I actually enter every draw ea month thru a subscription, to this and another one for million $ houses. its not gov ran but a charity  raffle. so gov rules apply.

you can view their webpage here https://www.rslartunion.com.au/ i dont spend any $200, but only $5 a draw. a total of $10 a month on  house raffles.

I  use my family fund for  buying  tickets. so would have to sell the place and  divide the money up. but im sure everyone would like to spend  holiday    in it with their family before we sold.  It's nice to see it  made international news

How do taxes play into this?  Can they afford this beautiful house?

    i would be concerned about insurance.  council rates are not as bad as in america. a lot of  services ran locally there are state ran here, police and  schools. so property taxes would  at a guess be about 1/4 of what you would expect in usa.  but yes would certainly tax their income  maintaining the life style

    i used the states land tax calculator, and put in $2 mill, said $24k   property tax

      Hey savage just wondering.  What do you think about our candidates for President?  What does your press say about it?

        im not sure my opinion would be welcome. but as fars i can tell you would be better off with neither of them. clinton is corrupt and trump is despicable. if i had any influence ot would be to get as many people to enroll to vote, and go 3rd party. and vote johnson. apathy is a vote for `1 of those 2 clowns.

        as to what our media is saying.  the media is almost totally clinton biased. I hope america  can  do a brexit  style event, and say good bye to the 2 corrupted parties running the show for too long

        just my 2c worth

        P.S. If i had to choose out of the 2, i would choose trump, because you know what you're getting with clinton. funnily if sanders was running,  i would have said take bernie. But the big lie is you have 2 choices, i think there is a dozen. can  the real america get together and agree on who else to choose in 1 month?

            yeah thats what id do vote for the devil i dont know.

            when i called their order line, the lady on the call said when I only ordered 1 ticket a month ; " what 1 ticket, you'll never win with that! "
            so i replied, " ok i guess i wont buy any ticket then "
            she soon changed her tune, and took my card details. Im a firm believer in the 1st chance you buy is your best increase in odds you'll ever get. from zero  to something.
