Last November 16, a lucky player from Rovigo in the province of Belluno took home the SuperEnalotto jackpot of 85 million euros, equal to 85 million euros, by playing with a ticket worth only 3 euros. A “coup” of life-changers that millions of Italians try again and again, several times a week, in the hope that Lady Luck will choose to kiss them. After 2022 without a ‘6’, we are already in the fourth and sixth place this year, but one way or another, there is one player who always wins: The State. In fact, in addition to the balance between the amounts deposited by the players and the winnings, the money obtained from the 20% tax on the part of the winnings exceeding 500 euros also falls into the treasury. To make a simple calculation: The state collected around 17 million euros from Rovigo’s 85 million ‘6. “Penny change” compared to general income.
SuperEnalotto gold mine
The play had been directed by Sisal since 1997 and, as far as he remembers, 24 hours sunThe current concession, which was awarded after the tender was won in 2019 with a bid of 222 million euros plus a 0.5% premium, will expire in 2030. According to the data of the expert agency AgipronewsApproximately one in five Italians play an average of 3 euros (2021 data) every week; This is the same amount that the Rovigo player deposited. In 2022, the year without the ‘6’, Italian players spent approximately 871 million euros chasing the winning squad, and SuperEnalotto distributed over 526 million in total winnings. Excluding the earnings from other awards, 2022 was completed with an expense to the state coffers of 345 million 270 million lira. In 2023, Italian spending increased due to the long “absence” of the winning group.
After the ‘6’ hit in Montappone in May 2021, it was necessary to wait until February 2023 for a new millionaire win. In the first six months of this year, expenditures have already exceeded one billion euros and the State has already cashed in a jackpot of 324 million euros. An increase recorded at the beginning of the year, together with the stratospheric prize pool: 371 million euros, the highest earnings in the history of the game. The huge jackpot of last February 16 was obtained thanks to the “Lucky star” system board of 450 euros; The jackpot was divided into 90 equal parts among many players who deposited 5 euros. When we calculate the 20 percent tax, from this super profit alone the State collected an amount exceeding 70 million euros, to which the following must also be added. In fact, if there was no ‘6’ in 2022, we would have already reached the fourth in 2023. About a month later in February, 73.8 million were won by online betting on March 25, followed by 42.5 million on Teramo on June 10, and continued until November 16, the day of Rovigo’s victory. More winnings but also more draws: Since July 7 (and until December 29), a fourth weekly draw has been launched, on Friday, in addition to the classic draws on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
The luckiest regions
The first lucky region was Lombardy: On January 17, 1998, a player from the city of Poncarale in the province of Brescia reached the first ‘6’ in history and took home the jackpot of 11.8 billion old lira. Of course, the figures need to be compared with the economy of the time: The lowest bonus was recorded in 1998; A six-point success was achieved in Treviso in July of that year and the jackpot was under 3 billion lira (1,258,976.38 euros). be precise).
In the history of SuperEnalotto, 124 ‘6’ successes have been achieved and a total of over 4 billion prizes have been distributed from North to South over time. So is there a luckier region? According to incoming data AgipronewsIn the list of regions with the most awards, Campania ranks first with 18 sixes. Lazio ranks second with 16 sixes, followed by Emilia Romagna with 13. With the win in Rovigo on November 16, Veneto rose to fourth place with Puglia with 10 sixes. Nine jackpots were won in Tuscany, while Piedmont, Sicily, Sardinia and Lombardy won 7 jackpots. Six o’clock is for Calabria, four for Abruzzo and three for Friuli Venezia Giulia. While Umbria and Marche closed the rankings with two jackpots each, Basilicata and Liguria closed the rankings with only one winning group. However, there are three regions that have not achieved 6 since 1997: Valle d’Aosta, Trentino and Molise.
