What is a jackpot and how they work?

In games and lotteries, the word “jackpot” refers to an amount of money accumulated from prizes not awarded in previous draws.

botes de lotería

All modern lotteries have adapted their regulations to attract players and increase participation, this way, making the temptation to play irresistible.

A jackpot starts when there is no winner of any of the categories in a lottery draw. Each game has its own way of determining the amount of  possible jackpots for each draw, how the money is distributed, which part goes to each prize category, if there is a guaranteed minimum, or if there is a maximum number of times that the prize can rollover.

Minimum and maximum guaranteed lottery jackpots

Upon reviewing the lotteries that accumulate larger jackpots, we may see that some have a minimum amount guaranteed for the first prize to which the corresponding amount  on the collection for the draw is added. Each organising entity decides on the minimum depending on the estimated revenue. American lotteries tend to start with the largest jackpots.

Minimum guaranteed Maximun jackpot Rollover
PowerBall jackpot $ 40 millions No limit No limit
MegaMillions jackpot $ 40 millions No limit No limit
Euromillones jackpot € 17 millions € 190 millions 4
Eurojackpot jackpot € 10 millions € 90 millions 1
SuperEnalotto jackpot € 2 millions No limit No limit
La Primitiva jackpot € 2 Millions No limit No limit
OZ PowerBall jackpot AU $ 3 Millions No limit No limit
BonoLoto jackpot € 0,400 Millions No limit No limit
Gordo Primitiva jackpot € 5 Millions No limit No limit
UK Lottery jackpot £ 2 Millions* £ 22 millions 4
Polish Lotto jackpot zł 2 Millions No limit No limit

Not guaranteed, minimum amount is estimated.

How lottery jackpots accumulate

Independently of the fact that every lottery in question has a guaranteed minimum for the main prize, the collection percentages determined by each regulation for the remaining categories are also part of those millionaire prizes.

However, there are lotteries such as PowerBall, MegaMillions and others which have fixed amounts for the second place and subsequent prize categories.

Distribution on lottery jackpot collection

In general, when there is already a pre-existing jackpot from previous raffles, the collection percentage for the next one is added to the existing jackpot.

There are lotteries that allocate a high percentage of each draw collection to increase the pot, and others prefer to distribute it among the various categories provided.

Let’s see how the lotteries that have the highest jackpots accumulate:

Percentage of collection for the jackpot
PowerBall 68.01% of collection + jackpot
MegaMillion 65.15% of collection + jackpot
Euromillones EU 43.20% 6 draws, and 27% after
Eurojackpot 36% of collection + jackpot
SuperEnalotto 17.4%
La Primitiva. ES 6.18%
OZ PowerBall AU 35%
Bono Loto. ES 45%
El Gordo ES 22%
UK Lottery 83% initially, and 27% after
Polish Lotto PL 44% initially, and 27% after
