Lotto Winners, Miraculous Stories Of Some Lotto Winners

Once you have won a jackpot you life surely changes. Whether it brings good or bad results depends on how and where you spend your winnings. Stories of lotto winners make an interesting news and have a big influence on future lotto winners. The saying “the more things change the more they remain the same” has often been found to be true when tracking the lives of some of the biggest lotto winners. Winning the jackpot is a very peculiar event where an individual gets an opportunity to affect the lives of numerous others who are not so lucky.

Time and again have we seen people who have been declared 649 jackpot winner, with a bottle of champagne in hand, that a jackpot win is not going to change them one bit. On the other hand, the statistics shows that more than half of those who won 649 jackpot moved to a bigger house in the countryside. More than two thirds of the winners handed over more than £ 1 million to relative and well wishers or friends. Over two thirds of all big lotto winners are overseas property owners. 90% of the big time lotto winners were in the workforce when they won, however, only 25% are still working. Most lotto winners enjoy more than one luxury car. Even today more or less all winners are still playing 649 lotto.

The year was 2005; Brad Duke of Idaho was leading a normal before fortune favored him. Brad was working as a manager for Gold’s Gym franchises when he hit the $220 million Powerball jackpot. Brad won $85 million as his share of the jackpot and soon after started managing his finances. In order to cope with his new found wealth Brad developed a team of financial advisers within a month. His only aim was to become a billionaire through investment. Brad invested more than half of his winnings in investments with low risk like municipal bonds. 35 million were put in financial instruments who involve high risk high return such as stock, and real estate. He established a family charity and alloted $ 1.3 million, paid off his mortgage of $125,000 , gifted each family member $12,000 and student loan of $18,000, went for a trip to Tahiti with his friends, the cost of the trip estimated around $63,000. But surprisingly he only bought a used car, a black VW Jetta for $ 14,500. Today Brad has wealth over $140 million. Brad took some time off after winning but eventually he went back to work again to his previous employer at Gold’s Gym.

The story of a 19 year old Michael Carroll is totally in contrast to Brad’s story. Michael won an enormous £ 9.7 million in November 2002 but managed to blow all the money. Today he is back to his previous position. Michael didn’t take the advice of experts and well wishers and squandered the wealth that others only dream off.

These are some astonishing stories of lotto winners. In case you happen to win a mega jackpot it is advocated that you enjoy the moment thoroughly but get back to earth as soon as possible and think properly before investing.

Best of all.
