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 pleasant. Life-changing things have happened to people who have overnight attained the status of being a lotto winner.
Whether you happened to draw 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 immediately.
Winning a record prize of £ 11 million, Mark Gardiner was confident that all his problems were a thing of the past. However, though his current problems vanished, he got into new ones that he was neither trained for or capable of handling. With his friend and business partner Paul Maddison, Mark hit the jackpot. Together the two won a record £ 22 million and Mark got his share of £ 11 million. Paul turned away from the limelight; he retreated into the background while Mark decided to have some fun.
Before he could understand it, Mark went through half of his winnings. He gave to friends and relatives, bought expensive cars and houses, married and then divorced, but his problems never seemed to end. His family disowned him just as if he had committed a crime. Finally he regained his bearings and is now wiser and remarried to his first wife; she was his childhood sweetheart, whom he had divorced when he was penniless.
But not all stories are as heart breaking as the one mentioned above. There have been many people who have made good on their fortune and remained grounded. Ianthe Fullagar, a student, won an awe-inspiring £ 7,055,142. After the customary 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 vehicle.
An anonymous winner donated all his winnings of $3 million to his church without batting an eye. The church has decided to expand to accommodate its growing congregation and will also donate some of the money to charities.
The point is, as a lotto winner you now are in the enviable position to do a lot of good for yourself and for those around you. Your community also stands to benefit, but only if you maintain a cool head and spend the money wisely.
