I don't play personally as money's quite tight. A friend of a friend won £173k on euromillions the other day.
Money from the tickets goes to good causes, and there is a chance of winning big, no matter how small it is.
If you can afford it, why not.
Sorry it was actually £119k not 173. Suppose if they're careful they'll get by . It was 5 numbers and one lucky star, he only bought the ticket because he needed to buy carrots and it wasn't enough to cover the minimum charge for the card machine!173k isn't to be sniffed at. Surely that was only 1 number away from the whole shebang?
Yes-happened to a friend of mine (who unfortunately now is dead) and she rang us after matching 5 plus the bonus a fair few years back and she was a bag of nerves at the time. She said they were going to ring her back and when they did it was only £1200 odd.About 6 years ago my mum got 5 numbers and won just over £1000. Nice but not life changing. I doubt I'll ever know anyone again that gets 5 numbers.
I play it every week and infrequently win a lucky dip. I haven't gotten 3 numbers in years. The frequent roll overs makes me think it's a bit of a con.
I do the National Lottery every Saturday. I pay a tenner each month (or £8 if only 4 saturdays that month). It's direct debit so I don't tend to miss it. The missus does the Post Code lottery by direct debit each month as well. Won a few tenners on that and also a few £30's on the Nat. Lottery. I'm thinking of changing my numbers though. I don't think 1,2,3,4,5,6 will ever come out in that order!
Member of the family won it... part of a syndicate. £3m each. They couldn’t be clearer... the worst thing that ever happened to them. It’s brought nothing but misery to their lives. I stopped playing it based on their experience
Just sent you a friend request.I actually know/knew three jackpot winners. One lives near me (still, despite the money), the other was my best mate's dad as part of a syndicate and the other was the dad of a girl I worked with.
On the rare occassions I do it rarely even get a number. Won a couple of tenners and a couple of free goes. I appear to be lucky for other people.
The one’s I’ve read about that ended in misery are typically the ones who think it’s going to be a bottomless pit of money and live like every day is a holiday, right up until the point where they realise they’ve reached the end of the bottomless pit.See i dont understand this. Seen a few articles with winners that say the same. Surely the fact you're always going to be financially secure is a good thing?
That’s the thing though....financial security but it comes with the following downsidesSee i dont understand this. Seen a few articles with winners that say the same. Surely the fact you're always going to be financially secure is a good thing?
