How Far Would You Go To Win The Lottery?

If there's one thing you can say about playing the lottery, it's that everyone has an equal chance of winning. It doesn't matter where you come from, who you are, how much money you have in the bank - at the end of the day the winning number combination is a totally random one, and while there are certain methods you can use to help increase your odds of winning big, the chances of you winning in the first place are the same as everyone else's.

Or are they? Lately it seems that if you want to win the lotto, you'll have to up sticks and move - to Ireland of all places. That's because believe it or not, the Irish county of Mayo has seen a massive €7 million being won by lucky lotto players over the past month, leading some to believe that it might be the luckiest place in the world!

Mayo winners take it all

We don't know if we'd go so far as to call it the luckiest county on planet Earth, but when you look at the list of recent lotto winners, the conclusion seems a compelling one:

  • On 11 August, an anonymous couple struck it rich with a €500,000 win on the EuroMillions Plus.
  • On 2 August, Ger Murphy hit the jackpot with a €6.3 million.
  • Another Mayo man took home a fantastic €206,000 by matching 5 EuroMillions numbers and 1 Lucky Star.
  • And Rose Moan walked off with a prize of €18,000 after appearing on RTE's Winning Streak, a TV game show funded by the Irish National Lottery.

We wouldn't consider ourselves particularly superstitious, but it's starting to look more and more as if Mayo's the place to be - especially if you're looking to lay claim to the next big lotto jackpot!

Let your lotto millions take you places

Making the move to County Mayo may be a tad on the drastic side, but one thing's for sure, if you hit the big one on the EuroMillions, Powerball, UK Lotto or more, you'll be able to move to wherever the mood takes you. Some people call it going on holiday - but if you're a lotto winner, you can call it your lifestyle from now on, particularly when there are so many luxurious vacation rentals for you to enjoy around the world:

  • Knight House, Malibu - a 6-bedroom open plan estate with 7,700 square feet of living space, overlooking the stupendous Zuma beach below.
  • Villa Hotel Elisa, Aspen - stay for 7 days or more and pay $31,100 for the privilege of living in 17,700 square feet of extravagant country living.
  • Chalet Hike, Zermatt - if the USA doesn't float your boat, take a trip to Switzerland and pay up to $136,000 for the opulence of a five-star ski chalet with room for 13 guests.
  • Nygard Cay, Bahamas - live your dreams of beachtime luxury in the Bahamas at Nygard Cay, a $42,000 per night villa with 10 sumptuous bedrooms and every modern feature you can think of!

Actually it looks like moving to County Mayo might be worthwhile after all - if the chance to stay in such sophisticated surroundings is the end result! Of course you could keep your winning a little closer to home and simply buy your lotto tickets online at GiantLottos.com. It's quicker than uprooting your entire life and moving to Ireland, and ultimately, just as rewarding too!
