It’s undeniable that the Internet has made a huge impact on everyday life. From communication to commerce, so many things may now be done online. Lotteries from all over the world are actually open for you without your even leaving your personal computer seat – all because of the Internet. Rather than staying with the stale old lotteries in your town, it’s simple to play at bigger lotteries in different countries with even larger jackpots. Here are a few of the jackpot hotspots from all over the lotto-playing globe.
It’s not really a far-off statement to say that every online lottery website in cyberspace now offers bets for El Gordo, the greatest lottery in Spain and arguably among the largest on the planet. Whereas other lotteries have prizes to the tune of countless millions 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 a very enticing lottery game indeed.
You won’t, however, be getting all those digits in your banking account should your bets get drawn. In this Spanish game, you purchase shares of cards (usually in tenths) that have numbers on them. After this you wait for the draw and cross your fingers that the numbers are certain to get drawn.
One of many biggest lottery games in Europe, it is a good game to think about if you’ll be playing in online lotteries. The EuroMillions game holds ruay many of the record-breaking jackpots from the last few years, most notable of which will be Dolores McNamara’s EUR115 million (about $152 million) windfall – the greatest individual payout on the planet 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.
Although taxes and deductions consume 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 the prize checks. The 2 winners of the greatest Mega Millions jackpot currently – an advertised $390 million – as an example, would split the after-tax prize of about $140 million. Powerball prizes aren’t so far off, with the greatest jackpot (under the prior Powerball brand) at $363 million.
Even when it gives relatively middle-ground sums, this Italian game is another online lottery favorite because it always yields tax-free lump-sum prizes. Put simply, the advertised amount is strictly what you’ll get in case you happen to truly have the jackpot-winning ticket. Besides, there has been many occasions when the SuperEnalotto gave out prize amounts which were very definately not measly. Its October 2008 EUR100 million (about $127 million) jackpot, as an example, inspired an Italy-wide lotto-betting frenzy.
There’s a lot of lotto money to be won on both sides of the Atlantic. Given 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.
