    About 10 years ago I worked with a very close friend 50 - 60 hours a week for about 16 years.
    We always said if one of us won the lottery we would make sure the other
    would not have to work again.

    I have just been told he won £5 Million on UK Lottery, do you think he will remember what we both said.
    We have not seen each other in 3 years since I moved to a different country to find a better job.

    In your mind.
    Would you remember him? I wonder how many people he told that just in case someone won;)
    5 mil is not that much for him to want to remember saying that though, what's the tax % there?

    My sister told me he was in the local paper, picture and all.
    Surprised because we always said we would not go public.

    people talk about how generous they would be if they were rich..
    then it happens and greed kicks in

    good luck, hopefully it works out

    You don't pay tax on the winnings, only tax on the future interest after you bank it.

    5million really isn't that much money.. So even if he was to give you 500k I could make that disappear in 1 day.

    But I guess if he was to give you anything it would be better than nothing.

    Just think your self if you would have won the lottery would you have shared it with your old friend? and you will get the answer.. be very true while assuming.

    Congratulations Mr. OK (OK Won £5 Million UK Lottery)! :)

    Get on with what destiny has offered him! People say a lot of things to one another but they are just in spur of moment. I think you both haven't talked much for last 3 years, so that's it! So many young couples promise each other, and in presence of God and His faithful servant that they both will never ever part in life... within no time, they do (part apart:)), and promise someone other the same thing in front of God and His faithful servant!! :D

    So wish him well and carry on! Life may even surprise you as it did to him sometime later! ;)

    I think it all depends how close of friends you guys were to be honest.

    A lot of the stuff that comes up in casual conversation is never meant to be serious. You guys probably both thought you would never win the lottery in the first place. So saying "if one of us wins, neither of us will ever have to work again" was probably just something that came out and neither one of you thought it would ever happen anyway so it was OK to make a bold claim like that.

    What I would do if I were you and you really wanna pursue this further, and assuming you guys were really that close of friends and not just coworkers, is send him an email or call him and just say something like "congratulations, I heard you finally won the lottery huh?" and try to strike up a general conversation. But don't come out and ask him for anything. If he remembers what you guys spoke about in the past and wants to honor it, then he can do so. If not, then he probably doesn't want to give you anything.

    Just my opinion...
