World's biggest Lottery jackpots

Watching the Euromillions Lottery jackpot roll over five times and seeing the £90 million jackpot available has made the team at World Lottery wonder if this is the world’s biggest lottery jackpot of the week so we thought we’d take a look at all the lottery jackpots on offer around the world this week and see what’s hot and what’s not! Usually the big American jackpots put ours in the shade and have been known to get above $300 million but what are they now, let’s take a look at what’s on offer around the world.

When the UK National Lottery started fifteen years ago, Britons never knew anything about lotteries and £1 million seemed like a massive amount of money. Now however, we know all about the world lottery draws and some of them certainly leave our own home grown lottery in the shade.
