Nation gets lottery fever after massive jackpot

Water-cooler talk across China has been awash with theories on how to spend a fortune after someone from Henan province won nearly 360 million yuan ($52.7 million) on Thursday.

The prize is the country's biggest jackpot to date.

Despite the fact that the lucky winner has not yet stepped forward to claim the prize, many have an opinion on how much happiness it might buy.

"It's incredible." That was the verdict of 75 percent of the 140,000 people taking part in an online survey at yesterday.

Another online poll, organized by, the official website of Guangzhou Daily newspaper, found that most people would rush out and "buy a car and house". After that, the consensus was that "travel around the world" and "charity" should follow. Next, people would make "investments" and share their wealth with friends and relatives.

"If I were the winner, I would cash the money into one-yuan coins and build a house with the coins," joked one netizen, tagged Kunde, who commented on, one of China's biggest interactive entertainment portals.

"I would quit my job, buy a plane, and book a ticket for space travel," said netizen Milk Cow on, a popular bulletin board.

Lottery tickets are sold on the Chinese mainland to raise money for government welfare services and sports development.

The winning ticket was bought in Anyang city, in Central China's Henan province. The ticket-buyer purchased 44 identical "Double Color Ball" tickets issued by the China Welfare Lottery at a cost of 176 yuan. The lucky transaction was made at 2:55 pm last Thursday, according to the provincial welfare lottery center.
