SuperEnalotto is one of Italys most popular lottery games and is also enjoyed by players across the globe, with jackpots often reaching eight or even nine figure sums of money. The game was previously famed for having very long odds of winning; however, following new rules introduced in February 2016, SuperEnalotto has seen the odds of scooping a cash prize decrease from 1 in 318 to 1 in 20. Furthermore, the rate at which the jackpot grows has dramatically increased, as more money from ticket sales will be allocated to the prize fund.

Players pick six numbers from 1 to 90 in order to win prizes in one of a number of winning tiers, with the player or players who match all six main numbers winning the jackpot. The second-tier prize is awarded for matching five main balls and the Jolly number (similar to the UK Lotto Bonus Ball). You can pick more main numbers if you like and then pay for all combinations of six different numbers within your selection. If you play seven balls you will purchase seven lines, for eight numbers you will buy 28 lines, and so on.
There is also the option to select a SuperStar number between 1 and 90 for an additional fee. The SuperStar is drawn from a separate machine and multiplies the prize when matched with three, four or five main SuperEnalotto numbers. By matching the SuperStar alone or matching it plus one or two main balls, players win a fixed cash prize of 5, 10 or 100 respectively. There is a SuperBonus of 1 million for matching the SuperStar with five main numbers and the Jolly and 2 million for matching all six main numbers and the Superstar, although the odds of achieving that are just over one in 56 billion.
Here are the odds of winning a prize on SuperEnalotto in each of the tiers:

SuperEnalotto draws take place on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 20:00 CET, and regular rollovers mean big prizes are available for players. The jackpot once rolled over for more than eight months before the largest-ever SuperEnalotto win on a single ticket in October 2010, when a syndicate of 70 won 177,800,000.
