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

I always choose Quick Tip for Euromillions. Might as well let a machine generate random numbers rather than me wasting time over it. I once made the mistake of manually choosing a couple of lines, then realised after I'd paid for it that I'd unknowingly chosen almost identical numbers in each line.

I'm wondering, if I played Euromillions online with a UK address and won big, putting it into a UK bank, how would the Swiss Tax authorities ever find out if I chose not to publicise (unless someone grassed me up, of course)?

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

Yeah, but the EuroMillions lottery is not the same as the EuroJackpot Lottery, it is supposed to be available in March 2012...if the news sources on the site are corrrect..

They would never know.... Of course you need to be uk resident to buy a uk ticket so potentially could be desqualified.

Does not mean you cant use a UK based account from a Uk IP address, or buy the ticket in a shop. It's just what you tell them when you collect. Of course you become a UK resident the day you arrive & intend to stay.....under UK tax law.

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

Damn, UK winner again! How come us Brits seem to know more about picking tickets than the rest of Europe at the moment. Okay, split the win with someone in Belgium, but this is the 6th major prize win this year. That's a one a month average. Someone please tell me how it's done!

I need to start playing. Would be so nice to be rich. Too bad the odds are so crappy.

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

It's unfortunate that as a Swiss resident 35% tax will be deducted on all wins over 50 chf, makes it a bad deal as the odds are that much worse.

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

Been a while since I posted on this!

So the Euromillions rules have changed! There are now 12 stars instead of 11 to choose from and there is a second chance draw just for Swiss players.

Jackpot: CHF140 Million

Gotta be in it to win it!
