The history of SuperEnalotto: from Enalotto to WinBox

Very often we talk about winnings regarding millionaire jackpots, but few people know the history of SuperEnalotto, the lottery born in the late 90s and which takes its cue from the traditional Lotto game.

The origins of the game

SuperEnalotto was born in 1997, when the old Enalotto – active since the 1950s – is decommissioned. The game is very simple: traditional lottery extractions are used (wheels of Bari, Florence, Milan, Naples, Palermo, Rome) to win large jackpots. The first jackpot was won in 1998, when they were won in the province of Brescia 11.8 billion lire. In 2002 the game adopted the euro as its currency and in 2016, with the relaunch of SuperEnalotto, the cost of the ticket became 1 euro.

SuperStar competition

SuperEnalotto is also known for SuperStar competition, which allows you to increase the payout categories and win additional prizes. This change came into effect in 2006 and already in 2008 the lucky first managed to win well 47 million euros doing 6 plus the SuperStar number.

The highest jackpots and the latest news

SuperEnalotto became a hugely popular game starting in 2010, when news went around the world: one lucky player wins € 177.7 million. The highest jackpot ever was reached in 2019, when € 209.1 million was awarded.

But the most recent novelty of SuperEnalotto concerns, instead, the world of digitization: the most famous lottery in Italy, in fact, is renewed by introducing WinBox’s additional payout categories. Starting from 1 October 2021, in fact, at no additional cost it is possible to participate with a single SuperEnalotto bet also in WinBox. But how does this last novelty work and what are the prizes up for grabs?

SuperEnalotto WinBox: how does it work?

SuperEnalotto WinBox is a novelty halfway between traditional and online gaming. After playing in the betting shop, it will be possible to frame the QR Code on the game receipt through the official SuperEnalotto App. At no additional cost you will participate in an immediate drawing, which will allow you to win up to 500 euros. If you fail to win anything with the traditional SuperEnalotto draw, you will also be entitled to a Second Chance with prizes of up to 50 euros. The winnings are assigned in an absolutely random way: a virtual spinning top will spin on the screen to indicate the prize won. The winning denominations are from 500, 200, 20 and 2 euros. As mentioned, the competition is particularly convenient because it does not require additional bets: with a minimum stake, with the SuperStar option, it will be possible participate in three independent draws, thus increasing the chances of winning.
