5 Things I’d Do If I Won The Lottery


Like most people I’ve often found myself dreaming about winning the lottery, so if I was lucky enough for the dream to become a reality here is what I would do with the the money…

1. Buy a house 

This would be right at the top of our list as we currently rent our home. Sadly, it’s looking like only a lottery win will ever sort us out with a home of our own!

2. Book a holiday

I’m loving traveling at the moment and I’m always planning our next trip. A lottery win would mean that we could book our dream holiday to Orlando.

3. Buy a new car

Who doesn’t want a shiny fancy new car? Me and my husband currently share a car so if we were to win the lottery we’d definitely get a car each. I’m not sure exactly what car I would go for but definitely something bigger than we have now, with plenty of boot space and room for the kids.

4. Save for the kids

We currently save £40 every month for the kids, which goes into savings accounts for when they are older. They should end up with a decent amount which will help towards them buying a house, but it would be great to be able to give them more than this.

5. Pay off debts

We’d get rid of a couple of old debts that we have and pay off the credit card. It would feel so satisfying to be completely debt free!


You’ve got to be in it to win it! So I’ve been playing the lottery online with Lottoland, who kindly gave me £25 credit to try out their website and I’ve been loving how easy it is to use.


Lottoland uses Lotto betting, which put simply means that they make a bet on official lotteries draws — specifically, which lottery balls, or numbers, will be drawn in those draws. You pick the numbers that you think will be drawn and if you guess correctly, you will win prizes — usually in the form of cash.

There are loads of lotteries to choose from including the Irish Lotto, PowerBall, OZ Lotto, Swedish Lotto and many more.

There are also other games and scratchcards to play. I’ve been really enjoying the scratchcards and have actually won nearly £40 so far, yay!

What would you do if you won the lottery?

Thanks for reading.

    I would just work 1 day a week and go on lots of holidays! Maybe buy an apartment in Manhatten too ? #bigpinklink

    Being debt free would make life much easier! We always dream about what we would do too. Building our house without the debt would be nice and only having to work part time would be awesome! 🙂

    Great list. I think I would :
    Pay off my mortgage, save money for the kids future, do my driving lessons {and buy a car}, buy another house to rent out and start a business and go on holiday x#MarvMondays

    If I won I’d buy a house, travel, have driving lessons and get a car, get married and go on a big shopping spree☺ x

    If I won (if I played) I would do everything you have said plus buy a flat as an investment for our children who are now nearing the age of leaving home, have a girls week away for my 50th next year and donate a sizeable sum to Cancer Research. #MarvellousMondays.

      Sounds good. I would like to give some money to charity too x

    I think ours would be the exact same things, and maybe even a little holiday home alongside my parents. Ahh we can dream ey?

    I’m with you here, my husband and I always talk about what we would do if we won the lottery and the first thing is get that deposit down for a house. It’s just so expensive these days! #marvmondays

      Once you have kids, saving becomes impossible doesn’t it? 🙁 x

    I would take the kids off travelling for a year and pay the school off to keep their places! 😀 Thanks for joining us at the #bigpinklink

    • Emma
      July 27, 2016 / 12:59 pm

      Oh yes, a cleaner would defo be on my list too! x

    I love thinking about what I’d do if we won the lottery, although not for too long otherwise I’d just feel depressed and to be honest we really shouldnt be as we are so grateful for everything we have 🙂 Lots of these would be on my list, a nice house and car upgrade definitely and that dream holiday, absolutely! Thanks for linking this up to #MarvMondays. Emily
