What would you do if you won the lottery?

Well, i'm not asking this because I won it, but because i'm really currious about the fact what people would do if they would win it. I would buy a new car, and leave Belgium. I would send some money to the poor people in Africa too, and that's something that every winner would have to do!

If i won the lottery i would buy me a lovely house, something not too opulent, take a cruise and definitely complete my education. I would also help my needy relatives and friends.

Btw, you're right about what every winner should do - give something to the poor. I also hope every winner would do it .

If I won the lottery, I would pay off my debt, save some that will tide me over during my retirement (it should be something that's enough for a comfortable retirement), secure a place for the family, set up a business where the family can get involved and earn, do some charity (I want to be hands on, not just donate), and of course travel! When will I ever win?! Not at the moment because I'm not betting .

Wow that is something I think about all the time.I would buy a house, car, pay off any debt, put away money for my kids to go to college worry free. i would also buy a house and car for my mom so she can retire and let me take care of her for a change. Since she has taken care of me and my brothers without any help.

I would use half of the money for my family and myself. The rest of the money would go to foundations for children with cancer, children without a family, and abused women.

1st thing is to invest the money in an MLM company, that way it will always grow then give back to charity. My idea is to put people to school so that in the future they can help themsleves.. teach man how to fish and you'll help them for life.

Well, I would save the money in the bank because I would rather have money in my pocket than spend it something that I'm going to get tired of.

This is a question that has been in my mind for quite some time.I have tried relentlessly to win sometimes buying hundreds of tickets at a time on occasion hoping for the big payout which never came.Once a year or so i will buy a large amount of tickets like this as i feel that people who buy 1 a week are really kidding themselves with a 1 in 14 million chance.At least with 2-3 hundred tickets your odds are countless times better of actually hitting it big, just my opinion.As for what i would do if i won.I would buy hundreds of ounces of gold and silver , a mansion , a new car and invest the rest.And a nice vacation down south as well would be in order with such a large winning ticket.

first i would pay off bills of course and then fix up my house, sell it and move into a smaller (yes, i said smaller) house, put money aside for my daughters for university and then maybe travel a bit.
