Numerous times have we witnessed people who won the 649 jackpot declare that a jackpot win is not going to bring any changes within them. However, the fact is more than half of those who won 649 jackpot moved to a bigger house in the countryside. More than two thirds of the winners handed over more than £ 1 million to relative and well wishers or friends. Over two thirds of all big lotto winners own overseas property. 90% of the big time lotto winners were in the workforce when they won, however, only 25% are still working.
