You’ve just won the lottery, and now you can kiss your boring old desk job goodbye forever!

And if you feel the call of the wild, it’s time to say “hakuna matata” and spend your lotto winnings on a luxurious wildlife vacation.

Teeming with hundreds of species you won’t see anywhere else, the Galapagos should be the number one destination for any wealthy wildlife lover!

Charles Darwin visited the Galapagos and was dazzled by the unique ecosystem that he found there. In fact, the animals of the Galapagos were a major inspiration for his theory of evolution!

Numerous tour agencies on the island offer opportunities that range from family safaris to scuba diving and other amazing ways to see some of the rarest wildlife on earth!

What you’ll see: Giant tortoises, blue-footed boobies, marine iguanas, Darwin finches … and hundreds of other species!

2. Masai Mara, Kenya

Keep your arms and legs inside the jeep at all times. Seriously though, here’s the place to see all the big cats that could eat you, if they weren’t busy chasing wildebeest!

Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve in the heart of the Serengeti is probably the most famous safari destination in the world.

Besides being a home for leopards and lions, the park is located in the middle of the “Great Migration” – the annual migration of millions of zebras, wildebeest, and gazelles.

Whether explored by foot, car, or even hot-air balloon, Masai Mara definitely puts the “wild” in “wildlife”!

What you’ll see: The “Big 5”– lions, leopards, elephants, buffalos and rhinos – plus just a few zebras and wildebeests!

3. Komodo, Indonesia

Don’t forget to pack your coat of armour when you travel to Komodo. This island in the Indonesian archipelago is home to a real-life dragon!

Reaching a staggering 3 metres in length, the Komodo dragon is the world’s largest reptile.

The best way to view Komodos and the island’s other impressive wildlife is to travel in large groups led by park rangers.

And make sure you let them know if you cut yourself shaving that morning – Komodos can smell blood from up to 18 kilometres away!

What you’ll see: Komodo dragons, macaque monkeys, cockatoos

4. Sichuan Province, China

5 Wondrous Wildlife Safaris
Pandas in Sichuan

Sichuan is in the heart of China, and is home to China’s most famous animal – the giant panda.

Though still highly endangered, this bamboo-loving bear has seen its numbers increase over the past several decades, thanks in large part to the province’s panda sanctuaries.

A guided tour will let you see giant pandas living peacefully in one of the many reserves throughout these sanctuaries.

And while you’re in the neighbourhood, maybe you’ll manage to see some of the other interesting wildlife of China like the Sichuan takin, a species of goat-antelope!

What you’ll see: Giant pandas, red pandas, Sichuan takins,

5. Vancouver Island, Canada

When you’ve had your fill of land-based adventures, head to Vancouver Island, off the West coast of Canada. There you can hop on a boat and get up close and personal with the whales!

Vancouver Island is smack-dab in the middle of the migratory routes of both humpback and grey whales. It’s also home to several permanent pods of orcas, an animal as iconic as it is majestic.

Take in the breathtaking Pacific Northwest coastline and prepare to feel tiny as you pull alongside these massive marine mammals!

What you’ll see: Humpback Whales, grey whales, orcas


These are just a few of the amazing places you can travel on your lottery fortune!

Eurojackpot vs EuroMillions : Which European Lotto Is Better?

Which European lottery to play?

In the lottery world, Europe is renowned for its two enormous, transnational lotteries – EuroMillions and Eurojackpot.

But if you’re new to the European lottery scene, it can be tricky to pick between the two. Especially since both lotteries may seem similar at first glance, what with their similar game structures!

To help you out, LottoExpress has rounded up some quick facts and stats to help you decide!

 

EuroMillions

One of Europe’s oldest and largest lotteries, EuroMillions is played across 9 European countries. And now, thanks to the new changes to its game structure, players can expect bigger jackpots than ever!

 

  • Current Jackpot at €156 MILLION
  • Previous record jackpot of €190 Million

  • 13 prize tiers
  • Minimum guaranteed jackpots of €17 million
  • Occasional Superdraws held throughout the year, with special jackpots of around €130 million!

  • Draws every Friday, at 21:00 EET

 

 

So which lottery should I play?

In a nutshell, EuroMillions offers bigger jackpots and payouts – but this also means it has higher odds of winning the jackpot.

On the other hand, while Eurojackpot has relatively smaller jackpot amounts, it has better odds of winning the jackpot.

So it depends on the type of lottery player you are! Do you want to ‘go big or go home’ with EuroMillions or play it smart and safe, with Eurojackpot?

And if you STILL cannot pick between the two, you can always enjoy the best of both worlds with our exclusive Euro pass lottery combo! This lets you get tickets for both European lotteries at 1 great prize, whose combined jackpots are worth €246 MILLION in total, right now!

5 Things You Should NEVER Do After Winning the Lottery

How to Prevent a Big Lottery Win from Ruining Your Life?

If you’ve won a major lottery win, congratulations! Now here’s what you need to know about keeping that cash…

Imagine you’re holding the winning numbers for the US$205 MILLION American Powerball jackpot.

Winning the lottery is a definitely a life-changing moment – but not always for the better.

Sudden wealth brings its own host of problems and news feeds are littered with stories of major lottery winners who lost it all.

So if you’re lucky enough to land a substantial sum of money on the lottery, here are the top 5 things NOT to do.

 

 1. GOING PUBLIC

Why: You’ll attract unwanted media scrutiny, attention from “long-lost distant relatives” and scammers looking to make a quick buck.

Do This Instead: Remain anonymous when you claim the prize. Many state lotteries allow you to send a trusted representative on your behalf.  If people around you notice the change in your lifestyle – the new house, new car – it’s still a good idea to say as little as possible. Mention you’ve come into money, but don’t say how much.

what not to do after winning the lottery

2. QUITTING YOUR JOB THE NEXT DAY

Why: You may have won a life-changing amount of money. But this is NOT the time to make hasty decisions.

Do This Instead: Take some time and allow your win to sink in. Many financial experts recommend not making any major financial-type decisions – like quitting your job – within the first few months.

 

3. HAVING NO FINANCIAL PLAN

Why: Even if you’ve won hundreds of millions in the lottery, you’ll be surprised at how quickly you can lose it.

Do This Instead: After you’ve knocked the top two or three things off your bucket list, it’s time to get serious and consult a professional. If you want to stay wealthy for years to come, seek financial help and make a plan for the future.

4. HIRING THE FIRST FINANICAL PLANNER LISTED ON GOOGLE

Why: You’re trusting this person with your money. Do you want someone who’ll do what’s best for you or what’s best for his own pocket?

Do This Instead: Do your research on different financial planners. Interview the ones who make your short-list and compare their responses before you make any decisions. Find out about their experience and the types of strategies they have in mind. Finally, make sure you understand how they’ll be charging you.

 

 5. TRYING TO HELP EVERYONE

Why: It’s great that you want help out your family and friends. But helping the wrong way can often lead to disastrous results.

Do This Instead: Consider the impact your lavish gifts and donations might make on your nearest and dearest. For instance, buying your folks a million dollar house might seem great on paper, but would they be able to handle the property taxes on their own?


So now that you know what NOT to do after winning the lottery, you’ll know exactly what to do if you end up winning one of the world’s biggest lottos.

Plus, when you play with LottoExpress, you are guaranteed your privacy. Whether you win US$5 or US$5 Million, you are never asked to make your winnings public. We ensure that you start your new life, hassle-free!

5 Lavish Ways to Spend Your Powerball Millions

Hey Powerball players, remember the movie Brewster’s Millions?

It’s a 1985 comedy set in New York and stars Richard Pryor as Monty Brewster, a guy who strikes it rich. One day, Brewster inherits a whopping $300 million from his late uncle, on the condition that he must first spend $30 million in 30 days.

But according to the rules of the will, he isn’t allowed to give the money away. He also can’t gamble it away or acquire any belongings that he didn’t already have. So Brewster has to come up with some creative ways to blow the cash!

With the upcoming US Powerball draw clocking in at a lip-quivering US$361 MILLION, spending tons of dough Brewster-style should be no problem.

In honour of this record-setting jackpot, LottoExpress brings you five New York-inspired activities that cost a pretty penny:

 

1. Eat the world’s priciest breakfast

The menu at New York’s Norma’s Restaurant features “The Zillion Dollar Lobster Frittata.” Topped with 10 ounces of caviar, this insane omelet costs $1,000.

2. Buy a round for the house at a Yankees game

At $3 a pop, the famous Nathan’s frank might seem downright frugal. But with Yankee Stadium’s capacity at 49,642, the tab for everyone to eat one will run you $148,926!

3. Take Jay-Z out for a night on the town

“Hova” knows how to party! Legendary hip-hop artist Jay-Z recently rang up a tab for over $250,000 on a night out with his pal Kanye West. An evening on the town with him will put you in an Empire State of Mind!

4. Book a room with a view

The $50,000-a-night Ty Warner Penthouse suite is a 4,300-square-foot palace atop NYC’s Four Seasons hotel. Complete with panoramic views of Manhattan, a 24-hour butler, and a personal trainer, why not make this your home base for your NYC adventure?
