What would you do if your dream came true, and you were to win a million in a casino gambling jackpot? Are your decisions about what to do with the money typical, or are they different from those of most people?
Here’s for thought…
You really were not in the mood to go to the casino, but your best friend kept badgering you, calling you on the phone and asking why you wanted to sit at home on a beautiful Friday evening. So, you hauled yourself up and got ready to go. At the casino, you are half-heartedly pressing the button and sometimes pulling the lever on a fruit slots machine, when all of a sudden, the machine locks up. Lights start to flash, bells start to ring, and the screen lights up with the stark words “Call Attendant”.
Dumbfounded, you sit and stare at the machine. Your friend runs up, yelling, “You won! You won!” and dances wildly around the stool where you are sitting. Suddenly, it dawns on you – the jackpot. You have won the jackpot, and it is a big one, a million dollars! You are in a daze as the casino manager comes over to verify that you did indeed win. He then congratulates you, and asks that you follow him to the casino offices in order to sign some papers and arrange to receive your winnings. You break into a grin as applause follows you until you step out of the main casino area. A million dollars! Now, you are very glad your friend convinced you to spend a few hours at the casino!
Everyone who enjoys gambling dreams of winning a million dollar jackpot. Daydreams like this are a part of the fun of gambling. Have you ever thought about what you would do with a million dollars if your dreams were to come true, and you actually did hit the jackpot? That is an awful lot of money, enough to change the life of just about anyone! Most people answer this question by admitting that the first thing they would do is pay off all of their debts in full.
The next step for the majority of punters would be the purchase of either a new house or a new car, and some would also like a new boat or a little two-seater airplane to go along with the rest! Some folks claim they would take a long vacation or a cruise, and buy a new wardrobe with their casino jackpot. Others would prudently invest a good portion of their winnings, and afterwards have a little fun with the interest that accrued quarterly on their money.
You also have people who would take a portion of their jackpot winnings and pay for their children’s college education, or perhaps go back to school themselves. Some would give a portion of their gambling winnings to charity or to relatives, while many claim they would purchase rental property, and live on the rent proceeds. Still others would start their own businesses.
Since everyone is an individual, more than likely no two people would choose to do the exact same things if they were to win a million dollar jackpot at a casino. It is really a good idea to take some time to just sit and think about what you would do with your gambling winnings if you were lucky enough to be gambling in a casino at just the right moment to win a million dollar jackpot. You have just as much of a chance at winning as anyone else! Good luck!
