In the past 18 years the National Lottery has created 3,000 millionaires. But what have the lucky winners spent their money on?
According to a study by Camelot and Oxford Economics, over Â£8.5bn has been won since the National Lottery launched in 1994, with the average win coming in at Â£2.8m. The average win laid end to end in Â£10 notes would stretch for 25 miles.
So where do hot tubs feature in the spending priorities of new Lotto winners?
Hot Tubs came out top!
Whilst over Â£460m has been spent on buying new cars – caravans, walk-in wardrobes, electric gates, games rooms and snooker tables have all been high on the shopping lists of those lucky enough to scoop top prize. But it has been revealed today that hot tubs are best when it comes the percentage ownership, with 29% of winners choosing to install their very own bubbling hot tub in their swish homes.
“That’s almost 1,000 of the very best hot tubs installed into the homes ofÂ lottery millionaires which is a truly staggering statistic. It just goes to show how enjoyable hot tubs are and when the financial barriers to ownership are removed, a huge proportion of the population would choose to own one. When you compare this figure to the hot tub ownership proportion in the general population of less than 1% of homes having hot tubs, this is staggering news,” commented Nick Clamp, Editor of WhatSpa? Magazine.
