    I wouldn't "win" 10 million because i'm not daft enough to waste my money buying lottery tickets ...because let's face it, you've got a better chance of getting hit by lightening than winning the jackpot ...

    If I aquire 10 million it will be off my own back.....
    Get to work then.

    This is why men are smarter
    If you are indeed a guy then I think your very presence falsifies that hypothesis, judging by your name that is.

    Give about 9 million to my mum and that’ll help her pay for bills and anything she wants. A nice new house, send money to charity and family who are poor/sick. And get anything i’ve ever wanted. This is so unlikely though.

    Probably spend a million or two on expensive purchases, then leave the rest in an account and live off the interest.

    I would help my mum and dad pay of the mortgage, buy them some stuff and give some money to charity. I would also give it to my auntie and uncle.

    Just because one man isn't smart doesn't mean the rest aren't :P

    I'm pretty boring:

    Some amount (under £500,000) would go on close family, paying off any debts (including student loan), maybe splurging a bit (computer gear, new car, etc.)

    The rest would all go in the bank for the foreseeable future. At some point, I'd buy a house. I'd try to save and live off as much of the money as possible, although the ~£9M that would be left over 60 years is only 15K a year. So I'd probably look into taking some of it to invest and turn into more money. And I guess I'd at some point get bored and start a company, or fund some interesting projects or something.

    This, most definitely. And by extension, if I were able to acquire £10M I'd likely have a good hold on the concept of not wasting money. I'd be in no rush to spend it all and would most likely not stop at £10 million.

    Is it really worth that much?


    I'd put it into a Barclays bank and just sleep.

    People on here don't seem to get that £10 million isn't all that much. Assuming inflation runs to 2% per year, you can afford to spend £90k per year (in real terms - by 2073 you'll be spending £250k to maintain the same standard of living) for 60 years. That's comfortably well-off, but not uber-rich. The stuff most people are suggesting they'd do would probably bankrupt themselves in under 10 years. Many lottery winners end up no better off in the long-term because they spend just as quickly as they win.

    I'll stick with the "boring" option and invest most of it. Of course I could splash out a little (new laptop, new phone, a car when the time comes), but I have no use for a mansion or fancy car right now. Unless it's a 911 GT3 or something that'll rocket up in value.
