It’s everyone’s dream to win the lottery. Having so much money you don’t even know what to do with it–now THAT sounds nice. All you have to do is pick six numbers, right? It shouldn’t be THAT hard.

Well, think again.

According to the Lottery’s website, you have a 1 in 302,575,350 chance to win the Jackpot. Sounds impossible, no? Well to these lucky individuals, it was anything BUT impossible. Sweepstakes casino sites definitely offer you more chances to win cash prizes online, but nothing pays out jackpots anywhere nearly as big as lotteries - don't believe me?

Here are the 10 biggest lottery winners in the history of the US Lottery:

  1. $1.586 billion, Powerball, Jan. 13, 2016 (three tickets, from California, Florida, and Tennessee)
  2. $1.537 billion, Mega Millions, Oct. 23, 2018 (one ticket, from South Carolina)
  3. $1.337 billion, Mega Millions, July. 31, 2022 (one ticket, Illinois)
  4. $1.05 billion, Mega Millions, Jan. 22, 2021 (one ticket, from Michigan)
  5. $768.4 million, Powerball, March 27, 2019 (one ticket, from Wisconsin)
