Commonly known as The Italian Lotto, the SuperEnaLotto is one of the biggest lotteries in the world. It has massive jackpots and is among the lotteries with the lowest odds. It has been drawn every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday at 8:00 pm in Italy since December 1997.
The draw picks six winning numbers from a pot of 90. Players with all six numbers win the jackpot. There is also a categorization of five combinations that can win players second place prizes. Those who have a number drawn as the 'jolly number' get bigger second-place prizes. These extras make the SuperEnaLotto very popular worldwide.
The lottery took over from the EnaLotto in 1997. The former had existed in the country since the 1950s. It paid out the biggest jackpot of $248 million in 2010 which went out to 70 winners. The lotto has also paid $233.8 million as recently as 2019. A single-ticket jackpot of $205 million was paid out in 2009.
