Superdraws only take place a few times a year and offer guaranteed nine-figure prizes. It would normally take several rollovers to create a jackpot worth €130 million.
However, when a Superdraw is scheduled it does not matter if there has just been a winner - the prize will be pushed up to the advertised amount.
If there’s no winner in a Superdraw, the jackpot can roll over and continue to climb as usual. It could even go on to reach its cap of €230 million, setting a new EuroMillions record in the process.
Big Winners in 2022
It has already been a year of big winners, with five different countries celebrating jackpot success since the start of 2022 - France, Ireland, Portugal, Spain and the UK.
The biggest payout of the year went to UK couple Joe and Jess Thwaite, who landed £184 million (€215 million). The Thwaites’ win came after 14 rollovers - a sequence of draws spanning from 22nd March until they matched all the numbers on 10th May.
Another Superdraw was meant to go ahead on 29th April, but the jackpot had already surpassed €130 million by that point so it was effectively postponed.
A UK player also won the jackpot in the first Superdraw of the year on 4th February, coming forward anonymously to claim the prize rather than going public like the Thwaites.
France and the UK have both had three jackpot winners this year. France has also been the scene of more jackpot wins than anywhere else since EuroMillions started, including the largest of all time.
How to Win the Superdraw Jackpot
To win the Superdraw jackpot on 17th June, you’ll need to match all five main numbers and both Lucky Stars. The Thwaites won their prize with a Lucky Dip, but there are a variety of techniques you could use when choosing your numbers.
If you want to go with a random selection, the Number Generator will give you a set with a single tap. Alternatively, you could study the statistics and base your picks on the most common, or most overdue, numbers.
Regardless of your strategy, you’ve got a chance of winning as long as you are in the draw. Take part now and allow yourself to dream about what you would do with a €130 million windfall.
