If you have ever asked yourself the question, “What is the world’s largest lottery Jackpot ever?” then you are not alone.

While we can’t tell you exactly what has been won, we can tell you that the biggest jackpot was won in Asia. This jackpot was worth over RMB570 million, or about US$90.3 million.
This record-breaking jackpot was split among three winners. The first winner was a single mother from South Carolina. The other two winners came from Illinois and Texas. The prize was split equally among the three winners of the second-place lottery jackpot in South Carolina. It was the first time that anonymous lottery winners could be revealed. In addition, the winner’s name was not made public. The second lottery winner claimed her prize on behalf of a trust.
The second-largest jackpot was won in January 2016. The Powerball jackpot was $1.6 billion in January 2016. It was the largest lottery windfall in U.S. history. The jackpot has since been growing since a single ticket sold in Florida won $286 million in early June. There have been 38 drawings with no grand prize winner. A number of other records were broken and the jackpot is currently worth a staggering PS1.586 billion.
The US Powerball game has had the largest jackpot ever won. The jackpot was $1.586 billion, and was split between three winners.

A number of people have since won the jackpots. And they are just the start of their lucky journey to fortune. It would be incredible to be one of them.
