Mega lotto ball power millions!!!!

I’m not a big fan of state lotteries in general. When I see somebody who obviously isn’t independently wealthy blowing $100 at a time on scratch-offs or daily games it makes me sick. That being said, I guess I’m a hypocrite because I do tend to buy 1 ticket each when the jackpots get big. I realize if I want to be a millionaire I’ll probably have to earn it but I figure 4-5 bucks is ok just to have my name in the pool with everybody else.
800 million, though, is a ridiculous number. What would you do if you hit for hundreds of millions? I assume you take care of your immediate family but how much and do you just split it up or do you dole it out like you’re the king? And what about more distant family and friends? This is the kind of money that would have cousins, uncles and college roommates coming out of the woodwork. And it’s not impossible to blow 800 mil and end up back where you started. Do you disappear and start a new life or what?

you establish a trust , have the trust pick up the check..don't change your life dramatically. no fancy cars etc...donate a lot anonymously..

But vacation first class etc...enjoy not having any financial responsibilities..

Main House out west (maybe Canada) with plenty of land, including at least one mountain, that isn't in a national forest so I can take untracked snowmobile laps (it'd be nice if the place was near a ski area for social skiing). Doesn't have to be a huge house, but it has to have great views & awesome access.

Private Island in the Carribean with small yacht (for fun island hopping adventures).

Small House in New Zealand for summer skiing & winter MTB.

Small private plane & pilot on call for the first few years so I don't have to spend all my time traveling from place to place.

Charity donations to environmental causes, SPLC, and other organizations that I like.

The rest of the money is for putting in a Hedge Fund whose yield would cover the expenses on those properties & living expenses for the rest of my life.

Depending on how much money I end up with after all of that stuff, I might do really crazy things like buy Big Tupper, hire snoloco to design the latest, state of the art lift & snowmaking system, hire GravityLogic to make the nicest flow trails, buy half of the town of Tupper Lake & hire local contractors to refurbish buildings & sell at a loss to boost the area up.

I got my ticket, too.

I buy Greek Peak ---- the hotel becomes my house

I hunt, fish, ski, ride sled everyday

All are welcome to my house --- if I or any of my friends don't like you you will have to leave. Boo will be head of security.

This looks like a nice Island for me:

This looks like a nice Western home base:

Even has an indoor shooting range for camp when he comes out to visit.

After buying those two places, I'd still be richer than Mitt Romney.

Best part of buying a ticket is the dreaming what you can do in the days before the drawing.

Everyone who posts on this board gets to go Heliskiing except for JTG. I'm going to hire someone to taunt him mercilessly as I use an army of tax attorneys to pay less taxes than he does.

I don't play, but this is fun...

Lump sum = 500 million.

I'd donate half of it off the bat.  Not sure to who, but to something interesting and trustworthy.


The rest I'd put into trust, like Jason said.  Live off the interest.  Even at 5% return, that's like 12 million a year.  I'd be living a lot different than I am now though...

I'd probably donate half that yearly sum to something local.  Parks and recreation, after school programs, hospitals, etc..

I'd take a couple million from the first year and buy a house on Upper Saranac Lake.  And maybe a few more and buy a vacation house in the Tahoe region.  Nothing too fancy, just nice location.

In the next few years I'd take some of that excess and start a fabrication business.  Something small and on the side to keep me busy on rainy days.  Job shop type shit.

The rest of my time would be recreating and building bike and ski trails.
