Poll: If you won €10m, would you tell anyone?

Tonight’s Lotto jackpot is €10m. Would you tell anyone if you won?


When you’re sitting there on your morning commute or dealing with that old friend Sunday night fear,  it’s the go-to fantasy: winning a bucket-load of lovely, lovely cash in the Lotto.

Typically, our minds tend to go to what beautiful castle we’d buy first, or where exactly we would tell our boss to stick it before jetting off to Fiji for a month.

Then our daydreams turn to our (as yet unnurtured) philanthropic plans – maybe build a few schools, pay off our mam’s mortgage. Y’know, the usual.

But if it actually came down to it, what would you really do? Who would you tell – or, indeed, would you even tell anyone at all? Let’s put it to a poll and see where the majority of TheJournal.ie readers stand.

Dare to dream… If you won €10m, would you tell anyone?

Poll Results:

Only my parents/spouse (9241)
I wouldn't tell a soul (2828)
Yes, of course (1822)

Whatever your answer, let us know in the comments what your reasoning was. (Oh, and what you’d spend the €10m on. Go on, we bet you have a few ideas…)

Tonight’s Lotto jackpot is an enormous €10m. That could mean happy days – for the rest of your life. And if you win, it’s up to you who you tell – play in-store or on lottery.ie before 7.30pm tonight.
