Which is a shame, because many do offer some incredible winning odds, and for far less financial outlay. Well wonder no more. In the table below you'll find a full list of lotteries with all their record jackpots. So, now that you know the biggest jackpot each lottery has paid out it's time to see how they stack up in order to determine which one offers the best lottery odds.
The below table represents the overall odds of winning any prize. As you can see the Irish Lotto is a decent all-rounder; it might not have anywhere near the biggest jackpots, but in terms of prize odds it's in the centre. Still, compare that with EuroMillions, which is third both in terms of jackpot sizes and odds of winning any prizes, and it's plain to see why it remains Europe's favourite lottery. The absolute best any-prize odds of any of our lotteries is the French lotto, with any-prize odds of 6: In second place we have Austrian Lotto, another popular choice due to its low price, good any-prize and jackpot odds the same as the Irish Lotto was before the changes , and added bonus game.
At the very opposite end of the scale, meanwhile, we have Brazil's Mega Sena. Though it should be noted that this lottery only has three large prize tiers in total.
If you haven't had much success playing the lottery in the past, it may be that you were making one of the common mistakes which makes a win less likely. Check out the following video where we outline the top 7 tips for lottery success! Go on, be honest, you just scrolled right down here didn't you? I'm basing that assumption, not on my psychic abilities, but rather solid statistics. What's not as widely known, however, are the exact odds of hitting the jackpot - which is exactly why we've created the following table.
The sweet spot for many lies in the centre, which is why lotteries such as the Irish and Polish lotteries are so popular. Lottoland players are also starting to play the Swedish Lotto and the Austrian Lotto since they offer large jackpots, at reasonable odds, for an even more reasonable price. There are many factors to keep in mind when choosing the right lottery for you.
The good news is that, at Lottoland, we go the extra mile to ensure our customers are as well informed about each lottery as possible.
