An off-the-wall survey recently found that nearly 4 people in every 100 would give up their partner for a $10,000 lottery win. And the result gets worse as the winning money goes up.

An amazing 9 out of 100 would give them up for $100 million or more. But there's some good news...

Luckily nearly 78% would stick by their partner, no matter what the winning lottery amount was.


The survey by Holos Research also found some unusual facts:

  • 58.37% said they would want to win the lottery over being famous (3.35%) or find the love of their life (38.28%).

  • A vast majority of those surveyed (70%) said that money can't buy happiness, but 30% said it can get you pretty darn close.

  • 62.68% of people, despite disliking their in-laws, would not give up their mother in law for any type of lottery winning. 13.64% said they would give her up for less than $10,000. Just enough to buy their spouse an apology gift.


The survey went on to ask if they won a $100 million lottery jackpot, which of these would they do first? The results were interesting:

  • Roll around naked in $100 bills (1.91%)

  • Give money to the homeless (12.20%)

  • Quit your job (24.88%)

  • Invest half of it (61%)

What would they be most likely to do if they found a winning lottery ticket on the street They said:

  • Keep it for themselves (65.07%)

  • Try to find the owner (33.01%)

  • Destroy it (1.91%)

. A total of 418 individuals were polled, with a margin of error of 5%.
