The highest lottery Jackpot worldwide

With the large lotteries in America and Europe, staggering prizes can be won on a regular basis. More than 100 million is not unusual. The Powerball, the Mega Millions, the EuroMillions and the EuroJackpot have a Jackpot which can increase to a considerable amount.

We list for you the largest Jackpots from the top lotteries worldwide. Look at the dizzying amounts of sometimes hundreds of millions in America, South America, Asia, Europe and Australia.

In 1 case, last January, the limit of 1 billion was even exceeded. This prize of more than one and a half billion American dollars had to be shared amongst 3 winners. For that matter, we don’t believe that these lotto winners would have very many objections to that .

As well as the above-mentioned top 3 in Europe, the Spanish Christmas lottery (Sorteo Extraordinario de Navidad) traditionally resulted in a very considerable sum. The Jackpot in 2012 was € 720,000,000, whereby, incidentally, the pre-printed tickets with 5 figures were issued as many as 180 times. As a result of this, the amount of € 4,000,000 per ticket is not very high. Although we would have loved to have won this. The total sum of € 720,000,000 does indeed remain extraordinarily impressive…
