As Italy’s favourite lotto game, SuperEnalotto continues to break new records, it becomes more and more popular not only in Italy but in many other countries too.
The internet has made playing the lotto so much easier. Nowadays, lottery enthusiasts have the possibility to play all the world’s biggest lotteries. Theoretically, they had the possibility before the internet era too, but it required a lot of effort to buy a lottery ticket for a foreign lottery. Travelling is great, but you don’t have to travel all around the world just to get a ticket for one of the greatest American or European lotteries.
Can You Enter SuperEnalotto if You Don’t Live in Italy?
A common question amongst people seeing the record-breaking SuperEnalotto jackpot currently taking place is, “Are people who don’t live in Italy allowed to play SuperEnalotto?”
The answer, in brief, is yes! There are multiple ways you can participate in SuperEnalotto, and you do not have to be a resident of Italy to do so.
Play The SuperEnalotto While Visiting Italy
If you are a non-Italian citizen visiting Italy, you could make sure that you buy a SuperEnalotto ticket from an authorised retailer. Just like playing the SuperEnalotto online on PlayEuroMillions.com, players need to be 18 years old or over in Italy, regardless of their nationality or citizenship.
In 2009, Italy enjoyed a boom in “lottery tourism,” when the SuperEnalotto jackpot exceeded €130 million.
Many Europeans flocked across the border to purchase tickets for the SuperEnalotto draw that took place on the 13th August.
The draw was so popular that a German newspaper Bild held a competition in which 140 people won a day-trip to Milan on a chartered flight for the express purpose of purchasing SuperEnalotto tickets for the record draw.
Even though none of these German SuperEnalotto enthusiasts who won the competition won the jackpot, this incredible lottery is still common for tourists and citizens of bordering countries to try their luck with SuperEnalotto.
While it’s exciting to win a competition like this and travel to Italy, had they won a prize, they would have had to travel back to Italy using their own money to collect the prize. You cannot claim a SuperEnalotto prize from abroad; instead, you have to claim your prize in person from either a ticket retailer in Italy, one of the lottery operator’s regional offices, or one of the dedicated payment centres.
Purchasing A SuperEnalotto Ticket From Abroad
For those that don’t have plans to visit Italy any time soon, but would still like to buy tickets for this week’s €193 million SuperEnalotto draw, you can do so online.
Your happiness is our priority and our dedicated Customer Support team is online to help with anything you need to improve your playing experience.
Another great feature about playing the SuperEnalotto online is the fact that by using the PlayEuroMillions.com Intelliplay feature, you can set up a rule that if the jackpot is above a certain amount an entry will be played automatically. This way you will never miss out on being part of a record-breaking SuperEnalotto jackpot ever again!
Are SuperEnalotto Winnings from Non-Residents’ Taxed?
It’s important to know that Italy is one of the few European countries to tax lottery winnings. Winnings are subject to 12% tax. This tax rate is imposed regardless of the citizenship of the player – meaning your winnings would be taxed if you purchased a winning ticket in Italy, or if you bought a ticket online.
Another factor to note is that you may be subject to taxation in your own country as well. Revenue laws differ from country to country and in the event of winning a jackpot from another country, it is highly recommended that you contact a financial adviser to ensure your winnings are protected, declared and taxed in the correct way.
SuperEnalotto draws take place every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday at 20:00 CET.
