Euro Millions 166M

This is as usual causing a massive increase in ticket sale. For example, I was in a business meeting today at 11:30am and all ten present had already got their usual tickets and some extra lucky dips.

There is no more chance of winning whatever the prize fund. What on earth would you want 166M for? That sort of money will invite people into your world that you don’t want. The perfect win for me would be 3-5M, pay out a few gifts to family and friends then retire in comfort.

If you end up having to deal with 166M you need advisors etc and whatever you did with the money would bring something extra into your life to worry about!

Even giving away a large proportion would cause headaches, who, how much, family, charity?

Just let me have 5M and that will do nicely.

I shall reflect on your wise words whilst relaxing on the beach of my tropical island retreat, waiting for my personal assistant to come and tell me that my lobster lunch is ready.

I might even consider sending you five million, just for the sound advice you offered me before my windfall.

Thanks FE, that has sorted out where about 150M of my big win will go if I get it. Just invite me now and then for a holiday on your island.

There have been numerous documentaries regarding people with a lot to spend and have bought tropical islands, all have been disaster stories.

It isn’t as easy as you think even with real big money.

Lets just dream for now, I assume you have a ticket for tonight?

You could buy News International; what would you spend the other £165 million on though?

I was thinking of buying Tevez off City then making him play for my local Pub team for a few years...

I won it last Friday.

Not all of it you understand, just £2.80, but it'll pay for my next ticket!

Money can't buy happiness. Having said that, I'd rather be rich and miserable than poor and miserable. But were I to win that kind of money I would do my best to keep it quiet for as long as possible. I certainly wouldnt need any advisors though. Not while this forum is up and running.

I think if I won that sort of money then I wouldn't be bothered about how to spend it.

Might have to splash out on a round in the pub, or just buy the pub.

Well who ever wins it good luck to them.

For reference, Camelot have a team of financial advisers in place for all jackpot winners.

Some seem to take heed of the advice, i'm fairly sure this guy didn't

If I won ~ Well I'd have to buy a ticket first ~ but . If I won, I would enjoy thinking out a way, or ways, to embarrass my extremely rich and pompous cousin. That being done, I'd probably give the rest away.
