And over there they don't tax lottery winnings. Here the government (federal and or state) takes a cut when you buy the lottery and then again taxes you if you win anything more than $600. Then the year after you win if you dont consult an accountant then you might have to fork over some more money when you file for income taxes. You're not yet done. If you buy things with your double taxed winnings you end up paying sales taxes. Taxes taxes taxes, wtf!

When you win, Uncle Sam wins over and over again

    well don't play over here then. move over there. i wonder how much his win is in real money dollars. doesn't seem to be much more than a sustinence cash. hardly life changing, but decent nonetheless. wouldn't waste it on a house downpayment at his age, but would move out of his mother's house tomorrow after seeing it.  a car for his brother would chew up about 25% of it. he better rethink that.

      I think the point was being made about the tons of taxes no one is suggesting that he/she would not play in their opwn country sir. No matter how much my winnings are taxed it's money Ii have never had before and what's left can do a lot more than my salary is doing today - lol.

        This stupid kid is not the brightest bulb in the bunch is he?

        First he is a messy pig and just leaves his lottery tickets lying around where anyone could grab them or they could get thrown away, then he hands them over to his buddy and just walks away to go shopping. Only by the grace of God was his friend honest and did not pocket the ticket himself. 

        I suspect he won't have this money for very long. 

        Congratulations regardless I guess.

          sounds to me like you and mario man were both whining about paying taxes. you seem to be retracting your stand on it. i am suggesting that he move to england to avoid paying taxes since he is constantly bringing it up. everyone knows going in that they are going to be taxes to the max and still they play anyway. it is a moot point to worry about it and not worth posting about something you can't control.

            he does look and seem like he is dumber than a post. he and his mother could spend the whole hit on dental work from the looks of it.

                  Congratulations, Ryan Kitching, on your Scotland Lotto Lottery 53K pounds win.  Keep thinking and doing what you have, it's serving you well!

                  Ryan, instead of buying your own house, it looks like you have a satisfying relationship with your household members and a good sized bedroom with computer & desk space, so it would serve you and your family better if you simply remain at your parent's home and pay their property taxes each year.  This strategy is way less hassle, responsibility, and cost than living elsewhere!

                            It's less than $80,000 going by the current exchange rate, not bad, maybe life changing to an extent but he's not going to "live large" off it.
