History Of Italy’s Super Star Lottery
The SuperEnalotto represents one of Europe’s most successful and longest-running lotteries boasting over 60 years of winning history. Italy’s popular Enalotto began in the 1950’s and was taken over in 1996 by SISAL, a private betting and gaming management company, which gave the lottery a new look and feel. SuperEnalotto Super Star was launched in its current format in 1997 by Rodolfo Molo, the son of one of SISAL’s original founders with the goal of creating a lottery game with a user-friendly format and massive jackpots.
The first SuperEnalotto Super Star draw took place on December 3rd, 1997 and became an instant hit. Since then, the SuperEnalotto series has continued to make history, splitting its proceeds between SISAL, the Italian Government and various charitable organizations.
Until 2009, the lottery’s six winning numbers were taken from the results of the first numbers drawn from lottery games played in the cities of Bari, Florence, Milan, Naples, Palermo, and Rome (with Venice’s lottery providing the bonus number). Later that year, SuperEnalotto adopted a more traditional drawing format, holding one draw for the six winning numbers and the “Jolly” (bonus) number and a separate draw for the optional “SuperStar” (additional) number.
Rules and Prizes
SuperEnalotto Super Star enables fans of the classic SuperEnalotto lottery to play the familiar game with the added benefits of the Super Star additional number. To play, fill in two lines with a 6 number selection from the standard SuperEnalotto guess range of 1-90. A bonus number (Jolly) will be selected at the time of draw. The Jolly number is drawn from the same drum as the regular number selection. In the event that a guess set matches 5 numbers and the bonus number, the player will be entitled to secondary prizes.
The Super Star additional number is selected from a separate drum with an identical guess range of 1-90. The Super Star adds major cash prizes to SuperEnalotto’s five existing prize categories and creates three new prize categories of its own, for a total of 13 different ways to win!
The benefits of the Super Star include: an addition of €2 million to a SuperEnaloto jackpot prize, an addition €1 million to SuperEnalotto’s second prize, the multiplication of other prize categories by 25-100 times, and a cash prize for players who successfully guess the Super Star alone.
