    I suspect the winner is not sitting around browsing web forums right now.

    Not as I know too, I just hope the winner has a "soft spot" for Hucknall town fc.

    I'd even be happy to win just 50k or something in a lottery. But jesus that is a staggering number. Some lucky old woman probably won!

    Is it you?

    Yes, all £6.40 of it :lol:
    I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.

    According to the news it was won by a 3 man syndicate - Bill Gates, Roman Abramovich, and Richard Branson................. :wink:

    £9 grand of interest a day!
    It'll be someone who reckons that "It won't change my life", who'll buy that nice bungalow at the end of the street, that they've always wanted & then have 2 weeks in Skeggy, rather than one!
    Oh, but they will buy a nice new Kia and a caravan.
    Remember that you are an Englishman and thus have won first prize in the lottery of life.

    I'd buy a small country... maybe Greece but not sure. I'd have to be PM of course :wink:

    It was me and it won't change me one bit.

    I love my job and wouldn't dream of moving house or buying a new car, bike........



    Aye. Right :twisted:

    I just hope that the winner/winners do at least a little good with it.
    None of the above should be taken seriously, and certainly not personally.

    Sadly just 2 numbers for us, so £2.


    Maybe a good thing, as I think if I won £168 million, I would be dead within a week...

    If it was me (it wasn't as I didn't get a ticket) I'd buy Carlos Tevez and ship him back to Argentina just to shut the whingeing censored up.

    I don't even support Man City, but just for $hits & giggles it'd be worth it.

    Ah, but what bike would they get? that's the important question.
  • plowmarplowmar Posts: 1,032
    A nice Carrera perhaps? :wink::wink::wink:

    I'd get in there quick, there's an offer on at the moment: buy one Greece and get a free Italy!

    Well, it seems it wasn't me

    Shame, still it saves me from having to get my resignation letter tattoo'ed on my ar53, which is what I told my boss I'd do if I won, to graphically illustrate where they could put their job :shock:

    It's just a hill. Get over it.

    Had it have been me I would have signed the lot away and been in hiding by now. Really the wrong time for me to come into anything more than a fiver.

    if it had of been you, i'd have gladly took the limelight and 'looked after it' for you....

    my price...the interest until you wanted it back.

    I'm sure you would have had my best *interests* at heart.

    One lesson DD has llearnt is that she never lets anyone look after anything until she wants it back because by the time she does it's invariably gone westward bound.

    Many moons ago lived near Bridgwater and the castle was a cafe stop. Sitting out the back taking in the view with a monster scone and a cup of tea was very pleasant.

    Even took my kids there to see the teddy bear museum.

    I am sad to say that the I have given my close family enough time to phone me to tell me that they have won all that money. If they now phone and offer me a large amount of money I feel that I will have to refuse. I do have my pride :wink:

    FFS they say they won't move from their current home and aren't big spenders. Shove a £1m my way I'll see it off for you.

    Anyone else think they're mad for going public?

    Without a shadow of a doubt, they have taken a huge risk by being known.

    They will start too attract alot of unhealthy interest in themselves, Camelot do offer financial advice at there offices in Liverpool, but at the end of the day the final decisions lie with the individuals.

    Me personally, not a cat in hells chance! would not even tell the misses! but i would fill my house with all manner of manufacturers bikes so it would then become obvious!

    :lol:

    You buy another house to keep the bikes in.
