Moreover, if there are no jackpot-winning tickets on June 30th, the €100 million prize will get bigger and bigger with each rollover until it finds its winner.

Everything About the EuroMillions SuperDraws
The SuperDraws are very special events organized by the EuroMillions lottery. These feature enormous jackpots with a guaranteed amount of €100 million. The funds for SuperDraws come from the EuroMillions Booster Fund, which is a special fund reserved specifically for these special events. On each regular EuroMillions draw, 4.8% of the Common Prize Fund goes to the Booster fund, which is then used to fuel the SuperDraw jackpot.
There can be one or more SuperDraws each year in the EuroMillions, and the best thing about them is the element of surprise. They are not organized on special events or at the same time each year. They can take place at any time during the year, but fortunately for players, they are announced in advance so that players have time to get their tickets.
And to increase the excitement even more, there is more than one type of SuperDraw. The first one is the Event Draw, where the €100 million jackpot must be won. If there are no tickets with the winning five main numbers and Lucky Stars, then the prize rolls down to the following prize category and it is shared among the winners.
The second type of EuroMillions SuperDraw is the Super Minimum Jackpot Guarantee Draw (SMJD). For this one, the jackpot rolls over in the event that there is not jackpot winner for the draw. As we have mentioned above, the first prize will then increase on each draw up till it reaches the €190 million cap. The SuperDraw on June 30th will be in the latter category, which seems to be the most popular one.
Up to this point, there have been 18 SuperDraws in the EuroMillions and of these, only six have produced winners. For instance, the latest SuperDraw, which was held on Friday, September 30th, 2016, did not have a jackpot winner. The first prize rolled over until it reached €168 million and found its winner on October 11th, 2016.
