EuroMillions Megadraws are special events which offer fantastic guaranteed jackpots. They are usually scheduled a few times a year and raise the top prize to a fixed, nine-figure amount regardless of whether or not anyone won in the previous draw.
Superdraws operate under the same rules as regular draws, meaning that if nobody wins the jackpot it will roll over to the next game and grow even larger. The only difference is the size of the top prize.
Here is a full list of all the Megadraws to have taken place:

The first Megadraw took place on Friday 9th February 2007 and offered a jackpot of €100 million. A player from Belgium matched all five main numbers and both Lucky Stars to win the money on the night. There has continued to be at least one Megadraw every year since, and the top prize often rolls over, creating some of the largest prizes ever seen on the game.
In June 2013, an Irish player and a Belgian player split a rollover Megadraw jackpot worth €187 million. Each ticket holder received €93.9 million, and the Irish winner, who purchased their ticket in Dublin, chose to remain anonymous.
More recently, a ticket holder from Co Dublin won the biggest ever lottery jackpot in Ireland after a Superdraw and five rollovers. The winner took home a prize worth €175 million after matching all the numbers in the draw on 19th February 2019.
The Reserve Fund
The money for Megadraws comes from the EuroMillions Reserve Fund. A fixed percentage of the prize fund, 4.8%, is always kept in reserve to ensure there is enough money in the pot for minimum jackpots of €17 million and to provide special events from time to time. In some instances, the amount of money diverted to the Reserve Fund may increase to 21%. Visit the EuroMillions Prizes page to find out more about the Reserve Fund.
