Thumbs Up How much lottery money have you/your family won?

as you can see, please state how much lottery money you won in the past and include your family members too if they did.

i have only won 10 pounds in the past but my granddad has won top prize twice in hong kong. 3 million and 1 million pounds respectively but he spent it all on women and booze!

Re: How much lottery money have you/your family won?

Lots of little tenners through our office syndicate but puff-Mccall on a personal basis.

I'm working on the theory that i must win sometime and every ticket purchased takes me that little bit closer to a jackpot..... Lemme see now, odds of 14 sqillion to one:....take first derivative of square root of buggerall....add back grannies shoe size..ching, ching.....take away Fraser's waist line......and...there we are ....

My winning ticket will come up sometime in the year 4026!

****!

Re: How much lottery money have you/your family won?

I'm in a syndicate with my family and we got 5 numbers once. Got really excited as most weeks that means a few thousand pounds, so our cut was going to be about 600. But that week, 5 numbers got us 700 in total, so we ended up with just over 100

I'm not complaining though. We seem to have a pretty reasonable mix of numbers and get quite a few tenners and the occasional 4 numbers, so we don't do too badly

We did get all 6 numbers once....but on two lines so got 20 instead of 2 million

Still waiting for the big one.

No "other" option.
I've never played as i think they should give the running of it to Richard Branson (i'm obviously talking about the U.K. lottery) who said he wouldn't use it as a profit making scheme and plough all monies made from it into the "good causes" fund.

Makes me laugh when everyone goes rollover crazy - it's like on a normal week they're saying "oh its only four million - its not worth bothering"

Re: How much lottery money have you/your family won?

well the thought of hitting jackpot is so slim it really puts people off spending that quid on lucky dip. but the advert is right, if you dont play you dont win. If you win the jackpot, it WILL change your life forever

(not a spokesman for national lottery TBH)

yes, very lucky and crazy at the same time. he got a winning ticket the other week then won again the following week. the thing is, an old man like my granddad wouldnt have much idea on how to save, invest etc so there he was, spending like theres no tomorrow. in the end he spent it all in a year.

he had no properties, no cars, no expensive possessions, no money for family, just women and booze!

you can also say he knows how to enjoy himself

Re: How much lottery money have you/your family won?

Hey Mr tse_adam,

Could you do me a favour?

Consult grandpa or senior most person in your family and ask them to choose 6 numbers from a range of 1 to 49inc and PM them to me.

Thanks,
Kurzon

I used to have a set of numbers which I continually used. The most I got was ten squid I do believe. On one occasion I had hurt my ankle so I didn't bother to hop to the local shop to get my numbers in. That day four of my numbers came up Typical ... could have been worse if all six came up

Re: How much lottery money have you/your family won?

The first thunderball draw after my little girl was born I put her birth weight, birth date and birth time on a ticket and won 250, (which went in a savings for her)if she was born a week earlier would of been quarter of a million. Won 2,500 grand in the works syndicate so that was 125 for that. Other than that a few tenners.
