    The first thing I'd buy with my £125 million would be a packet of Flamin' Hot Monster Munch, which may be selfish, but hey, I earned that money. Kind of.

    i dont really believe people when they say that i will give x million to charity, if they had that much money in their hands they would never be able to overcome their selfishness to give away that much money.

    Pay off uni debts (approx. £20k), send me, my friends and whole family on a huge holiday (approx. £20k), buy property in the South, near Manchester and up near Durham (so £1m plus £500,000 plus £200,000) :p:
    Buy my mum a new house and car and give her the rest from £1 million
    Give my dad £1 million to do as he pleases
    Put £5 million in my bank
    Give the rest to charities.

    Edit: I want a private jet too.

    Well I know I would . Where I live needs flippin' charity right now, and I owe a lot to Cancer Research, etc. I'd also help my mother out in terms of her needs (she's disabled), so I'd set aside money for a bungalow for when she's older, and money for any adjustments she needs to have done to our house right now (stair lift, bath arrangements, etc.). I think it's also about £1000 for one of those motorised wheelchairs, so I'd pay for that.

    I'd also have a lot for myself, so the majority of it wouldn't really go to charity! There's university, debts, my parent's mortgage, travelling, this, that, the other...I wouldn't mind being a little bit selfish and having the majority of money for myself, but I may feel a bit guilty if I didn't give at least SOME of it to charity.

    No luck :mad: Did anyone win the full amount or was it all split up?

    What I would do is spend £25m on whatever i.e. house car bla bla then put £100m in a high interest bank (could probs get around 8% at fixed rate), this would then generate £8m a year to spend on whatever I want for the rest of my life!

    Probably, and itll probably change my opinion in a few years when a charity could of possibly changed my relatives life. But personally.. i think they get enough money, and i would be to selfish anyway.
    I got 1 lucky star and 1 number
