What do lottery winners buy?
Australian lottery winners have very similar ideas about what to do with their winnings. Many plan to pay off their mortgage or buy their first property. Spending money on new cars or travel is also on top of the list of new millionaires. But not all lottery winners just buy things for themselves. Helping their closest family members with paying off their debt or donating money to charities is also quite common.
