    Keep off the Newcastle squad.

    I don't want all the £95 million. That would be greedy.

    Half will do fine.


    I would love to invest about £10 - £20 million into developing a couple of games. Would give this serious consideration if I had the windfall.

    I'd obviously see my family safe, and I told a couple of my best mates I'd give them enough cash for deposits on houses (assuming 10%, so about £20k each?). My girlfriend and I would also set up some sort of animal sanctuary, so we'd need to buy a new place with lots of land.


    EDIT - spelling

    Iíve been of the opinion that Camelot should change the format of our own National Lottery; 1st prize 5 prizes of £2 million: 2nd prize 5 prizes of £500,000 and so on. It is time to do away with these stupid rollover lottery draws and if you buy a ticket the numbers on that ticket should be your lotto numbers; no more having to be committed 2 times per week or having an anxiety filled evening if you failed to get your regular lotto line on.

    There is a special criterion to be a lottery winnerÖ

    First of all you have to be a CUNT: Everybody repeat after me ďIím a CUNT.Ē

    Seriously anyone who is kind, caring, unselfish or nice should not enter the lottery as you are not destined to win. Remove all thoughts of good things that you would/could do if you won £95 million and tell yourself ďIím a cunt and Iím giving away fuck all.Ē

    I donít believe in God but I do believe that there is some kind of force or spirit that chooses the so called lucky ones; I feel as though our lives are already mapped out and the ones looking over us select the suitable candidates for lottery wins. To be honest Iím quiet content with what Iíve got; if winning £95 million meant my marriage breaking up and I had to spend the rest of my life sleeping around with Page 3 girls then you can keep it.

    i don't want to be a cunt either. I'd be happy with enough money so that i could get 70k worth of interest a year which i could use for mortgage/food/fun, and then when i died i could leave it all to my family.

    i just don't wanna work :)

    Arsenal is worth more than £95 million (around £600m according to wikipedia)

    I'd overthrow Mugabe.

    Or more likely just move to Bermuda.

    Figured I'd have a look at the national lottery site for fun. It's being utterly crushed right now. =)

    I've never really understood why people always buy the tickets on a rollover... like a couple of million isn't worth bothering with. ;)

    Yep, I've said the same, and I think Branson was going to introduce something like this. But the reason they didn't is that it dilutes the wow factor - say a top prize of £2m, if 3 people win it, that's "only" £650k each. Nice, but not life changing - you'd still have to work, well most of us anyway.

    The worst thing about it, is that you hardly get anything in comparison for 5 numbers. I remember someone on EG matching 5 numbers(I think), and only getting a couple of hundred pounds, or something pitiful like that.

    I like your style!

    I'd be slightly worried about what you'd do after you'd achieved that though. Republic of Whizzostan?

    Nope, im guessing the reason why they didnt was because of a few MP's getting a few backhanders from Camelot......

    Also, Branson wanted to give ALL the money to Charity, a complete non-profit lotto. I mean who WOULDNT want that...?

    the money has to be won this week so if no one gets all the numbers then the cash is spread out between the people who got the next best result

    I would finnish my degree and then start a new one in Medicine. Knowing that i would never have to work again i would concentrate on being a over qualified bum. I would also set up heaps of trust and sustain various charities on the interest alone (about £30,000 a month!). Which would mainly consist of animal and cancer charities.

    This is all of course after i buy a big fuck of house, an Aston Martin Vantage and the biggest nicest TV in the world. Would buy my mum and sister the same. Start up various "who wants a 100 grand" threads on EG as it is the only site i go to.

    Well..none of us are going to win anyway. Apart from me that is.

    I'd buy Eurogamer, then probably run it into the ground by slowly going mad on the forums as the money drives me insane.

    On a more serious note, I'd start a themepark - but if it wasn't enough money for that, I'd start a game developer and make the best game of all time, fully funded for 10 or so years of development and without any worries about if it'll make any money when it's released. It'd be a virtual city and the player would basically be god and do whatever he wanted and just watch the reaction (buildings getting rebuilt, people aging, girls getting undre.. better not give away too many ideas here just incase).

    Depends what sort of themepark you wanted. Universal Islands of Adventure in Florida cost about £1billion to build from scratch.

    If you just wanted some awesome coasters in a field then they'll be about £10-20million each so you could afford to put a few in your garden.

    No SPOILERS when the draw is made as I like to check the numbers with my little woman.

    What's all this talk of tax? Unless there's a rule I'm not aware of, the only tax on gifts is inheritance tax on the receiver. And that's only if you pop your clogs within 7 years. Though, if you've won £95 million, you might have drunk yourself to death in that time.

    So tonight's the night....what should I do with my £110 million?
    I'll probably start with a nice pair of shoes, got my eye on a pair of Jordans near Brixton tube station...then i'll probably buy my hometown basketball team the Adelaide 36ers. Should leave me with about £108 million in change

    any ideas?

    I'd buy the Darkfall subscriber list then hire hitmen to have them all shot.

    I'd offer my neighbour a million pounds to shoot her boyfriend. I reckon she'd totally do it.

    Invest in gold bars and a bunker to keep them in before the inevitable Mad Max-like future meltdown begins.

    I'd do the following:

    Cover half of each country in tin foil
    Make pebble dash, satellite dishes and pencils illegal
    Ensure that a large 10m cube of ice is on display in Covent Garden
    Buy some parks and cover with concrete, but leave a tree in the middle, a willow one.

    I'd spend about a million quid building a tower, then pour the other 109 million (in pound coins) into it.

    Then go for a swim.
