    It's silly. So many people who win big amounts of money go out and spend it all buying big houses, cars, boats etc. then when the money is gone they realise they can't afford to keep those items. LOL.

    Gawd tell me about it.

    Family members are struggling {of their own choice, prefer to buy ciggies and beer than pay the bills}, bankrupt twice already, keep switching phone/energy companies to avoid paying the overdue amounts for the ones they've already been with, and they won $15,000 once

    They spent $13,000 doing the loungeroom up with a brand new 60 inch tv, leather couches and new carpet, then spent the last $2000 on a new guitar for their 14 year old son.

    Then directly after all the money was gone, filed for bankruptcy and started the whinging again.

    With the money you wasted, you could have paid all your credit card and bill debts, and put a decent hole in your mortgage. But nope, just useless ****e.

    People are so dumb when they get money.

    They will probably be broke again before long. People with no money sense at all win big and just think it will never run out so go crazy spending. Silly, silly people.

    I won the lotto I spent $20.90 on a quick pick an got $84!!! A bit short of the $70m I was hoping for

    It was the first thing I've won ever and I couldn't be happier! The money will go towards bills.

    From what I saw on the news they won't be buying anything just yet. Apparently there's a 2 week waiting period before you get your money.

    Is there any kind of financial planning that goes along with winning lotto? We are looking at life insurance, and part of the pay-out includes some time with a financial planner which is a really sensible idea. It's scary to think that some people can squander so much money, and in many cases be worse off than before .

    There's a story on news.com.au at the moment about lotto winners from across the globe. Sounds like more bad stories than good when it comes to winning lottos. Bankruptcy, suicides, drug addiction.
