    Back when I used to sell it while at uni, a lassie won 100 grand on a scratchy. Spent the lot in 6 weeks... on scratches. Said she didnt care she'd go back on the dole. They never let her. Got a job at amazon night shift. Shes been good with money ever since. Shame it took that to realise moneys no free.

    As for me I won £100 on a bingo scratch card. Never bought one since. I'm up on the lottery. Get it up yeeee

    Used to do it religiously when it started. Biggest win I got was about £700 that was for 5 numbers. Stopped doing it years ago.

    I do the postcode lottery and as a coincidence I won £10 this week.

    Well done !

    Don’t do lottery regularly now but won a lot of tenners for 3 numbers over the years...

    Probably evens or slightly up in cash terms...

    Won £200 a few years back ...

    (It didn’t change me!)

    Took half out and left the rest to fund tickets for the following year.

    Don’t play often now but had zero wins since they changed the number of balls - and of course the odds - makes me a bit annoyed that draws like the euro millions just rollover until somebody wins an obscene amount..

    They should just share immediately on that draw. Plus ... if you don’t play the next draw when it’s a rollover then you don’t get to be in the draw even though your money is!!!

    If the money rolls over then so should your ticket...

    Wouldn’t mind winning that 10k a month prize they have at the moment !!!

    In previous years I always told myself when I win the lottery I'd definitely give Celtic some of it. The older i got the wiser I got after seeing what that * PL does with our money, if I win it tomorrow, he'll be getting sweet FA! Even if one wins the 190million and threw aul Pete 50 of it, the * will still filter it through the books and end up with a loan on last day of the season from the back end of nowhere :rofl:

    Seriously though, when I do win the lottery which I strongly believe one day I will, I'll have a nice life but will definitely make even more from it rather than being one of them * idiots that blow it in a year or two then end up depressed to *!

    Had many an email saying we have news about your ticket to find I've won 2/3 quid :31: hadn't played it for over a year but I've started playing the set for life now, 10k a mo th for 30 years would be delightful
