The EuroMillions jackpot has already been won six times since the start of 2022, with players from France (2), the UK, Ireland, Portugal and Spain snapping a combined €360 million. Their good fortune has stopped the top prize from powering towards its upper limits, but now another special draw is on the horizon with the announcement of April’s Superdraw.
The jackpot will be boosted to €130 million even if it continues to be won regularly before 29th April. If it rolls over on the night of the Superdraw, it will keep growing until it is won.
There is even a possibility that it could go on to break the record for the biggest jackpot of all time. In October last year, a player from French Polynesia won €220 million following a Superdraw a few weeks earlier. That left the jackpot cap at €230 million.
The only Superdraw to take place so far this year was won on the night by a UK ticket holder. They matched all the numbers on 4th February to win £109 million (€130 million), and came forward to claim the money a few days later.
There has only ever been one other Superdraw in April. It happened in 2018, when the jackpot rolled over just once before being won. Again it was a UK player who pocketed the cash, snapping up £121 million.
France is currently ranked top of the table for the countries that have produced the most jackpot winners, with 118 since EuroMillions started in 2004. The only two other nations that participated in that very first draw, the UK and Spain, are close behind with 115 and 114 winners respectively.
The six other countries that take part in EuroMillions did not join the game until later in 2004. They have all had multiple winners too, and the next multimillion-Euro prize could end up going to any corner of the continent. Make sure to take part in the Superdraw to give yourself a chance of winning.
