The SuperEnalotto jackpot had been landed on Saturday 16th March, but rollovers in each of the two midweek games that followed helped the jackpot for last night’s game reach the princely sum of €17.6 million.

No ticket landed a second-tier prize last night, but 10 tickets matched five main numbers only to win €34,429 each at the third-tier. More than 35,000 other tickets won smaller prizes, and there were also more than 65,000 prizes won by SuperStar entries, so a massive well done to everyone involved!
