Only £13m? It’s not enough to get me to buy a ticket

Have your say

I never seem to have much luck on the lottery – probably because I rarely do it.

And here lies the problem. When did it become no good to win a few million?

I heard the National Lottery was a quadruple rollover the other day, with prize money of £13m.

But you know what? I didn’t bother buying a ticket, feeling a sense of disappointment that the prize wasn’t bigger.

Just £13m? That used to be the standard payout for just one week!

As soon as the Euro Millions rolls over a few times – and we’re talking £100m here – I’m straight into the shop and am busy drawing up plans of how to spend it all.

But £13m? No, it’s just not for me. Not life-changing at all.
