Powerball

Giant Powerball Jackpots

The ‘other’ giant, multi-state lottery from America! The US Powerball may take 2nd place to Mega Millions when it comes to record jackpots but they have certainly had enough giant jackpots to be considered one of the biggest lottery games in the WORLD!

The highest jackpot ever won on the Powerball was a massive $365 million. This ticket holds the honour of being the biggest lottery jackpot ever won by a single ticket, held by 8 co-workers from a Nebraska meat-processing plant.

Andre The Giant

Although not technically American (he is actually French), Andre Roussimoff rose to fame via the American Wrestlemania tournaments. At one point this giant of a man was the highest paid wrestler in the world and his ongoing feud with wrestling legend Hulk Hogan was legendary. He is also known to have consumed 119 350 ml cans of beer (over 41 litres) in 6 hours. And just in case you were wondering how big he was... height: 7ft 5in, weight: 270kg

The San Francisco Giants

Originally known as the New York Giants, the team moved to San Francisco California in 1958. They are one of the oldest baseball teams and have won the most number of games of any team in the history of American baseball. In fact, they have won more games than any other North American professional sports team.

As with many professional sports the Giants has its fair share of players earning really, really big money! In 2007 Barry Zito signed the most lucrative contract ever for a baseball pitcher, a seven year deal worth $126 million.

Giant Cowboy Boots


Americans are sometimes accused of being too big for their boots. Well it may not surprise some of you to learn that the biggest pair of boots does indeed come from America. San Antonio , Texas to be exact. The giant pair of boots goes by the nickname “Giant Justins” and they get decorated with Christmas lights over the festive season.

Where’s the horse?

Giant Redwoods

The giant California Redwood trees are the tallest natural organisms on earth, the tallest known example coming in at a height of 115 metres. Not only do they grow incredibly tall but they also live incredibly long. The average age for a Californian Redwood is 1,800 – 2,700.

If giants from California excite you then be sure to check out the Californian SuperLotto Plus. It’s well worth a go at its current $13 million USD jackpot!
