In recent times, lottery players worldwide have been given the opportunity to play the biggest international lotto games through lotto sites. They can try their lucky numbers at any lottery, yet there is a problem. Which games should they choose? Which one has the best chances? To help you decide, read on about the top 5 international lotto games arranged using the one criterion we are all interested in – the biggest jackpot.
1. Powerball – £1.119 billion
This lottery game basically promises to make all your dreams come true and all you have to do is guess the numbers. Jackpot winners need to guess the five regular numbers drawn from a range of 1-69 and the Powerball number between 1 and 26.
The Powerball easily reached the top of the list as multiple rollovers allowed its jackpot to reach an astonishing amount of over a billion pounds back in January 13th, 2016. You just need to make sure you’re not getting too excited, as the chances of hitting this lottery’s main prize are one in 292 million, and then some.
2. MegaMillions – £419. 8 million
MegaMillions is the second US lotto game that can make your blood rush. That is, if you get the winning number combination. The way it is played resembles Powerball, but it differs when it comes to the number range. Namely, the five regular numbers at MegaMillions are drawn from a range of 1-75, while the special Mega Ball is selected from 1 to 15.
This jackpot took up first position back in March 30th, 2012 up until Powerball took the lead. In any case, MegaMillions can offer you a slightly better chance of getting any prize, but since players are mainly interested in the jackpot, you should know that the odds are 1 in 258 million.
3. EuroMillions – £161 million
The third position is occupied by a game from the old continent, EuroMillions. It has the similar structure as MegaMillions, hence the distinct name. Again, players need to guess five numbers from 1 to 50, but what is interesting is that there are two additional numbers known as ‘Lucky Stars’. These range from 1 to 11.
EuroMillions’ jackpot has never reached a record-high amount, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t offer a rewarding experience altogether.
4. SuperEnaLotto – £125.7 million
The previous lottery game on the list originated from Europe, but this one has been specifically located in Italy for many years before turning to the international global market. The jackpot is won by simply selecting six numbers from 1 to 90.
SuperEnaLotto holds a different record than the first two games on our list – longest jackpot rollover due to the fact that its jackpot is not capped.
5. EuroJackpot – £63.5 million
The odds of winning EuroJackpot’s main prize are somewhere around 1:95,000,000, which quickly turned the youngest European lottery into a popular phenomenon. The same pattern of 5 numbers 1-50 and 2 additional between 1 and 10 applies here.
Since it only appeared in March 2012, pay attention to this lottery game on your chosen website.
