    It's near the end of tax year, so I would put some into an ISA before I lost the chance to use up this years allowance.
    Then I would get a sportscar, probably a Morgan plus 4.

    Cars, a house, clothes and luxuries. I will put the rest in the bank to accumulate interest so I can do that again in a few years.

    I'm so materialistic... :emo:

    In this order:

    - Buy a series of pastel-coloured suits, cut in the style popular in the fifties
    - Buy a Parisian atelier
    - Continue to do what I do now
    - Spend the foreseeable future absolutely ********d
    - Die with my £500 overdraft still in tact

    I'd give it to a few select charities.

    1) I'm confident in my abilities to afford my own house anyway
    2) The karma boost from donating a million to charity would severely outweigh whatever ipads or clothes I bought.

    I've always said that if I won the lottery, I'd donate 10% to charity. I'd distribute the rest among some family members and place most of my portion in savings. I'd use some of that to get on the property ladder and pay my uni fees, and spend a little on materialistic stuff like clothes.

    Go on an awesome exotic holiday. Buy a nice car, home cinema and an amazing computer. Give a fair bit to charity. Keep the rest in the bank, just as a precaution, and use the interest as extra income.
