A mere Bagatelle Chris when you have E 161 MILLION , think of the Interest that will make when whoever has won it will go to Bali for a month to
come to terms with the win.

Record £161m Lottery Jackpot Is Claimed






Adam Arnold, Sky News Online
The UK EuroMillions ticket-holder who won Europe's biggest-ever jackpot of
£161m has claimed their prize, Camelot has confirmed.

The individual is currently deciding whether to go public or remain
anonymous.
Since Tuesday, Camelot has been urging people to check their tickets because
the winner was losing about £9,000 a day in interest.
The lottery operator had said if the winner did not come forward within 180
days of the draw being made then the money and interest would go towards good
causes.
Camelot said on a Coutts bank interest rate of 2.05% gross, the lucky person
could be making an extra £9,079 a day.
However, other reports have said that figure could go up to £14,400 depending
on where the person deposits the money.
It has not been disclosed where the ticket was bought or whether it was
purchased online.



£161m, in stacked £50 notes, would be the height of nearly
four Big Bens


If the money were stacked in bundles of £50 notes, it would be almost 365m
tall, almost four times the height of the Big Ben tower.
A Camelot spokesman told Sky News Online it was not unusual for a ticket to
not be claimed within a few days of the draw being made because some people take
a while to check their numbers.
And he said that occasionally people make bogus claims, adding: "We have
rigorous security procedures in place."
He went on: "The champagne is on ice for the winner."
The jackpot numbers were 17, 19, 38, 42 and 45, and the Lucky
Stars were 9 and 10.

According to The Sunday Times Rich List 2011, a single winner would
immediately become the 430th richest person in the country, ahead of Beatles
legend Ringo Starr (£150m), but still just short of the Beckhams' league
(£165m).



I've had so many begging letters. It was
upsetting.
Lottery winner from 2010, George Sturt




The exact amount to be claimed by the winner is £161,653,000 while two other
UK-based lottery players scooped £1.7m after matching five numbers and one Lucky
Star.
Meanwhile, a man who won £26.1m in a family syndicate in January 2010, has
urged the Euromillions winner to stay anonymous.
George Sturt, 77, who split the money four ways with his three children, said
he had had hundreds of begging letters since he went public and regrets doing so
now.
He told Sky News Online: "I've had so many begging letters. It was upsetting.
One man even sent his bank account number for me to put money into.
"Camelot were wonderful and they got rid of a couple of bad ones", adding the
firm had got in touch with those people and he has not heard from them
since.

Post  kitti on Thu 14 Jul - 18:57

I've thought about what I would do with some off the money......I would give some to a donkey sanctuary and some to Ariel, the paralysed lion.


Then I would buy a big house in the country, somewhere very quite with land to buy my own donkeys ...just -a few to keep each other company.


Then I would buy 2 dogs.... One Doberman and one very small dog (-a Doberman wouldn't fit in my lap)...2 Bengal cats....2 fennec foxes.....LARRY would have his own bedroom with en suite (he prob wouldn't sleep in their without me but if I put a tv in their during the day he would, he likes children's tv, a flat screen as nothing is too good for my LARRY).


I would have a bird room for Rodney Percy and Peter (it could be a play room come bedroom as sometimes they get over exited and noisy).


I would get a Huge cage for Roger to sleep in at bedtime .

I may even build a bird sanctuary where abused and unwanted birds could come to spend the rest off their days in comfort.


That's my beautiful dream....

What about Humans kitti, wouldn"t you do anything for them?

After seeing Family and friends alright , I would go to Bali for a month and decide what to do to help deserving causes. I would build a Training Centre
for youngsters to learn a Trade and staff it with the most talented Teachers who have been made redundant . Naturally I would be Hands on and give an Annual Prize for the best Student.

I would help disadvantaged Children , probably working with the NSPCC, open an Art & Design Centre where anyone can bring their work to be displayed and hopefully sold . Invest some of the Money to earn the best eate of Interest, dabble in Stocks and Shares, again to make money and give me an
interest and enjoy myself .

Kitty

That's a good dream in my book - similar to what I would do regarding buying land and looking after injured animals and birds would be my dream. I am always rescuing birds and unwanted animals it would be so nice to have the land to accommodate them.

Off course I would give my two sons alot off money but as far as giving the NSPCC money....sorry no. No way am I going to put money in the shareholders pockets pay the directors their bonus...no..I would make sure ALL off my donation that went to the charity off my choice actually went on what I believe it was going to do for this charity I.e. The animals were well looked after and fed well.....no way would I go through a third party as at the end off the day, I want my animals to get the full amount.


Why have I chose animals over humans.....just look at the world and look at who is doing all the damage.


If ever I won any money, I would surround myself with animals...not humans

Well, as someone who is surrounded by rescue animals, I agree with kitti. After I'd given to my kids and parents, a nice big farmhouse with lots of land is what I'd buy. A nice big field for the dogs to run around in and a nice heated cattery with a massive run for the cats (for those that liked the comfort of indoors). And somewhere for rescue teacup pigs, I love pigs and have a feeling alot of these 'little' pigs will be needing new homes before long, when their owners realise their NOT tiny little things for long! Another passing faze!

I think they are brave to go public but I guess it would be difficult to keep that kind of money secret.

On sky News this morning it was reported that the couple have already been forced to move. It was expected really, bad decision to make themselves
known but how do you deal with such a life changing event?

Morning Hammy,

Do you remember one of the first big Lottery winners Viv , who proclaimed, "we are going to spend, spend, spend" what a tragic life that money brought

It"s alright to talk about what we would do if we had won it but I certainly wouldn"t go public as many sky comments also advies. I think they should have gone away for a month or so to come down to Earth and think things through.

that would have been the best thing to do. i think they will probably have to leave their nice wee house. they may not change much but some of those around them will.

One of the comments on sky said they will be inundated with begging letters, Investement Advisors, their lives will literally be Hell. Let"s face it , we would all like to have more money to do as we like, but at £9,000 odd interest a DAY, you"d be hard pressed to get your head around this fortune.

I know what I would do with some of it, but big projects like opening an Apprenticeship College, take a lot of thought, the right people to organise it etc.
but I would be hands on.

Euromillions jackpot winners leave home to escape begging letters
Britain's biggest lottery jackpot winners, Colin Weir and his wife Christine, have been forced to leave home after they were inundated with people asking them for money.

Colin and Christine Weir decided to publicly reveal their identity so they would not be forced to lie to friends and family. Photo: PA
By Richard Alleyne1:54PM BST 17 Jul 2011
Mr Weir, 64, and his wife, 55, have travelled to Spain with their children after begging letters flooded in to their home.
The post office have confirmed that hundreds more are piling up at the sorting office.
The couple realised they had won the Euromillions jackpot, which had rolled over 14 times, late on Tuesday and they stayed up all night waiting to talk to Lottery officials in the morning.
They decided to publicly reveal their identity so they would not be forced to lie to friends and family.
But as soon as they revealed their identities, the demands for money flooded in.

"The begging letters have already started coming," their postman said.
"I delivered a pile of them today. But there are many more piled up at the sorting office.
"They are just addressed to "The Weirs" and the manager is deciding whether to deliver them."
The couple, who have two children aged 24 and 22, plan on having "so much fun" with the money — Mr Weir hopes to buy a private box at Barcelona's football stadium and Mrs Weir hopes to go travelling and fly "at least business class".
Neighbours described their only hobby as "takeaways," as they frequent the local fish and chip shop three times a week.
Neighbours in the town of Largs say the Weirs are "nice people" but don't understand why they went public.
"It's hard to imagine they'll be able to stay here now everyone knows they've got £161m in the bank. They will be pestered to death," neighbour David Simpson told the Mail on Sunday.
"No one would have known if they'd kept it quiet. Why let the cat out of the bag?"
