SuperEnalotto Game Rules

Game Rules - What is SuperEnalotto?

SuperEnalotto is a lottery played in Italy and also online at All The Best Lottos. SuperEnalotto has been played by Italians for almost 25 years and was first launched on 3rd December 1997 by the Sisal Group.

How to play SuperEnalotto

To play SuperEnalotto, pick 6 numbers from 1 to 90, or you can click “Generate” to randomise your numbers.

There is also an extra number known as the Jolly, which gives an additional chance to all second prize tier winners that match 5 numbers. If you match 5 numbers, plus the Jolly you will win a second-tier prize and the Jolly prize.

What is the “Jolly” number?

The Jolly number is the seventh number to be drawn in a SuperEnalotto draw and is designed to give a boost to any player that wins the second tier SuperEnalotto prize. The Jolly number cannot be chosen when picking your numbers, nor does it appear on your lottery ticket. Instead, you match it using your existing numbers when the draw results are announced.

Let’s take a recent SuperEnalotto draw result as an example of how you can win more with the Jolly number.

This result was taken from 13th March 2021:

28 - 29 - 43 - 59 - 70 - 79 + Jolly 52

Let’s say you had a ticket and were able to match 5 of those numbers. Eg, you matched:

28 - 29 - XX - 59 - 70 - 79

This means you won the second tier prize! However, if you check your numbers again, you see that there was an extra number that you didn’t check:

28 - 29 - 52 - 59 - 70 - 79 | The Jolly number!

So now, on top of your second-tier prize, you also win a whole lot more!

About SuperEnalotto

About - Pizza, Pasta and Primo Prizes!

SuperEnalotto is an Italian-based lottery that is drawn three times a week right in the heart of Rome. This lottery has no jackpot limit, so it can reach heights higher than Mount Vesuvius! SuperEnalotto also includes a ‘Jolly’, bonus ball, which helps determine the second prize tier. Check out why SuperEnalotto is one of Italy’s most treasured traditions today!

The History of SuperEnalotto

The SuperEnalotto has a rich heritage. First envisioned over 70 years ago, 'Enalotto' is a celebrated Italian lottery that has existed since the early 1950s.

The game is rumoured to be first conceived by Florentine resident Dante Benedetti in 1949, but unfortunately, he did not have the money to patent the idea and a colleague stole the rights from under him. Little is known about Benedetti and we do not know if he died a rich or poor man.

The game name is a composition of ENAL and Lotto. ENAL stands for Ente nazionale assistenza lavoratori (the National Workers Assistance Body), the union that originally ran the Italian game.

In 1997, lottery licensee SISAL modified the 'Enalotto' lottery to create the SuperEnalotto game we know and love today.

Until 30th June 2009, all seven lotto numbers were taken from famous cities around Italy. Bari, Florence, Milan, Naples, Palermo, Rome and Venice (in that order). Venice was used to draw the "Jolly" number. The system was changed because there was a small probability that the numbers of two cities could be the same, resulting in duplicate numbers and making it impossible to win the jackpot.

The Biggest SuperEnalotto jackpot ever

After more than one year of rollovers, the biggest SuperEnalotto jackpot prize ever totalled €209,160,441 million (£179,553,044) on 13th August 2019. The winning ticket was sold at a bar in Lodi. It is the biggest European jackpot to go to a single ticket.

The second-biggest single-ticket jackpot won €177.7 million (£152.55 million) after more than 8 months of rollovers. The jackpot was split by a syndicate of 70 winners on 30th October 2010. After taxes, each person took home €2,538,986.33 (£2,175,249.97).

The third-highest single-ticket jackpot won €163,538,706 million (£140,110,075) on 27th October 2016 in Vibo Valentia after a year-long wait for the numbers to come up.
