For all you big lottery jackpot chasers out there I am sure you have often asked yourself the question: which lotteries have provided the biggest return in terms of a single jackpot win?
Do the popular American lotteries: Megamillions, Powerball and SuperLotto Plus lead the way or is there a smaller lottery that has surprised everyone with a big payout?
A list for lottery checkers
A recent lottery news article on www.playhugelottos.com listed the Top 24 jackpot wins of all time from across the world. The list will not be a surprise to lottery checkers out there as all of the biggest jackpots from around the world can be found on the comprehensive list.
American Lotteries lead the list
The top eight positions on the list are occupied by the two big inter-state lotteries from the USA, Megamillions and Powerball! The world’s largest annuitized jackpot ever won was $390 million on the Megamillions. The biggest jackpot won by one person (no multiple ticket wins or syndicate wins) was a jackpot amount of $340 million on the Powerball.
Big Euro lottery jackpots
The biggest ever non-US jackpot winning was €183.5 million won on the Euromillions. The prize was split amongst three ticket holders. Following very close behind the Euromillions is the Italian SuperEnaLotto with a massive jackpot win of €177.7 million. The prize was unfortunately split between seventy people.
Big lottery jackpots bringing up the rear
Other countries and lotteries that have produced big lottery jackpots are the UK National Lottery (£42 million jackpot), the German National Lottery (€37.6 million), the Grand Lotto 6/55 (Asia's largest prize - €13 million), the Brazilian Mega-Sena Lottery (R$145 million – South America’s largest jackpot win) and the Australian Oz Lotto (AUS $106 million – shared by two people).
Buy lotto tickets and take your chance
Reading some of the above winning lottery jackpot amounts seems unreal. The jackpot amounts defy belief but amazingly it is true – real people win this real money! What the lottery winners do with the cash after their big lottery jackpot wins is another story but one thing is clear, you have to be in it to win it.
You can be in it by going to www.playhugelottos.com and getting your tickets for many of the above lotteries like Megamillion, Powerball, SuperEnaLotto, Euromillions, the UK National Lottery, Oz Lotto and other big jackpot lotteries like the El Gordo, the France Loto, SuperLotto Plus and the Australian Powerball.
