SuperEnaLotto Background and History
Can jackpot prize be limitless? If you ask the generous Italians they will nod in confirmation. SuperEnalotto, the most popular Italian lottery, doesn’t have rollover caps on jackpots and the draw is held three times a week which only speeds up the process of creating enormous jackpots. Once won, these will maketeh winner some of the richest people in the world.
The history and origin of this incredible game of chance are rooted in the very heart of Italy. Enalotto is a predecessor to SuperEna Lotto that started soon after the second world war, and reached wide spread popularity soon after. The epithet “Super” added to Enalotto was inevitable in 1997, when it indeed became Super; this game of chance was relaunched and transformed into an even more awesome lottery.
Having in mind how complicated some of the world’s lotteries are, Italians came up with a staggering simplicity when it comes to how to play SuperEna lottery, and not only is it easy to play, they evolved the concept of rollover caps by excluding it completely. This means that the sky is not the limit, as limits don’t exist at all. That unique trait brought this lottery to the top, making it intriguing for a worldwide audience.
What is also very interesting and unique is that there were no draws held especially for SuperEna Lotto. The numbers, in the beginning, were chosen from Lottomatica’s lotto draws for Bari, Florence, Milan, Naples, Palermo & Rome (in that order). The Jolly number came from the Venice draw. If the number had been used before, then the second number was used instead. The system was changed and became independent from Lottomatica in July 2009, so today we have six numbers plus the Jolly ball, which provides better chances of winning and it is considered a bonus ball.
In the beginning, this limitless game was exclusively available only to residents of Italy, while today you can buy SuperEna lottery tickets worldwide.
How to play SuperEnaLotto
With the reputation of one of the simplest lotteries to play, playing SuperEna Lotto is easy. The game has a vast pool of numbers ranging from 1 to 90, and you need to choose six numbers when you buy SuperEna lottery tickets.

The odds of becoming a millionaire are not so high with this lottery, but the thrill of the game and the cash won in the case of a lucky win attracted many serious players from all around the globe.
The Jolly ball, symbolic as the meaning of its name, is added to your ticket when purchasing. This helps any non-jackpot winning tiers significantly increase their winnings. The overall odds of winning any prize are high; you only need to match two numbers, which is also unique among lotteries where three or four are the minimum.
