Getting distracted here folks ! Not interested in what you’d do with the money , more what you’d do with the ticket worth €190m !

Personally I think I might go a little mad as I’d be thinking of every possible thing that could go wrong with where I’d put the ticket for safe keeping .

I’d be checking it more often than a first born just home from hospital!

The website says sign the ticket and keep it in a safe place. Anyone who can't do that should not be let anywhere near €190 million .

I rent and commute so there's no one around here that would know my business now, never mind if I just moved out one day.

Besides, let's be honest here... With that sort of money you're not going to be thinking about Joe and Mary in number 29. You will be mixing with an entirely different set where a few million isn't anything special. You won't be getting shopping yourself, you'll have it delivered or have an assistant.

Anyone who reckons that sort of cash wouldn't completely change everything about their lives is either dreaming or it would be wasted on them.. The whole point of that sort of money is it's a life changing event.

Sure, I might smell, but the ticket will be safe.
First thing I need to do before this is buy a bra.

At least with winning the euromillions, i can afford a fancy one

That's the saddest thing I've read today. (I mean sad-sad, not insulting you).

I love Joe and Mary. I'm not trying to act the Saint but I'd have no interest in winning the lotto if it changed any long-term relationships. With friends and relations - or even just an ability to talk shïte down the village without wondering if people are manipulating you.

I hadn't actually thought about this before. What if everything changed for the worse, and you ended up alone, or with fake mates, doing coke by yourself at 4am.on a Monday night and generally turning into a right cnut.

Fcuk it. I'm not doing the lotto. I won't risk it.

I hate credit cards, I refuse to own one. But if I won the lottery, I think I'd probably keep a relatively small amount of cash on deposit for emergencies, and just rely credit.
NZ bonds have a positive interest rate. only a little over 1% but better than nothing.

Would you trust them with 190-odd million though?

German 10-year government bonds are now yielding minus 0.70 percent. Hardly an attractive alternative.

Clearly it is. A negative yield indicates that it's trading at a premium.

What would happen if you did try to transfer the whole amount into Doneraile credit union? Would the building explode leaving a smouldering gap of rubble on the street and the millions forever lost?

Cash Dividend paying companies.
3.5% average return say.
Go through your house and make a list of the products in it. Spend a day around town making note of companies. Invest in those.

You'd get 5.6 million after withholding tax on 190 million. Basically a lotto win every year for life.

Post offices? Government bonds? Credit unions? You'd be one of the richest people in the world. Shell companies ftw
