What She Would Do If She Won The Lottery

We all dream about what I’d do if I won the lottery. For many people, the answer is extraordinary. While some people invest or donate to charity, most engage in some elaborate spending.

For example, a UK couple named Roger and Lara Griffiths bought a 670,000 pound home after winning the $1.8 million pound lottery. They went on to buy two more properties with the intention of renting them to tenants. In addition, they bought two luxury sports cars and they invested in the stock market and Roger used part of the winnings to record an album with a band he formed while attending college. 

A couple in Wales, Paul and Denise Hardware, won the 5 million pound lottery. They spent their winnings on a new home as well as rental properties. In addition, they took a cruise to celebrate the fact that they won the money. They also used that money towards paying their son’s tuition at Oxford Brooks University. 

Another couple that put their lottery winnings to good use were an English couple named Beryl and George Keates. Rather than keeping all of the money to themselves, when they won 3.5 million pounds in 2012, they gifted cash to their sisters, sons, and grandchildren. With the money left over, the couple has continued to play the lottery on a regular basis.

An 18-year-old woman named Charlie Lagarde was a first-time lottery player when she won 550,000 pounds. She was given the option of receiving the whole amount at once or getting payouts every week. Charlie chooses the weekly payouts and went on to put the money towards her studies in photography, allowing her to travel as part of her education. She plans to use this experience to land a job with National Geographic. 

Nigel Willetts, a pub owner in the U.K. beat the odds and won a one million pound lottery prize. When he was purchasing his lottery tickets, by accident he spent a 20-pound note. With the money he won, as a result, he and 13 members of his family went on a holiday in Florida. 

These are just some of the stories that have come from lottery winners. Chances are that most of these people did not plan on winning, so when they did, it turned them into a child in a candy store. 

Everyone has dreams about what they would do if they actually won the lottery. While most people will never live this dream, others will. Only time will tell how lottery winners continue to spend their money. Some successfully put it to good use and others spend every dime of it without stopping to think about the long term results from doing so. 

No matter who you are, you have a story of what you would do with your lottery winnings. The path that everyone takes is different, and this especially applies to those who win the lottery.
