As it was a rollover lottery this weekend just gone i played it. (didnt win) but was thinking.. Winning 20m is quite a life changing thing.

What would you do ?? would you still work or maybe setup a business of your own ?


I would probably take a 2 year holiday, travel to places i have wanted to see and stay in some nice hotels.
Then buy a nice apartment and house plus house in another country. New Zealand (apartment in london, house on outskirts) then buy some cars, BMW M6, Zonda, and some classics..
Get lots of gadgets for house/app

then i think i would get a job with no Responsibilities doing something i love. So would be to do with cars or maybe just work in a cool shop 9-5 mon-fri

all in that would take up about 4m
would give some money to charity and to family/friends...

Firstly i'd give money to my mum and dad for a bigger house.. Give them about 500,000k..

Then i'd go buy myself a reasonable car, perhaps a new MR2 or a Honda S2000, give gaz enough to get his car sorted.

Go on holiday somewhere with rest of family for a couple of months, id most probably visit a number of different countries spend a couple of weeks in each one...

Buy myself a nice little house and furnish it and i think then i'd put the rest in a savings account or something, give me little sister some money for her future...

I think i'd spend about 1.5 million in first year

But i'd get to bored sitting around the house all day so i'd most prob get myself a little part time job, doing something that interests me

Very similar to what you've said really.

Travel for a few years, doing it properly with plenty of time to relax and see the sights, etc and staying in nice place.

Nice house, new apartment in Manchester. House in Puerto Banus. Plenty of gadgets for those places.

Loads of cars (super cars and classics), and other toys.

Then once Ive finished travelling I'd set-up a few businesses and employ managers to run them day to day and I'd just keep an eye over them all.

Buy all 7 houses in my close, stick a set of huge gates to the entrance of the close, name the close after me, move my closest mates into the houses and stick a suprise car into each of the garages for em, they pick da house and have no idea what car they gonna get. I would then work on cars too much and do 9-5 in HMV

i'd move out to australia, I'd take my parents with me buy them an house and give them enough money to see them through, i'd also consider buy other halfs parents an house so they could move over.
My house would have plenty of land, i'd then proced to pimp it out cribs style. a nice swimming pool, a big garage/ games room etc. A massive bedroom, a sex dungeon type thing in the cellar. That kind of stuff.

First off I wouldnt tell anyone. I would try and make it look like I had maybe come onto some inheritance as there are plenty gangs out there that will make your life a missery if you dont pay them "protection" money!

Wise words,

Although I think I would have to tell my parents, they might be a little concerned when I dropped a Million into their account

Love the way with 20m kat would sort out gaz's car

Very similar to cosmo but first thing i'd do is look for a cool as fuck pad in the hills in ibiza, where i would spend every summer. I would set-up a few businesses probably help a few mates with jobs. E.g. open a garage for my mechanic mate, you need to help subsidise them to live the lifestyle unless you wana be lonely spending all your money

I would try and keep it quiet but doubt it would for long

20m *thinks*

I'd give my rents about 5m to share between them, and my bro. That should see them have everything they ever wanted.

I'd go and live in 1 of these new flats they are building in my local town and buy a house in the country.

I'd also invest into some business abroad, probably nightclubs in Ibiza etc. and also buy alot of cars, clothes. Other things for shits and giggles, i.e quads, dirt bikes etc.

I'd buy a boat aswell.

I did win this weekend but only 61. Better than nothing!!

I think i'd give some to my family and friends. Have a massive pad built with cool as fuck gadgets plastered all round it! Probably build a massive entertainment centre somewhere> paintball, go-kart, quads, moto x, and other stuff. Then play in everyday. Or play golf on my own course which i'd build! Relax and have fun!

I'd be a fucking pro at golf, I'd be track daying every week and alot of cars would be passing through my garages

I'd have quads, loads of bikes, mates could just get on a block policy with me and borrow cars

I would so be travelling to see as many places i've fancied as I could but not all in one go, probably do a few summers in ibiza and then go 3 times a year on top of that to warmer climates in winter, oz etc.

invest alot into property here and abroad, definatly a place in ibiza/magaluf for everyone to spent all summer in
