    Anyone bought some extra tickets for the lottery tonight? We have, Chris had some small winning tickets from a while ago so he's cashed them in and used it for tonight.

    I don't know where I would even begin to spend 110 million though it's too much money for one person to win. I'd probably go on holiday and think about what to do, but I would give a lot to the Hospice that looked after Dad, as they are self funding relying on donations.

    Are you having a flutter tonight and what would you do if you were lucky enough to win the jackpot :D

    oh I think I'll have to give it a shot, not that it's worth it, I'm SO unlucky with lotteries and things but still.

    To be honest, I don't feel I'm missing out on much that I'd immediately want to buy. Perhaps a round the world trip to see all those wonderful places I've missed out on. A house near Disney and setup a business so I could live there and a HUGE wdisneysecrets party for everyone where we took over a whole park for an evening :D

    So if you win that kind of money do you get it all in one lump sum or does it get spread out over a number of years? Do you have to pay taxes on it?

    Here in the US the jackpot gets spread out over about 28 years. You can take lump sum but then they actually only give you between 50 and 60% and that is before they take another 30-40% out in taxes depending upon what state you live in.

    We get it in one lump sum John and we don't pay tax on winning it but we pay tax on savings.
