I wouldn't mind being treated to 4 "good courses" at my favourite restaurant!
A good few things in my communtiy and surrounding areas have recieved lotto funding which I am pleased about. Having said that some of the wacky things that have been funded as "good causes" are beyond belief. Remember when they gave Man U thousands for some training person for their office staff.
I dislike scratch cards as they are not regulated enough and can become addictive - I have seen people in school uniform buying loads of them. I think the age limit for these should be at least raised to 18 or preferably 21.
"I don't think any Lottery jackpot winners are on record as saying they thought it should be abolished."
But some regret it :-) "LOTTO winner Michael Carroll has said he regrets ever winning the Pounds 9.7million jackpot and wants his old job back as a binman. The 22-year-old claims that the money has brought him nothing but aggravation, having blown a fortune on drugs, drink, junk food and banger racing. The winner, famed for his Chav bling, said: "Winning has been non stop aggro.I wish I'd never won the money.There's a lot of bitterness and jealousy from people. Everyone is fighting for a piece of the pie. I was happier working as a binman."
If you win, don't tell anyone. Don't go wild and spend spend. Invest a large sum to secure your future. Don't buy flash cars etc.They'd only get scratched. That is what I would do. I'm tight fisted as it is, and a big win would not change that. Yes I would spend,(mostly on holidays, home improvement but within reason.) but certainly would not go wild. I would give to charity, but would shun all publicity.
