So for £1 million I wouldn't be able to spend my days watching the sport of my choice, when I want. Hmmm nope, you can stick your million, I'm going to win that anyway Devil

Of course I would take the million, when I've done the lot going around the world doing wine, women and song I'd go back to watching sport and gambling again.

Do you get the money up-front or only on death?
If up-front, what happens if your forfeit?
Is anyone watching you to ensure no breach of the rules?
Do you have to return the £1m?  What if you've already spent it.

All sports? No way. That would limit my life too much.. dont want to limit my life for any amount. There is an amount I would stop watching sports, but it's way more than a million.

Betting I could stop for one million.
