Did you win $28 million last night?

By Holden Caulfield 7 November 2012 27

Apparently one of the four OzLotto winners last night was from Canberra. The total division one prize pool was almost $112 million, so that’s $28 million about to be injected into the ACT economy (or not).

Quoted in the SMH the local winner said:

“First of all we’ll pay off our mortgage then we’ll settle the kids’ mortgages. There are some other relatives we’d like to take care of too — they’ve been good to us.

“I’ll probably have a beer to celebrate.”

Whoever you are, congratulations. Spend it wisely.

Hey, you just made a good return on some high risk five-dollar investments, right? No one needs to know exactly what’s in your bank account 😉

The Porsche collection might give it away. 😛

That would be my weakness. I could pay off my tiny mortgage, but i’d want a better place. I’d mostly travel though so may be able to avoid buying too much. Although people think because I travel I’m loaded, reality is I drive a small car, don’t drink or smoke and didn’t buy a house I couldn’t afford to own etc etc. Then I never stay in anything remotely expensive. I’m eagerly awaiting staying in some $5pn guesthouses in Cambodia next month 🙂

If I won the lottery I would make sure that not even my significant other knew about it. I often hear that once the last dollar is spent, many realise that winning the lottery was the worst thing that ever happened to them

I’d be happy to take the risk.

The point isn’t that I wouldn’t take the lottery, the point is that I would be very careful who I told and how I spent it

Yeah, you’re right. The trick would be to keep a level head and to not drastically change things. Having said that I would resign from my job virtually straight away! I can see why not telling people is a good theory, but I would find it really hard. To be honest I don’t think I could live the lie of not telling anyone, which would bring its own problems.

I’d love to know what people actually do with 27 million.
Lets face it even if you bought decent houses thats 27 of them or more.
Spend 7 mill and earn 5% interest on the other 20 mill getting a million each year!

I’d spend some on fast cars, alcohol and loose women. The rest I’d just squander….
(apologies to George Best)

You’d be able to afford a liver transplant and then continue to drink like Georgie,what a player!

You’d have to be a complete muppet to blow $29 million.

Yes, and there are hardly any of those around.
