Biggest Jackpots of All Time

Biggest Jackpots of All Time

Ranking third on the list of biggest jackpots of all times is the US Powerball jackpot. After a long rollover streak that pushed the jackpot to $590.5 million, a single ticket won the big prize on 18th May, 2013. The winning numbers for that draw were 10, 13, 14, 22, and 52, with the Powerball 11. The ticket holder, Gloria MacKenzie, received a $370.9 million cash prize after local taxes!

The second largest jackpot to date happened on 17th December, 2013. Closing the year with a fantastic first place prize was the $648 million Mega Millions jackpot that was won with the numbers 8, 14, 17, 20, and 39, with the Mega Ball 7. Two lucky ticket holders from California and Georgia were the winners and split the $347.6 million cash prize between them!

The biggest jackpot in lottery history is the $656 million Mega Millions jackpot on 30th March, 2012. The winning numbers were 2, 4, 23, 38, and 46, with the Mega Ball 23, and they earned lucky winners from Kansas, Illinois, and Maryland, the grand jackpot!

Some jackpots are shared between a few lucky people picking the right numbers, but the luckiest of all are those hold the sole winning ticket. theLotter presents the three biggest single ticket winners in lottery history!

Opening our top three list is a US Powerball winner from South Carolina. The $399.4 million jackpot win was created on 18th September, 2013, with the numbers 7, 10, 22, 32, 35, and Powerball 19. The single ticket that won that jackpot and stopped the rollover streak came from a lottery player in South Carolina who chose to remain anonymous. While the cash value of that jackpot was $223 million, it is not known whether the winner chose to take the amount in a lump sum, or cash.

The second largest jackpot sum won by a single person is a recent one – on 19th February, 2014, the US Powerball finished a long rollover streak when the numbers 1, 17, 35, 49, 54, and the Powerball 34 rolled up, bringing the jackpot to a halt at $425.3 million! The winner, a ticket holder from California, has yet to come forward. When they do, they will walk home with $242.2 million in cash!

The world’s biggest lottery winner is Gloria MacKenzie, the woman who won the world’s third biggest lottery jackpot. While nearly-similar and bigger jackpots have been claimed both before and after her win, she stands out due to the fact that her prize was shared with no others, earning her the $370.9 million cash prize in full!
