+46 If I won the lottery I'd probably have to move

I live in a third world country but have been tempted to buy US lottery tickets online. If I ever did and actually became a multi-millionaire I'd have to keep it quiet. Its the kind of place that nobody is surprised when rich people's relatives get kidnapped and held for ransom. So for e...

+50 IIWTL, I'd donate the entire amount to tinnitus research.

Even with all these advanced technologies in modern healthcare, Tinnitus still remains as an elephant in the room and very less people have got awareness about this condition.

+11 I wouldn’t do it anonymously, I’d do it in public so I can flex on everyone who has previously wronged me

Everyone who wronged would feel like absolute shit when they see me rewarding those who were kind to me, money. They will regret not making me happy, and have to live with the fact they won’t be getting set for life. And they would’ve if they had been nice to me. The regret would eat them up....

+61 I would buy a slot for a whole section of Super Bowl commercials

And play commercials from the 90s to confuse people but also bring them a wholesome amount of nostalgia 🥺 https://youtu.be/dMphz8qyh3E

+21 Recalculation of my Rule-of-Thumb.

In the past I've calculated it out and my rule of thumb was 'for every million in the jackpot, you get 0.4 million lump-sum and after taxes. Well, interest rates and what-nots have changed and the factor is more like 0.5. So, if the PowerBall jackpot is, say, $236 Million; you'd have ...

+35 Having your own private rail car

As a train lover this seems really cool. Full article with pictures: https://www.wsj.com/articles/wealthy-train-buffs-are-traveling-cross-country-in-super-luxe-railcars-hitched-to-amtrak-trains-1521727200 There currently are about 150 private railcars (also called “varnish”) in good enough sha...

+84 If I won a large lottery I would hire an architect to design a home for me.

I’m really only worried about the basement, specifically the laundry room. I require a laundry room of 15 feet by 15 feet. Stain proof ceramic tiling from floor to ceiling. I’m a man who likes to do his own laundry... and sometimes it gets messy. Steel chains will dangle from the ceiling at a hei...

+18 How do you feel about giving money for charity/poor?

I've seen lot of posts about buying luxury cars and houses (and i wrote one too) but with huge amount of money, i'd be hard to spend it all on myself. And i'd be really sorry for all these people who didn't even have 5 dollars to buy something to eat, while i'm in luxury car d...

+55 What are some fun but "useless" things you'd do/buy with your millions?

Everyone wants to get those mansions, cars, fancy clothes etc. but what about the items or ideas that are a little more... "out there"? Here's a silly but fun thing I'd buy if I won the lottery: I'm both into geography as well as into astronomy. For this reason, I like glo...

+32 I would simply immigrate to the UK

I would move to the U.K as an investor, get a place with my boyfriend. And live in a comfortable silence helping those around me. I’ve struggled enough in my life I deserve some peace.

+28 Moving to another country.

So if I ever won a sizable amount of money I always thought I would move to the UK or Norway. How easy would this be especially since you could hire immigration attorneys? Could you at least buy a house and live there even if you weren't a full citizen?

+42 If I won the lottery I would start a scavenger hunt.

I would buy 9 cars, stick $50,000 in each of their trunks, and hide them around the US. I would then announce the scavenger hunt (anonymously) and give hints to the locations. Once all 9 are found I would announce 1 more car is out there with $1 million dollars in it and that the location is hidd...

+36 MegaMillions Jackpot Gets Bumped Up

The jackpot for today's drawing was started out at $396 million but today the billboard displayed $402 million! Only when the sales are brisker than expected do they adjust the jackpot up like this. So it may be even bigger, is what I'm thinking. Rough estimate is 160.8 million in the b...

+73 I would buy every dilapidated farm house property in my county and proceed to clean them up.

Old abandoned farm houses and falling down barns, disused farm equipment, rusted out cars are potential eco disasters. I'd form a LLC and start making negotiations with the land owners. The recovered properties could then be donated for parks and recreation.

+40 I’d buy that $10m mansion with a lazy river that flows through a haunted cave

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=6CNU5E1N4FU I saw this a few years ago but still one of the coolest backyard water park ideas. I can’t fathom the electricity and maintenance that goes into this - but I love it. I would also build a basement home theater that’s modeled after a haunted house the...

+38 I would buy the crappy rental I live in . . . .

TO be totally fair, we're undercharged for rent even considering how badly this house need updates. But, just purely to see it done, I would buy the house from the landlord and fix everything that needed fixing, then I would let my in laws stay living here while me and my SO bought our own, ...

+20 If i won Eurojackpot... My plan and little, humble list.

So, Eurojackpot is now 62.000.000 euro. First off, its insane amount of money and it will be really hard to spend all of these. But let's try... First off, i'd never ever tell anyone that i won. Especially my relatives, not because im greedy but because they will tell everybody about it ...

+16 The little things to make life easier - the people I'd hire

I've been thinking long and hard about this. If I won Powerball. I really want a driver for those times when I just can't be bothered with traffic, like going to dinner or driving to a mates beach house on a Friday night. I'm a car guy and would be spending a bit on a fleet of reaso...

+17 My weird and wonderful IIWTL fantasy

I would hire a team to start breeding the world's most perfect dogs. They would be extremely cute, smart, and cuddly while requiring minimal grooming. They soon become the world's greatest seeing eye dogs – they can get you dressed, cook for you, and pick up your amazon packages from the...

+68 I hate being tied to a job

And thats the biggest relief from winning the lottery. I wouldn't have to do work a boring or stressful job just to avoid homelessness. I think that alone would make me happier by 60%.

There's a 10million house in Montana on 40 acres, would move there, bring my mom and my SOs mom and dad and never speak to anyone ever again Edit: here's the link, since someone pointed out I should add it. https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/786-Limestone-Rd-Bozeman-MT-59715/212898222_...

+39 If I win the lottery...

If I want a lottery, why would it be important for me to get an attorney? And how much would an attorney charge? And should I take the annuity or the lump sum?

+31 This sub used to be about extravagant, nonsensical luxury items that someone with lottery money could afford.

You people disgust me. Once upon a time this sub was a bastion of dreams and crazy stretch goals. Now, it's a bunch of people asking for advice in the million to one case they win. Or having ridiculous conversations about living off of 100 million dollars as if 10 million wouldn't change ...

+106 Has this sub become overly-serious?

For me, this sub has always been about the fantasy about the weird and wonderful shit we'd do on the off-chance we won the lottery. Whether it's private islands, fancy cars or just trolling people in elaborate ways. Now at least half the posts I see are about attorneys, tax and generall...
