How Do Lottery Winners Spend Their Money?
Article by Andrew Regan
People play lottery games not only so that they can experience the thrill of winning, but so that they can also enjoy spending their jackpot afterwards. But what do lottery winners actually spend their money on when they get around to it?The specific answer to this question obviously varies from person to person. One might spend a fortune on a guitar once owned by Eric Clapton, whilst another might be more interested in buying a dress that was once owned by Marilyn Monroe. Such personal variations are to be expected, but if you focus on overall trends and categories of expenditure, you find that lottery winners are a lot more predictable than it seems at first glance. Here are some of the most popular things you are likely to find on the shopping list of a lottery winner.Hot PropertyBricks and mortar are almost always a sound investment and it is therefore unsurprising that most lottery winners buy themselves a bigger, better and newer home than they had before. In fact, a high proportion of winners will often go even further and buy a second or third holiday home as well.Stylish TransportGetting from A to B in style is another thing that lottery winners like to spend money on. Most winners choose to buy cars, with popular sports cars often proving a popular choice in almost all lottery-playing nations. In fact, some can take it a step further and buy themselves a private plane. And when it comes to travelling by land, air or sea as a passenger, first class tickets are invariably the order of the day.Impressive JewelleryMost lottery winners like to wear at least some of their wealth, so shopping lists aren?t complete without at least one necklace or designer watch. An attractive watch is almost always sought after with men, and diamonds are still a girl?s best friend. But whatever the gender of the lottery winner, it is clear that bling is king.Personal StaffSpending money on staff of their own is another common choice among big jackpot winners. Personal shoppers are very popular, probably because they make shopping as stress free an experience as possible, but personal chefs, housekeepers, gardeners and chauffeurs are also very much sought after.Luxurious EscapesIndeed, an almost certain purchase amongst lottery winners is a luxury escape. Whether it?s a first class cruise around the world, a month spent on a romantic Caribbean island or an extended stay in a five-star hotel in New York for Christmas shopping, lottery winners are keen to make the most of their down time. In addition, lottery winners also tend to enjoy considerably more down time than the rest of us, managing to pack several luxurious escapes into their schedules each year.Clearly, lottery winners know how to spend their jackpots in style. But, the question is if you were to win the lottery, what would you spend your winnings on? Of course, what one lottery winner chooses to spend their money on may be different from another. Either way, the possibilities are in fact endless!
