Largest Lottery Jackpots of All Time
This week there is a Powerball jackpot worth $350 million up for grabs making it the seventh biggest annuity prize ever in the United States. The cash jackpot, which is worth $222.8 million, is the sixth largest of all time.
The top jackpots in the US invariably come from Mega Millions and the Powerball. Here are some details on the largest of all time. The biggest jackpot ever won was $656 million in the Mega Millions. It was won in March 2012 by three tickets sold in Maryland, Illinois and Kansas. It was also the largest cash jackpot of all time at $471 million.
Not too far behind is the Powerball jackpot of $587.5 million won in November 2012. It was split between two tickets sold in Missouri and Arizona, the cash payout was the largest Powerball payout ever at $384.7 million.
In third place is the Mega Millions jackpot of $390 million won in March 2007 by two tickets sold in Georgia and New Jersey.
If there is no Powerball jackpot winners this week, then it we can expect to see the top three change in the very near future.
