Winning the Lotto — Lucky or Not?
If you happen to be a lotto winner your life is never going to be the same again. Not only your life, but the lives of friends and relatives will also change, and the change may not always be good. Startling things have happened to people who have suddenly attained the status of being a lotto winner.
No matter how you have won the lotto, whether you drew the winning numbers yourself or used the windows lotto pro software, the fact is that you will be richer by tens of millions of pounds or euros, and things will start to change almost before you can catch your breath.
Mark Gardiner won a record prize of £ 11 million and was sure that all his problems were a thing of the past. However, though his customary problems vanished, he got into new ones that he was not trained for or capable of handling. With his friend and business partner Paul Maddison, Mark won the jackpot. Together the two won a record £ 22 million; Mark’s share was £ 11 million. Paul turned away from the limelight; he retreated into the background while Mark decided to have some fun.
Before it dawned on him, Mark blew half of his winnings. Though he bought expensive cars and houses, gave to friends and relatives, married and then divorced, his problems never seemed to end. His family rejected him almost as if he had committed a crime. Finally he regained his bearings and is now wiser and remarried to his first wife (a childhood sweetheart) whom he had divorced when he was penniless.
However, not all stories are as heart breaking as the one mentioned above. There have been many people who have made good on their fortune while remaining grounded. Ianthe Fullagar, a student, won an impressive £ 7,055,142. After the usual screaming in disbelief she settled down and called her boyfriend and family and shared the news with them. Ianthe intends to share her new found wealth with her near ones and to continue to pursue her law degree. The only new thing she planned to buy was a new automobile.
