From Millionaire to Billionaire: Journey of the World's Richest Individuals

From Millionaire to Billionaire

We’ve been asking ourselves this hypothetical question ever since we were kids: “What would I do if I had 1 million dollars?” Some of us only dream of having a million dollars, while others try to earn it. Some people already have this kind of money, while others try to win it.

Back in the day, you would have to go to a casino and try out your luck if you were hoping to become a multi-millionaire overnight. Well, nowadays, you don’t even have to go to a casino - you can play online slots at Betway Casino from the comfort of your chair. You might just be a click away from your first million dollars, and then, who knows? You might even be another click away from your first billion dollars!

But you know what they say: money goes faster than you can earn (or win) it. When you look at the billionaires on Forbes’ Rich List, you’d think they don’t have to work another day in their lives. Still – they do, and although they’re already rich, they’re trying to be richer. That’s how they turned their millions into billions.

This may be easier for some than others – it really depends on the person. Let’s take Mark Zuckerberg for example. With a couple of likes and a few new Facebook users, he got to turn his millions into billions faster than you can say “like” (well… in approximately one year). However, for others such as Britain’s Lord Sugar, the journey was a bit harder, taking him 44 years to make the leap.

Take a look at this latest infographic showing the journeys of the 100 richest people in the world – who knows, it might inspire you to make your big leap! See who managed to turn millions into billions with a bit of luck, and who had to work the hardest to achieve their billionaire status.
