winnersIn May, a couple broke the record for the largest prize ever won by a UK citizen.
They had won 184 million pounds or about 221 million dollars, but their record would not last just a few months later, another winner struck. Unfortunately for us, UK law does not require
winnersto be made public and this one chose to remain anonymous. They're pretty private there and that means we know virtually nothing about them, except the size of the jackpot, obviously. It's the right choice for the winners, but it's sad for us because we don't know who they are or how they spend their new wealth, but here's the little we know that their winning ticket is for the EuroMillions lottery, which is nice.
It's hard to win because you have to match seven numbers to win the jackpot. Remember that Powerball only needs you to match six numbers, so an extra one actually makes it harder to win. There are only 15 people in the UK who have ever won more than a million. pounds in a lottery draw showing that this anonymous winner really got very lucky, the jackpot was a life-changing 195 million British pounds i.e. approximately 235 million dollars, we can only guess who they are and what they did with money, although we do know that you are now richer than Adele and that is quite impressive.
Number five Christine Wellenstein, the Mega Millions lottery started the year with a bang in the form of a massive $425 million jackpot that had been rolled over 27 times since October 2021 before anyone won it. Obviously, everyone wanted to get their hands on that prize, but only one person beat the odds to win it. Christine Wellenstein bought her ticket at her local gas station in Los Angeles County without expecting that she would actually win, but on January 28 all of her numbers were revealed. In the draw she chose to take home the lump sum worth an impressive 292.9 million before taxes.
She was lucky enough to not have to share the jackpot with any other ticket holders, but that doesn't mean she thinks she should keep it. She alone already said that she wants to donate part of her new money to charities locally and globally, maybe she can change the world with her lottery win.

She reached over $502 million, imagine what she can do with all of them. that cash, so who was the lucky jackpot winner? Well there was no winner, there were actually two winning tickets for this drawing. Unfortunately, we don't know much about the owners of any of those super valuable lottery tickets. All we know is that one of the winning tickets was purchased in San Jose, California, and the other in Fort Myers, Florida, those winners chose a pretty good place to live because both states are in a small group of nine states that do not They tax lottery winners, that's a pretty nice bonus on top of their already incredible lock-in, we don't know if they chose an annuity or a lump sum option, but let's assume they went for the lump sum like they do. most lottery winners, if they chose that option.
They will receive about 79.4 million each after paying federal taxes for their victory. It's still an incredible amount of cash if they choose the annuity option. Each one is entitled to 251 million before taxes. Let's hope they don't waste it like so many other lotteries. The winners stay with us to find out if the Mega Millions lottery managed to top this huge jackpot for another drawing in 2022. The
biggestwinners are yet to reach the third January Powerball jackpot. The year is off to a really good start for big Powerball winners. what size jackpot was the giant prize jackpot was worth 632 million at the time which was the seventh largest jackpot in Powerball history after the drawing the lottery announced that there were not one but two winning tickets one had been sold in county Brown Wisconsin and the The other winner was in Sacramento, California.
It was the couple from Wisconsin who came forward to collect their prize first. They are Tammy and Cliff Webster, a married couple. Cliff said he was delighted with her victory because he told Tammy's father that he would always take care of her. he feels that this wind guarantees that he will be able to fulfill that promise without too much stress. The California winner remained a mystery for four months before they finally came forward to claim the prize. The winner was a man named Orlando Zavala Lozano. It seems like he's not giving interviews to the media. is still quite mysterious, we don't know what he does for a living, what he thinks about his big win or what he plans to do with the money, the only thing we do know is that he and the Websters chose the lump sum option which means they currently have the incredible amount of 153.9 million in each of their bank accounts and yes, that after taxes is not bad for a prize they had to share.
Did you play the lottery in 2022? Let us know in the comments what your biggest win was this year. two biggest Mega Millions winners we told you that the Mega Millions lottery could appear on this list again after all, they are known for sometimes breaking records with the size of their jackpots, this one wasn't big enough to match some of the others. records, but it's still pretty impressive, it's actually the fourth largest lottery jackpot in history, it grew and grew because no one had won the jackpot in 29 drawings, but finally, in September, a winning ticket was purchased in Chicago, unfortunately for us, Illinois does.
Lottery winners do not need to reveal their identities and the ticket buyer has chosen to remain anonymous, so we will never know who they are, but we do know a little about them. The first thing we know is that there were not one but two winners. There is only one winning ticket, but it was bought by two friends who agreed to split the money if they won and I'm sure there is more than enough to share because the jackpot is huge. They want the mind-boggling sum of $1.37 billion. We also know the two winners. It took weeks to assemble a team of legal and financial experts before claiming the prize.
That's exactly what Lottery experts suggest you should do, so it looks like they're on the right track. The only other thing we know is that they made the decision to take him home. the lump sum we don't know exactly how much they got after taxes, but we do know that the lottery is paying out a staggering 780.5 million. I don't know about you, but if I had won the lottery with a friend, we would have thrown an epic party, we will never know what these friends did and the biggest lottery jackpot of 2022 goes to the anonymous number one Powerball winner.
This humongous jackpot was not only the largest lottery jackpot won in 2022, but it was also the largest lottery jackpot of all time. It all started with a jackpot of only 20 million which was the reset prize after the previous jackpot in August where the winner took home around 200 million. It's definitely a good win, but it's not even close to the most recent record jackpot after the August win. no one matched all the numbers, we all know what that means, the prize continued to accumulate the bigger the prize, the more people bought tickets, but the size of the jackpot was not the only record set by this win, there was also a record number of rollovers with a whopping 40 drawings with no winner tying another record of 40 drawings that was originally set last year, it's not so surprising that people don't win the jackpot as often as the odds of winning a Powerball jackpot are about 292.2 million to one, but that didn't stop one lucky person from winning the grand prize after a problem caused Monday's drawing to be delayed until Tuesday.
They finally knew the winning numbers. They also knew that one ticket had made them all equal. Someone in California had won this incredible jackpot. 2.04 billion isn't just because it had the largest jackpot in history, it's the only time in history that a jackpot hit the two billion dollar mark, it's also a crazy 400 million bigger That jackpot used to hold the record for being the biggest we've ever been able to. Just guess what it must feel like to be the only winner of a record jackpot, we don't even have the winner to tell us, according to California state law, the winner must reveal his or her identity to collect the giant prize, but a Even though the draw was held at the beginning of November, they have not yet shown up, they have a year to collect the prize and that is when we will finally know who they are.
We know that the ticket was purchased at the Joe's service center convenience store in Altadena, interestingly the store. Owner Joe Chahayad will receive a million dollar bonus for selling the wedding ticket. You're probably wondering how much cash the jackpot winner will actually receive. We have the stats for you if the winner chooses to take the pots like most jackpot winners do. then they will receive just under a billion dollars before taxes, about 997 million, but once taxes are subtracted, including the tax increase at the beginning of next year, they actually take home 628.5 million, which Which is not a bad bank balance, of course, most winners also have to pay state taxes. after federal taxes, but this winner was lucky.
Again, living in California, as we mentioned above, it is one of nine states that does not tax lottery winners; However, if they choose the annuity option, they get the full two billion dollar prize, of course. They will still have to pay taxes on it, but they will receive a whopping 68 million each year from the lottery - that's so much cash that it could count as a jackpot. Normally you would choose lump sum, but in this case you offer the annuity option. So much cash every year it almost seems worth it, tell us in the comments what you do if you want a jackpot like this video then you'll love this one too.
