The Best Countries To Live In If You Win The Lottery

It’s everyone’s dream to wake up one morning and find a notification informing them that they have won the jackpot. Once discovering that you have become an instant millionaire, your world changes. All your “what if’s” now become “where to?”  With millions at your disposal, you are free to live anywhere in the world.

Ask someone what they would do if they won the lottery, and you will more than likely get a vague “buy a house”, or a non-committal “go on a long vacation.” But if you won – if you really won a huge lottery jackpot – would you know what to do? Where to go?

Here are some of the world’s best cities to move to once you hit the big time.



While it may be better known for its rich history, pristine beaches and bucket-list tourist destinations, Vietnam should also be on your lottery destination list.

For lottery players attracted lush mountains, bustling cities and golden sand beaches, Vietnam is a definite contender on the lottery bucket list to visit or to stay.

Known mostly for its pristine beaches, old-world charm and vibrant colour, Vietnam is both exotic and compelling.

This country has one of the fastest-growing economies in the world. It is a fascinating country full of business opportunities and one that offers a superb standard of living.

Gold Coast Australia

Gold Coast Australia

The Gold Coast is a vibrant modern city built on 57km of beautiful coastline with all year sunshine. With retirement on the cards, the Gold Coast is probably closest to what you’d picture seeing yourself in a stunning beach house, where the sun always beams down.

Living in Australia means that you could easily travel to nearby places like Thailand and New Zealand.

For lottery jackpot winners who prefer the city life, the Gold Coast is only an hour’s drive from Brisbane, one of Australia’s biggest cities. This means it’s far enough away to be free from the hustle and bustle, but close enough that you can immerse yourself in the city life.


England – Shakespeare, Big Ben and red busses

While England may not be the exotic destination on this list, you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to what to do and where to live.  From quiet Chiswick to the bustling Notting Hill – the choice is yours.

There are some truly lavish spots that would put a dent in even the biggest lottery winner’s bank account. The country offers a stable economy, multiple financial opportunities, advanced technology and is fabulous for a traveller, sitting right on Europe’s doorstep.


France – Romantic Retirement

France has a nearly unparalleled quality of life: amazing cuisine, rich history and culture, beautiful landscapes and cities.

Do you dream of a house set in the vast, green expanse of the Loire valley, or would you prefer an apartment in the French city of your choice? Thankfully, as a newly crowned jackpot winner, you can take your time and decide for yourself.

With your 9 to 5 job a thing of the past, you will be happy to know that the French generally enjoy one- to two-hour lunches every day. Most stores close during lunch, between 6 pm and 7 pm in the evening, and all day on Sunday. Living in France will definitely force you to relax and simply enjoy life.

Costa Rica - Active Retirement

Lottery players who are adventure junkies will love Costa Rica (Spanish for Rich Coast).  The country has the most breath-taking waterfalls, rivers, lakes, and miles of pristine beaches. It also boasts dramatic volcanoes and diverse wildlife. Why not extend a Costa Rican adventure into a year-round lifestyle after winning this week’s jackpots?

Italy – Passion and culture

In addition to housing nearly 50 billionaires, Italy is home to many destinations frequented by the super-rich, including the Amalfi Coast, Portofino, Positano, Capri, Cinque Terre, Milan, and Venice.

The official language in Malta is English. Even in the dead of winter, while European capitals such as Berlin and Paris are freezing, temperatures in Malta hover in the balmy 60s.

There are few things in this world that can inspire more awe and wonder than a beautiful horizon. There is something magical about the meeting place of earth and sky that prompts mankind to wonder “what lies beyond?”
