Perth Apprentice Planning To Buy $20,000 Worth Of Lego After Winning Lottery

It's a fun question to pose to anyone: what would be the first thing you'd buy after scoring it big on the lottery.

Some would buy their favourite car; others might splash out on an amazing holiday or go on a weeklong bender. The possibilities are endless and some people treat themselves while others might give to their friends, family or less needy.

Well, one bloke in Perth has revealed what he's planning on buying after winning Lotterywest's Set For Life. The prize is $20,000 a month, every month for the next 20 years, which ends up being a cheeky $4.8 million.

That's a very sizeable amount of money to come into your account every month and surely would allow you to splurge every four weeks.

The man in his 20s, who didn't want to be identified because why would you when you've won that much money, said his first purchase will be shit tons of Lego.

"I would have been happy with winning $10," he told a Lotterywest official. "On my 'silly' list is a plan to go to Legoland and buy $20,000 worth of Lego."

The best thing about this story is that even though he'll get a big cash injection every month, he plans to keep working his apprentice job.

Lotterywest spokesperson Jennie Fitzhardinge said: "The fact our most recent winner says that while the win is life changing and will give him a comfortable lifestyle, the fact he will continue to work, is what his game is all about."

There are tons of Lego sets out there that could rack up a $20,000 price tag.

We revealed earlier this month that people were flogging their rare, unused sets for up to $10,000 - but when you've got that much money you'd want to be building everything imaginable.

Take this listing of a still sealed Lego Star Wars 10179 Millennium Falcon UCS set that's on the auction site for a whopping $11,437.

In the past a solid gold 14-karat Lego set of Star Wars Figurine C3PO sold for $8,507. Not too shabby at all.

Sales of Lego stuff surged during May thanks to Channel 9's Lego Masters, which is kind of like MasterChef but instead of food, it's Lego they're creating.

eBay has told that two Lego products were being sold every second in the time when Lego Masters was on TV.
