Euromillions

Post by CUSSIE01 »

Anyone else out there a tad sceptical about how there always happens to be a massive rollover in the mouth of Christmas every year ?? 🤔 £201 million on Friday.

I don’t do the Euromillions, but I doubt they’d be able to fiddle it in any way with, presumably, loads and loads of financial checks carried out on them.

Maybe it’s the sceptic in me but it seems that every Christmas there’s a big jackpot waiting to take money of the desperate & people who can least afford it. In theory it can’t happen but then neither could Lehman, Bernie Madoff, Ponzi, Barings with Financial oversight supposedly the toughest regulation of all. And don’t get me started on the Moon landing 🤣🤣

I just don’t see it happening, but now you’ve listed the other examples you’ve got me thinking about it now and I don’t even do the lottery.

It really is!! .....I remember I was in sixth form when the lottery started...I have never ever bought a ticket

If I'd have bought say 3 tickets a week since then I'd be about 4k down...not to mention the interest it would have earned ....I realize I might have won millions it is ridiculously unlikely!
