Who doesn’t daydream about winning the lotto, inheriting a fortune, or coming into a windfall? Of course, most of us don’t rely on this happenstance to fund our future and we make financial plans accordingly (ie. we save for a rainy day and fund out retirement accounts.) But it’s fun to think about what a person might do with all that money; sail the seas, traipse through Europe without a care, volunteer for things you might not have time for, or become a philanthropist.
Of course it isn’t completely absurd to think about winning the lotto. People do win. Just take a look at the infographic below from Daily Infographic.com of the top 10 Lotto jackpots. I think that if I ever won the Lotto (of course, it might help if I played!) I’d stay on the down low about it. 😉
