EuroMillions Superdraw To Feature €100M Jackpot

A EuroMillions Superdraw, featuring a guaranteed €100 million (£80 million), will take place on Friday the 3rd of October 2014. The announcement comes after the last Superdraw, scheduled for Friday the 6th of June 2014, was cancelled due to the coveted EuroMillions jackpot naturally reaching, and exceeding the €100 million (approx. €80 million) which typically features in these special draws.


The first EuroMillions Superdraw was held on the 9th of February 2007. Commonly occurring twice a year, they mark changes to the lottery or a special event and typically feature a guaranteed €100 million (£80 million) jackpot regardless of whether or not a player scoops the first prize in the preceding draw.

Money is taken from the common prize fund and added to the existing jackpot with the potential of reaching up to €130 million depending on the available funds. Past EuroMillions Superdraws have famously produced some of the biggest EuroMillions winners in the history of the lottery.

The forthcoming Superdraw is the second to be held this year with the first taking place on Friday the 7th of March 2014. Players across the world failed to scoop the life-changing top prize thus, two rollovers ensued before the enormous €129 million (£107 million) jackpot was finally bagged by fortunate UK player Neil Trotter, now featuring amongst the biggest EuroMillions winners since the beginning of the game in 2004.

Similarly, a second EuroMillions Superdraw was scheduled to take place on Friday the 6th of June 2014. However, following a series of a exciting rollovers the EuroMillions jackpot reached, and exceeded, the sum of €100 million (approx. €80 million) of its own accord. Thus, this special promotional draw was cancelled and scheduled for a later date, Friday the 3rd of October 2014.

The upcoming Superdraw, held on Friday the 3rd of October, will feature a guaranteed €100 million (£80 million). Fortunate winners will join a long line of players who have taken home a nine-digit sum including Adrian and Gillian Bayford who pocketed €190,000,000 (£148,656,000) on the 10th of August 2012, and Britain's biggest EuroMillions winners Colin and Chris Weir.

The couple from Largs, Ayrshire, won a record-breaking €185,000,000 (£161,653,000) in the 12th of July 2011's EuroMillions draw immediately catapulting them to number 1 on the UK National Lottery Rich List.

Players are urged to buy EuroMillions tickets early as demands for the approaching Superdraw are certain to be high.
