+29 How much would you need to build the house of your dreams?

So if I won the lottery, I would love to build a house like the video below but more modern. How much do you think you would need to win, to be able to hire an architect and build a house like that? I feel like I wouldnt need much else to be happy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kYnvq0s17lI &#...

+31 Settle this question for me…

I have told my family if I win a mega size jackpot, I will share with people I like. People I hate, I will make a large donation in their name to charities I know they will hate. They get nothing, charities make out. People tell me this is ridiculous but I think I am helping my karma with this pl...

+20 If I won the lottery

So much good would come from it, not only would I pay off my mom’s house, but I would also get my own house closer to work. I’m not going to be one of those greedy people, I would still go to work but I would instead invest it into my retirement funds. Lottery money is only good for so long, yes ...

+66 IF I WIN THE $153,000,000 Jackpot (Mega Millions)

I will take cash option ($85.9 million). I will collect $50,000,000 after taxes. I live in Ohio for the record. I will immediately put $40,000,000 into savings. I will withdrawal this until I am 100. At 3.5% inflation (average) I will be able to withdrawal the equivalent of $7,000 per month...

+11 I’ve thought about this since I was young...

I would first pay off my dad’s debt/mortgage & buy a new car... next I would buy a new house on the outskirts of London/ a neighbouring county (more value for your money)... then invest in rental properties up north(and other business ventures... afterwards I would complete the houses in Ugan...

+61 If I won, I’d get out of my apartment (which is run by a slumlord)

I just don’t want to be poor anymore, guys. I want a house, a good car, and time to do things with my husband. That’s all I want. And maybe a dog, too.

A new Honda Civic too. I have a 14+ year old car I still use daily. So daily reliability with a new car, promising future through college/trades, and paying off my parents debt helps them and the rest of my family in general.

+13 Would you be disappointed...?

The winner is getting 433 million out of the 1.28 billion advertised. Would you be disappointed if that was all you were getting from what was advertised because of taxes? View Poll

+46 I'd buy a home in Maine and fix it up with all the modern bells and whistles.

If I won the lottery I'd love to move to Maine! I would find a nice home, somewhere within 20 or 30 minutes of a respectable sized town, but not so far away as to be stranded in the winter. I'd spend a portion updating everything to today's standards, and install solar and other sel...

+14 Find out what I'm a savant at

There's a dialogue from Good Will Hunting that always stuck with me: Will: Beethoven, okay. He looked at a piano, and it just made sense to him. He could just play. Skylar: So what are you saying? You play the piano? Will: No, not a lick. I mean, I look at a piano, I see a bunch of keys, t...

+22 I would hope that winning wouldn't change who I am

But that's with the 1.28 billion in Mega and the PB getting to an average max of close to 300 million, I just don't know. What do you all think? Would this money change your core being?

+36 In a video game like Grand Theft Auto, you can use cheats to get millions of dollars. This makes the game far less challenging, and can lead to boredom. Wouldn’t winning the jackpot have a similar effect in real life?

I’m not saying winning the lottery jackpot (millions of dollars) wouldn’t give you more freedom or satisfaction, but it does seem like a “life emulation” game such as RDR2 or GTA V can teach us; in a less dramatic (and more violent) way, about how we would respond to massive amounts of wealth in ...

+28 A blind trust

Can someone explain how a blind trust works? I see alot about not signing the back of your ticket. Is it safe only being a trustee? Is that safe? Is YOUR money safe? Like I have access to the money at all times? I know people use this method so they can stay anonymous. In my state they disclose ...

+40 if I win, I'd give a million to all my coworkers, and more to random people I encounter

At the end of the day it's just a currency, and when I'm dead & gone it will not matter, so bless as many people as you can if you do win.

+32 Method for surrounding yourself with the right post-lottery team?

It's pretty well established that any lottery winner should find a number of professionals (e.g. lawyer, financial/estate planner, etc.) that could help said winner make the 'right' decisions for their goal(s). Considering what happened with the 'lottery lawyer' Jay Kurland, w...

+17 I would carry on as usual until my birthday next year

It would give me time to figure out what to responsibly do with that kind of cash. AND still retire a year younger than my Dad who retired at 48. All the while no one knows I'm rich AF so there's no pressure.

+63 I’m happy for whoever wins.

I’ve spent so long dreaming of winning the lottery, I don’t expect (or even hope) to win anymore, but I’m happy to see this huge jackpot and I’ll be happy just knowing how much joy it will bring to someone out there. Good luck, folks.

+32 I would build a custom home.

I spend so much time on zillow looking at dream homes and none fits perfectly. I need a home with an adult/fancy area for me, adult family and guests to spend time in. I also need a separate one for kids with a complete kids play area. Indoor for when it's too hot or cold and outdoor ente...

+20 Quitting your job question:

A lot of people seem to be split on whether they will quit their job if they win big. I am one of the quit the job people, but since a lot of my job is work from home or travel work, I wouldn't let anyone know I quit, at least for a good long while. How about you? View Poll

+23 Question about lucky for life jackpots, how would you handle it?

For those that do not know, the lucky for life jackpot gives you a 1000 dollars a day for life (or 20 years if you die early), so roughly 240k a year after taxes. I think there is a cash option for you to get like 5 million or so at once, but I am focusing on standard win type for now. To tho...
