€59 Million SuperEnalotto Jackpot scooped in Sardinia

A Sardinia player from Sassari has landed a prize of around €60 million in SuperEnaLotto draw this summer.  The lucky ticket holder became the first SuperEnalotto jackpot winner since the game resumed since the brief Corona pandemic related stops. There were a total of 339,852 winners across all the prize tiers.

After 50 consecutive rollovers, the jackpot was worth €59,472,355. Out of all the entries in the draw, a single lucky ticket matched all six main numbers – 16, 24, 29, 53, 73 and 88 – and won the full amount. It has been revealed that the winning ticket was sold at the Tabacchi Riv 45 store via Luna e Sole 11. The winner got an incredible return as they spent only €3 on taking part.

The focus will obviously now turn to finding out the identity of the winner and knowing whether it was an individual or a group win. The owner of the winning store, Piera Fara said: “You must excuse me but I am very excited.” Fara said they have had some winnings with ‘Scratch and Win’ but they didn’t expect a ‘6’ in their betting shop.

“It is the 7th – and largest – SuperEnalotto jackpot to have been won in Sardinia.” Fara added that this is really something for all of them in the region “I don’t know if the person who bought the ticket is a local or a tourist, as this is a very popular place.” The last time a jackpot was won was on January 28, when a player from Arcola landed a €67 million prize.

Since then the top prize has been rising, though there was a six-week suspension (between 21st March and 4th May) in the game due to coronavirus. The biggest ever SuperEnalotto jackpot win came last year when a lucky person from Lodi scooped €209 million. That was also the largest lottery prize ever given away in Europe at the time.
