Lottery News this week has been dominated by stories about Lottery Winners and Lottery Losers, as well as massive lottery jackpots on offer.
We started the week with a massive £157,000,000 EuroMillion Lottery jackpot on offer.
This EuroMillion jackpot was within striking distance of the record amount and was won by Belgian and Irish Lottery players.
They split the winning prize amount, and the payment in those 2 EuroMillion countries is in Euros, which means they both won an estimated €94,000,000.
In the United Kingdom, the media discovered that an eighteen-year-old lad had won a £22 Million lottery playing on EuroMillions.
He has joined a select bunch of teenagers who have been fortunate enough to win a life-changing amount on lottery games. He is labelled as a Lottery Winner.
This also brought to the fore some stories re lottery losers. Initially, these people had won significant amounts on a particular lottery and blew all the cash.
The most high-profile member of this club is the self-proclaimed ” King of Chavs ” Michael Carroll, who won £10 Million on the UK National Lottery when he was 19.
He was famous for his excessive lifestyle and irritating his neighbours by holding demolition derbies in the back garden of his Norwich mansion.
Mr Carroll now works in a Biscuit Factory somewhere in Scotland.
This highlights that Lottery players’ choices are important, as some jackpots don’t last forever. It is important to plan, and getting financial advice is critical.
These Lottery Winners would still have had many life experiences that would otherwise have been denied to them, so in that sense, they are winners.
The winners in all of this are Charities and the public at large. Billions of pounds have been spent on good causes and other noble causes.
This means less of our tax money is spent on restoring old buildings. We can only benefit from that. So it is a good thing all around to play the lottery.
Instead of the usual article on a Friday where we list EuroMillion jackpot amounts, we thought we would highlight some of the good works that lottery games create in our day-to-day lives.
Today’s EuroMillion Lottery draw is for the regulation amount of £12,000,000 after some lucky lottery winners won the huge jackpot on Tuesday.
