    Because obviously none of you lot will get it.

    Nice big turnip in the country for me I think.

    What are the odds of winning it? You always hear stuff like "getting hit by lightning four times in a row" or something ridiculous of that nature....

    It's almost so much money that it could ruin you I think, as every relationship will be different.

    Think the odds are something like 80 million to one or so (76 million it looks like). Still someone's got to win it eh? Eh?

    I'd spend it on comics.

    And sex.

    You might not go public, but word would soon enough get round everyone you know. And some may try to take advantage of that

    If they can find my mansion hidden somewhere in my 50,000 acres of land then good luck to them.

    I'd try and keep it quiet, use it to do good works and that.

    I think I'd definitely buy AFC shares. Not many, just enough.

    Then a house down here, a house in Town and somewhere abroad - Greek island or somewhere.

    Sort the family out, then give shed loads to charities and live off the interest. And who can honestly say that you'd go back to work (unless you run your own business you're passionate about?)

    I think buying a lower league club and playing real life football manager might be a good laugh.

    This'll be mine if JuanKerr actually gets off his bony ginger arse and goes all the way next door to buy the cocking tickets. It's not like he's doing any work anyway...

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    So if you gave away 40m to charity and spent 15m on houses / cars / family how much of a salary can 40m get you from interest?

    Anyone that can be bothered to tell me gets 5k just for working it out.

    That Sky article reckoned 3m on 95m, so about 1.2m a year interest
