Comparison of Large Lotteries (Largest Jackpots)

After comparing the payout percentage of large lotteries taking into account taxes (if any), we would like to show the largest jackpots observed in these lotteries taking into account the following:

1) Cash payment (US lotteries are marketed using annuity values)
2) Net of taxes (if any), highest personal tax rate of 35% assumed for US lotteries
3) Conversion into USD (using year-end exchange rates obtained from here)

Accordingly the values are not comparable with those seen on other sites (see here and here).

The largest lottery jackpot in 2012 was Mega Millions (USD 656 million annuity value gross of tax), but both in 2013 and 2014 EuroMillions had the highest jackpot of USD 258.7 million and USD 230.9 million respectively.

For average jackpots, EuroMillions has the highest numbers for all three years.

  1. Very informative comparison. I was recommended that reading thelotter review I would find out everything I need. There was certain comparison but nothing of the kind. Thanks for sharing this handy info. I'm going to choose EuroMillions to try luck.
