Two Monster Jackpots in Two Days
8th October 2010 12:06 AM
The next two days could be the biggest of the year for lottery players, and that’s because there are two monster jackpots on offer from two of the biggest lottery games in Europe. The EuroMillions game on Friday 8 October has a rollover Mega Jackpot of €129,000,000 (around £112,000,000) and Italy’s SuperEnalotto game on Saturday 9 October has a multi-rollover jackpot of €158,100,000 (around £137,200,000) to play for. Add in the fact that EuroMillions players in the UK also get a shot at winning a £1,000,000 Millionaire Raffle prize with every ticket that they purchase and there are jackpot opportunities galore!
Both the EuroMillions and SuperEnalotto game might both currently have nine figure jackpots up for grabs, but the odds of winning the jackpot in each game are quite different. The odds of winning the EuroMillions jackpot (by matching 5 main numbers from the range 1 to 50 and 2 Lucky Star numbers from the range 1 to 9) are 1 in 76,275,360. That might sound quite challenging, but the odds of winning the SuperEnalotto jackpot (by matching 6 main numbers from the range 1 to 90) are 1 in 622,614,630, which makes winning the EuroMillions jackpot look a whole lot easier!
Almost anyone in the world (who is of legal age) can play both the EuroMillions and SuperEnalotto games by purchasing their tickets online. Tickets bought online have the same odds of winning as those bought from offline retailers, but buying online is obviously a lot more convenient. It also has the additional advantage of making it impossible to lose your tickets!
EuroMillions players will of course be most keen to play EuroMillions online, but grabbing a ticket or two for the SuperEnalotto draw on Saturday could also be extremely worthwhile. Enter your luckiest numbers today and good luck!
