What are the biggest lottery jackpots in the world?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.

Is there such a thing as a small jackpot win?Some lotteries live their lives very much under the spotlight! With eye-watering jackpots they are the darlings of the international lottery community.
Irresistible jackpot sizes
It is hard to resist a jackpot sitting at 100 million Euros, or how about an American super-sized Megamillions jackpot of $300 million? With such massive jackpots on offer it is little wonder that these lotteries are so difficult to ignore.
But not all lotteries can be a Euromillions or a Megamillions! And some lotto's are happy to never be an American Powerball, SuperLotto Plus or even an Italian SuperEnaLotto!
Not the biggest, but certainly big enough!
There are some 'middleweight' contenders for the crown. Closer inspection reveal a number of lotteries that never pass the 100 million mark yet do often provide quite sizable amounts in jackpot offerings. The UK Lottery, in fact one of the most popular lottery in the world with it's 6/49 format, has climbed to 42 million Pounds before. Not bad at all!
And the two lotteries from Down Under in Australia, The Oz Lotto and Australian Powerball have both quietly reached some very significant jackpot sizes themselves. The Oz Lotto with its biggest jackpot so far sitting at 68 million Pounds and the Australian Powerball coming in at slightly less with a biggest recorded jackpot of 51 million Pounds!
Are smaller jackpots easier to win?
So, if these three lotteries are still making big waves in the spotlight, who are the smaller, 'camera shy' lotteries? The ones content to live a quiet life in the region of only a few million Pounds?
El Gordo lottery (Gordo de la Primitiva)
Starting at a minimum amount of 5 million Euros, the El Gordo jackpot won't stop rolling-over until it is won! The highest jackpot won to date is a very respectable 25 million Euros.
In addition to the Jackpot prize there are eight other tiers of prizes available to be won in the Sunday El Gordo draw!
Still on the European continent we move to France where the France Loto (know locally as 'Loto Francaise') is giving players the chance to win sizable amounts of cash! The France Loto Jackpot will start at 2 million Euros and rolls over a maximum of 34 times before it has to be won. The biggest jackpot win so far has been 18 million Euros!
So here we have two lotteries that are very big in their local countries, and are content to let the other bigger lotteries steal some of the international limelight.
Inviting a big lottery win
The truth of course is that while certain lotto's may be first on the wish lists of most people, if something smaller and quieter happened to show up, no one would complain! In fact, I think most people might actually celebrate... for the rest of their lives!
