Different lotteries, different odds, different online lottery players, different strokes. Playing the world most lucrative international lotteries all have their appeal, whether it’s a record-breaking jackpot or a lotto game where the odds are definitely your favour. Let’s take a look as to why you should play the lotto right now…
As lotto players will know by now, Powerball offered up the largest jackpot in history earlier this month. This means that some online lottery players will more than likely now purely dismiss any lotto game with a jackpot under $500 million. But as seasoned lottery players will know, this actually makes no difference, and playing a lottery where the odds are in your favour, makes perfect sense.
If you are wondering where you could find such a lottery, then look no further than tonight’s EuroMillions draw, where not only are the odds fabulous, but the jackpot has rolled well into Superdraw territory!
At least twice a year the EuroMillions lotto game spoils lottery players with a guaranteed 100 million Euro Superdraw, and players from all corners of the globe come out to play. Well, have you seen the jackpot lately? It’s rolled over to a whopping €115 million! All in the name of rollovers.
Even though €115 million may seem like small change in comparison to the record American lotto game, here are a few reasons why you should play this European lotto game right now:
Winnings are tax free:
When you buy a lottery ticket, you're not the only one that hopes you win. If you hit a really big jackpot, you're going to have to pay a really big tax bill. However, in the case of a EuroMillions lottery win on PlayHugeLottos.com, your EuroMillions win will not be taxed. The reason for this is that we purchase the tickets in France. If these lotto tickets were purchased in Spain, Portugal and Switzerland, however, now tax lottery winnings.
Receive a lump-sum pay-out
If you thought the tax side was great news, it gets even better, as the EuroMillions prizes are always paid out in a lump sum, unlike the American lotteries who offer winners a choice between cash prize or taking the annuity option.
Let’s say you play this Wednesday’s $75 million Powerball jackpot and win. If you choose to take the lump sum, you will receive around $47.4 million. This figure is then further reduced by state and federal taxes in the United States.
Great odds of winning
The odds of winning speak from themselves:
EuroMillions: 1 in 116,531,800
Powerball: 1 in 292,201,338
Something else to consider is the fact that the EuroMillions has a jackpot cap of €190 million. This means if the jackpot cap amount is not won, it will be scooped up by a lower prize category. Imagine, winning €190 million and not even matching all the numbers!
