    Pay off the mortgage, keep ~£20m in a bank account for any future needs, and give the rest to charity.
    Just to the one charity? :lolwut:

    That would be one seriously lucky charity.

    Charity was probably too vague. Half would go to fund scientific research in medicine/resources, and the rest to improving standard of living in especially poor areas. I don't know if I'd just give £2b or so to an African charity, but I'd definitely do something in that area.

    I'd pay off all my family's mortgages, donate to a few charities, and buy an Aston Martin.

    You'll need that to sue Tesco for putting horse in it.

    Buy (holiday) homes in a few cities; London, NYC, LA as well as some beach-fronts.

    Lambo, McLaren F1, Ferrari.

    Obviously give some to family.

    Travel.

    Learn to play and compose music,

    Go into space.

    And generally just lounge about catching up on my reading list, eating nice food, ****ing expensive hookers, doing recreational drugs.

    Splendid ideas. Any passing billionaires reading this, please take note.

    Passing over the fact of whether you will actually win - you already have more than any lottery could hope to give you! :lol:

    Put enough money to live off the interest comfortably, buy a nice but modest house, get a new computer, car, gubbins for my new house, then give money to my family, closest friends, scientific research, charities.

    I'm not really overly business minded and I sure as hell don't see the point to amassing wealth after financial security and comforts have been dealt with so after the house, car and interest income, it's basically what half-way useful and beneficial things I can throw the rest of the money at so it isn't just sitting around achieving little.

    Keep 150-200 million, for myself family etc.

    Set up my own charity and use the rest on that. Probably to fund science/animal welfare/prison reform.

    None of those debt infested cess pits. A nice one, with beaches, good people and a solid economy.

    There isn't much for me to spend on, so I'd probably donate £3bn to charities and research. £1bn would remain for family and friends.

    My life as a whole won't be much different and I'll continue my education, though I suppose I'd get all the expensive clothes I never saw the point of. Possibly buy a nice place in inner London. Perhaps even a mansion. Hell, might as well go for a castle and call it Hogwarts. And have it populated with T-Rexes.
