Mark Gardiner won a record prize of £ 11 million and concluded that all his problems were a thing of the past. However, though his present problems vanished, he got into new ones that he was not trained for or capable of handling. Mark won the jackpot with his friend and business partner Paul Maddison. They won a record £ 22 million; Mark’s share was £ 11 million. Paul shunned the limelight and faded into the background while Mark decided to have some fun.
Before he could believe it, Mark went through half of his winnings. Even as he bought expensive cars and houses, gave to friends and relatives, married and then divorced, his problems never seemed to end. His family disowned him just as if he had committed a crime. Finally he regained his bearings and is now wiser and remarried to his first wife (a childhood sweetheart) whom he had divorced when he was penniless.
However, not every story is as heart breaking as the one mentioned above. There have been very many people who have made good on their fortune while remaining grounded. Ianthe Fullagar, a student, won an awe-inspiring £ 7,055,142. After the understandable screaming in disbelief she settled down and called her boyfriend and family and shared the news with them. Ianthe intends to share her new found wealth with her near ones and to continue to pursue her degree in law. The only thing she planned to buy was a brand new car.
An anonymous winner donated his winnings of $3 million to his church without batting an eye. The church has decided to expand to accommodate its growing congregation and will also donate some of the money to charities.
