You would have to tell people you cared about that you won something, otherwise they wouldn't accept you buying them stuff (which I would of course do). But I would probably tell them I had won dramatically less than I actually had, like £1.2 million as opposed to £120 million...
My mum hates playing the lottery because she always worries that if she wins she won't know how much money she'll have to give to everyone and that it will cause lots of arguments!
I would only say i won like £100,000 so I could at least splash out without raising to many eyebrows.
I'd still go to uni but I'd live comfortably but not in luxury.
I'd make lots of investments (once the markets sort themselves out) such as shares, property that kinda stuff.
I'd find a offshore bank account with high interest and as little tax as possible.
I'd treat my friends and make sure they don't have any money worries as they are the best.
Finally I would donate large quantities to charity. I always said it would be like 10% but with such a big win of £120mil i think it would be more, I'd probably give the £20mil leaving me with a tidy £100mil
BAHAHAHAH i would probably spend 119 million on modifying myself biologically as to gain extremely strong bones and hyper resistance to stimuli and the rest i would put inside a bank after i get my mom a decent house and spending money maybe some spending money for my relatives and friends e.g. 10k each and my mum 400k ^_^.
I would also get a 30k car and illegaly streetmodify it for 100k ^_^ that would pretty much be it.
Supporting the op's view humans live to achieve desires and become happy once a human is happy there is no reason to live anymore as there are no desires or needs to work enjoy as the human is happy therefore happiness is lost and the human is prone to a suicidal mentality. ^_^
Its a LOT of money, first of all i wouldn't let anyone know i've won apart from immediate family, put most of it in a savings account, invest some, and buy a nice car and house. It wouldn't ruin my life, no amount of money would ever ruin my life because i'm a saver..so i ent gonna blow it all.
I'm a work-a-holic, so I'd still have a job. Probably invest quite a bit andmove away I guess but I wouldn't really tell anyone I'd won cos people might hunt me down and steal it all :O Hahaha
I'd buy an African country . . .
Heh, it could scarcely ruin it - that's not possible. I know that I could not handle the attention, but I'm sufficiently reticent and secretive to tell nobody, and I wouldn't tell anybody. Except maybe my father.
Money usually changes people. The song Movado - Money changer , talks about how money doesn't change him , and he usues the mone yfor a good cause. I personally think winning the money would change my life , seeing as I'm from a poor background. I wouldn't tell anyone though , as someone has already mentioned.
It would let me do the things I want at my own pace. For a start, I'd buy a flat or house and go through uni without any money worries and after that I'd go off doing whatever takes my fancy. Jay Kay style car and motorcycle collection is a must though.
I would keep it a secret and just tell my friends that i had a pay rise and it was a good one.
So no i wouldnt let it ruin my life.
I'd give my parents 2 million for every year I had lived with them. (Which is 18 years now, so they would get 36 million - yes it's a fair amount but the trouble i've put them through.)
I've likely then give a reasonable amount to other family members. All the same amount so no arguing. Maybe half a million. For them and their children.
After that and if you have 120 million the daily interest will be massive (that woman who won 35 million got £5000 interest per day), I would buy myself a car, and insure and tax it. I'd also pay off my parents mortgage. And send them to Hawaii (they have always wanted to go)
I'd also spend some on my friends, but I wouldn't broadcast the amount I have. And i'd set up different accounts with it all in so to keep it safe.
It wouldn't ruin my life. I'd still work the same job I do now (Lifeguard) for the amount I get paid, because I like doing it. If you quit your job you won't have anything to do apart from spend money.
Yes, being able to do anything I want would be hell.
I don't know the names of any of the people who've won tens of millions of pounds in previous lotteries - so I guess it isn't that hard to keep it a bit hush hush, at least from the public.
