100 Million euros jackpot won in Italian lotto “superenalotto” in Sicily.

Would you go public ?

Won in Catania, on the east coast of Sicily, known as the home of Cosa Nostra the Sicilian mafia, rumours have it the winner has gone into hiding, as the hunt starts to find out who has won.

Ironically the council of Catania recently received a similar amount to help it through financial difficulties.

The town lit up with joy and a big celebration started. Great for Catania which is currently in darkness as the council can’t afford to pay its bills.

The winner will be able to buy a fantastic italian property now.

Thanks to everyone who placed a bet, but unfortunately none of you won. The jackpot has now returned to a small 20 Million euros. Good luck.

There is currently lotto fever spreading the whole of Italy. The jackpot has not been won for the last six months, since April, and it has now rolled over to a big 100 million Euros. This is the largest lottery premium in Italian history.

Italian superenalotto is drawn every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Tuesday 21st, with a jackpot of 94.8 million Euros, saw no straight 6, so its rollover and the fever is boiling.

Queues are starting to form outside the lottery shops, people are spending their life savings, a consortium placed a combination bet worth 30,000 euros, everyone is talking lottery in Italy.

A consumer rights group Condacom has launched a legal battle against the national run lottery, demanding a maximum on the premium, and splitting the excess premium across the other national lottery games.

Saturday’s last draw saw over 100 million bets. With odds at 600 million to one you never know it could be your lucky day !!!

You have to select 6 numbers from 1 – 90.
If you fancy a go it costs 1 euro for 2 attempts.

Paypal me 2 euros (that’s a 1 euro admin fee for the ink and running back and forth to the shop) and I’ll place your bet for you. Email me your 2 sets of 6 numbers.
Applications open.

Terms and Conditions : if you win I take a 10% handling fee !!
The Italian state only actually pays you 60 days after you win with interest. So be patient ( I haven’t run off with your winnings !!) you’ll receive 100M + 200,000 interest less 10% = approx 90M Euros.
