I have a confession to make, I recently started to bet on the lottery again. After years of not bothering with the UK National Lottery, due to the amount of numbers being increased making the chance of winning even more remote, and then the ever increasing price, I suddenly realised that the slogan was right all along, you do have to be ‘in it to win it.’ So I have started to have a little flutter each week, in the hope that ‘it could be me.’
I no longer bother with the UK lottery however, but instead stick to the Euro Millions, which seems to have bigger jackpots. I also no longer buy an actual ticket, instead taking part through Lottoland which allows you to bet on the results of official drawers. The jackpots and prizes for matching numbers are all the same, but the cost of the actual ticket is just £2, making it 50p cheaper than if it was purchased through a store. Lottoland gives you the opportunity to bet on the results of lotteries and draws all across the world, so you are not just restricted to the UK competitions.
So I’m now playing the Euro Millions lottery every week, and have been building up a virtual shopping list of the fashion items I would spend my money on if I was to land a big money win. With the Christmas collections already in stores and online, this is truly the best time to be developing any sort of wish list, but especially a ‘money is no object one.’ So I’ve been looking at those amazing ‘crisp packet bags from Anya Hindmarch, Jimmy Choo glittering heels, stunning pieces of jewellery that leave no change from £10,000 and personalised perfume from Burberry (is there anything more decadent than your own, personalised scent?).
If money was no object – what would you buy yourself this Autumn?
