CAN SPAIN WIN ANOTHER EUROMILLIONS SUPERDRAW?
The clock is counting down to the next EuroMillions Superdraw that takes place on Friday March 6. There’s a guaranteed jackpot of €100m and is the first Superdraw since October 2014. 14 Superdraws have seen the jackpot won on just four occasions in the initial draw. The last two Superdraw Jackpot winning tickets were both sold in Spain, so can they make it a hat-trick next month?
The EuroMillions Superdraw was introduced in 2007 with a guaranteed €100m jackpot. In order to achieve the €100m figure, money is taken from the EuroMillions Reserve Fund. The first ever Superdraw took place on February 9, 2007 and was won by a player from Belgium who purchased his winning EuroMillions ticket from a newspaper shop in Tienen.
The next three EuroMillions Superdraws failed to produce any winners from the initial draw. It wasn’t until March 2009 that a Superdraw was to see the jackpot won at the first time of asking. Two tickets shared the €100m jackpot, one sold in Austria and the other in France.
2009 certainly proved to be a lucky year for French EuroMillions players as the second Superdraw of the year held in September saw a syndicate of 15 players share the jackpot, each winning just over €6m, The winning EuroMillions syndicate members came from Venelles, a small French village with a population of just 8000.
Recent years have seen Spain win many a football tournament and they are pretty hot when it comes to winning EuroMillions Superdraws too. In September 2012, Montserrat Mutgé from Barcelona made it a great night for Spain when she won the EuroMillions Superdraw.
The following year the Spanish nation was celebrating again when they hit the EuroMillions Superdraw jackpot for the second year in a row. This time it was an anonymous player from Alunecar in the province of Granada who matched the five main numbers and the two Lucky Stars to win the €100m jackpot.
Two EuroMillions Superdraws were held last year but produced no winners from the initial draw. However following subsequent rollovers a winner from Portugal took home £149 million (€190 million) from the most recent October 2014 Superdraw, while it was a UK ticket holder who capitalised on the March 2014 Superdraw rolling over to bag themselves £107 million (€137 million).
