No matter if you drew the winning numbers yourself or used the windows lotto pro software, you will be richer by tens of millions of euros or pounds and things will start to change almost immediately.
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 present problems vanished, he got into new ones that he was not trained for or capable of handling. Mark won the jackpot with his business partner and friend Paul Maddison. They won a record £ 22 million; Mark’s share was £ 11 million. Paul shunned the limelight and faded into the background — but Mark decided to have some fun.
Before it dawned on him, Mark blew half of his winnings. While he gave to friends and relatives, bought expensive cars and houses, married and then divorced, his problems never seemed to end. His family shunned him just 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.
Gladly, 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. Ianthe Fullagar, a student, won a mind-blowing £ 7,055,142. After 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 continues to pursue her law school studies. The main new thing she planned to buy was a new automobile.
An anonymous winner donated all winnings of $3 million to his church without batting an eye. The church has decided to not only expand its facilities to accommodate the growing congregation, but to also donate some of the money to charities.
The point is, as a lotto winner you now are in an enviable position to do a lot of good, to yourself and to those around you. Your community will benefit as well — if you maintain a cool head and spend the money wisely.
