latest rollover is still some way short of the world record, which the U.S.A.’s Powerball jackpot of $365 million that was won in February 2006 by 8 players from Nebraska.

The European lotto win record jackpot is 126 million euros which was won in Spain in a Euro Millions game earlier this year in Spain.

You can also pick a “SuperStar” – not a bonus ball but one that can win a  consolation prize. if you do not want to choose you own numbers you can pick up a play card which already has preselected numbers on it (a bit like a lucky dip).
