Big Jackpot Alert levels
Both American Mega Millions and American Powerball have rolled over this week, meaning that the first jumps to a Level 2 Big Jackpot Alert with its top prize of $410 million. Powerball stays at Level 1 for now, but keep an eye out next week to see whether this week’s jackpot of $378 million increases with a rollover.
Oz Lotto may have dropped off of the Big Jackpot Alerts after a win on Tuesday, but this week you are being treated to not one, but two new lotteries that jump right in at Level 1 and an incredible Level 5! EuroJackpot has a healthy jackpot of €49 million but taking the lead is Italy’s SuperEnalotto with a life-changing top-tier prize of €282.4 million!

Jackpot league tables
With 2 new lottery entries, the Lotto Express Jackpot League Table has had a bit of a shuffle this week. That being said, both the American Mega Millions and American Powerball are holding strong in first and second place, with the former’s jackpot tipping over $400 million.
New kid on the block, Italy’s SuperEnalotto, comes in at 3rd place with a record-breaking jackpot of €282.4 million – the biggest jackpot it’s ever had! This pushes EuroMillions down to 4th position, sandwiched between, EuroJackpot.
At the far end of the Jackpot League Table we have Australian Lotto 6/45 with it’s AUD $5 million prize fund, followed by Oz Lotto which has plummeted down due to a win in the last few days. The bottom of the table is held up by the Irish Lotto and French Lotto, which both have €2 million jackpots.
A lucky Irish player has won almost €9 million in yesterday’s National Lottery draw.
