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 positive. Amazing things have happened to people who have suddenly attained the status of being a lotto winner.
No matter 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 immediately.
Winning a record prize of £ 11 million, Mark Gardiner thought that all his problems were a thing of the past. However, though his present 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 won the jackpot. Together the two won a record £ 22 million and Mark got his share of £ 11 million. Shunning the limelight, Paul retreated into the background while Mark decided to have some fun.
Before he could realize it, Mark went through half of his winnings. As Mark 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.
But 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 an amazing £ 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 those near and dear to her and to continue to pursue her degree in law. A new car was the only new thing she planned to buy.
A generous anonymous winner, without batting an eye, donated all his $3 million winnings to his church. 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 find yourself in the enviable position to do a lot of good for yourself and for those around you. Also, your community will benefit — if you maintain a cool head and spend the money wisely.
