SuperEna Lotto is the Italian National Lottery game. Thanks to online lottery sites, it is available to lottery game players all across the globe in many languages and multiple payout options.
SuperEna Lotto Details
The SuperEna lotto game originally launched in the 1950s and was called EnaLotto back then. It has been popular ever since, but more so after the new and improved SuperEna version launched in 1997 by lottery organizers SISAL.
How & When to Play SuperEna
The SuperEna Lottery game plays at 7:30 pm Central European time, three times a week on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. SuperEna Lotto Results are announced on SISAL TV, a channel run by Italian lotto organizers since 1997.
To play this lottery game, all you have to do is select 6 numbers from 1 to 90 and then wait for the draw. Six main numbers and one “Jolly number” are drawn during the game.
In the original format of the game, these numbers were taken from those drawn during 7 different regional lotto games held by Lottomatica.
SuperEna Lotto Numbers
The main numbers were the first numbers drawn from six Italian cities in the following order: Bari, Florence, Milan, Naples, Palermo and Rome. The Jolly number was the first number drawn in the Venice regional lotto.
The SuperEna Lotto process for drawing winning numbers changed in 2009. There is now a single independent draw for all seven numbers and it has nothing to do with the Lottomatica regional draws.
The SuperEna Lottery offers five different prizes based on the numbers you select matched against those drawn. If you match all 6 main numbers you win the grand jackpot prize.
Match 5 main numbers plus the Jolly number and you win the second prize. Hence, the sole purpose of the Jolly number is to increase your chances of winning a big jackpot.
Match 3 to 5 main numbers to win smaller cash prizes. The prize amounts awarded are determined by the amount in the prize pool for that particular draw.
