Get ready for the €130 million EuroMillions Superdraw

The next EuroMillions Superdraw will take place on the 30th of September 2016. And there are 130 million reasons why you shouldn’t miss it. The EuroMillions Superdraw is held randomly throughout the year to commemorate a special event. Superdraw jackpots usually start at €100 million, but this time it’s even bigger.

It’s being held to celebrate some changes to the EuroMillions format which should result in the chance for players to win bigger jackpots.

In October last year, the Powerball also made some changes that many believe led to the record-breaking jackpot of $1.5 billion that was finally won by three lucky ticket holders. The biggest EuroMillions jackpot to date is €190 million. It’s been won twice, once in 2012 and again 2014. But if there’s no winner on the 30th of September, the jackpot will roll over. Once it reaches the €190 million cap, it will remain there for another four draws. After that, if there’s still no winner the prize will roll down and be divided amongst the winners in the next highest prize tier.

Other notable jackpots include the Mega Millions and EuroJackpot. The Mega Millions holds the titles of second-biggest jackpot in the USA. An incredible $656 million dollar jackpot was split between three winning tickets in 2012. Each winner went home with a handsome sum of $158 million apiece. While just last year, the EuroJackpot gave away a €90 million jackpot to winner from the Czech Republic.

But the EuroMillions still has some way to go to beat the Powerball lottery. This is the lottery that everyone wants to play. And thanks to online ticket concierge services, anyone can play and win the Powerball online. This may have contributed to that record-breaking jackpot. Once the Powerball exceeded the $1 billion mark, it sent people all over the world into frenzy. Everybody wanted to get their hands on a ticket for the next draw and that sent ticket sales skyrocketing. Could the same happen with the EuroMillions Superdraw? We’ll just have to wait and see.
