The Top 24 Lottery Jackpot Wins In The World... Ever!

25-May-2011

So how much can you win should you match all drawn number in one of the world's biggest lottery jackpots? Amounts in excess of $50,000,000 on Powerball or MegaMillions are fairly regular, but truly massive jackpots generate so much interest, that they are all too often won by multiple ticket holders.

How do massive SuperEnaLotto jackpots compare with EuroMillions or OzLotto.

Posted by Reagan (26/05/2011)

I WANT TO WIN ONE OF THESE HUGE JACKPOTS.......THANKS TO PLAYHUGE LOTTOS MY DREAM WILL COME TRUE SOON :-)


Posted by Playhugelottos.com (27/05/2011)

@MAYUR: GOOD QUESTION. NONE OF THE JACKPOTS LISTED ABOVE WERE WON BY PLAYHUGELOTTOS.COM CUSTOMERS. DESPITE THIS, WE PAY OUT TENS OF THOUSANDS OF POUNDS TO THOUSANDS OF WINNERS EVERY WEEK. OUR CONTRIBUTION TO THE TOTAL SALES FIGURES IS HOWEVER SMALL IN COMPARISON TO THE MASSIVE SALES FIGURES ACCROSS EUROPE AND THE UNITED STATES. WE HOPE THIS ANSWERS YOUR QUESTION SATISFACTORILY.

Much I want to profit, smaller profit as well is able. I will rejoice and at her. Prosperity of all!


Posted by Andrzej (31/05/2011)

@Playhugelottos.com: in other words it means you're paying each winner 9 pounds on average ...?


Posted by Casper (2/06/2011)

I think it is high time, after being a member for SIX years, that I do Playhugelottos.com the favor of winning one of the big ones by using their site! LOL


Posted by Marek (2/06/2011)

I think a lot of people would really feel much better if Playhugelottos would also publish such a list of winners. This would make it better for the company since a lot of people fear that they will not win anything, really.


Posted by Mayur (3/06/2011)

@Playhugelottos.com: THANKS FOR YOUR REPLY.. BUT I THINK HERE ARE MORE PLAYER ON PLAYHUGELOTTO OTHER THEN THAT COUNTRY WHERE ACTUAL LOTTERY ARE PLAYING.. SO I THINK OUR POSSIBILITIES COULD BE MORE.. NE WAYS.. I REQUEST YOU ONE THING.. CAN U INSERT ONE MORE COLUMN IN YOUR RESULTS & WINNING PAGE.. WHICH SHOWS THE WINNING NUMBERS OF PLAYHUGELOTTS PLAYER OUT OF TOTAL WINNER.. SO WE CAN GET PROUD ATLIST ONE OF US IS WINNING FROM HERE...


Posted by Elana (4/06/2011)

How is it then possible that none of the plyhugelottos.com customers have never won any jackpot? Is there anything wrong?


Posted by V Anandha (4/06/2011)

I EXPECT I WOULD BE WON AND ONE OF THE LUCKY FELLOW WHO PLAY PLAYHUGELOTTOS.COM THE DREAMS WILL COME SOON AND THE WORLD WILL SEE THANKS PLAY LOTTOS COM

@playhugelottos.com:I fully support Mayur's suggestion ,as a member for the last 3 years and having won no more than 10 pounds at a time it would be encouraging to know which of my fellow members win each week ...


Posted by Orlando (6/06/2011)

Why not multiple draws for example 4 of €15million instead of 1 from €60M. I don't have to win the €60M, €15M is enough for me.


Posted by Casper (7/06/2011)

@Mayur. I agree with you. Playhugelottos.com must provide us with more detailed winning information as it relates to the members of this site. I.e. how much money was won by members and when.


Posted by David (8/06/2011)

If we do not win I think it is because we do not push in correct sets of numbers. We should not fault Playhugelottos.com. A game of lottery is a game of luck. Playhugelottos.com only provides a platform through which we play different lottos over the world more so those of us tens of thousands of miles from host countries. They do not play any part in our losing or our winning. D.D.Y. NYIRENDA


Posted by Marek (12/06/2011)

Well, I dont think anyone is blaming Playhugelottos for not winning, but it would be nice if they would show their winners. This way you do not know anything. I think if Playhugelotto does not provide a regular list of their winners after theses posts then it will be very suspicous and I am not sure whether I would be willing to play through this site any longer, since I do not see any guarantees.


Posted by David (17/06/2011)

Thanks Marek. I think you have raised a pertinent issue here. With internet deals it is difficult whether the transaction is real or not. List of winners more so when winners themselves do not care about disclosing them. However I will still use this website because I do not have strong grounds for doubting them and they have different methods of receiving payment.


Posted by Robert (28/06/2011)

Don't be naive guys. The fact that the site hasn't landed a jackpot doesn't reflect on the site, but rather on your (and my) inability to guess the correct numbers...


Posted by Casper (9/07/2011)

Thank you playuklottery.com for adding a list of recent winnings as requested. Now I cannot wait for MY NAME to appear on that list! Jay!


Posted by Marek (9/07/2011)

AHHHH! You people do not get it. I know that winning the jackpot is up to a person guessing the right numbers, but all I wanted is for this website to publish the winners that win through PlayHugeLottos that is all. They said them selves WE PAY OUT TENS OF THOUSANDS OF POUNDS TO THOUSANDS OF WINNERS EVERY WEEK. I would like them to show just how many winners they had each week, that is all. That would motivate us better since we would see that there is a possibility to win and how much.


Posted by Playhugelottos.com (11/07/2011)

@MAREK @DAVID @CASPER AND OTHERS: THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR FEEDBACK. AS YOU CAN SEE, WE HAVE ADDED A SCROLLING TICKER WITH SOME OF THE MORE RECENT WINNERS DETAILS. NATURALLY, THIS LIST IS NOT COMPREHENSIVE AS THE LOWER THE PRIZE TIER, THE MORE WINNERS WOULD HAVE TO BE DISPLAYED. AN INTERESTING POINT IS THAT AS SOON AS WE POSTED THE CHANGE, WE WERE INUNDATED WITH REQUESTS TO HAVE THEIR WINNING DETAILS REMOVED FROM THE LIST, DESPITE ONLY DISPLAYING THE FIRST LETTER OF WINNERS' LAST NAMES. THIS LIST IS UPDATED AFTER EACH DRAW. OUT OF RESPECT FOR CUSTOMERS' ANONIMITY THIS IS AS FAR AS WE ARE WILLING TO GO WITH REGARD TO PUBLISIHING WINNERS INFORMATION. WE CERTAINLY HOPE THIS COMPROMISE SATISFIES YOUR CURIOSITY.


Posted by Marek (15/07/2011)

Dear Playhugelottos, thank you for your efforts, this is exactly what I wanted to see, that the people are actually winning. Of course you did not have to reveal any names, I was expecting something like when you click on the Results & Winnings tab, but its great anyway. I hope that this will also be more motivating for other users. Thank you.
