As biggest ever jackpot looms, we look at some of the largest lottery wins
Lottery fever has gripped the US as the biggest jackpot ever seen goes up for grabs.
Friday night's Mega Millions lottery is estimated to be worth a whopping $476 million (£300 million), following a number of rollovers.
Tickets cost just one dollar and the rules state tourists are allowed to enter - but unless you're in the US already you won't be able to try your luck; the draw cannot be entered online from overseas.
While a single winner would easily become the biggest lottery winner the world has ever seen, there have been a host of other winners who have pocketed a tidy sum.
Here, we'll take a look at some of the world's luckiest lottery winners to have gone public.
