The World’s Most Expensive Donut Costs £1,000!

We find a lot of crazy, decadent things on the world's "Most Expensive" lists, but this one takes the ... er, cake.

This is not your average sweet confectionary with glazed icing or sugar on top. The world’s most expensive donut comes with royalty of gilded leaves, gold dusted Belgian chocolate flower and edible diamonds, all for a good cause. Krispy Kreme unveiled the world’s most expensive donut at Selfridges department store in UK worth £1,000 (or around $1,682). The confection was created to mark National Donut Week — a fundraising effort benefitting the UK Children’s Trust charity. - Source

New Lottery Scam Offers $2M from MegaMillions Winner

A new lottery scam email has been making the rounds of American inboxes. Claiming to be from Jim McCullar, it says he has won $190 million in the Mega Millions lottery and wants to voluntarily give you $2 million. The email provides a "donation code" as well as a YouTube link showing Jim and his wife accepting their lottery prize.

Now Jim and Carolyn McCullar really did win $190 million from Mega Millions in 2011, and the YouTube page provided on the email is legitimate -- but the email itself is obviously a fraud. Don't fall for it.

Always be vigilant. Many lottery scams are cleverly and convincingly written, but deceptive and completely fraudulent. Thousands of people have lost money paying “commissions” and “charges” to receive cash prizes they've been told (falsely) they've won. The opportunists behind these scams steal large amounts of money from gullible people and they tarnish the integrity of legitimate lottery marketers like OSA.

Please bear in mind this one simple fact: there is no such thing as a free lunch. People don't randomly want to send you money, and you can't possibly have won a prize in a lottery you never even entered in the first place. As the old saying goes: if you receive an offer in the mail which sounds too good to be true, then it probably is.

What to Do When You Win the Lottery (Advice from Camelot's CEO)

With tonight's Euro Millions lottery jackpot at a high of €120 Million (approximately US$163 Million), it's worth listening to what "Millionaire-Maker" Dianne Thompson has to say about what to do when you win the lottery.

"You’ve got to take time to get your head around it,' says Thompson, who has made at least 3,500 people millionaires during her time as chief executive of Camelot.

“The first piece of advice is to take time,” she says. 'Don’t make any promises to start with. It’s all too easy to say 'I’ll give some to you, and some to you…’ If you can, we advise that you go away for a few days or a couple of weeks, just to get used to the idea.”

Euro Millions €100 Million Superdraw Postponed, But New Jackpot is Even Higher!

Anyone participating in the June 6, 2014 Euro Millions draw - whether for individual or group play - will now be playing for a larger jackpot worth €105 Million!

The planned EuroMillions Superdraw, which was scheduled to take place on Friday was postponed after the jackpot naturally passed the  €100 million mark after another rollover on June 3rd.

This is the first time that a Superdraw has been postponed because the naturally occurring prize fund has surpassed €100m mark. Although a very rare occurrence it is always a possibility because no one can predict when the EuroMillions jackpot will be won.

Lottery authorities have been quick to reassure people that the money that would have been used for the Superdraw will remain in the EuroMillions Reserve Fund and set aside for future draws and promotions.

Lottery Winners get 'Happy' for New Ad

There's nothing more guaranteed to make you feel happy than the news of a lottery win, so it makes perfect sense that  Pharrell Williams' hit song "Happy" is the theme song of the New Jersey Lottery's new advertising campaign.

The new ad will feature past instant game winners -- anyone who won even as little as a dollar on a scratch ticket. Winners were asked to submit a 30-second video of themselves dancing if they'd like to be in the commercial. (Funnily enough, many winners picked the song "Happy" to dance to, without being aware it would be the song in the ad.)

Lottery winner Jeff Shepard shows off his dance moves for the new NJ Lottery commercial.

The ad campaign, featuring three 30 second commercials, will debut on TV and in movie theaters in two weeks.


Ready to do your own happy dance? Lots of big lottery jackpots this week -- go try your luck now!

Lost $50M Ticket Finds Its Way Back to Lottery Winners


Imagine winning a $50 Million jackpot -- and then losing the ticket before you can claim it. That's exactly what happened to Hakeem Nosiru, who won the January 17, 2014 Lotto Max draw. He was one day away from claiming the money when the ticket, which he duct-taped to the inside his wife’s purse for safekeeping, when he discovered it was missing after they attended church.

That sparked a frantic search of their Brampton home, with garbage bins being upended and their contents picked through piece by piece, an effort that left Nosiru and his wife empty handed and feeling “miserable.”

But that despair turned to joy after a fellow member of the congregation discovered the ticket and reunited it with them on April 1 — saying “April fools” — a return made possible because Nosiru signed the ticket with their address.

Lotto of the Week: USA Powerball

This first week of June is an incredibly good time to be dabbling in lottery play, as there are some pretty enormous draws coming up -- including a 100 Million Euro Millions Superdraw and an 84 Million El Gordo draw.  First place, however, has to go to American Powerball, which is offering a $192 MILLION jackpot on Wednesday.


Powerball is one of America's two biggest multi-state lotteries and boasts some of the largest jackpot prizes in the world. Here are just a few of the record-breaking jackpots it has paid out in the past few years:
  • US$425 Million on February 19, 2014
  • US$591 Million on May 18, 2013
  • US$338 Million on March 23, 2013
  • US$587 Million on November 28, 2012
  • US$305 Million on August 15, 2012
  • US$336 Million on February 11, 2012
Since the game mechanics changed in January 2012, Powerball jackpots now start at a minimum of $40 Million, and roll over until all numbers are matched. There is no maximum jackpot.

Try your luck now at one of the world's most famous lottery games!
