The jackpot is one of the most exciting and discussed topics among gamblers. Of course, the main goal of playing at a casino is to win and not just any win, but the largest, most successful and lucky – the jackpot. There are several cases of especially large winnings in the history of gambling, and we will now deal with them.
Mega Millions and Powerball are part of the Multi-State Lottery Association, the largest network of seven state lotteries in the United States. Accordingly, the largest win of $ 390 million in the Mega Millions lottery was won in 2007 right here. A few years later, in 2011, $ 380 million was ripped off, but this amount was already split between two.
Another American lottery “Powerball” in 2009 delighted the lucky one from South Carolina with a jackpot of $ 260 million. The same lottery brought winnings to several more players – this time it was 211 and 212 million.
In 2012, the same lotteries played a jackpot of $ 656 million, which was distributed among 3 players from different states.
Europe can also please with several interesting facts. For example, the EuroMillions lottery once in October 2010 brought a British player £ 130 million, and a little later the Spaniard won € 126 million.
Another European lottery “SuperEnalotto” has enriched the lucky one from Italy by 148 million euros, and also brought a girl from Spain 123 million euros a little earlier.
In 2012, The Dark Knight slot machine (part of the Mega Moolah slot machine network) brought £ 5,880,000 to a player from Lincolnshire. The same slot network brought over 6,400,000 euros to the Greek in 2009.
As you can see from the examples, the largest jackpots are awarded to people from different countries, at different times and in different games. Of course, the most popular games are lotteries and slot machines, in which the game is as simple as possible and the risk is very high. However, it is thanks to these qualities that lottery and slot machines have always remained the most popular, exciting, and desirable when it comes to jackpots, real excitement, and easy money.
