Millionaire Aspirations

I've decided I'm going to become a millionaire, I have no idea how or when, but that's my new plan in life, I want to walk into a room and say "hey, I'm a millionaire" :)

I'm thinking about doing the lottery.

With the UK National Lottery there's basically a 14 million to 1 chance of winning the lottery with a random set of 6 numbers.

I could guarantee a win by doing all 14 million sets of numbers, but alas I don't have 14 million spare to try that option.

I wonder how much it would cost if you eliminated the least likely number sets?

You know draws like

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6
32, 34, 36, 38, 40, 42

Still even if you could discount those types of lottery draws as highly unlikely it's still going to cost millions to enter all the other possibilities.

So I guess if I really want to a millionaire anytime soon (like my life time) I can't rely on the lottery (big shock there :)).

You know it might be easier to act like I'm a millionaire already, then if I said "hey, I'm a millionaire" in a room of strangers, maybe I'll be treated like one for a while.
