Where are the lottery winner’s couple now? Even though 2020 has been driving the world into a mess, everyone always dreams of winning the lottery and talks about how amazing this would .Here is a list of couples who have won the lottery:
Lara and Roger Griffiths
Sadly this lottery couple’s story isn’t a happy tale filled with joy. It seems the pressure and allure of their life-changing jackpot win, got the better of these two. In 2005, the couple won ￡1.8 million on the UK National Lottery, but have lost it all due to their extravagant spending sprees on supercars, holidays and other luxury items. Six years after winning, the pair have ended up penniless and blame each other for their misfortune. Roger has been quoted as saying: “It didn’t cross my mind that I’d end up here — the one thing I didn’t want to do was waste that money,” This unfortunate couple has ended their 14-year marriage and are now trying to rebuild their lives.
When Roger was asked whether he regretted picking the winning numbers he said he doesn’t regret it at all. “I was living the millionaire’s lifestyle — everyone who wins the Lottery should do that,’ he says. ‘There’s no point entering otherwise.”
Merle and Patricia Butler: Mega Millions lottery winners
2012 was a great year for lottery winners, with many exceptional wins, including the win by Merle and Patricia Butler on the Mega Millions jackpot. They split the main jackpot with three other lucky players, taking home US $218 million after only spending $3 on tickets! The incredible lottery was at US $656 million when it was won. Admirably the pair haven’t splurged or indulged in extravagant items but consulted with investment strategists immediately after winning to ensure that they had a secure investment strategy set up. The couple still lives in Red Bud, Illinois where they were living before they won.
No matter how you celebrated your Valentine’s Day, we hope it was with the ones you love, and hopefully, with millions in the bank thanks to your lottery entries!
