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
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.
