Don’t know about you, but I just bought 5 lines for Friday’s Euromillions jackpot. I suggest you do the same. During a recession, why would you not?
You know we don’t make a fuss about the EuroMillions lottery on 2oceansvibe unless it comes with a big jackpot. Well, this Friday is ANOTHER rollover with a jackpot of Ã‚Â£82,000,000. In Dollars you’re looking at $120,000,000.
And, in Rands, it’s a gentle R1,037,300,000. In other words – ONE BILLION RAND.
These are my entries – what do you think?
I’m quite happy with my numbers

Quite nice that they threw in that voucher promotion at the end. They’ve been doing that for a while. In fact I had a few stored which I used today, which ended up in me only paying for one line! Hating that!
Now, we’ve chatted about this before and it’s one thing not buying a ticket EVERY week, but if you’re not buying a few tickets for the big draws, then you’ve kind of missed the whole point of being able to live the holiday. Just like what is suggested in all books about success (including the likes of The Secret and variations thereof), if you’re not able to visualise the success you wish to achieve, then you probably won’t get there. Being able to dream is the basis of all of these formulas – it unlocks the potential. Dropping a few bucks on lottery tickets is as basic as that formula gets.
But that’s all up to you. Personally, I’ve taken that “plunge” and, if I win, I will be buying the 1957 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa (Phil Hill and Olivier Gendebien drove this car to victory at Le Mans in 1958, one of ten significant race victories this TR amassed in the 19 races it started between 1958 and 1961) at this year’s Leggende e Passione auction event at the Ferrari factory in Maranello in May.
The 1957 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa
Ralph Lauren owns two of these beauties, and I would very much like to join the club. They’re expecting it to shatter the $10.89 million record set last year by my dream car (mentioned to you before here) the 1961 Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder. That shouldn’t be a problem after I win this weekend’s lottery!
In fact, just like a pledged to drive my scooter in a leopard print thong; I pledge to you now that if I win the lottery, I will go to that auction and bring back that car. And I’ll document the whole thing!
Maybe I’m dreaming? So what – I wouldn’t be able to without a ticket.
And then the “potential” would never be realised.
Are you even listening to what I’m saying?
*** UPDATE – THE DARN LOTTERY JUST ROLLED OVER FOR A SIXTH TIME! THIS WEEK’S JACKPOT IS Ã‚Â£110,000,000.
That’s verging on R1.5 billion.
