On a moral level yes. However, we have come to learn over the last 30 years that morality is very low on the agenda when it comes to obscene wealth. It is 'only natural' to extract as much money from any source, regardless of any wider effect that has on society. You're on your own and you have an obligation to yourself only, everybody else is a chump there to be exploited and used. Even if it's illegal, you can comfort yourself with the maxim that economics is devoid of morality.
Knock yourself out

You have 180 days to collect your winnings so postpone your win or let someone from your family who you trust collect your windfall if it doesn't effect their benefits.Enjoy

You have to ask yourself is it worth it? The naming and shaming if you get caught, friends and family knowing you are a benefit cheat, prosecution name in the local rag? All it takes is for one person to grass you up one little sniff and The department will be on to you. I know cos I am the department. Point is benefits are there for when you are in need it maybe now you can support yourself for a while get back on your feet. We all know some people will abuse the system Don't be one of them. Fess up!

I don't care. See, you're new money and I'm old money. Therefore, you are still a peasant in my eyes.
Eat some quiche, nouveau riche.
P.S. I'm not really old money and yes, you should tell the authorities. If you don't, they *will* find out and you will come off a lot worse.
Not only that, but seeing as you're currently on the receiving end of the socialist welfare state, you should probably put something back in, now that you can.

You got three numbers again Mr Lucky ? I don't think it will even effect your benefits, though its amazing you have enough left to gamble, so one could argue that you don't actually need the benefits !

If your lottery win is £10 don't bother. If your win is a million then you don't need benefits anymore, sign off. As far as I'm aware lottery wins aren't taxable.

'Even if it's illegal, you can comfort yourself with the maxim that economics is devoid of morality.' was what Insomniac said. Can I just point out that economics is the study of the allocation of resources. One can choose as an economist to adopt this viewpoint but equally as an economist adopt another viewpoint. Marx was an economist. It does not pre suppose a moral position.

So let me get this straight. Because a shopkeeper makes some money on every lottery ticket he sells I'm supposed to give him some of my winnings? Why doesn't the shopkeeper give me some of my stake back every week I don't win?
