EuroMillions SuperDraw in One Week

EuroMillions LotteryNext Friday night, the EuroMillions Lottery is holding a SuperDraw, which will have a guaranteed jackpot of €100,000,000. However, tonight’s draw already has a €78,000,000 to play for and, if the top prize continues to rollover, the SuperDraw may be come a technicality, as the jackpot will already be more than the €100,000,000 guaranteed figure. The €100,000,000 advertised jackpot is a guaranteed minimum and it will not be added to the current jackpot.

If the jackpot did rollover for the next two draws and the current jackpot exceeds the guaranteed SuperDraw jackpot, it would be an unprecedented event that has never been seen before. What will happen? We’re not entirely sure. If we were to hazard a guess, we believe that nothing will happen. We think that the draw will take place as usual with a jackpot that’s already bigger than the guaranteed €100,000,000 prize. Although, this will be quite an anticlimax, following all of the hype that surrounds EuroMillions SuperDraws.

With the EuroMillions cap at €190 million, a SuperDraw rollover can quickly escalate to the jackpot limit in just a few rollovers because when SuperDraw jackpots roll, they grow quickly and lottery fever tends to take hold.
