My bro won a million dollars last year on a LUCKY 7's scratch off ticket. He opted to take the entire sum, after taxes of course, over a period of 20 years, i think it was. Which was like $32,495 a year, i believe. First one in our fam to hit it big. Hasnt bought anything crazy yet! Be we're still celebrating it

As a family we decided to drop the lottery and go for premium bonds instead. We've won more on those than we ever did on the lottery, and still have the original stake!

Premium bonds are the way to go (apparently a good place to stash cash when you are going thru' a divorce or something???)

You definately need at least somwhere in the region of 5k before your start getting wins. I've had 5 bonds since 1975 and won nothing until hitting somewhere about 5k.

guys premium bond on average really suck...

You'd be better off in most cases with a good investment plan.

Go take a look at money savers if you don't believe me...

Totally agree. As a family we are running an experiment at the moment to study the real returns.
