Most lottery players are quite familiar with what a Rollover is and how it works when they are playing their chosen lottery game. It’s an incredibly simple concept indeed.
Just for the record, however, in a lottery, a Rollover occurs when the lottery jackpot prize is not won and is then carried forward to the jackpot prize of the next lottery draw.
This happens every single week within lotteries worldwide and makes for some large jackpots to be won – in many cases these lottery jackpot prizes can be absolutely staggering!
Lottery jackpots can Roll Over many times – sometimes without limit – until someone picks the winning lottery numbers. Until then, the lotto jackpot will continue to roll and build game after game.
Sometimes there is a limit as to how many times these Rollovers
can occur within a lottery game. When this limit has been reached and
the jackpot prize is still not won, the lottery jackpot will then
generally be shared amongst lottery winners in the 2nd prize tier.
So, you can win a lottery jackpot in some cases even if you don’t have all the correct winning lottery numbers!
The biggest ever lottery rollover in the world to be won to date was on January 13th 2016 when an earth shattering US Powerball jackpot of US$ 1.58 BILLION was won by 3 very lucky winning tickets from Tennessee, Florida and California.
The 2nd largest ever rollover so far occurred on March 30th 2012, when the Mega Millions game in the USA produced a massive lottery jackpot of US$ 656 MILLION which was shared between 3 lucky lottery ticket holders from Maryland, Illinois and Kansas.
The US Lottery – Powerball – also produced a staggering lottery jackpot of US$ 587.5 MILLION
when 2 tickets from Missouri and Arizona shared the enormous win on November 28th 2012.
This is the 3rd largest ever lottery jackpot to have been produced to date.
