One of the United Kingdom’s biggest lottery winners ended up spending $50 million of his winnings by splurging a massive $131k a week.
The news has left the world stunned because that’s what you call a serious style of spending that is usually unheard of. After all, most people take part in such lotteries so that they never need to work a day in their life again.
Therefore, they wish to spend days traveling endlessly and just purchasing a mansion or a luxury vehicle.
In this case, Colin Weir really did end up winning a huge amount that he says is surreal even for him to realize. But he is definitely a part of the few lucky individuals to end up with this staggering amount.
It’s all thanks to the jackpot he got from Euromillions who is super grateful for because never in a million years would he ever imagine himself to be in this position. But it’s a blessing for him and he recalled it as the most memorable day of his life.
While $200 million is more than anyone would have ever imagined to finish, he really did spend seriously and within eight years, he was already done and dusted with a quarter of the figure.
Weir explained how he worked as a cameraman for the Scottish broadcaster STV. This was before his win and after that, he never gave that job a second glance. After all, he had no reason to.
He separated from his wife soon later and then he died tragically from sepsis. Now the question is where did his wealth go? It went down to his two children who made the most of the remains.
So where did his money go? Well, he spent it all on some very expensive things. For instance, he spent it on soccer club investments, a charitable trust, property, sports cars, and whatnot. And it’s believed that he really did lead his life to the fullest.
