September Superdraw fever will be breaking out any time now that a €130 million guaranteed jackpot game has been announced to take place on Friday 26 September, 2008. If the EuroMillions jackpot isn’t won outright, it will be rolled down to the next highest prize level that does have winners, so whatever happens, €130 million must be won.
In September 2007 a guaranteed superdraw jackpot rolled down to those players matching five main numbers and one lucky star, making 14 winners €9.8 million richer. And in February 2008 a superdraw to celebrate the fourth birthday of the EuroMillions lottery also rolled down to the second tier prize level, giving 16 winners more than €8.6 million each.
As you can see, you don’t necessary have to match all five main numbers and both Lucky Star numbers to walk away from a guaranteed superdraw as a millionaire! And that’s what makes EuroMillions superdraws so exciting.
Although the €130 million guaranteed jackpot offered by the September Superdraw will be €53 million less than the biggest EuroMillions jackpot ever, it will be larger than the biggest win going to an individual ticket-holder. That record currently belongs to Delores McNamara of Ireland, who won €115.6 million on 31 July, 2005.
Will the next September superdraw result in a single winner beating the record of Delores McNamara? Will several lucky winners share the jackpot? Or will the superdraw jackpot once again be rolled down to second-tier prize winners? We won’t know the answers to any of these questions until the draw has taken place on Friday 26 September, so buy your tickets, hold on tight and maybe you will be one of the lucky ones who finds out before anyone else!
