Stories of lotto winners make an interesting subject for news and prove to be a guiding light to future lotto winners. The saying “the more things change the more they remain the same” has often been found to be true when tracking the lives of some of the biggest lotto winners. Winning the jackpot is an odd but intresting event where an individual gets an opportunity to bring change in the lives of innumerable others who are not so lucky.
Numerous times have we come across people who won the 649 jackpot declare, with a bottle of champagne in hand, that a jackpot win is not going to make any changes within them. In spite of this, the truth is that more than half of 649 jackpot winner purchased a bigger house in the countryside. More than two thirds of the winners gave more than £ 1 million to a close friend or a relative. More than two thirds of all big lotto winners own property overseas. 90% of the big time lotto winners were in the workforce when they won, however, only 25% are still working. Most lotto winners drive more than one luxury car depending on their mood. Surprisingly even today all winners continue to play the 649 lotto.
In the year 2005; Idaho resident Brad Duke was living a normal life when lady luck smiled on him. Brad was working for Gold’s gym franchises as a manager when he hit the $220 million Powerball jackpot. Brad hit a fortune by winning $85 million as his share of the jackpot and immediately started managing his finances. In order to cope with his new found wealth Brad developed a team of financial advisers within a month. His only aim was to become a billionaire through prudent investment. Brad invested more than half of his winnings in investments with low risk like municipal bonds. 35 million were invested in stocks, and real estate that involve high risk high return. He established a family charity and alloted $ 1.3 million, paid off his mortgage of $125,000 and student loan of $18,000, gifted each family member $12,000 and went for a trip to Tahiti with friends, the trip cost him a total $63,000. But amazingly he bought himself a used car, a black VW Jetta for $ 14,500. Today Brad has wealth over $140 million. Brad took some time off after winning but eventually went back to work at Gold’s Gym.
The story of a 19 year old Michael Carroll is in stark contrast to Brad’s story. Michael won a big £ 9.7 million in November 2002 but managed to blow all the money. Today he has no assets and cash and returned to previous position. Michael ignored the suggestions of experts and well wishers and misused the wealth that others only dream off.
These are some staggering stories of lotto winners. In case you become a winner of mega jackpot it is advised that you enjoy the moment fully but get back to earth as soon as possible and think deliberately before making any investment.
Wishes you all the best.
