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.
Winning a record prize of £ 11 million, Mark Gardiner concluded that all his problems were a thing of the past. However, though his present problems vanished, Mark found himself with new ones that he was not capable of or trained to handling. Mark won the jackpot with his friend and business partner Paul Maddison. Together they had record winngs of £ 22 million and Mark got his share of £ 11 million. Paul turned away from the limelight and faded into the background while Mark decided to have some fun.
Before he could understand it, Mark went through half of his winnings. As he bought expensive cars and houses, gave to friends and relatives, married and then divorced, his problems never seemed to end. His family disowned him as though 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.
Fortunately, however, not all stories are as heart breaking as the one mentioned above. There have been innumerable people who have made good on their fortune and remained grounded. Student Ianthe Fullagar won an amazing £ 7,055,142. After screaming in disbelief she settled down and called her family, and her boyfriend, and shared the news with them. Ianthe intends to share her new found wealth with those near and dear to her and to continue to pursue her law studies. The only new thing she planned to buy was a new vehicle.
An anonymous winner donated his winnings of $3 million to his church without batting an eye. The church has taken a decision to expand to accommodate the growing congregation and will donate some of the money to charities.
The point is, as a lotto winner you are suddenly in the enviable position to do a lot of good for yourself and for those around you. Your community stands to benefit too, if you maintain a cool head and spend the money wisely.
