Launched in 1997 by a private corporation, the SuperEnaLotto is a modification of
EnaLotto in the 1950s. But since its inception, the lottery has been a source of
an ever priceless entertainment, superb adrenalin rush on draw events, and ceaseless
hope among wannabes.
The prizes in SuperEnaLotto are in several millions. On October 30, 2010, one ticket
was recorded to have won the Jackpot prize amounting to €177,800,000. Said amount
was the largest after the rollovers for over eight months.
Playing the SuperEnaLotto
Thanks to the internet, it is now easier and more convenient to play lotto games.
In order to play, you must first register an account with Icelotto, the official
online ticketing provider of wider-range lotto games. Registering is open to all
individuals aged 18 years and above regardless of location and citizenship.
Registering is easy as you only need to provide your complete name, active e-mail
address, country, and contact numbers both mobile and landline. Once you have created
your account, you will need to verify the same by clicking on a verification link
sent to the e-mail you have earlier registered with Icelotto.
When your account has been verified, you can play lotto anytime, anywhere by clicking
on the SuperEnaLotto button on the ‘Play Lottery’ menu.
You can choose your number combination randomly as soon as you log in to Icelotto
and play the game. You can also prepare a codigo of numbers you have carefully chosen
for the entry. Icelotto features a random approach in selecting a combination number
for every ticket you play. The limit of entries you can play per purchase is 10
lines, and the maximum number of draws is 100. After you have completed your entries,
you will then be ushered to the payment page.
There is a countdown to the last seconds in buying tickets for a particular draw
week. When the countdown is over, no ticket shall be sold except for the next draw
Drawing of Winning Number Combination
The draw happens every Saturdays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays at eight o’clock in the
evening in Italy. There is one draw for the six-number combination of the jackpot
prize and the Jolly number, and a separate draw for the SuperStar.
Drawing the Jolly number is almost the same as how UK Lotto game’s bonus number
is drawn and to EuroMillions game’s Lucky Star number.
If you won any of the prizes in SuperEnaLotto, you will be notified through an e-mail.
Should there be no winner for the prizes including the jackpot, all players registered
with Icelotto will also be notified. The prizes for the zero-winner categories will
be rolled over to the prize for the next draw events. This means, that the jackpot
prize that is not won in a particular draw will increase with rollovers for the
succeeding draws until it is won. There is no cap that limits the number of times
that a prize is rolled over. There is no roll down of its jackpot prizes.
It was in 2009 when SuperEnaLotto had continuous rollovers of jackpot prize beginning
in January and ending in August. After more than eight months of having no winner,
the jackpot prize amounting to €147.8 million was bagged from a man hailing from
Toscana, Italy. For about nine months of rolling over in 2010, the highest jackpot
prize ever recorded—€177.8 million was claimed.
SuperEnaLotto’s unlimited rolling over of the jackpot prize has become a sensation
across the continents. There is no doubt that when millions of tourists come to
Italy, they take the opportunity to play the lotto and experience different thrills
knowing hundreds of millions may be at stake for the jackpot.

Starting Prize for the Jackpot and Taxes
As soon as the jackpot prize is won, it will revert to its starting prize—€1.3 million.
Rollovers begin as soon as the prize is not won. If prizes are won, however, they
are subject to a tax in Italy at 1.03 percent for winnings amounting to more than
€100, 3.1 percent on winning more than €300, and finally, 6 per cent on winning
The Beginning of SuperEnaLotto
A private corporation, SISAL, owns exclusive franchise rights to SuperEnaLotto in
1950s. The name has been modified from EnaLotto. Since then, SISAL works continuously
with Italy’s local governments. Over time, there have been several amendments to
the rules to make the game ever more fun. In December 1997, the lottery game had
its first draw event under the new name SuperEnaLotto.
