The EuroMillions Superdraw is a special jackpot draw which is usually held to honour or celebrate certain occasions.
We have seen several of these since the EuroMillions began in 2004, with past examples of when they have taken place including for EuroMillions anniversaries and when there has been a change in the format of the game.
There are, however no particular parameters set for when Superdraws can be held and they can happen at any time.
A EuroMillions Superdraw involves the regular jackpot increasing to a minimum of €100 million, which is roughly £80 million depending on the exchange rate at the time. Due to this it is usually only done when there is enough prize fund money in order to make the elevated jackpot possible. As mentioned before, there is no set pattern of when they take place but there are usually two Superdraws each year.
The way the increasing of the jackpot works is that funds are added to the existing EuroMillions jackpot at the time. So for example if the jackpot was at £40 million, then the Superdraw fund would add another £40 million to take the jackpot to £80
million (€100 million). Superdraw jackpots can be higher though, with a past example being one which reached as high as £159 million (€190 million). As with any other draw, the Superdraw can keep rolling over to the next week if it is not won, until it reaches the jackpot cap.
The date for the next EuroMillions Superdraw has been confirmed for Friday 6th November 2015. If you want to be in with a chance of winning, don’t forget to purchase your EuroMillions tickets for the next Superdraw with lottery24.com.
