America has often been called the land of plenty. It’s the place you go to dream big and to win even bigger. With good reason too, America is well known for giving the world all things larger-than-life and oversized. It is in fact the land of GIANTS!
In keeping with the American Dream theme on PlayHugeLottos.com let’s take a look at some of America’s favourite giants:
Giant Mega Millions Jackpots
As the premier lottery ticket site on the net we would be remiss to not start our discussion mentioning the giant Mega Millions lottery. No stranger to massive jackpot amounts, earlier this year Mega Millions made history when it offered a record-breaking $656 million jackpot. Three lucky ticket holders shared in this dream prize.
Giant Ball Of Twine
Small town America is known to house many very big things. Case in point, Cawker City in Kansas, which holds the honour of having the largest (and heaviest) ball of sisal twine in the world. Every August the town holds a “Twine-a-thon” and adds more twine to the ball.
Current estimates put the balls measurement at 8,111 kg (17,886 pounds), a circumference of 40 feet (12 metres), and a length of 7,801,766 feet (2,377,978 metres). Wow, talk about a “Power ball”.
The New York Giants
The NY Giants are one of the longest-running American Football teams having been admitted into the NFL in 1925. They rank 3rd amongst all NFL franchises with a total of eight NFL titles. This team brings in big money through ticket sales along with major sponsors such as Gatorade and Toyota.
The Giants franchise is currently estimated to be worth $1.3 billion. This ranks them as the 4th most valuable franchise in the NFL and the 9th most valuable professional sports franchise in the world.
They Might Be Giants
Popular American alternative band ‘They Might Be Giants’ are probably best known for their 2002 hit song “Boss of Me” which became the theme tune for popular sitcom ‘Malcolm In The Middle’. The band has received 2 Grammy awards and sold over 4 million albums.
A Giant Talking Cow
Meet ‘Chatty Belle’, the world’s largest talking cow. This bovine behemoth can be found grazing happily in Neilsville, Wisconsin. Visitors will be regaled with a comprehensive and informative monologue from the cow including suggestions to try the local cheeses.
Things from the States are always bigger which is why we chose a USA theme for our latest competition. Because we believe bigger is BETTER!
