+254 Let’s say you win 10 million after taxes.. would you retire?

I’m 32, I think I would. Even at 3% that’s 300k per year. I’d move to a cheap city/state and never work a day in my life again.

+63 After all initial expenses, you’re left with $400m in your account. You decide to allocate $50m for the wildest, coolest, most fun IIWTL purchases you can think of, however impractical they would be.

Please don’t tell me about how you are going to invest this money because you are so smart, or that this is how lottery winners go bankrupt… I wanna see monster trucks, jetpacks, racing cars, and waterfall swimming pools like that one guy.

+30 A couple hit the keno twice on the same draw (€3,6M)

Hi folks ! I just wanted to share a crazy story of two lucky winners of two jackpot of €1,8M ! They are used to playing their favorite numbers and did not consult each other this time, the husband just changed number 9 for 29 and both were drawn. Their plan is to stop working and do voluntee...

+41 What would you do for your kids if you won?

Numbers matter, so let’s say you hit the Powerball when it’s at $300 million. That’s (roughly) $200 mil after taxes. Would you go the route many famous wealthy ppl have, and make your children find their own way, or would you give them almost whatever they wanted. In this scenario, current a...

+16 Do you go to the crappiest, most rundown gas station/convenience store you can find to buy tickets?

I have a friend of mine who suggests to get tickets at the most run-down, ghetto convenience store. Something in Southwest Houston that looks kind of like this I should note that this area in Southwest Houston has since 2022 partly due to rising COL/rent, etc. gotten to be more filled with homele...

+33 Anybody would go public on purpose if they won?

I know there are major downsides, but it's a sure way to become a celebrity, and some people want to be famous.

+29 Winning message from machines?

If I won some large amount of money and only scan my tickets, rarely checking the numbers. I've always been curious what would happen when scanning a big winner. I've had at most $20 which can be redeemed in store.

+31 Just a thought

I’ve often daydreamed and planned in my head what I’d do if I won a significant amount from the lottery. One thought was to take the immediate family on a little vacation and rent a private jet for us to fly on. Anyone ever done this or know cost wise what chartering a private jet would be? It’s ...

+16 So close …

I hit 3/6 on French lotto €11M jackpot free of taxes last night, it’s hard to see that I was so close to take that one at home.

+69 Do you wait until it hits a certain amount to play?

Honestly I would be happy to win any sum of money that would let me retire comfortably but I would be kind of pissed if I won the $20 million on the Powerball or Mega Millions. Yes I understand I would still be a rich millionaire and if I was responsible I would never have to work again but sinc...

+14 Jackpocket charging for subscription tickets ahead of time

So JackPocket is convenient and for this we pay 10% each time we load cash onto the app. They previously had Smart Order in NY which they've taken away and now have brought in the idea of a subscription where you can order/purchase many games ahead of time, like 30-50. But while previously Sm...

+42 Do you check the lotto ticket right after the drawing?

I typically only check right away if someone wins in my state, but if nobody hits the jackpot, or if it's another state, I might wait for weeks to check if I got any secondary prizes.

+38 Lucky for life

I'd take the $1000 a day. That's $30k a month. I'd add $10k into a high yield savings account every month. And I'd add $2000 + every month to my portfolio of stocks and mutual funds. I'd get another house to rent out, pay both mortgages (x2 or x3 to pay them off sooner). If ...

+68 To the states that require your name to be released if you win the powerball/mega millions, can you argue that blood is on their hands if something bad happens to you because you became a target to the general public?

Curious on how lottery lawmakers don’t take into consideration that people are crazy out there in the real world and will harm you or your family if you win such a large amount of money and your identity is showcased to the entire country

+34 Are you quitting your job? If so, how?

Personally, my boss is horrifyingly uptight. I am definitely quitting (if I get too bored, I'll volunteer somewhere). I'd probably just ghost her. I'm afraid of what I'd say to her otherwise. She's not mean, just a bad boss.

+42 I have won three times. Pray for me!

I’ve won the Ohio Lottery three separate times, twice on the same game, and twice in the same city. At this point, I’m convinced it means something. I want money to give back. I want to benefit my family, community, and those in need around me. I truly believe at this point that the lottery can...

+30 How much is a good amount to win to remain "normal"?

Would you like to win $1 billion+ dollars or a smaller but sufficient amount? At that point you become a public figure that will probably need security 24/7 for the rest of your life (Edwin Castro), unlikely to mingle with the billionaire businessmen but also hard to keep socializing with your pr...

+202 If you won could you really keep it a secret?

I talk to my wife and we both talk about taking jobs with way less responsibility and stress. Like I would literally work fast-food or be a bus driver just to contribute to society. The problem is when you start going on trips more people will start having their suspicions. I would try to make...

+17 Thoughts?

So it depends on how much I win, but I would want to help out my entire family in some way. I know the cat would eventually get out of the bag, but if I start off giving everyone some decent money then how could they be mad. Idk. This is like if I win hundreds of millions. If it’s only 10 then I’...

+192 I told the clerk who sold me the ticket that I’d give her a million dollars if I won.

I was taking a road trip and this particular gas station was pretty far removed from just about everywhere, and she shoots back sarcastically with “Yeah, right… like you’d actually drive all the way out here from wherever you’re from just to give some random green-haired girl at a gas station mi...

+18 I think I'd either be generous to my own detriment or generous in a jerky way

Like, I really want everyone I know to have everything and be happy. BUT I'd have a really hard time doing it string free. Like, yeah, sis I love you SO much and I'm going to buy you a house. . . .next door to me. Hey, bestie, here's the information for your chartered private jet. . ...

+29 Not if but when

A hand full of people I plan on giving money to once I win the cash4life jackpot. Do you think the amount is generous? How many family members do you plan on giving money to?

+12 [To theists] Do you ever pray to God that you would win a lottery? Why or why not? And if you do, how do you pray without sounding ridiculous? :D

Please do not laugh at me for this but I am trying to self prophesise my way into winning a house on a lottery, and truly am trying to picture winning everyday. I have also been trying to pray everyday as I childishly have always wanted a beautiful huge luxurious house with furniture included. I ...
