    Did you guys read the article?

    If not...

    People thought they won. Celebrated.

    Checked their tickets, they didn't.

    The end. (Except for making the world news).

    Would be a fun party before finding out :)

    How soon do you lose it? Do you have the opportunity to spend any of it?
    It would change how I would answer.
    Edit sorry, I read the poll first.

    That's not what the poll asked.

    Reading the fine print is for suckers that don't know how to party hard !

    They only thought they'd one for 20 minutes. For me that's probably not enough time to do something irricoverably stupid.

    You don't lose it because you didn't really win it. So you cant spend anything. So id rather not think that i won it. It would be a very sad day indeed.

    Yes, read it. Hence why I asked if the money is in my bank account first before it's lost.
    Thinking you're winning is different than actually winning... I am not the type who do celebration until money hit my account :p

    I reckon I could give it a pretty good go ;)

    But, why would I ask the same question as was already asked last week but for the fine print?
