The next EuroMillions Superdraw has been announced, and is set to take place on Friday 7th June 2019. Players across Europe will have the chance to win an inflated EuroMillions jackpot, which will be increased especially for the draw, irrespective of previous results or rollovers.
The latest Superdraw comes over four months after the last Superdraw, held on Friday 1st February. No one won the £105 million bumper EuroMillions jackpot on the day of the draw, but after five subsequent rollovers, one ticket holder in Ireland laid claim to £152 million.
What Is The EuroMillions Superdraw?
The EuroMillions Superdraw is a special kind of draw, which takes place when the EuroMillions Reserve Fund reaches a certain amount. The Reserve Fund – designated to fund increases in jackpots, non-jackpot prizes and Millionaire Maker prizes – receives money from the Common Prize Fund, which pays out prizes to winners, each EuroMillions draw. The amount of money given to the Reserve Fund increases from 4.8% per draw to 21% per draw if the jackpot has rolled over more than six times.
When enough money has been accumulated in the Reserve Fund, it is used to increase the prizes on offer for a special draw. If no one wins the jackpot in the Superdraw, it rolls over just like a normal EuroMillions jackpot – allowing even more players a chance to win the substantial prize.
The Superdraw jackpot, and any subsequent rollovers, are still subject to a jackpot cap, which prevents any jackpot exceeding €190 million (£162 million).
