What is a Superdraw?
Superdraws are special events which take place from time to time throughout the year and offer guaranteed nine-figure jackpots. It does not matter how high the jackpot was in the previous draw or whether the top prize was won or not - the jackpot will be worth the advertised amount.
Where does the extra money come from?
The additional funds used to increase the jackpot come from the EuroMillions Booster Fund, a special pot which receives 4.8% of the Common Prize Fund from each regular EuroMillions draw. The Booster Fund is in place primarily to ensure that each EuroMillions draw is able to offer a minimum jackpot of €17 million, but it can then also be used to fund Superdraws when there are excess funds available.
Can the jackpot roll over?
Yes. If the Superdraw jackpot is not won on the night, it will roll over to the next draw and then continue to increase until someone matches all five main numbers and both Lucky Stars, or it reaches the jackpot cap of €190 million. If the top prize reaches €190 million, it can stay at this level for four draws but then must be won in the fifth draw. If nobody matches the full winning line, the money will roll down to be shared between players in the next winning tier.
What happened in the last Superdraw?
The last Superdraw took place on Friday 15th September 2017. The jackpot was not won on the night, and it did keep rolling over until it reached the €190 million cap. A player from Spain ended up pocketing the full amount, to become the joint-biggest winner in EuroMillions history. Go to the Superdraws page to find out more.
