Would it all be fast cars, dream houses and lavish parties, or sensible investments, long-term security and the occasional modest indulgence? With incredible MegaMillions jackpots of more than £285m up for grabs every Tuesday and Friday, it’s the perfect time to grab your chance! Global gaming experts World Lottery Club has surveyed 1,000 people across the UK, investigating our changing attitudes to luck, life and winning big – it has found that potential winners in Wales were by far the most generous of any other region of the UK.
Find out more about how to win with MegaMillions, and how Wales fared in the survey, below!
Understanding Welsh winners
The survey found that 50% of would-be Welsh winners were likely to prioritise donating money to charity. Other areas of the country were not so willing to give something back – with only a third of the North East willing to stump up a wad of fresh cash for a good cause, and just 28% of the East Midlands feeling generous. A reputation for generosity, particularly when giving to charity is concerned, is something of an emerging trend in our national identity. A 2015 study by the Charities Aid Foundation found that 80% of people in Wales were happy to give to charity, some 18% more than our English counterparts.
Attitudes in Wales to the many types of lottery on offer through online alternatives like World Lottery Club were also unlike the rest of the UK. Welsh players would rather have cheaper tickets for smaller prizes, while other regions – including Yorkshire – would prefer multiple smaller jackpots than one large rollover.
Many regard lottery-playing as a little bit retro, but they couldn’t be more wrong. While almost a third of 18-24 year-olds never played the lottery, the majority have bought a ticket, according to the World Lottery Club survey. Across the country, the Gambling Commission noted that lottery games gained in popularity between 2010 and 2015, with a further £2bn added to the national pot. With so much money at stake just in the UK lottery market, and many billions more up for grabs in draws around the world, no wonder all generations are trying their luck.
