    Yeah why not? But I like saying no cos Im a meanie haha! I think someone would click onto something if you bought a Lamborghini and a mansion lol.

    DPs friend won that $42 million that was won in Perth a couple of years ago. He is the nicest guy apparently though so I am glad it went to him. He paidoff his familiys mortgages and bought them cars and I think he is saving the rest. He was finishing uni at the time.

    I won $30 once from the Lotto and told everyone

    My cousin won $45,000 and told me, my mum and or course her husband. The did not tell the children who were teens at the time. They bought a much-needed new car and paid out their debts with the money and still nobody knew, many people assumed they'd either saved for the car or got a loan for the car, nobody suspected anything.

    If I won that amount of money I'd tell my mum and my cousin, probably my brothers, but that's it.

    If I won $10M or something, I wouldn't tell anyone, I'd simply buy a new house for myself, my uncle, my mum, my little brother, pay out all the loans my older brother and his wife have, and buy a car for myself and my mum. I'd put the rest into savings. The houses we buy are no more than $200,000 and the cars we buy are around the $15,000 to $20,000 mark new. Except I'd buy myself a Hilux at around $45,000

    Then I'd tell them I won lotto and that's what they got from it

    I would love to say no, but I know that I would. lol

    I know for a fact that once people found out they would be ringing me non stop and expecting me to give them money...

    I think I would move away change my number and only talk to the people who call me now and the rest can go jump!

    lol

    I'm quite sure I would. Just coz I can't shut up when good things happen to me or those around me
