At least 2M to buy a nice house, set up everything for the future, some investments and then enjoy life until death. 😁

Wouldnt want all that money, it would probably be detrimental. If I did win big I would start education projects up in Africa and Nepal, sort my family and friends out. I wouldnt buy a fancy house, car or clothes as my brain doesnt strive or see these as needs or wants. One thing I would do is move the feck away from England, its too broken to fix this country now. So I reckon to fulfill my wishes would take a couple of million but I reckon I would only need about 200k for myself to relocate and not have to work again.

I've always said to myself I would have done alright in life financially if I can own my own fishing lake. Would bloody love it! Would take a mill for me to leave my day job, would have to keep busy though but good to never have a boss again, apart from the wife of course!

£10 enough for me, I would spend it on 10 x £1 Slovakian lagers and give them to @Sgt_bilk0 and see how he likes it 🤣

In all honesty though, I couldn't win enough to do anything. I refuse to play any of the lotterys since they all upped the numbers, added a raffle that I don't want to play, and basically made no prize other than the jackpot worth winning.

Agree with that. I don't want to win multi millions. The prize structure is totally jackpot stacked only

Im gonna rant now.

The National lottery when it came out was an actual 'event'. Millions would tune in to watch the draw on a Saturday. Jackpot was always somewhere between 6-8m, at £1 a play. Now imagine your average household had a spare £5 a week, they played the lottery with it.

Give it a couple of years, and scratchcards came out, 2 draws a week, thunderball, 'special 'games. Now, the average household still only has £5 a week to spend, but they got to spread it out over all those concepts, which means the ONE thing that made it worthwhile, IE the lottery draw, suddenly means bugger all as the jackpot gone down to 1-2m a week.

And then when they changed it into the UK equivalent of the Euro millions, well that was me done with it completely. If I want to play a raffle, I will go to the pub on a Sunday afternoon. Its the fact its FORCED on you, and you cant opt out of it that pees me off.

We have this conversation at work on the regular. It's about 3-5 million for me. I'd want to buy a nice house and look after my family, my wifes family and close friends. I'm very generous with my money, to a fault. So by the time i've done everything and looked after everyone it would leave me with a bit left in order to buy/build a nice house for my family.

However much Bandit has will do me!

Just to note, when (not if) I win big I won't be going anywhere, I'll share it with TGC, get a flash new car and carry on as normal but without debt, that will do me!

Jeez you guys know how to paint the town red, a lottery win and u want to buy your house and go fishing! I assume the highlight of TGC meet ups are discussing Capet samples.

After living 40 odd years in dreary Lanarkshire a lottery win would ensure ultra excess in Las Vegas, high class escorts, coked how my head until I choked in a pool of my own vomit.

Always have this conversation. I reckon 500k is about the minimum. 

Buy a couple of properties to rent for a few years, live off the rental income and the money left from the 500k and you could probably get a nice holiday a year in and retire now. 

Finished playing footie a few years back so am probably going to take golf up shortly so probably invest some time in that, or doing something that would help the locality. 

Anything 1m+ get a nice holiday home ontop of the above. 

Anything 5m or above add a place in Vegas or somewhere amazing. I looked at Monaco before, but the prices are absolutely insane.

Call me a greedy mofo or whatever, but for me that figure would be about €8m-€11m. 
 

Id buy two houses, one in London and one in Tenerife, make enough investments for a steady income for the rest of my life, go on a 2-3 year long world trip to see all the places id always wanted to go to and maybe even never return again. Who knows. 

 

The thing is for me with “only” an amount like €1m is that on my age (mid 20s) it would never ever be enough to not have to work again in my life. It would happily help with buying a house and make a small trip around the world or something, but thats about it. Especially after the SILLY gamblingtax of 30,1% over here - which would “only” leave a little under €700k. 
 

The reason i say “only” is because i dont wanna look greedy or anything - id even happily take a fudging million! - but it just wouldnt be enough to have me settled for the rest of my life at this point.

Talking about bad lotteries, for me that has to be the dutch “postcode lottery”. People over here play that just because they are afraid their neighbours will get rich and they have the fear of missing out, so they start playing too at a rate of €14/ticket. 
 

guess which lottery i wont play lol

£500,000

So I can pay my debt, have my car -  Audi RS3, get ducati 950 RVE Motorbike, invest, save, spend, and mainly study - A medical degree without having to worry about money or finance and live independently without annoying students.

I'd personally goto Malta to study which they have a University part of London for medicine (100k euro for the 5 years).

I have a mate lives in Las Vegas Blacko, he says it's dead and does not look like recovering, the casinos and hotels are allowed to open half a week, you can book in on a Thursday but you must be gone by Sunday.  Crime has gone through the roof and there is at least one shooting every day.  On the plus side he says the high class hookers that were $2000 a night can now be yours for $20, apparently they are all delivering pizzas now instead of escorting and bunging them an extra $20 when they deliver your pizza gets you a shot so you don't even need lottery wealth any more.
