Talk about confidence! Players who have won the lottery before will absolutely play again. And again and again and again. It’s addictive!


3. Impulse purchase nightmares become reality


Ever dream of owning a line of luxury cars or a mansion? Well… this becomes the norm after winning $100 million. Many lottery winners actually end up not needing the items they bought on impulse.

6. Everyone will know your name
