How to Play
To play the Italian Superenalotto, you must choose 6 numbers from 1-90. Match all six numbers extracted from the Bari, Florence, Milan, Naples, Palermo and Rome lottery wheels, and you win the Jackpot! Match any 5 of the numbers drawn plus the special "Jolly" (drawn from the Venice lottery drum), and you win the second division prize!
When the 1st and the 2nd division cash prizes are not won, both amounts are added to boost the Jackpot prize for the succeeding draw. And because the number range is so wide (1-90), rollover draws – and HUGE jackpots – are very common.
