Lottery jackpot winners’ post-pandemic bucket list

Is it just us or do you feel like this pandemic has been going on forever! Lockdown has really shown us what’s important in our lives and also highlighted a long list of things we can’t wait to do again.

During this pandemic we’ve missed our family and friends, we’ve missed visiting our favourite restaurants, traveling and having the freedom to go where we like, when we like.

For big lottery jackpot winners a big win would normally give you the freedom to do the things in life you’ve always wanted to do, however COVID-19 has changed everything.

Right now we’re still tightly in the grips of the pandemic, but with a vaccine on the horizon, we have high hopes for a brighter 2021.

Here are 6 things we think lottery jackpot winners could do with their money once this pandemic is over:

Organise a big family get-together

Due to travel bans and border closures, millions of people around the world have been separated from their loved ones. Australians have been stranded abroad, and others have been prohibited to see family members living overseas. They’ve missed births, deaths, weddings and all sorts of important family occasions.

Family is one of the most important things in life, so we can’t think of a better way to spend your lottery prize money than paying for all your family to be in the one place for a big family get-together once the bans on overseas travel have been lifted. Eat, drink, be merry and make up for lost time. Why not do it in a luxurious location and treat the whole family! Hawaii anyone?

Donate to charity

In the past year we’ve seen many charities step up and support those in need around the country. They’ve been helping people struggling financially due to job losses, and feeding people around the world struggling with hunger.

It would be wonderful to be able to thank some of these charities for the hard work and dedication by donating funds after a big lottery jackpot win.

Take a trip overseas

The idea of embarking on a world trip seems so foreign now, but for anyone whose passport is burning a hole in their pocket, a holiday is probably at the top of your post-pandemic bucket list.

Remember the days when we could book a flight, hop on a plane and fly to a tropical island? We miss holidaying overseas and can’t wait to catch the travel bug again once we can safely travel overseas.

Organise a music festival

Winning a lottery jackpot could give you the freedom to do just about anything, so why not organise your own music festival!

Australian’s love our summer music festivals and they’ve been sorely missed during the pandemic. A jackpot win could be just what you need to organise your own festival once it’s safe to do so and get back out on the dance floor. Who would be your headline act?

Go off grid

Perhaps you’ve had enough of all the rules and regulations? With your jackpot prize money you could take yourself off-grid and start a new life without breaking any of the rules!

Setting up a covert safe fully sustainable lifestyle can be an expensive venture, but with a big jackpot win you’d have enough money to set up the off-grid lifestyle you’ve always dreamt about.

Create an emergency fund

For the serious ones amongst us, the pandemic may have shown you that you should always be prepared for the unexpected. In this case, set up an emergency fund and be prepared for whatever the future throws at you. Invest, or save, putting some dollars aside might help you in the long run.

When you play online lottery and win a big jackpot prize, the possibilities are endless! PLAY NOW for your chance to win and make your dreams come true once this pandemic is over.

FAQ

Can I win more by playing online lottery overseas?

Yes! The online lottery prize money overseas is huge in comparison to Australia, with jackpots into the billions compared to millions in Australia.

How often should I play lottery?

How often you play lottery is completely up to the individual. You can play one draw a week, or you could play 2 or 3 times per week. The more you play, the more your chances of winning increase.

Are Australian Lottery Jackpots the same?

Australian lotteries are great, however they don’t quite measure up to big US lotteries. US jackpots are HUGE, with prize money reaching the hundreds of millions, and sometimes even billions!
