    With £113m I'd create a luxury property/yacht business in the hope to get to a stage where I'll be designing and constructing unique skyscrapers and thus become a billionaire. All of the charities I'll give to will be animal charities, with the anti seal hunting campaign as my no.1 priority.

    And blow about £1mil on pretty much anything.

    Just wait for a couple years down the line aswell, when the government spikes up interest rates to take the edge off all the money it's pumped into the economy. You basically won't need to touch your original winnings and if you do clever things like buy a house on a 5 year mortgage, you'll essentially get it for free via your interest earnings over that period.

    Actually in addition to the other things I said, I'd probably dabble in a little bet of venture capital. Set myself up as a Dragon so to speak, you can make a lot of investments with only £10m let alone £113m.

    What did you think 0.01% was?

    0.1 is 10%

    0.001% is 10th of a percent so 100k
    no, 1% is 1/100th of 100% (funnily enough), so 0.1% is 1/1000th, and 0.01% is 1/10000th

    so 1% of 113 million a year would be 1.13 million...

    Holy crap that's a lot of money.
    I think I'll buy a ticket tomorrow

    I think I'd spend it by:
    -Spread some of the money round my family, make sure they could all live happily for pretty much the rest of their lives.
    -Give the charity I help out with the rest of the money they need to earn.
    -Buy a Chalet in either France, Canada or Switzerland.
    -Buy myself a black Aston Martin Vanquish.
    -Take my family on a lovely holiday this summer. Each to a destination they wish to go to.

    Then the rest I'd just save for the future. I'd be able to give my children a good education, buy a lovely house, have no worries about starting the business I want to own.
    All whilst helping out my family and others if they need it.

    First of all, I wouldn't give any money to anyone.. the amount that would be taxed on it would mean they'd get just over half of what you're giving them. Instead, I'd say it was a family syndicate, so that myself, my brother, mum and dad all got an equal share, without it being taxed.

    Then I would invest in a nice house in London (Kensington or Chelsea maybe :P) and go shopping. I might rent a really nice place in my uni town whilst I finish my degree.

    Then I think I'd go travelling a bit, and then settle down and get a job that I love, and it wouldn't matter what it was because money would be no object really
    I believe lottery wins are tax free...

    £113 million. wow.

    £3 million to H4H

    Then I would give £20 mil to my mum, dad and granny for helping me through uni, and split £10 million umungst friends. That leaves £40 million for me. I would pay for my pilot licenses and buy a light aircraft. Buy a car, and a house and live the life of luxury.

    I'd pay for my university fees, pay for my brothers so that he doesn't have to worry about working the debt off that he's doing now... put the same amount in an account for my sister if she goes.

    Talk to my parents and ask them whether they want a new house or if there is anything they'd really like as a luxury (new car for my Mom), I'd give them money so they don't have any financial worries about food, bills or necessary things like that.

    Don't what I'd do with the rest, probably buy a holiday for me and my girlfriend, then a seperate one to Amsterdam with mates...

    Oh, also, I'd go to a very very very expensive restaurant, eat the best food around then go to a swanky bar and get absolutely wrecked off very very very expensive champagne and whiskey.

    113 million hmmm

    10 million: Amazing house with everything including swimming pool etc.
    5 million: A house in France, Portugal and Sweden
    3 million: UNICEF
    5 million: to my school and have the "Sia block"
    1 million: to Grandma, Granddad, Mormor, Morfar, My cousins + family (250k each), My other cousins + family (250k each), my best friend
    5 million: my sister
    5 million: mummy and daddy
    1 million: huge shopping trip and cars!

    then I'd spend 5 million going on a 2 year trip around the world.


    I have no idea how much money I've got left from that. Probably would put it in the bank and come up with something useful

    I'd buy myself a house in the country for 15-20m and an expensive apartment in London. I'd buy my parents and sister each a house for roughly 5m, and give each a decent amount of spending money, a couple of million - my sister has always said that it's necessary that she always needs to work in order to survive, or she would get bored and lose purpose. I would then buy a couple of cars (at least one Aston Martin) and put the rest in the bank, living off the interest.

    I'll be honest, I wouldn't make any major donations. It may sound mean, but at least I'm telling the truth.

    It's true, I'm the same. If I won the EuroMillions I'd have to invest in some companies and set up some charitable foundations simply to have something to do. The first six months of doing nothing and swanning around the world would be fine but after that I'd get bored of having nothing to occupy me.

    It was Marx that argued that humans enjoy work, they enjoy creating and producing things, it's just generally the situation in which they do it that they have issues with.

    It's very interesting, and I think it says a lot about the person. Obviously you are an active person who never wants to be fully complete in life and always wants another goal - surely a good thing, and I can see why a person would be like that. However, I am ashamedly the opposite, my goal in life is to get myself to a position where I never need to work or do be forced to do anything ever again, and then do exactly that, I assure you that it would never make me restless. I probably would still do things, play the guitar, write, cook, but all just as hobbies. I really could just spend all day sitting in my office (even if not used professionally) or garden, drive around, or watch reruns of Murder She Wrote and Quincy - even though I've never actually seen either of those - for the next 50-60 years. I am a very shallow person :woo:

    As proof, even now, in the last Christmas holidays, I left the house once, and only then because I had to go out on Christmas day. I am perfectly contempt being indoors, being in my bedroom or whatever, for huge periods of time - weeks or more, it really doesn't bother me. Last year my parents went to Australia and I had to stay at home to study, and I barely seen anyone for 3 weeks, I'll probably be doing to same thing this year - except this year they are going away during my Uni Easter holiday, so I actually won't see anyone for 3 weeks :dontknow:

    This is probably making me sound like a nutcase, I assure you I'm normal in every other respect :erm: I'm just able to withstand doing nothing for long periods ... and that's why I'm confident that as a millionaire I would never get bored of being rich and having nothing to do.
