We've all dreamed of hitting one of the big jackpots when it comes to the Powerball or Mega Millions. How we would spend the money, the trips we would take, and the Colorado mountain mansion we would buy. Trust me, I've had those daydreams too.


While you may be spending a few dollars here and there to pick up a lottery ticket for one of those big jackpots, your chances of being a jackpot winner are slim. Even more so when you live in the state of Colorado.

Colorado seems to be one of those states where your luck runs short of hitting the big jackpots. That still doesn't stop us from buying a few tickets, because why not? Who wouldn't want to spend two dollars on a chance to change your luck and become a multi-millionaire?

The state of Delaware has the most Powerball winners per 1,000,000 people in the country with 10.10. I guess that is pretty easy considering the state of Delaware has just under one million residents. The state with the most Powerball winners is right in the middle of the Midwest. Indiana is home to a staggering 39 Powerball winners.


What about Mega Millions jackpot winners? You'll need to stick around in the Midwest to find the luckiest state in the nation for Mega Millions. Both Missouri and Indiana have two Mega Millions jackpot winners.
