The History of Superenalotto goes all the way back to the 1950’s. Back then it was simply known as ‘enalotto’, it wasn’t until 1997, with the growth of national lotteries around Europe, that the Italian enalotto was modified and the Superenalotto was created. Since 1997 the lottery has been a great success due to its popularity, frequency of the draws and high jackpots.
If you win over €500 on the Superenalotto you will be required to pay an Italian tax of six percent. Players residing outside Italy should meet with a qualified financial adviser if they win a large SuperEnalotto prize, as taxes in their own location may apply to their winnings.

Tips & Tricks For Increasing Your Odds:
The best way to increase your odds with the Superenalotto is to buy group game tickets, It’s simply logic & math. When you buy group game tickets what happens is that you ‘pool together’ your tickets with other players and therefore increase your odds instantly.
For example: If you wanted to buy a single ticket for a Superenalotto draw it will cost you around €2.50 offline, and anywhere up to €5 per ticket online. With a group game option you buy shares in a group of tickets online. 50 tickets could make up one group (groups can be anywhere from 30-100 tickets grouped together).
This group of 50 tickets is then split into 100 shares and each share can be sold separately, this way the player can buy a share in a group of 50 tickets for a prices much cheaper, as little as $0.16 per ticket. If one of the group’s ticket is a winner then the winning amount will be split according to how many shares you have in the group. This means that instead of €5 getting you one or two tickets, through a group game the same €5 will get you closer to 30 lines. That’s 30 chances to win for the price of two tickets!
