    That's what i call it but i'm really tempted nowadays. I'm sick of being unable to live up to my debauched, bohemian ideals. I want to build a house under a hill and have a Folly built in the middle of nowhere.
    I *need* lots of money to satisfy my eccentric desires.

    Congrats tubby, you jammy bast! :(

    I won 16 quid on a scratch card once... and like the good commie I am I split it evenly with the 3 mates who were with me at the time :D

    The amount that gets siphoned off means that it's a terrible bet. Nobody enters the lottery hoping to win 100. Given that the odds / reward split is awful they'd be much better off dumping the prizes for 3 and 4 numbers and just having a few big prizes.

    Also - just have one draw a week, eh? Saw the lottery numbers on tv the other night and there must be half a dozen of the bloody things now.

    No bad vibes from here. Thorough congrats on the win, I've won about half that on a scratchcard before so I know the feeling (OMFGOMGOMGWTFBBQWOOOOOOOOO!).

    Spend wisely!

    Fairplay to you. Does that cancel out any potential Friday 13th bad luck? :oD

    Bad vibes? Pfff, I've actually had Cubby round to play at my house! Bet most of you losers can't claim that one.

    Tell you one thing though, quit now Cubby, that's your big win for life :)

    I might give it to charadee.
  • Deleted user 13 April 2007 17:15:33
    Or even better than charadee, I could invest in a knife and throwing stars and nun-chucks and a machine gun and fight crime.

    I know we've all stopped trying to woo him, but I'd like to point out that there's nobody Cubby has had more laddish banter with than me. Always jokin', we are.

    Nice one indeed.

    I thought 5 numbers was a 6 figure sum tho and 4 numbers equals Gs :/

    As I recall the odds of matching 6 balls in the lotto is around 1 in 14,000,000 and at those odds your more likely to be hit on the head by a meteorite. If they put it down to 5 balls the odds drop to around 1 in 4 million if I remember correctly. But that still means your more likely to be in a car crash, can someone explain to me why people play?

    Always thought cubby is a bit of a twit, and a lottery win changes nothing.

    How does that work? I mean, there have been hundreds of lottery winners, but, to the best of my knowledge, not a single reported case of death by meteorite.

    So I tried giving the money to Charadee, unfortunately we had differences of opinion so now I'm going to spend it on hookers and smack.
