The lottery is played all over the world. In Russia, only 1-2% of the population participate in lotteries, for comparison: the share of players in France is 70% of the total population of the country, the USA - 63%. Such a small percentage of players in Russia is explained by the distrust of Russians in lotteries. But among these percentages there are also winners who hit large jackpots.
Most of the lucky ones try to remain anonymous and do not tell anyone about their winnings. And this, of course, is correct, because big money attracts many ill-wishers, as well as new and old friends, newly-made relatives. Below are the 7 biggest lottery wins in Russia.
