5. UK's National Lottery

The UK's National Lottery is one of the most popular and played in this country. So much so that even celebrities such as Simon Cowell, host of TV shows like X-Factor and America's Got Talent and recognized as one of the great fortunes of the United Kingdom, has confessed that he likes to participate in the draws of this British lottery.

4. Mega Millions

It is not for nothing that Mega Millions is one of the most famous lotteries in the United States and the world: together with Powerball, it holds the record of the lotteries with the most millionaire prizes in the world. Its prizes have attracted celebrities such as supermodel and wife of singer John Legend, Christine Teigen, to buy a ticket for the lottery when one of its jackpots reached USD 656 million. American sports celebrities have also tried their luck with Mega Millions, such as baseball player Matt Kemp and basketball player Chris Singleton, who is rumored to have won US$10,000 by participating in the draw.

3. Christmas Lottery

In Spain, the special Christmas lottery held by the National Lottery is one of the most awaited and played every year in the country. Such is its popularity and tradition, that even celebrities queue up to buy their lottery tickets. So much so, that even the kings and queens themselves participate in the draw! It is even known that Queen Leticia won more than 12,000 euros with a lottery ticket given to her on her wedding day, and that the monarch decided to donate the prize money to an NGO.

2. Powerball

As it could not be otherwise, the most famous lottery in the world is also one of the most requested by celebrities. Some of the celebrities who have acknowledged having bought a ticket to participate in the Powerball lottery include such famous names as the rapper 50 Cent (who almost won the USD 900 million jackpot by matching 3 of the 5 numbers needed), the famous poker player and influencer Dan Bilzerian, and even the politician and former first lady of the United States, Hilary Clinton.

1. Superenalotto

Superenalotto is not only the lottery with the biggest record jackpot in Europe: it is also the favorite of celebrities! Among its ranks, we find celebrities such as the queen of pop, Madonna, who in 2012 not only participated in the draw, but also had the good fortune to win 120,000 euros in secondary prizes. Of course, with a fortune like Madonna's, money is not so necessary, so she decided to donate the prize to build schools in Malawi.

Also well known is the case of celebrities such as British actress and model Elizabeth Hurley and actor George Clooney, who in 2010 bought 500 (Hurley) and 1000 tickets (Clooney) respectively to participate in the Italian lottery draw, with the aim of donating the prizes to the victims of the earthquake in Haiti in case of winning. And we must not forget the famous heiress of the Hilton hotel chain Paris Hilton, who also invested money in buying 1500 tickets for this lottery. Even if she didn't win the prize, she can certainly afford it!
