The big Win a Million Pounds jackpot this weekend has to be the Powerball Lottery jackpot. There are a number of large lottery games taking place over Friday and Saturday but the largest of the lot by some distance is Powerball with a $110,000,000 jackpot prize on offer.
Win a Million Pound players who stay outside of the USA can still play the popular multi-state lottery game via our online lottery ticket service. The other large lottery games taking place this weekend are the EuroMillion Lottery game which has a £37,000,000 lottery jackpot. Mega Millions this weekend has the smallest jackpot with a lottery jackpot of $33,000,000 on offer.
It has to be stated that the large USA Lottery games are annuity lottery games. That means that if the winner of the main lottery jackpot selects a cash prize instead of a yearly annuity, a portion of the win is retained by the lottery. With a lottery jackpot of $110,000,000 on offer, the cash prize is an estimated $68,000,000. Winners also need to pay Federal and in some cases State Taxes.
Compare this with the largely tax-free EuroMillion Lottery game that gets paid out as a lump sum. The current jackpot if converted to US Dollars would equal an estimated $60,000,000. This puts it on a par with Powerball and makes it the largest lump sum tax-free lottery game in the world.
