Every casino player hopes to win the jackpot. On the one hand, the anticipation of a multi-million prize may end up in disappointment. On the other, it is necessary to prepare for sudden wealth in order to keep yourself from rash decisions.
Big money drives unprepared people distracted. We know it from movies. There are also real stories, when random millionaires pour their money down the drain and couldn’t come back to their former way of life. This should come as no surprise that each new-made moneybag is tempted to turn their life into an everlasting holiday. A lot of friends and relatives appear out of nowhere immediately, ready to help. They can afford everything that was prohibitively expensive earlier, but soon the desire to spend more and more results in the situation when all money is spent.
Of course, the chances to break a big jackpot are not high, but if you start gambling, you should prepare yourself for such a scenario. To begin, think over your first reaction to the big win. Most likely, you will decide to impart your happiness with relatives. But imagine how they will react to such an event. They can offer to celebrate such an occasion, not at their own expense of course, or ask for a loan, or tell your story to their friends. Here lies the rub: the lucky one may become a golden calf for swindlers or racketeers, if the rumors about a lucky gambler come up them.
The next stage of preparation for the jackpot should be the improvement of your financial literacy. Recall the proverbial wisdom “a penny saved is a penny got” or “money begets money”. So, think over how to preserve and increase the wealth. By the way, the ability to plan your expenses is useful even if the fortune is not smile on you in gambling.
