					Top 10 Lotteries From Around the World - A List of Great Lotto Games


If you are someone that does a lot of world traveling, you might be interested in playing great lotteries from
around the world. You don't need to be a resident of the country you are in to be able to win a lotto jackpot.
So, here is a list of the top 10 lotteries from around the world:


Lotto 649: The game is offered throughout Canada and has jackpots ranging from $3.5 million to $50
million. The odds of winning the jackpot are approximately 1-in-14-million. But the best part is that lottery
winnings in Canada, unlike most other world lotteries, are tax-free. That means you keep everything that
you win (You might have to pay tax in your home country, however.


EuroMillions: In 2009, a EuroMillions jackpot of $163 million was paid out to one woman in Spain, making
it the biggest lump-sum lottery winner of all time (There were bigger Powerball winners, but those were
annuity-payments and not lump sum). This is a great game to play for big money. Odds of hitting the
jackpot are approximately 1-in-76-million.


Mega Millions: Offered in select U.S. states, jackpots can reach into the hundreds of millions of dollars
level, but the odds are astronomical. Probability of winning the jackpot is approximately 1-in-175-million.

million, are even worse than Mega Millions.

shot at winning a million dollars.


Cash 5: Many variations of the game in certain U.S. states, but a commonality of good odds, usually less
than 1-in-999,999, with jackpots in the hundreds of dollars range. It's easier to win this game than the major
