From not having enough protection to leaving yourself open to a large tax bill, don't cost your family a fortune.
Les and Sam Scadding: £45 million
In 2010, a whopping £91 million EuroMillions jackpot was shared between two parties: a syndicate of seven call centre workers in Liverpool and cash-strapped couple Les and Sam Scadding (pictured).
According to reports, Les Scadding had actually gone overdrawn on the day he purchased his winning ticket, having been unemployed for many months. His bank balance is now back in black to the tune of £45.5 million. As for the call centre workers... well, they had to make do with a measly £6.5 million each.

And to the Winners.... CONGRATULATIONS & ENJOY!!!
I see that all the well-wishers and beggers are out in force then.
My advice to them, just enjoy it and have a carefree life, feel free to have as many kids as you want, at least you won't need the taxpayers to contribute to the cost of raising them.
And to the person that suggested capping the lottery jackpot and using the rest for the Police, NHS and transport, isn't that what we pay taxes for, not so we can bail out other countries who live beyond their means.
The very best of luck to both of you , im so glad its gone to a young couple , enjoy .
Well, all what I have to say that you must have deserved it? God knows best He is the only one who knows who and how to give. Some of us have good wife, family, health, wealth, friends, some have peace of mind and some have wonderful children. But there is no one I mean no one who has got it all. Every one of us is rich but in different way. Be thankful for what you already have got.
way to much money !!!! share the money evenly. i think £4 if you get 3 numbers is a joke .
