You might think that almost everyone would quit their jobs if they won the lottery but a recent UK survey by Lottosend has provided some surprising results.

According to the 1000 people surveyed, only 53% of them have said that they would quit their jobs after hitting the jackpot.

Interestingly, 18-24-year-olds are less likely to hand in their notice but the figure rises through the age groups with over 70% of 55-64-year-olds proving more eager to quit their jobs and enjoy a life of leisure.

    Only if I won a ridiculous amount of money, like £20m, anything under that, I would probably work another 1 or 2 solid years and earn as much as I can in that time. Great post :)
