+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 ...

+34 Is anyone else here concerned about the Oregon Powerball winner?

Apparently the person in Oregon who won the huge Powerball jackpot a few days ago has already come forward. It hasn't even been a week since the drawing, and Oregon gives lottery jackpot winners up to one year to claim winnings. IMO, the only person the winner should be revealing their win ...

+239 What is the one big purchase you would make if winning the Powerball tonight?

I would buy the house of my dreams. I would want a nice chunk of land so I can have a garden and to let my cats and dogs run wild when I obtain additional cats and dogs. That is the one thing I would really invest in. The house also would never be sold and it would be the house that I die in. Man...

+70 How much is too much?

Even though I got a ticket for the powerball I'm not sure if I really want to hit a jackpot this big. I'm over 50, no kids, parents and wife have all passed and am currently not dating to my loss. I have no idea what I would really do with all that money, hell I'm not sure what I'...

+43 Do you have a breakdown of where your theoretical lottery winnings would go?

As I have it figured, of the total winnings: About 50% gets taken out of the lump sum 25% would go to a foundation to give away (and avoid upfront taxes) Uncle Sam would take about 10%. About 3.5% would go to my family. 1.5% for upfront costs like buying anew house. Of the total, I'd be le...

+339 What disguise would you wear to claim your winning lottery ticket if you can’t do it anonymously?

I live in a state where I can’t do it anonymously but you can still pick it up under a trust. If you were in a state like this, what name would you put for your trust, something wacky or something super normal sounding like the name of a generic sounding law firm. Also how would you dress, me per...

+16 What do you guys think of this house? Much more affordable than the last one I posted, lol

I doubt I would personally buy this if I won one of the big jackpots, as my house budget is "only" $20 million if I win one of the big jackpots. But this place sure does look nice and may be right for one of you if you win. 😀

+67 Here's one idea for how to spend the current Mega Millions or Powerball jackpot

Personally, this is way too much house for me, lol. I would buy a much more modest house. I just happened across this listing and thought it would be fun to share here. 😄

+14 If I hit the €29M EuroMillions jackpot tonight

Is it smart to buy an house for €2,5M with this jackpot (free of taxes in France) ? 5 bedrooms, 4 bathroom, 180 square meters and 3 000 square meters of land. This is the place I love to be in summer in France, close to beach and best surf spot of Europe, a very beautiful area.

+29 I'm set on a nice beach house in California and a Harlem Brownstone for when I win big.

I would feel satisfied with a decent sized beach house in California. I love warm weather. And I also need a place in New York and I've always loved brownstones. My grandmother lived in Harlem. Would be nice to live there. Y'all got any specific homes you dream of?

+104 I don't get why so many people want these uber-expensive massive homes if they were to win the Mega Millions / Power ball.

It's like they are completely unaware of the taxes and maintenance that goes along with such a huge house. Plus, many of these homes are in gated communities which actually increases your chance of being burglarized. Me? Give me a nice medium-large house on at least 2 acres, no HOA on a pa...

+140 If you win the lottery relatively young (under 50) how do you maneuver in your new social life?

Hypothetically if you’re a single person and want to expand your social circle and have relationships with new people. How does a lottery winner go about telling people what they do? Saying you’re unemployed gives off a bad vibe, saying you won the lottery just puts a target on your back. For me ...

+242 How does a new lottery winner say that they are unemployed without being a turn-off?

If you have come into a life-changing amount of money by winning a lottery jackpot (enough to easily last the remainder of your life and still have plenty leftover), and when you meet new people, and they inevitably ask you what you do for a living, how can you answer them in a way that keeps you...

+28 Opening a liquor store business if I won the lottery

In Texas, some cities do not allow the sale of liquor in stores. I would take advantage of this by opening one just outside the city limits. After getting a license, I’ll use the lottery winnings to stock up on a huge variety of booze for my dry city residents to access.

+22 Supporting local businesses

If you won the lottery, would you be buying products, groceries, or meals from local businesses even if they are a bit more pricey than corporate owned businesses? I would definitely do so.

+64 How far would you move?

If you won the lottery. How far away would you move? Same town? Different part of the state or across country? Never to be seen again! I would probably move across country. Or at the minimum one state away. Start fresh.

+26 What's your cover story?

They say don't tell anyone you won. I live in a very close neighborhood, and am really close to my family. If I suddenly stop working, they'll notice. I think my cover story is that I'm doing something similar to what I'm doing now (my boss actually discussed us starting an offsh...

+18 If you live in a jurisdiction that does not allow you to collect anonymous. How would you protect yourself ?

Not American. Sometimes I agonize over playing the lottery because I am genuinely scared of the idea of (1) all my family members' personality transforming overnight and giving them money bleeds me dry. (2) being kidnapped/bribed. Sometimes I even avoid the bigger jackpots and play small...

+69 What would you define as life changing money?

I certainly play pb and mm, but also play smaller games with hopes to win because of better odds. The more I think about it, I don’t think it’s worth it for me to play them. I want life changing money, meaning, I can quit my job the next , I can pay off everything, start my own ventures being abl...

1) If someone had to claim their ticket physically how would they make sure that they weren’t followed when they left? 2) is it okay to get an attorney who practices in a different state than you? for example, if i live in california but i find a reputable lawyer in Texas, could i still work wi...
