What would you do if you won the lottery? I would take a cross-country trip and help out my family, and maybe only work part-time just to keep busy. When we dream of winning the lottery we usually think $10 million or even $50 million. But what if you won over $700 MILLION?
These people are the luckiest lottery winners in the world, with one jackpot being over $1 billion.
12. $319 Million in Albany
Seven co-workers in Albany, New York won $319 million on the Mega Millions lottery in 2015. 5 other co-workers passed on that round of the lottery pool, and I'm sure they still regret it.
11. $331 in Illinois, New Jersey, and Georgia
Erika Greene, a family in Illinois, and someone else in New Jersey all shared the $331 million jackpot. Green said she planned to buy a house and a car, although she's probably got more to spend after that.

10. $336 Million in California and New York
