Title: Euro millions
Post by: 4D on Tuesday, October 12, 2021, 10:44:23
Haven't bought a ticket in years but might do today. How do you buy these now? Online, shop, either? Ta

I haven't done any lottery (poor mans tax) in about 20 years but considering it tonight, £184m would be a nice little nest egg.

I got 4 tickets on Friday as the jackpot was massive but managed to match 0 numbers. The bloody jackpot is even bigger now so probably going to have to get more tickets as you have to be 'in it to win it'.

Last time I bought a ticket it was £1 and tbh cant really afford to just throw money away now but may take a risk, as BO says you cant win if you dont buy a ticket.

If I won it though I wouldnt waste it I would spend it on booze, birds and fast cars probably :D (thank you george Best!).

You would have thought with 4 tickets you were bound to win it!

I have to go through some middleman to enter via some Spanish site - Lotto Smile. Bastards charge me €5 a ticket though.

Think I’ll pay off the club’s EFL loan tomorrow!

You don't have EuroMillions in Greece?

Strangely enough, no. Not every European country is a ‘member’. No idea why.

This from Dr Google

‘EuroMillions is played in nine countries, namely Ireland, Austria, Belgium, France, Luxembourg, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland (Los), Switzerland (Romande) , and the United Kingdom.’

And just to let you know, the odds of winning the jackpot is 1 in 140 million.

Bon chance!

Interesting!!

I was wondering after Brexit if we would be banished from being able to play euromillions but evidently not.

I weighed it up and thought that for the price of 1 losing ticket I could buy a decent pint of beer in Wetherspoons.

Wetherspoons won.

That's an oxymoron isn't it?

It's run by Camelot, so very English origins.  Probably limited countries depending on their gambling laws?
