EuroMillions Jackpot Soars After Superdraw Rollover

EuroMillions Jackpot Soars After Superdraw Rollover

The EuroMillions Superdraw on Friday night ended in a rollover, but there were millions of winning tickets across the other prize categories. The result sets up an even larger jackpot for the next draw, and could even pave the way for another record in the coming weeks.

EuroMillions Superdraw Numbers

The jackpot was increased to €130 million for the Superdraw on 24th September, leading to strong ticket sales in all nine participating counties. Fans turned their attention towards Paris for the eagerly-awaited draw, and the winning numbers were revealed to be 2, 12, 20, 27 and 41, with Lucky Stars 10 and 12.

Nobody was able to match the full set of winning numbers, but it was still a special evening for the players who came close. Take a look at the EuroMillions Results page to find out the biggest payouts, a full prize breakdown for each nation and details of the Millionaire Maker draw.

Super Jackpot events only happen every few months. They are scheduled when there is enough money in the Reserve Fund to guarantee a nine-figure jackpot, so the top prize will definitely be offered even if someone has just won three days earlier on the Tuesday. 

Every EuroMillions player dreams of winning a Superdraw, but a rollover on the night creates even more excitement.

Superdraw Statistics

> Friday’s Superdraw was the 32nd event of its kind in EuroMillions history.

> 10 Super Jackpots have been won on the night, including three since the start of 2020.

> The last two Superdraws that rolled over went on to produce record-breaking jackpots.

What Happens Now?

When a Superdraw isn’t won, the jackpot rolls over just as it does for a regular draw. That means the entire €130 million jackpot from Friday will be carried forward. It will also be topped up with money raised from ticket sales for Tuesday’s draw, pushing the value up considerably.

The jackpot can keep growing until it is won, for now. However, there is a Jackpot Cap in place to prevent it from rolling over indefinitely. This maximum limit is currently set at €220 million.

Once the top prize reaches its cap, the jackpot can only stay at that level for a maximum of four draws. While it’s fixed at this amount, additional funds that would normally increase the jackpot are instead allocated to the Match 5 + 1 Lucky Star prize category. In the fifth draw at the cap, the jackpot must be won so it will be split between players in the second tier if no tickets match all the numbers.

It only takes a few rollovers for the jackpot to soar from €130 million all the way past €200 million so it could be that another record payout beckons.

The previous record came only a few months ago after a Superdraw in February, when the jackpot cap was hit just two and a half weeks later. The limit at the time was €210 million and in the end the whole jackpot went to a single ticket holder from Switzerland.

A player from France had previously scooped €200 million in December 2020 after a Superdraw a couple of weeks earlier.

Luckiest EuroMillions Countries

While Switzerland can currently boast the game’s biggest-ever winner, it is the UK that has had the most jackpot wins. The UK has been the home of 114 winners, putting it just ahead of France and Spain in the list of the most successful countries. There was also a UK winner of the last Superdraw jackpot in June.

All nine nations have had winners, though, and your chances of scooping the jackpot remain exactly the same regardless of where you play. The only way to boost your odds is to purchase more entries.

You can’t win if you don’t take part, though, and there’s one of the biggest jackpots of the year to aim for in the next draw. Whether the top prize gets won next time or climbs up to its maximum amount, it promises to be a thrilling run as long as it lasts.

You can take part online now for your chance to become the next big winner, or visit an authorised retailer in one of the participating countries.
