    I imagine at 19 its a  lot hrder to say no...  especially with that much cash.  UK has a real crap interest rate along lines of %1  so the lot in bank would yeild £90k a year.  sure would beat working for it. but not the gratuitious lifestyle one xpects from winning a big jackpot. 90k a year would afford a house/ mortgage, a new car every few years, and  a holiday some where ea year. also   enough money to pursue hobbies  not a career.   still i wouldnt be happy with that return and woupd prob risk blowing osme on getting  better income. hell i would prob have emigrated to cyprus. or spain lol

      I think he won at too young an age and never really developed a work ethic (and I know most people do develop a work ethic long before 19). I do believe him that he is enjoying his new job.

      The United States of America won the lottery when we elected our new President Donald J. Trump. The Donald dazzles all!

        "Britain's most notorious jackpot winner blew his £9.7million fortune on drugs, booze and hookers and doesn't have a penny left."

        Too bad he had not read The vampire by Rudyard Kipling. Oh well.

        That money's gone fo ever

          Where did you get your information from regarding the UK's crap interest rate of 1%? I can assure you it's not no 1%,  depending on the saving account its over 4%, current account is over 3%, plus as he would have been offered private banking at the time due to the amount won, the interest would have been over 4%.  Get your facts straight before giving out false information.

            well then he surely is a loser then.  @ 3% he could be pulling £270k a year and living like a tosser to boot. i didnt get ny fact, i just posted an opinion. ok 3% is pretty common i would be very happy with 270k a year.

                  I Agree! But at the same time I think this is the kind of care free guy who will win another jackpot.

                  Yes he will. The devil always wins. Red Devil

                        When I caught a bit of the Lottery Changed my Life last time, I saw the story (again) of this guy who lost his money (bad business deal with a hotel) and had to go back to work in the oil fields. I picked up on his comment (missed it the first time or two) about how he was treated when he lost his money and could not get a job locally.  I kind of had more empathy after this for winners who blow their money. Not saying he was a bright bulb and I bet he went into the hotel business without doing his homework, but it was sad.

                        The United States of America won the lottery when we elected our new President Donald J. Trump. The Donald dazzles all!

                          How do you blow that much money?  He had to be giving people cash by the carload!  And hookers?  With dough you can't get a woman that isn't a "professional" to be nice to you?

                          Seems so simple: three digits, 168 to one odds when boxed... all you have to do is pick the right ones!

                            he's happy to be alive, which is most important.  that amount of drugs and alcohol will catch up to him later on.

                              i think once people know you won a lot of money, they think you are just a stupid person that got lucky, an its thei r duty to milk you for everything you're worth. If you go into the game  remembering " everyone is out to %$^# you , "  you might do ok.  no one is going to say  thats a bad idea t someone with a lot of money. especially if they get to come along for the ride. I have some sympathy for them. as i hope to see myself  in the same dilema one day.  not the im broke and sad dilema,  but the how mucgh do i want this freind to like me dilema.
