For any players unfamiliar with Superdraws, they take the same format as regular EuroMillions draws with the exception of offering an enhanced guaranteed jackpot value. If no player matches all seven numbers drawn in the Superdraw then the supersized jackpot will roll over to the following draw. As with regular draws, ticket sales will boost the jackpot amount for subsequent draws – subject to the jackpot cap - until a player successfully matches the five main numbers and two Lucky Stars required to win the top prize.
The first Superdraw of the year was held on 7th March but with no jackpot winners in the draw, the top prize rolled over twice, growing in size with each rollover, before UK player Neil Trotter scooped the colossal £107 million (€129 million) jackpot on 14th March. Trotter, a car mechanic from South London, revealed after claiming his prize that his initial plans were to buy a house with a garage big enough to accommodate a fleet of luxury supercars.
For anyone hoping to follow in Trotter’s footsteps, make sure you put the date for the upcoming Superdraw in your diary. Tickets for the EuroMillions Superdraw are not yet on sale but WorldLottery.net will keep you updated as the draw approaches.
*EuroMillions Superdraws offer a guaranteed jackpot of €100 million which, based upon current exchange rates, is approximately £80 million.
