It’s undeniable that the Internet has made a massive effect on everyday life. From communication to commerce, so several things can now be done online. Lotteries from throughout the world are now actually open to you without your even leaving your personal computer seat – all because of the Internet. In place of staying with the stale old lotteries in your town, it’s simple to play at bigger lotteries in various countries with even larger jackpots. Here are some of the jackpot hotspots from throughout the lotto-playing globe.
El Gordo (Spain)
It’s not really a far-off statement to state that each online lottery website in cyberspace now offers bets for El Gordo, the largest lottery in Spain and arguably one of many largest on the planet. Whereas almost every other lotteries have prizes to the tune of a huge selection of an incredible number of dollars, El Gordo advertises so it has as much as $3 billion in prizes to award. Add that to the tax-free lottery systems of Europe, and you’ve got yourself an extremely enticing lottery game indeed.
You won’t, however, be getting dozens of digits in your bank account should your bets get drawn. In this Spanish game Lottovip, you purchase shares of cards (usually in tenths) that have numbers on them. You then watch for the draw and cross your fingers that the numbers are certain to get drawn.
One of the biggest lottery games in Europe, it is a good game to take into account if you will be playing in online lotteries. The EuroMillions game holds many of the record-breaking jackpots from the previous few years, most notable of which will be Dolores McNamara’s EUR115 million (about $152 million) windfall – the largest individual payout in the world to date. It’s also worth playing as an online lottery because all prizes in the EuroMillions game are awarded lump-sum and tax-free, making your win much, much sweeter.
Mega Millions (Multi-state, US) and Powerball (Multi-state, US)
Although taxes and deductions digest a great chunk – a majority, in fact – of Mega Millions and Powerball jackpots, some of the bigger jackpot winners are remaining with noteworthy amounts on the prize checks. Both winners of the greatest Mega Millions jackpot to date – an advertised $390 million – for instance, would split the after-tax prize of about $140 million. Powerball prizes aren’t so remote, with the largest jackpot (under the prior Powerball brand) at $363 million.
Even if it provides 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 exactly what you’ll get in case you happen to really have the jackpot-winning ticket. Besides, there have been many times when the SuperEnalotto gave out prize amounts that were very definately not measly. Its October 2008 EUR100 million (about $127 million) jackpot, for instance, inspired an Italy-wide lotto-betting frenzy.
There’s a lot of lotto money to be won on both parties of the Atlantic. Now that online lotteries are so widespread and well-established, you can think less of national boundaries and focus more on just getting that multi-million dollar (or Euro) prize.
