The Top Lottery Jackpots In The World

2012 will long be remembered by lottery players from around the world. It was the year in which the mighty American Mega Millions lottery rose to a staggering jackpot of $656 million Dollars. Undoubtedly this is the biggest jackpot ever offered by a lottery but what other jackpots have come close to this?

When it comes to sheer mind-blowing, jaw-dropping and knee-bending lottery jackpot amounts there are 4 major lotteries that you cannot ignore:

•    Mega Millions
•    USA Powerball
•    Italian SuperEnaLotto
•    Euromillions

Many people, however, enjoy playing the lower jackpot lotteries because they have better odds. And let’s be honest, even though some jaded lottery players might like to consider a $10 million Dollar jackpot “small” it is still a stupendously large amount of money.

The truth is that there are no small lottery jackpots here at PlayHugeLottos.com – just some with slightly bigger jackpots than others.

Scottish couple, Colin and Chris Weir took home an unbelievable €185 million (US$260 million) on the 12th July 2011. The record stood for a little over a year with the Bayfords now crowned as the biggest Euromillions winners of all time with a €190 million win.

Bigger And Better But There Is More

America and Europe certainly have many more exciting lotteries to offer other than simply the above games, including:

- SuperLotto Plus
- EuroJackpot
- UK National Lottery
- France Loto
- El Gordo

But it's not just America and Europe with a monopoly on exciting lottery games. If you would rather play lotteries from Southern Hemisphere countries then be sure to give the Brazilian Mega Sena and the Australian Oz Lotto a try.

In fact, EVERY game on PlayHugeLottos.com is worth a try because you never know when your lucky day will arrive or what country it will come from!

It was my good fortune to arrive at the $ 700 million MegaMillions Jackpot in America and then to win the maximum amount thus in lottery history.
