Win. On all of that. Love that you'd help stimulate the economy with it!

I'd build a museum for just artwork done by kids. It'd have free workshops and art education classes, day camp, stuff like that in addition to the exhibits. Maybe it'd have a library as well--with just books by kids/teens, which would offer writing workshops and things like that.

So did everyone posting buy a ticket? We bought one just for balls. I still have the "we would never win" mentality even though its those who win that think the same thing. Wouldn't it be crazy if one of us did win?? Even posting rhetorically I couldn't actually imagine literally having that kind of money. I wouldn't be able to tell my dad right away. No joke he has a bad heart. I'd have to drive him to the emergency room and then tell him for fear he would actually have a heart attack. *shudders* he bought two tickets actually.

Psh. No.



As much as I'd like to win, having the extra few bucks is much more important than the lottery, which I will not win. :lol:

i'd invest some, save a huge chunk for dd's future, take care of family and friends' needs/debts, buy a house and a few secondary residences, pay off all my bills, travel, and give sizeable donations to a few charities and church.

I would make sure my parents and siblings were well off. And I would buy some land (just a little bit) and build a house, because I want everything perfect for owning a home lol. And I would buy better vehicles. I would save the majority of it. I would keep working, but I would get a different job that I would like better and only work part time or something!

Avoid telling anyone and carry on with life as normal.

Buy a house in the desert and buy my mom a new car. Hide the rest somewhere and use it when I need it. Have another kid.

Idk if you can buy them today. My dad said his quick picks were $2. I guess if you pop into a gas station today you could always ask? I don't play the numbers. I can't even win on scratch off tickets. I'm not lucky. Lol

I've noticed that a lot of you arent intending to do much with your money. Many of you will probably only spend a million or 2 of the $300+. Buying a house, paying credit cards and upgrading your car wont make much of a dent.
What will you do with all the unspent money (if this describes your intent)??

2m for each "family" in my family. Then invest as well as buy an affordable house/car then split it between saving collage funs and spending.
