Spain – El Gordo
This lottery is by far the most renowned for its massive jackpot payouts and great odds. El Gordo (translated: the fat one) is Spain’s Christmas Lottery that is held once a year during the holiday season and pays out up to 2,5 billion euros annually. In order to play, you need to buy a ticket that will feature 5 digits on it. Anyone who matches their five numbers with the ones drawn will then win a share of the grand total prize. This lottery game is thus refreshingly simple yet at the same time so exciting as you’re never the only one winning.
USA – MegaMillions
If you are a US citizen, you’re in the right place to play the second most renowned lottery game in the world. The great thing about playing the MegaMillions is that it is available almost anywhere to anyone worldwide and all that it requires is that players choose their lucky numbers and purchase a ticket.
There are several ways to further increase your winning odds but the odds of winning this game are already so good, that you may not even need strategies and tools. This US Lottery sensation is held weekly and is able to roll over and increase exponentially if it isn’t won. Please bear in mind that the MegaMillions is subject to taxation depending on where you live so you may want to check your jurisdictions with regard to the tax.
Europe – UK National Lottery
The UK Lotto has a roughly one in 14 million chance of winning. This lottery produces equally high jackpots and is enjoyed worldwide as an international lottery favorite.
