The EuroMillions Superdraw is the biggest lottery event in the whole of Europe. Why? Because of the jackpots, of course. Held a few times a year, these special draws bring huge jackpots of at least €100 million. Normally, the first prize can only get to such amounts after a long series of rollovers, but with Superdraws, it can happen from one draw to another! Here is everything you need to know about these exciting events!
What Is a EuroMillions Superdraw Anyway?
The EuroMillions Superdraw is just like a regular draw, except it comes with an enormous jackpot. Regardless of the amount of the previous first prize, for the Superdraw, the jackpot is at least €100 million. For some of the Superdraws, the jackpots were €120 million or even €130 million.
- Superdraws follow the same rules as the regular draws.
- You still have to guess all the 5 main numbers and both the Lucky Stars to win.
- The only difference is the size of the jackpot, which is guaranteed to be at least €100 million.
- If there is no jackpot winner on the Superdraw, the jackpot rolls over.
- Superdraws are announced a few weeks ahead so that you have time to buy EuroMillions tickets.

The EuroMillions organizes about 3 Superdraws per year, but there is no official rule regarding the frequency of these special events. The first such European lottery event of the year usually takes place in February or March. The second one is typically announced in June and there is often a third Superdraw in the fall, usually around October.

Both of them represent special lottery events, usually featuring a guaranteed jackpot of €100 million. The main difference between EuroMillions Superdraws and Event Draws is what happens if nobody wins the jackpot that draw. If nobody has the winning numbers for the first prize, the Superdraw jackpot rolls over and can go on until it reaches the €220million cap, but that is not the case with Event Draws. Without a jackpot winner, the entire amount of the first prize passes down to the following category that has winners.
