We often hear stories of people who win large amounts of money, but waste it all and lose their friends in the process. However, that's not the case for most people who get lucky, as these inspiring stories show. After winning a life changing sum, the possibilities for what you can do are endless, from helping others to achieving your dreams. If these tales don't inspire you to take part in the 888Ladies Jumbo Jackpot, we're not sure what will!
Most people would be excited to win a few grand playing online bingo, but did you know it's possible to win millions? In fact, the world record for the biggest bingo win took place in the UK. Lincolnshire grandfather John Orchard won an incredible £5.1 million by playing an online bingo game in 2012. The 60 year old ditched his job at a job centre and traded in his old car for a fancy Jaguar XF. However, he still enjoys the same treats he and his family savoured before he came into money, such as taking a holiday to Center Parcs and giving his grandchildren a Christmas to remember.
Don't let it be said that teenagers aren't good with money! Eloise Heard from Colchester was one of the youngest winners of the National Lottery when she scored over £1.3 million in 2011. She used the cash to fund a fantastic start to her adult life, including buying a car and a house, setting up her own mobile beauty business, getting married to her boyfriend and travelling across America. Eloise is a great example of how winning money means you can do all those things you would have put on hold, and make the most of life without worrying about how to pay for it.
It's always touching to hear of someone who was struggling financially coming into a life-changing amount of money. That's what happened to Shaban Binaku, who beat the Guinness World Record for the largest cash prize won at a single venue. He was taking part in a game at a bingo club in Cricklewood when he hit the jackpot, and won £100,000. Shaban said "This money will change mine and my family's life completely, and it couldn't have come at a better time." The Londoner, who has family in Kosovo, said they were struggling to make ends meet and he was very excited to treat them with his winnings.
Working Men's Club manager Alex Dyer was very generous when she won almost £6 million on the National Lottery. She made sure everyone in her life was taken care of, giving money to family and friends, and donating to charities she believed in. She gave away around half of her winnings, but still had plenty left to herself and her late husband John. They bought a luxury home, cars and went on all the holidays they had dreamed of. After her husband sadly passed away, Alex took the moment to fulfil another dream, and moved to Spain, where she lives by the beach and enjoys riding her own horse.
