    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

    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

    And if you didn't? 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.

    I sometimes play for fun. One time a week or two. It can be pretty joyful sometimes. I mostly play it at this websitehttps://flipboard.com/@davidclappe20....com-1633g0oky but it is extremely hard to find legit online service. There are a lot of scammers in this industry. Offline casinos are pretty fun though. I would recommend to visit it for once just for experience.

    I haven't played the lottery in years but I admire the persistence of those who have played the same numbers for decades.

    My Nanna has played the same ticket each week for years upon years - assuming £2 per week (which is the cost of 1 ticket, and doesn't take into account the fact there's 2 draws) over 29 years (as she was playing before I was born), that's a liberal estimate of at least £3,000 on lottery tickets.

    I play several once a month. (Don't see that option in the poll.)
    It goes automatically, so they inform me when I won something. That's easier than have to check myself every month. :-)
