Guaranteed €130 Million Jackpot
The EuroMillions Superdraw has been announced a few weeks before it takes place and the advertised jackpot is guaranteed to be put up for grabs, so you can plan your strategy now and make sure you don’t miss out on the opportunity to become one of the game’s largest winners.
The jackpot is guaranteed because Superdraws work slightly differently to ordinary draws. Whereas it normally takes an extended sequence of rollovers to create a nine-figure jackpot, the money for Superdraws comes from the Reserve Fund.
A percentage of the prize fund goes to the Reserve Fund in every draw, so special promotions such as Superdraws can be arranged when there is enough money in the pot. It doesn’t matter if the jackpot is much lower in the run-up to 20th November, or even if it is won in the draw immediately beforehand - the top prize will be boosted to €130 million.
The Reserve Fund has received a higher percentage of the prize pot since February, so the EuroMillions members have been able to schedule even more Superdraws. The upcoming event will be the fourth of its kind in 2020 - no other year has ever had so many!
Superdraw Winners in 2020
Two of the three Superdraws this year have seen the jackpot won on the night. A Spanish participant landed €130 million on 7th February, while another player - also from Spain - scooped the same amount in the most recent Superdraw on 25th September.
In between those wins, there was a Superdraw on 3rd July which did roll over. However, the jackpot was won in the very next draw. Again it was Spain which proved to be the lucky location, with a ticket holder from Valladolid snapping up €144 million.
The jackpot can keep growing from a Superdraw all the way until it reaches its €200 million cap. The top prize has not yet hit this amount - the maximum was €190 million prior to February - but it could be that the next Superdraw sets up a new record.
There has never been a Superdraw held so late in the year, so this one could even lead to one of the biggest jackpots in history being offered just before Christmas.
It promises to be an exciting time for players in all nine participating countries, with the potential for a huge win to round off 2020. Don’t forget to take part to give yourself a chance, and check the EuroMillions Results straight after the Superdraw to see if you have won.
