    Anyone had any lottery wins

    With this weeks Euro Millions expected to hit £112 Million has anyone any tales, the biggest I've had was £84 about six years ago but our syndicate at work got a £22 win last week which gets us 11 free goes this week (among 60 of us)

    Can you imagine winning a fiqure like this ?

    What a blow to our employers if our work group got something like this, makes me chuckle to even think about it.


    If you were playing for yourself and won the jackpot would you accept publicity? I know I would'nt even consider it.


    And yeah, I know its not likely (heard last week the odds are supposedly better of you getting hit by a meteor than hitting the Euro Jackpot) but it is nice to think about it and have a few plans in place.

    There a pad in Marbella that cost 11m to build on offer for 6m at the moment. Could handle that!

    I actually work with a guy (older chap) who won £200K and retired but after 6 months he came back to work with us (at a different company) cause he couldn't handle the boredom.

    went to school with a lad who's parents won 1.3 million, they were already very well off and invested the million in their two sons names for when they turned 21!

    I also worked with a woman that won £90,000 with 5 numbers.

    I don't buy a ticket often and have only won a tenner twice since the lottery began

    yes thanks.

    Won £4600 on the weekend Lady Diana died. The draw wasnt done on that Saturday, so checked on Sunday morning.One more number and would have won Millions.
    A school friend of mine won Millions years ago.She denies it.But she moved into a huge house,got a BMW convertible and a Range Rover.She still says she didnt win the Lottery ! But we all know she did.

    Never won anything on the lottery. Won £75 on a £1 scratch card though.

    Most Ive won is £95 with 4 numbers. I did win twice on euromillions last week though, but ive had loads of tenners this year (but its cost me a fortune to win them). Ive give up on the normal lottery now the prize money is cack and I wont play it now unless the jackpot is above 5 million.

    Ive got my fingers crossed for friday though

    Good luck everyone

    Makes me laugh (and I am as gulity as the next) when people are more interested in buying tickets when it gets to ove£30 million as if either there is more chance of winning the higher it gets or under £10 million isn't worth the effort as it isn't enough

    I've never won a penny on the lottery, then again, I've never spent a penny on it either.

    Simply dont wish to line the pockets of the selected individuals in Camelot. Good luck to anyone that wins though.

    I have done the "lotto" in Oz though! (Didnt win that either!)

    Thats not the way I look at it. I look at as, the lotto jackpot is normally 2.4million, if you share the jackpot with 2+ other people its still a lot of money, but its not enough to change my life forever. If the jackpot is 5 million + and you share it with 3 others then id be happy. I would like to win enough to change my life and to help my family and friends, 500k ish is not going to allow me to do that. Thats the reason why your better off playing when its a larger jackpot.

    never won anything but planning on winning the euromillions tomorrow, will be investing in a pimped out flat and a ferrari soon after X)

    Never won anything

    So 1.2m wouldnt be enough, but 1.6m would? your logic is flawed.

    I haven't won anything substantial, but an old school friend of mine won £7m a few years back!

    I've won £450 ... had to go to a newsagent to collect it! Guy wasn't happy giving me that much money.
    Was lotto hotpicks, randomly chose 3 numbers and they all came in.

    If you have won, would be good to find out where in the uk you got the ticket from. as in location ish.. not exact place lol.

    i won £600 on the lotto - got 5 numbers and my 6th was 1 away from the bonus ball.last night i got 5 numbers over 2 lines so i won a tenner yay...!

    You didnt take note of the '+' so its not flawed.
