How lottery winners have spent their winnings

Did you know that there are ways to make an exorbitant amount of money online, and all you must do are play some games and buy some tickets? (To be precise, you need winning lottery tickets to pick up lottery winnings).

That sounded super spammy, I know. But it’s true! (kind of). If you know me personally, you’ll know I love to play the lottery. I dream of what I will spend my lottery winnings on. I bet you do it too!

Pick up lottery winnings: Play online!

Many people have learned the benefit of playing live lottery games online, which cuts down on the waiting period of playing traditional lottery. This gives you more time and opportunity to continue to play online and win some huge jackpots.

Online casino jackpots

If you can’t wait for the weekly lottery result, there are plenty of massive jackpots to be won in online casinos. I’ve tried several (though I haven’t won the jackpot yet).
Some benefits of opting to play online casino games are the enjoyable gaming experiences it offers the player and fast payouts, sometimes in as little as a few hours.

All you need to do is pick a serious casino and play online. It’s as simple as that. In fact, you may be surprised to learn, you have just as much of a chance of winning when you play online as at a land-based casino. The types of games you can play are the same as at a land-based casino too. One can choose to play poker, blackjack, roulette, even craps, all the classic casino favorites and so many more. Just make sure you read the terms and conditions on whatever site you choose for your gaming exploits to protect yourself.

How to spend your lottery winnings

Beyond protecting oneself online by reading terms and conditions and picking a serious online casino to play at, one has something equally as important to mull over… lottery winnings! What should be done with all that money you are going to win? It is critical to plan for this because you don’t want to blow through your jackpot, which are mistakes some former lottery winners have made.

However, some lottery winners have chosen to spend their money in unique ways. For example, a winner and his wife opted to take a portion of their winnings and build a water park. Another winner chose to use funds to create a women’s wrestling television show. Crazy right? Well if you have the money, the world is your oyster.

Responsible spending

Conversely, you can spend your money in seemingly more responsible ways. One option would be to use it to travel the world, the benefit being acquiring significant life experience and submerging yourself in the culture of other countries. Or set the money aside in a family trust and set loved ones up for financial success.

Truly, the possibilities are endless when it comes to how one could spend winnings from playing casino or lottery games online. All you must do is start playing to win big, but remember, one essential step to playing responsibly is to plan what you are going to do once you hit that jackpot. I hate to be dull, but I’ll be paying off that student loan debt with my big payout. Then jet off to a tropical beach! What are you going to do with your winnings?

One of my favourite hobbies… Reading

Is there anything quite as relaxing as reading? Finding a comfortable chair, a spot in the sun or snuggled up under a blanket with a hot cup of tea and instantly being transported to another world.  Reading for pleasure rather than reading to study or for work can help to shut out the worries and concerns of everyday life and expand your horizons without leaving your seat. This is one of the best hobbies too since it’s free! Just visit your local library or download a classic on your Kindle if you have one.

Making time for yourself to relax is especially important in this day and age of so much stress and bluelight exposure from too many hours of screen time. Finding the time to read as a child was much easier, especially if you were born before mobile phones came into such popular use as online entertainment, but as an adult finding time to indulge in this hobby can harder. Maybe you haven’t found the time to read recently what with having so many daily obligations with kids, work, studies and life, so why not  make a promise to yourself? This weekend give yourself an hour or two dedicated to reading.  Get comfortable, get offline and open a good book.

If you don’t have any books currently on the go, here’s a few favourites you might want to pick up. They are also amongst the highest selling books of all time; testament to just how good they are and that they are accessible to so many people across the globe!

A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens –  “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times” Perhaps you’ve heard that quote and never read the book but it’s an absolute classic tale of revolution and duality, resurrection and transformation set in London and Paris.

The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien – by now you have probably seen the Peter Jackson film, spanning an epic 3 movies. Why not revisit the book and immerse yourself in the full Tolkien middle earth experience? Something about the richness of the language gives the books huge gravitas and you’ll likely find yourself eagerly turning the pages to see what happens next on Frodo’s perilous quest, even though you know the story already.

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis. It’s almost impossible to think of Turkish delight and not recall the scene of the White Witch in this fantastical classic children’s book. Join Lucy, Edmund, Peter and Susan on a magical adventure through the wardrobe and forget all about Brexit.

The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger. Banned from some American schools due to bad language and sexual content, The Catcher in the Rye became a classic tale of teen angst told by central character Holden Caulfield, who did not spend his time playing Candy Crush or playing online games.
