The numbers you pick to play has a large influence on whether or not you walk away as a millionaire. But how does your address play a part of it all?

What lottery should you play based on where you live?

We’re always reminding our players that every lottery number sequence has an equal chance of winning the jackpot, but did you know that some countries seem to be luckier than others? Let’s find out which lottery you should play based on where you live.

Fast facts

Surely location alone can’t influence some countries having more lottery winners than others right? That’s right! Here are a few fast facts on that:

  • People are loyal to their country. Lottery players tend to play their national lottery whether or not they have access to international ones.
  • Countries with a higher population count tend to have more lottery winners.
  • Superdraws equal super ticket sales. When EuroMillions has a Superdraw, locals are more likely to buy tickets.



Living in Germany? Then EuroJackpot is the lottery for you! Since their initial launch, Germany stands out for the number of lottery winners that have walked away with the title of becoming a lottery winner. With 16 jackpot winners coming from Germany, this country holds 45.7% of all EuroJackpot winnings.

Finland comes in at second place with residents holding 28% of all EuroJackpot jackpots. Add your name to the list of winners, play EuroJackpot now.

Powerball and Mega Millions


Are you ready to be shocked? USA holds the record for most winners of both Powerball and Mega Millions. Didn’t see that one coming did you?

13 out of the 25 highest wins in Powerball are USA residents. Besides the opening jackpot of $40 million, USA locals are devoted to their blue and red. Besides Powerball winners coming from the US, Mega Millions winners also have blue and red flowing through their veins.

El Gordo

El Gordo

The Christmas Raffle, El Gordo de Navidad, is one of the world’s most loved raffles. With a prize pool of a gigantic €2.38 billion, it’s easy to see why.

Much like the other lotteries we’ve already looked at, the host country holds the most winners. Taking place in Spain, it’s the Spaniards walking away with most of the prizes for this raffle. Besides the chance to win billions, El Gordo is also a cultural phenomenon during the Christmas festive season in Spain. This results in locals planning on buying raffle tickets through the year and then buying as many as they can.

Don’t let these stats hold you back though, El Gordo has winners from over 140 countries. Get your tickets while you still can, play El Gordo now.
