Win £115M in the EuroMillions Superdraw on 3rd July
It has been revealed that the next EuroMillions Superdraw will take place on Friday 3rd July 2020. EuroMillions fans in the UK will be able to play for a jackpot worth around £115 million, no matter what happens in the draws before. Superdraws are special events that offer boosted jackpots on certain occasions throughout the year - July’s will be the second one of 2020.
Second Superdraw of 2020 Offers £115 Million Jackpot
On the night, the jackpot will be a guaranteed €130 million, which comes in at approximately £115 million at today’s exchange rate. That might change slightly by the time the draw arrives, as EuroMillions jackpots are set in euros and then converted to sterling for UK players. That means that any fluctuations in the exchange rate leading up to the draw will affect the value of the jackpot in sterling - the final amount is worked out based on the exchange rate on the evening of the draw.
You play the EuroMillions Superdraw in the same way that you participate in EuroMillions on any other draw night. Simply select your lines for the draw on Friday 3rd July either online or in-store and you are in with a chance of banking that nine-figure prize, or any of the others on offer. There are no additional numbers to choose from or codes to check; simply match all five main numbers and two Lucky Stars to claim the top prize.
The simple difference between a Superdraw and regular draw is that the jackpot is guaranteed to be a nine-figure sum, whether it follows a jackpot win in the draw before or a run of rollovers.
The only time the jackpot differs from the advertised amount is if it naturally rolls over to exceed that value before the draw takes place. A €100 million Superdraw booked in for Friday 6th June 2014, for example, was cancelled after the top prize rolled into nine figures of its own accord. The jackpot then rolled twice more before a Spanish player claimed €137.3 million (£109.5 million at the time) a week later on Friday 13th June.
In October last year, a planned EuroMillions Superdraw was postponed as the jackpot had reached the game’s maximum prize of €190 million (£170 million at the time) in advance. The jackpot rolled again on what would have been the night of the Superdraw before an anonymous UK player snapped up the full amount, the biggest ever EuroMillions prize in sterling terms, on the following Tuesday.
About EuroMillions Superdraws
The first EuroMillions Superdraw was worth €100 million and took place on Friday 9th February 2007. Until 2015, all Superdraws offered a guaranteed €100 million jackpot. However, new EuroMillions rules in 2016 saw that boosted to €130 million for the majority of these major EuroMillions jackpot events.
July’s EuroMillions Superdraw will be the second of 2020, following a €130 million jackpot event on Friday 7th February. That draw was scheduled to coincide with further changes to the game rules, one of which dictated that there would be an increase to the jackpot cap and more Superdraws per year. On that occasion, a Spanish player from Madrid was the sole winner of the full €130 million prize.
