September’s Superdraw follows on from similar events in March and June and is guaranteed to put up the advertised amount even if the jackpot is won in the preceding draw.
You don’t have to wait for a long run of rollovers to build up a nine-figure jackpot. Instead, the money will come from the Reserve Fund - a type of booster pot that makes up a small percentage of the total prize fund and is used for special promotions.
All you need to do is mark the date of the Superdraw on your calendar and prepare your strategy. It may be that you have a favourite set of numbers, or perhaps you want to generate a random selection. Alternatively, analyse the statistics to see the latest trends.
The Superdraw itself will work exactly like any other draw, apart from the enhanced top prize. You have to match five main numbers from 1 to 50, plus two Lucky Stars between 1 and 12, to win or share the jackpot.
If nobody wins, the jackpot will roll over to the following draw and an even larger amount will be available.
This could set up the possibility of the jackpot going all the way up to its €240 million cap, although recent history suggests there might be a winner much earlier.
A single ticket holder from the UK pocketed £130 million (worth £111 million) in the last Superdraw on 2nd June. Previously, it rolled over just once in March before a Belgian player scooped €144 million.
The biggest jackpot of the year actually came in May, when three tickets split a colossal €159 million (£138 million) after 11 consecutive draws without a winner. The lucky tickets were sold in France, Switzerland and the UK, with each player snaring €55 million (£46 million).
It remains to be seen whether the upcoming Super Jackpot event sets up an even larger win further down the line, or gives someone a €130 million payout on the day.
There have been more Superdraws in September than any other month, so make sure not to miss out on the next opportunity to grab a big win. You can also take part in EuroMillions every Tuesday and Friday night in the lead-up to the special event.
