Earlier in the year PlayHugeLottos.com reported on the biggest lotto jackpots in the world. Since then there has been 3 changes made to this list. We now present an updated list of biggest lotto jackpots in the world... Ever!
Back in August this year we published a list of the top lottery jackpots in the world. 2012 has been a busy year in terms of giant jackpots on offer so the list is now in need of updating.
As usual the biggest jackpots in the world come from North America and Europe. The biggest lotteries in the world are officially:
- Mega Millions
- USA Powerball
Amazing American Dreams
There has been 1 addition to the list of top American lottery jackpots of all time. It should come as no surprise that the recent, record-breaking USA Powerball jackpot from November has climbed to 2nd on the list. The top spot is still occupied by the unbelievable Mega Millions $646 million jackpot from March 2012. This historic jackpot prize was shared by 3 very lucky ticket holders.
If anyone has any doubts about the continued popularity of lottery games they can put those doubts to rest. The 2 biggest Jackpot draws in the world were won in 2012 which tells you only one thing, players are more determined than ever to cut themselves a large slice of lotto pie!

Extravagant European Winnings
European lotteries have gone 1 further than North American counterparts from across the pond. There has been 2 additions to the jackpot list published earlier this year. The top spot is still occupied by the Euromillions record-breaking win of €190 million taken by the Bayford family back in August 2012.
Again, it is interesting to note that of the top 10 biggest European jackpots ever won, 4 of them were won this year! Lotto fever seems to be reaching new heights around the world and the obvious next question is: How much bigger can these jackpots get?
Whether its a record-breaking jackpot or 'merely' a healthy few million Euros, a lotto jackpot win has the amazing ability to change peoples lives for ever. Make this your year of change and bring in the bucks for 2013!
