if i won the euromillions lottery of say £100,000,000 ($190,000,000) what would i do....... well hey come on we can all dream right?? so, i would well first of all pay off any debts that me, my family or my friends have.... then i would hit the shops!! by gold and diamonds!! let people know that i am one rich man!! lol! then i would buy a huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge house in the country, and have an open door policy, where any of my mates can just walk in and watch my home cinema or shoot pool in my games room, or maybe work out in my brand new hightech gym...... then the cars........ i would have to get myself 3 new cars i think....something sporty!! something luxurious!! and some BIG!! AND YOU KNOW WHAT, STILL AFTER DOING ALL THAT I WOULD OF BARELY DENTED MY WINNINGS!! so then after all the splashing out, id get serious.... i would invest a nice stack of cash.... you know, just in case! then i would do something for the local community, by donating to local charities, where i can see the work actually happening on my own door step.... then i would maybe help further than my local area and, myself go and set up various schemes in africa, small schemes that you can actually see working, rather than giving aid to crooked fatcats in smart suits, who knows what they do with the money, im sure some falls into their back pockets.... WELL ANYWAY!! im guess there would be plenty other things i would do, BUT!! now its your turn....... so...... GO ON!!! DREAM A LITTLE!!!

Great question! I wouldn't spend a penny of that money. I would invest all of it in different income producing assets and then I would use part of that income for things I want to buy or for travels etc.

but with that kind of money you dont need to invest it all, you will be earning millions a year on the bank interest alone! i would only invest a small part, just to be safe, or for my kids....

what I would most love in this world is to be able to bye two houses next door to each other , my parents both have Alzheimer's and both are both still in their own home . I go down all the time to see they are OK but I would love for them to stay close enough to still be independent but so I could be just next door in case they Ned me , then when they need more care I could pay for the best care for them , That would be my dream with a lottery win , Oh and an ice cream factory for myself lol xxx

Winning the lottery is not something that a lot of us will be able to do anytime in the neat future, and that's probably a good thing. A decade after the average person win's the lottery, they're bankrupt. People start spending uncontrollably and think they have all the money in the world, when often times the amount of money they won is not much at all. When the average person wins the lottery, they buy a whole bunch of stuff they don't need, fancy cards, nice houses, and the like. If you were suddenly blessed with a million dollars, would you just blow it away like most lottery winners do, or would you be wise with it? Most of us would like to be wise with our money in the event that we were blessed greatly with a large sum of money, but if we were to get a bunch of money, what would you even do with it? Let's pretend that you are blessed with one million dollars, what should you do with it? First and foremost, if you are a Christian, you should give 10 percent of the million to the local church. God commands we Christians to give a tithe to the church, and we should do that. If this is to happen, you should call up the church's business manager and have a meeting with him or her. Be sure to let them know that you want this to be absolutely confidential, because people will treat you different if they know you have that much money. This will probably be a great blessing for a lot of churches as well, but keep it anonymous! Secondly, you'll want to pay off any debts that you have. You might have a home mortgage, a credit card, a car payment, just go ahead and get rid of those as soon as you can. They're not worth your time any more now that you actually have some money! Let's say that all of your debt combined including your house adds up to $200,000, so we've spent $300,000 so far. After you tithe and pay off your debt, let's save some money. If you have children fund their college education, and otherwise save money for retirement. You should probably save at least half of your million for this. If you save $500,000 in good mutual funds for 25 years, you'll have 8.5 million dollars to retire on. That's more than enough! We've got $200,000 left to work with. You can give $100,000 of this away to your favorite charity, because if you are blessed, you should be able to bless others. Be sure to pick out a good charity too, one that has very low overhead. Finally, it's okay to have fun with some of your money, but keep it reasonable. Feel free to spend $100,000 of it on anything you'd like, have fun with it!

If I won big first I would get my house in the country I've always dreamed of, lots of open space, a small creek or stream running through it. I would set up trust funds for my grandchildren for their education. I would give to my church so they can help others as they've helped me the last few years. I would invest so as not to have to worry in the future. I have no idea, I have fairly small dreams.

190 m =29 m australian dollar...If i win the lottery, i will make it to three portions, one to my parents, one to my brother nd one to myself. Let say i get 10 million for my portion, I will put half of it to the bank and get a fixed term interest, so no matter what happen , i will have regular inflow of money everymonth .haha... Then i will use some of them to open a coffee shop as it is my dream to own a shop. Finally, i may donate some of the money to the charity group,i hope i can help more people.......and contribute to the society...
