Generous winners: Lottoland survey finds half would give away their jackpot winnings

Besides gift-giving, the most popular choices when it came to lottery purchases included bucket list experiences and expensive items

• A third say they would gift lottery winnings to a family member

• One fifth of people would give their prize money to a friend

• Holidays, houses and cars are top choices for jackpot spending

An extra-large jackpot is on its way this week, which could result in one lucky winner claiming the whopping €276,000,000 boosted PowerBall jackpot this Sunday with Lottoland.

With this massive draw on the horizon, Lottoland has quizzed 2,000 adults to find out what they’d really spend the money on if they won big – and it turns out that we’re a nation that likes to give. While the top three choices for jackpot spending were holidays, new homes and cars, it turns out players aren’t just looking out for themselves.

In fact, a third of people (32%) said if they won the lottery this week, they would gift their winnings to a family member – and on top of this, a fifth (20%) said they’d gift them to a friend. In total, this means over half the nation would generously share their win.

Besides gift giving, the most popular choices when it came to lottery purchases included bucket list experiences and expensive items. The top 10 ways to spend a lottery win were:

  1.  A holiday (43%)
  2. A house (40%)
  3. A car (32%)
  4. Gift to a family member (32%)
  5. A round-the-world trip (23%)
  6. FIFA World Cup tickets (21%)
  7. A posh hotel stay (21%)
  8. Gift to a friend (20%)
  9. Visiting fancy restaurants (18%)
  10. Stocks and shares (16%)
  11. An animal safari (14%)
  12. Jewellery (13%)

Nigel Birrell, CEO at Lottoland, said: “With such a large jackpot on the way, many of us will be daydreaming about what we’d spend our winnings on. It’s heart-warming to see that for so many people, taking care of loved ones tops the list – before fancy new cars, lavish homes and other luxuries.”
