Unlike in the United States, where lottery wins are taxed, European jackpots are generally tax-free (the lotteries themselves are taxed in other ways) and jackpots are paid in a lump sum. For example, in the United Kingdom’s National Lottery, wagers are split between the game operator Camelot Group and the government, with Camelot distributing its share among prizes, operating costs, profit, Camelot’s ‘good causes’ programme, with the remainder going to the government as value-added tax (VAT) due.

Cash 5 is a $1-per-play draw game, where players must match from 2-5 of their 5 selected numbers from a field of 45 in order to win. Numbers are drawn 7 nights a week.
Quick Draw is daily; games cost $1 each. Players choose 10 numbers from 1-80. The Lottery draws 20 numbers. Matching any 10 of the 20 numbers wins $300,000. This game is very similar to Keno.
Hoosier Lotto was the first Indiana lottery game. The draw held on Wednesday and Saturdays, and uses a 6/46 matrix. The jackpots begin at $1 million; after two drawings without a winner, the jackpot increases by $100,000 per draw. Games cost $2 each. For an extra $1, the add-on feature called +Plus add one more chance to win $1 million.
The Hoosier lottery joined Cash4Life on September 19, 2016. (The game also is available in Florida, Georgia, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and Virginia.)
Players choose 5 of 60 numbers in one field, and 1 of 4 green «Cash Ball» numbers in the second field. Live drawings are held on Monday and Thursday evenings at 9pm Eastern Time on Livestream. The top prize (win or share) $1,000-per-day-for-life. Second prize is $1,000-per-week-for-life.
On October 13, 2009, the Mega Millions consortium and MUSL reached an agreement in principle to cross-sell Mega Millions and Powerball in U.S. lottery jurisdictions. On January 31, 2010, the Hoosier Lottery began selling Mega Millions tickets.
Since 1990, the Hoosier Lottery has been a MUSL member. Powerball began in 1992. Powerball’s jackpots currently start at $40 million; it is drawn Wednesday and Saturday nights.
Mix & Match
Mix & Match was drawn on Tuesday and Friday evenings. For each Mix & Match ticket, players received three lines of five numbers each; one play cost $2. Five numbers from 1-50 were drawn. There were multiple ways of winning. Players could have matched the 5 numbers across a three line set to win up to $5,000; or matched all five numbers on a single line to win $200,000. The game was retired on August 22, 2014.
With a cost of $2 per play, Poker Lotto is a combination of both instant and draw games. All picks are computer generated «quick picks», as the first half of the game is won by the player being «dealt» a winning poker hand on their ticket. (Pair of Jacks or better, grand prize $5,000). Regardless of a win or loss on the instant game, the player’s ticket is eligible for the nightly draw, where the player’s cards must match at least 2 of the drawn cards in order to win. (Grand prize $250,000). Poker Lotto began selling tickets on August 25, 2013. The game’s end date is unknown.
All lottery winnings are subject to Federal taxation (automatically reported to the Internal Revenue Service if the win is at least $600); many smaller jurisdictions also levy taxes. The IRS requires a minimum withholding of 25% of the prize (minus the wager) of any gambling win in excess of $5,000. However, the net for a major prize often is misleading; winners often owe the IRS upon filing a return because the Federal withholding was below the winner’s tax obligations. Nonresident U.S. lottery winners have 30% of winnings of at least $600 withheld.
While the largest lottery prizes in the early history of U.S. state lotteries were «annuity-only», these lotteries gradually introduced a «cash option» for these games.
All prizes listed below are reported as the pre-withholdings amount, as this is taxable income the player must report on their returns to be subject to taxation. Jackpots and jackpot shares listed below are annuity amounts (and the cash value.)
For various reasons, an annuitized jackpot can have a higher cash value than a larger annuity with a lower cash value. Examples include the annuity structure of various games: while Mega Millions’ and Powerball’s annuity option each are 30 annual payments, Mega Millions’ annuity payments increase 5 percent yearly, while Powerball increases 4 percent yearly; this makes the Mega Millions’ annuity structure somewhat more «inflated».

Spain’s Sorteo Extraordinario de Navidad (Spanish Christmas Lottery) is generally considered to be the world’s largest lottery game, with the largest first prize/jackpot. In 2012, the first prize was €720 million (then US$941.8 million; $1.058 billion in 2020 dollars). The total prize pool in 2012 was €2.52 billion (US$3.297 billion; $3.704 billion in 2020 dollars). The tickets for this drawing have pre-printed five-digit numbers, with each set of numbers sold multiple times in series. For example, a ticket with the number «00001» was printed 180 times under different series numbers. Moreover, each series is divided into 10 décimos (tenths in English), which are the individual tickets available for purchase. This results in the top prize being split by a very big number of winners usually from different regions of Spain. The 2011 top prize of €720 million was paid out as €4 million (US$5.2 million) to each of the 180 tickets (or €400,000 for each décimo) with the number 58268. In 2016, the total prize pool was $2.310 billion (US$2.414 billion)

Winning Powerball Numbers For February 11, 2015 Drawing …
Tickets in North Carolina, Puerto Rico and Texas matched all six numbers to win the Powerball lottery on Wednesday, The Associated Press reported.. The winning numbers for the Feb. 11, 2015 drawing were: 11, 13, 25, 39, 54 and the Powerball was 19.
In early American history, legislators commonly established lotteries to fund schools, roads, and other public works. The government of the Indiana Territory in 1807 chartered Vincennes University, authorizing it to raise up to $20,000 in a lottery, to provide for a library and other facilities. The lottery was a failure; after a year, those few tickets that had been sold were recalled. Another lottery was authorized in 1810 to raise $1,000 to buy books for a library in Vincennes, but it was unsuccessful. Another was authorized in 1818 for the Jeffersonville Ohio Canal Company to raise $100,000, but it only brought in $2,536.
The 1840s and 1850s saw a general movement against lotteries in the United States, partly on moral grounds, and partly due to a backlash against legislative corruption. The Indiana adopted, with little debate, a clause that «no lottery shall be authorized; nor shall the sale of lottery tickets be allowed».
Vincennes University moved to revive its lottery in 1879, arguing successfully in a test case before the Indiana Supreme Court that, under the Contracts Clause, the lottery provision of the 1807 charter could not be revoked, even by a constitutional ban. The U.S. Supreme Court soon rejected a similar argument in Stone v. Mississippi, but Vincennes was able to run its lottery as a policy game, contracted out to a group of experienced lottery operators from Kentucky, for over a year before it was ruled unlawful in 1883.
In 1988, state voters approved by 62 percent a constitutional amendment lifting the ban. Indiana legislators authorized the state lottery, along with parimutuel betting on horse racing, in May 1989. The first scratch-off game, Hoosier Millionaire, went on sale in October. Lotto Cash, the first online game, began in April 1990.
Record in-house jackpot
The drawing on November 7, 2007 had a jackpot of $54.5 million, its largest jackpot ever. Retired steel worker Peter Gilbert of East Chicago, Indiana chose the cash option of $40.4 million rather than the 30 annual payments. There were no jackpot winners since October 21, 2006, so the grand prize broke its previous jackpot record of $42 million set June 5, 1999.
