Na rozdíl od Spojených států , kde jsou výhry v loteriích zdaněny, jsou evropské jackpoty obecně osvobozeny od daně (samotné loterie jsou zdaněny jinými způsoby) a jackpoty se vyplácejí paušálně. Například ve Spojeném království je národní loterie , sázky jsou rozdělené mezi provozovatelem hru Camelot Group a vládou, s Camelot distribuovat svůj podíl mezi cenami, provozní náklady, zisk, Camelot je ‚Program veřejně prospěšné účely‘ s tím, že zbytek bude vládu jako splatnou daň z přidané hodnoty ( DPH ).

United States

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.)

Because of the rate of growth, one annuitized jackpot can have a higher cash value than a larger annuitized jackpot with a lower cash value. For instance: while both the Mega Millions’ and the Powerball’s annuities are paid out in 30 annual installments, the Mega Millions’ annuity payments increase 5 percent yearly, while the Powerball annuity payments increase 4 percent yearly. This makes the Mega Millions’ annuity structure somewhat more «inflated».

El Gordo

Das spanische Sorteo Extraordinario de Navidad (Spanische Weihnachtslotterie) gilt allgemein als das größte Lotteriespiel der Welt mit dem größten ersten Preis / Jackpot. 2012 betrug der erste Preis 720 Millionen Euro (damals 941,8 Millionen US-Dollar; 2020 1,058 Milliarden US-Dollar). Der Gesamtpreispool belief sich 2012 auf 2,52 Milliarden Euro (3,297 Milliarden US-Dollar; 3,704 Milliarden US-Dollar im Jahr 2020). Die Tickets für diese Zeichnung sind mit fünfstelligen Nummern vorgedruckt, wobei jeder Nummernsatz mehrmals in Serie verkauft wird . Beispielsweise wurde ein Ticket mit der Nummer «00001» 180 Mal unter verschiedenen Seriennummern gedruckt. Darüber hinaus ist jede Serie in 10 Décimos (Zehntel auf Englisch) unterteilt, bei denen es sich um die einzelnen Tickets handelt, die zum Kauf angeboten werden. Dies führt dazu, dass der Hauptpreis von einer sehr großen Anzahl von Gewinnern geteilt wird, die normalerweise aus verschiedenen Regionen Spaniens stammen. Der Hauptpreis 2011 in Höhe von 720 Millionen Euro wurde als 4 Millionen Euro (5,2 Millionen US-Dollar) für jedes der 180 Tickets (oder 400.000 Euro für jedes Décimo ) mit der Nummer 58268 ausgezahlt. 2016 betrug der Gesamtpreispool 2,310 Milliarden Euro (2,414 Mrd. USD) Im Jahr 2020 belief sich der Gesamtpreis auf 2,38 Mrd. EUR (2,897 Mrd. USD).

Europe[edit]

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.

Europe[]

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.

Examples of largest jackpots in specific European lotteries

El Gordo[edit]

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 ($2.414 billion) In 2020, the total prize was €2.38 billion ($2.897 billion)
