What would be the first thing you bought if you won the lottery? Come on you all must have thought about it!
We all dream of scooping the jackpot, especially if it’s a rollover. Some of us would go on exotic holidays to somewhere like the Bahamas or maybe we’d go somewhere we’ve always dreamed about visiting like Australia. Perhaps you’d go on an African safari… the list goes on.
Then we start to think about moving into amazing houses with plenty of room for the whole family, huge gardens and areas for us to entertain and, almost certainly, walk-in wardrobes and indoor pools!
Sports cars, the latest gadgets and of course tons of designer clothes would also almost certainly be on the shopping list but would you believe it if I told you that there are people out there who have been lucky enough to win the lottery, or at least win some money on it, and they haven’t claimed it!
The lottery has been going on for more than 20 years now in the United Kingdom, and millions of us still play it on a weekly basis and some will even play the midweek draws or the EuroMillions plus all of the other draws there are these days! Okay, you don’t have to play regularly but we’ve all been involved at some point surely, thinking “this is the one, this is the lucky ticket” and we cling to it while watching the balls come out of the machine.
Unbelievably there are people out there who haven’t sat and watched with the hope of hearing their numbers coming out, completely forgetting that they even entered or, worse still, having lost their ticket! This means they have no idea if they’ve won or not and the online ticket company Lottosend, who sell tickets for various draws for people to play lottery online, have done some research into the unclaimed prize money from lottery draws around the world...
ALL $2 BILLION OF IT!
Yes, there is $2 billion worth of unclaimed prize money sat in the lottery organisers’ accounts which people haven’t collected. Can you believe that!! Lottosend put all of that information into the creation of this amazing graphic which shows all of the things you could buy or invest in for $2 billion, with things ranging from aeroplanes and supercars to even paying off the national debt of Botswana!
Take a look, it’s amazing what could you buy, and even more amazing that so much money hasn’t been claimed.
