Does anyone still play this?

Anyone know of anyone that won more then £10?

I rememebr at Uni my flatmate said he only buys it once a year but buys like 50 tickets in one go and so him and another guy did that and won zero, but my other friend boght a single ticket and won over £50, which made then go a bit red.

I just bought my tickets online and have to say it's good cos I spend less now on tickets and they actually get checked instantly where as before I'd often not check them for weeks!

    My auntie got 5 numbers and a bonus ball so got about £75k.

    I have had 4 numbers before but only got a crap amount like £30 because there were loads of winners that week.

    And yes, I still play.

    My boyfriend and I play every Wednesday Saturday, one line each, same numbers each time. I won a tenner the second time I played it, and I've won £65 with four numbers. My boyfriend's won a tenner quite a few times.

    Oh yeah, my mate's boyfriend won £2 million on it once but he blew it all. Now all he's got to show for it is some bling bling gold jewellery. He used to live in Chipping Sodbury. I think it was in the local papers.

    Blew it on what sorts of things?

    Wow even just stuck in the bank he could have gotten about £100,000 a year in bank interest (@ 5%) and lived of that for the rest of his life!!

    Does he at least have a house out of it or something like that?

    The big difference between our lottery and the US ones is you get all your money at once tax free in the USA most pay out ovr like 10 years or longer I think and some even tax you on it!!
