About

 

Italy may be known for its breathtaking architecture and for being the seat of the Roman Catholic Church, however for us, it’s always going to be most important as the home of the Italy SuperEnalotto game.

The SuperEnalotto game is a rather unusual one in that, while it is a traditional lottery game, it has a different standard than most others that you may be familiar with. We’ll go into it in a moment, but let’s also talk about SISAL, the company that runs the SuperEnalotto game. They run all Italian lottery games and have been doing so for more than 60 years. The other games they offer include such favorites as Big Race bici, Totip+, Tris, Seleziona Gioco Totogol, Big Race, Big Show, Auto/Moto, Totocalcio, Big Race Sci, Big Match and Formula 101-GP.

Game Type

As noted above, the Italy SuperEnalotto game is a traditional lottery game which requires you to pick six numbers in order to play. However, unlike most other lottery games, the pool of possible numbers is increased to 90. That means you have to pick six numbers correctly out of a total of 90 possible choices in order to win the jackpot in SuperEnalotto.

In addition to this unusual twist, the game also includes a “Jolly Number” which is a bonus number similar to the “power ball” in the American Powerball game. However, unlike that game, the Jolly Number doesn’t need to be chosen correctly in order to win the jackpot. You only need to get it right in order to win the SuperEnalotto second prize.

Who Can Play

As with most European lottery games, the Italian SuperEnalotto game is open to anyone who cares to purchase a ticket, either in person, at one of the many lottery kiosks all over Italy, or via the Internet at one of the many specialty websites which sell lottery tickets.

Odds of Winning

The odds of winning the jackpot in SuperEnalotto are 1 in 622,610,000. 1 in 103,760,000 manages to win the second prize and 1 in 1,230,000 is able to win the third prize. Fourth prize odds are 1 in 11,907 and fifth place odds are 1 in 327. The good news however is that, while the odds are a little long, the payoff can be huge. The biggest jackpot ever awarded in the Italian SuperEnalotto game was €100,756,197, paid out in one lump sum in October 2008. That amount was made possible by the way because the jackpot for SuperEnalotto is progressive, meaning that it increases every time that no one wins the game.
