In the SuperEnalotto lottery in Italy, a ticket with all six correctly typed numbers was drawn at the draw on Tuesday, April 17th, 2018, thus winning over 130 million euros. As the lottery company Sisal announced on Twitter, the only ticket in Sicily, in Caltanissetta, has been sold. The lucky one – or a syndicate had ticked the winning numbers 12, 23, 39, 54, 72 and 73 correctly.
For the direct hit exactly 130.195.242,12 euro are paid out. It’s the fifth highest win in SuperEnalotto history. It’s also the first time this year that the famous “six right-wingers” have been hit in the lottery. Most recently, the jackpot was emptied in early August last year. The tipster from the Venice region had invested 4.50 for his lucky tip and thus cleared a jackpot of around 78 million euros.
The highest ever SuperEnalotto jackpot with around 178 million euros, was cracked in October 2010, followed by a jackpot of 163 million euros in 2016. In 2009, a lucky guy cleared 147 million euros. Fourth place in the top SuperEnalotto jackpots proves a grand prize of 139 million euros in 2010.
This Thursday, the jackpot starts again from the beginning. The first prize is expected to be € 24 million. Drawings at the Italian lottery take place three times a week – on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. In the SuperEnalotto, 6 right-backs from 90 lead to the jackpot. The winning percentage for the grand prize is about 1 to 622 million. A maximum or a forced payout does not exist with SuperEnalotto – the pot rises until it is cracked.
