    Or maybe not. I would buy my dad a Porsche 911, then invest in property, stock market, ventures. Oh, gotta buy a Penthouse.

    To be honest with you £1,000,000 doesn't get you very far nowadays.

    I'd probably buy myself a nice car, maybe buy a TV and then invest £500,000 in the stock market and give the change to charity, because it is a miracle to win the lottery, because it is fixed. So i may as well help someone else as something would have helped me.

    This isn't a lie, but my Dad is a member of a charity group and the group were raising money for Polio and Bill Gates offered to give 3 times the amount of money that the group collected in total. It was peanuts to Bill Gates, but at least it's better than him just keeping it all to himself. I'm sure he's involved with other charities as well.

    Isn't there a Bill Gates fund that puts kids through college in the states?

    Oh, and Ollie, after you've bought a house and a car and given money away I'm not sure you'd be able to live off the interest from what's left...!

    Exactly, as i said before £1,000,000 doesn't go very far nowadays. You can't even buy a nice flat in some places for that sort of money; let alone a house.

    The odds of getting the 6 numbers is something like 49 million in fact (correct me if i'm wrong i haven't got a calculator with me at the moment. I know it's 49!/6!43!)

    put enough away to pay for my younger cousins and sisters uni fees
    pay off any loans my parents have mortgage etc.

    save enough for travelling around the world and then the rest to wateraid and amnesty international.

    but in practice i prob wuold succumb to the temptation of a better PC, TV, DVDS etc but i would try to resist it, spend it all as quickly as possible.
