Rather than staying with the stale old lotteries locally, now you can play at bigger lotteries in numerous countries with even larger jackpots. Here are a few of the jackpot hotspots from throughout the lotto-playing globe.
It’s not a far-off statement to express that every online lottery website in cyberspace now offers bets for El Gordo, the greatest lottery in Spain and arguably one of the largest on the planet. Whereas most other lotteries have prizes to the tune of a huge selection of countless dollars, El Gordo advertises that it has around $3 billion in prizes to award. Add that to the tax-free lottery systems of Europe, and you’ve got yourself a very enticing lottery game indeed.
You won’t, however, be getting all those digits in your bank account should your bets get drawn. In this Spanish game, you buy shares of cards (usually in tenths) that have numbers on them. Afterward you wait for the draw and cross your fingers that the numbers can get drawn.
One of the biggest lottery games in Europe, it’s a good game to take into account if you will be playing in online lotteries. The EuroMillions game holds ruay lots of the record-breaking jackpots from the previous couple of years, most notable of that will be Dolores McNamara’s EUR115 million (about $152 million) windfall – the greatest individual payout on the planet to date. It is also worth playing being an online lottery because all prizes in the EuroMillions game are awarded lump-sum and tax-free, making your win much, much sweeter.
Although taxes and deductions digest a great chunk – a majority, in fact – of Mega Millions and Powerball jackpots, a few of the bigger jackpot winners are still left with noteworthy amounts on their prize checks. The 2 winners of the biggest Mega Millions jackpot to date – an advertised $390 million – for example, would split the after-tax prize of approximately $140 million. Powerball prizes aren’t so far off, with the greatest jackpot (under the last Powerball brand) at $363 million.
Even if it gives relatively middle-ground sums, this Italian game is another online lottery favorite since it always yields tax-free lump-sum prizes. Quite simply, the advertised amount is strictly what you’ll receive in case you happen to have the jackpot-winning ticket. Besides, there were many occasions when the SuperEnalotto gave out prize amounts that were very definately not measly. Its October 2008 EUR100 million (about $127 million) jackpot, for example, inspired an Italy-wide lotto-betting frenzy.
There’s a lot of lotto money to be won on both sides of the Atlantic. Since online lotteries are very widespread and well-established, you are able to think less of national boundaries and focus more on just getting that multi-million dollar (or Euro) prize.
