Psychologists claim that very often people who have won a large sum in the lottery have an overwhelming desire to waste money left and right. After all, the money went easy, and it seems to a person that there will always be a drive now. But, very quickly, the lucky one faces a problem – the inability to contain expensive purchases. For example, a huge house or a luxury car. And some even do not have time to buy anything and buy – money flows like water.

Rosemary Obiakor, a resident of Nigeria, was also lucky in the lottery. The gain was, however, not million, but impressive enough – about 16,000 euros.
