Your Guide to the Next EuroMillions Superdraw

For games all about hard to guess numbers and low winning odds, lotteries can be surprisingly predictable with draws held on the same day and time for years on end and little to no variation in schedule or format. However, the exact opposite is the case with the EuroMillions Superdraw, the most special event on the lottery calendar. Keep on reading to find out everything you need to know about the Superdraw's extraordinary boosted jackpots and when to expect them.

What is the EuroMillions Superdraw?

The first question to answer is what even is the EuroMillions Superdraw?

Well, the Superdraw is a very special lottery event that's held once every few months and guarantees a substantially larger minimum jackpot for the EuroMillions draw. It follows the same rules as EuroMillions, with players selecting 5 main numbers from a guess range of 1-50 and 2 Lucky Stars numbers from a guess range of 1-12.

While the usual starting jackpot for EuroMillions is a not-unimpressive €17 million (approximately AU$25.3 million) the Superdraw sweetens the pot several times over with a massive €130 million (approximately AU$193.7 million) starting jackpot that can continue to grow up to the EuroMillions jackpot cap of €250 million (approximately AU$411.6 million).

As for winning the top prize, after reaching the €250 million cap, the Superdraw jackpot can only roll over for a maximum of four drawings. If not won within those four drawings, the prize simply rolls down and is divided among the winners of the next highest prize tier.

What's the EuroMillions Superdraw jackpot record?

The EuroMillions Superdraw jackpot record was set on 8 December 2023 when one lucky winner from Austria succeeded in winning what was the jackpot cap of €240 million, which was then raised to €250 million.

Other huge Superdraw wins include a €230 million top prize won by a British player on 19 July 2022 and a €200 million jackpot won in France on 20 November 2020.

As you can see, this lottery's prizes keep on going up and up - the only question is when will the next record be broken?

EuroMillions Superdraw: time and day

If all this has gotten you interested in the game, you're probably wondering when to expect the new Superdraw.

The draws themselves are held like regular EuroMillions draws, meaning they happen on Tuesdays and Fridays at 9:00 pm CET (5:00 am AEST).

As far as when the next Superdraw will happen, your guess is as good as ours. While Superdraws are reliably called a few times a year, there's no specific schedule so finding out about one is always a fun surprise and it means EuroMillions fans always have something exciting to look forward to in the near future.
