After reading about a British man that won £76 million on the Euro Millions after forgetting to check his ticket for 6 weeks I decided to play the Lotto yesterday for the first time in years. The jackpot was £15 million and there were 2 lucky winners, sadly I was not one of them. :-? I also bought two other tickets and got one number, which was not enough to win anything.

Anybody else here play the lottery? Is it a waste of money to play every week? I think it's nice to plan what you would do with that kind of money and I know I'd definitely stop working! I'd purchase a luxury flat on the top floor too.

Nope I hate uncertainty, especially the extremely high uncertainty of playing lotto.

Another huge jackpot tomorrow for the EuroMillions New Year's Day rollover which stands at £115 million plus 10 guaranteed millonaires via the UK raffle. After tomorrow I will stop for a while as I've wasted £10 in a little over a week.

Nah, I have no interest...I’ve got millions that grow and grow :P

Plus, I believe that if someone’s gonna become a millionaire or billionaire overnight, it should be someone who needs the money and doesn’t have a lot of $ already 8-)

And if you didn't? :P I have five figures saved up but I'd never say no to seven figures, it's truly life changing.

I just wish it was easier to win. I don't know whether to play or not.

If I didn't have much $ I would probably give it a try, why not. :wink:
