Im not sure i would even WANT to win so much money.

If I did I envision a future of me sitting alone in my mansion, security cams and bullet proof windows, no friends nor family left, paranoid, bored and slightly insane.

No, i will just stick with placing a 25-rappen on the lemon to win a pint.
Or you could win it, and I'm sure I'll be able to help put you out of your misery by accepting your somewhat generous donation....

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

Silly question...do you have to be a Swiss national to be paid the winnings if you win?

For instance, the UK rules:
(B) Jurisdictions other than the UK or Isle of Man

Players and Online Direct Debit Players agree that playing the Games whilst located in any jurisdiction other than the UK or the Isle of Man is strictly prohibited and that no Prize shall be paid to any Player or Online Direct Debit Player in respect of any Games played whilst the Player or Online Direct Debit Player was located in any jurisdiction other than the UK or Isle of Man. The Company has the right to terminate a Player’s Account and any associated active online Direct Debit and refuse any and all current or future Plays by him or access by him to the Interactive System if the Company suspects or knows that he has played the Games whilst located in any jurisdiction other than the UK or Isle of Man. This clause shall not apply to Try Games.

No you just have to be a swiss resident, I have no way to verify this but you could probably check out the rules on www.swisslos.ch

The residency rules are a bit silly anyway to be honest and there is no way to confirm who bought what ticket as the tickets do not bear the buyers name unless you buy it online.

So if you do win which is highly unlikely your residency is gonna be a minor issue to get around :-)

Upon the receipt of that information, all the begging-letter writers heaved a collective sigh of disappointment.

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

Colin and Chris Weir named as the Eurmillions biggest ever winners!

"The husband and wife, from Largs, in Ayrshire, collected the bumper cheque which will see them enter the record books for Europe's largest ever lottery win."

Europe's largest ever lottery winners and that's not just cash we're talkin about only kidding I'm only jealous

They seem like a happy couple... good luck to both!

The 161 million quid smile!

You must be thinking of a different Falkirk from the one that I'm thinking of

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

Seriouslly, I wouldn't know what to do with all that cash. Once I'd done the right thing for my family, the wife's family etc. There'd still be a wee bit left over. I could buy Fribourg Gottéron, I suppose

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

This a very stupid question, but please bear with me, in my country we just buy preprinted lottery tickets and there's no need to "choose" any rows or columns or anything. I've been quite puzzled by the system here... The question is for any kind of lottery, really, not just euromillions.

So I just go to a kiosk, grab one of those little papers (I've read their instructions at the back but I'm still ) and just put whatever number I want on however many lines I want?

The more lines I fill, the more money I get if I win? (haa, winning )

Then at the end... hand it in to the kiosk lady and she'll charge me whatever the amount is depending on the lines?

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

Yes that is correct.

Euro Millions choose minimum of 5 boxes + 2 stars in 2 grids. Also other bits.

Swisslotto minimum choose 6 boxes in 2 grids. Can also choose Joker

You can also just say to the lady(or indeed man) that you want random numbers and the computer will select them for you. You can also do this on the bottom of the little slips by checking the little box at the bottom of each grid you want to play.(I think it says quick tip but I could be wrong) This is a good option if you don't think your language skills are up to explaining to the cashier

Good luck.

We won 44.70 chf in Tuesday's draw. Won't be retiring to a tropical island on that but it's better than nothing.
