    I find it funny that people shout "you've just GOT to play the lottery as its 85 million pound tonight" as if the usual 10 million quid is too little to bother entering for.

    Yes please do - it'll be more for me to win!



    Apparently if you were to bank it, the interest would be in the region of £8000 a day. I think I could just about scrape by on that. When not flying to California for WCS lessons in my private jet, of course

    I'd have thought that you'd get much more than £8000 a day.

    At just 5% non-compounded interest, you'd get £4.25million a year. That's around £11,500 a day. But I bet that you could get a much better rate of interest if you had that much to invest...

    I'd hire Icey as an accountant to deal with all that sort of stuff. I'm sure she wouldn't embezzle .

    Sure. If it was me, I'd be putting at least half the interest back into the principle, so that it never became worth less in real terms....

    Should be enough keft for a pretty good time though!

    I have been pretty much against "The Lottery" since it came out.

    Is it called regressive taxation? I think the theory goes (although I don't know the figures so I may be way, way wrong on this) those on lower incomes play it more, and spend a greater proportion of their incomes on tickets, than those on higher salaries because a win might just lift them out of the economic misery they are in. It's invisible taxation dressed up as "a bit of fun" - I think the principles and purposes behind it border on the corrupt.

    I'm not against anybody making money (by fairly legal means) but these lotteries trade on people's discontent and hopes.

    And I've never won a bean on it.


    Have a nice day

    Clive Long M.O.G.

    but I wouldn't say no to a couple of million meself

    What would I do if I won.....Fullfill my parents dreams and my brothers. I would go off travlling around the world again, buy myself a lovely home. Would love to open my own art sudio and fitness & holistic health centre. I also would like to open my own dance venues (have already lined up my teachers and DJ's )
    Dont want much really

    Not on bank deposit you couldn't. The London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) on Sterling is currently around 4.6% for deposits up to 12 months.

    We don't have currency import/export restrictions any more, so why would anyone pay you more than 4.6% to borrow your £80m, if they can borrow the same amount for exactly that rate in the London markets?

    If you find someone who will pay you more - anywhere - and it's a real deal - then let me know. I shall borrow the cash in London at 4.6% and loan it out for more. I shall then keep the difference (it's called arbitrage.)

    Me too - to quote Viz (!), a "tax on the poor and stupid".

    I remember it took me ages - months - when it came out, to grasp the concept that the state was encouraging citizens to gamble. I'm still flabbergasted by it in fact, the hypocrisy behind it is quite breathtaking.

    And I work in the gambling industry - but at least I don't have the gall to pretend it's a charity.

    Mmm, yes, but I've never had a tax rebate that big!
