yeah called euro-millions with german pronounciation "auro" instead of "yoro", just take the paper that they have by the side normally and fill it with your own numbers or you can ask for random numbers.

each line costs CHF3.- you can have a paper with 6 lines on it then you can choose how many weeks so could be expensive.

you can also play on http://www.swisslos.ch

Thanks. I will buy one ticket for 3chfs. If I win the 130M, I'll give you 1M. If I don't win you're getting negative rep for encouraging me to gamble. So...now we're both in it.

Negative impact of E-man red-repping you: nil.
Positive impact of 1 million chf: well, 1 million chf.

I'd say it's worth the risk.

It would be if it was the choice of one or another... it's just that one is highly likely and the other is highly unlikely and I've been working on my greenies for a bit and don't seem to be getting anywhere and another red blob will knock my confidence right down...

Rep Standings

191 - 67 - The_Love_Doctor

67 rep points. Hmm.... So if a bunch of us joined in, you could become very rich or very red.

How lucky do you feel...?

Any tips on how to phrase that (in German) so I don't look like a dumb foreigner? In UK we ask for a Lucky Dip.

dumb foreigner is a tautology.

I always try and speak to them in clear slow english... until the lady at the kiosk started knowing what I want

TLD: "1 euro millions line please"
KL (Kiosk Lady): "For three franks?"
TLD: "Yes Please :-)"
KL: "Drei Franke Bitte"
TLD: *hands over the money* "Merci Vielmal! Adeee!"

Works everytime

So you don't have to pick numbers? The machine automatically picks it for you?

Yup. If I ever enter, I always do it this way. Then there's never the risk of "my" numbers winning when I haven't bought a ticket (it happens 100% of the time - just check the Daily Star)

Didn't even know that page existed! Interesting to see who's got the most reps
Probably no need for a bunch to join in... just one person could easily wipe out my meagre 67 rep points lol

Re: Euro-Millions Change: Jackpots will get bigger!!!

so any chance 10 people can team up here and play together Euromillion?
It can reduce investment cost and at the end 13M/person isn't that bad!

Unfortunately lottery syndicates are illegal in Switzerland and have to be done illegally... and in the end you have to trust the syndicate manger enough to know he will distribute accordingly...

In the UK lottery winnings are tax free and a good porportion (because I don't know the exact percentage) is actually won by syndicates.
