    which is exactly what Richard Branson advocated when he tried to win the licence, shame he didnt get it as people might not self destruct so easily with a £1m win over the ridiculous £15m-£20m+

    So stick £2.00 on the lottery and manage to get 3 numbers up out of 49 (or however many it is) and you "might" win £25.00. Or stick £2.00 on a single number on a roulette wheel (1 of 37) and if it comes up you win £70.00 plus your stake back....

    Re: the national lottery proposed increase

    The only reason me and HID still play the lotteyr is because stupidly we put the same numbers on from the very start, we know the numbers off by heart, so if we did stop and they did come up, it would be gutting, but that said in the 21years the lottery has been going we've won nowt more than a tenner.

    A mate was ina syndicate and they won 110k between 11, so he paid for me and him to go on a 3 week holiday in the US, the rest he gave to family.

    I occasionally play the euromillions but they are just lucky dip lines and I've had more success with them than anything.
    If you've been smoking something you shouldn't and you see something that walks like a duck, sounds like a duck and looks like a duck, then it's probably a dog or a bag of peas.

    Why does buying something you're into make you a knob? not sure of your logic behind that

    and clearly, the two horses didnt cost a million quid, he bought a house for starters, and that wasnt a 2 up 2 down

    It sounds like he fell in to the trap of thinking that winning a million pounds meant that he could live the millionaire lifestyle. A two up two down probably would have been a better buy in reality.
