Lump Sum .. I won't be around for 30 years.

What would I do with the winnings?

Bacon ! LOL

I would get myself into a nice single level house in an area where I would be happy.

I would donate a quarter of it to the humane society.

I would open trust accounts for my grands.

I would spend some of it in silly ways just because I could.

Invest at least half of it.

Lump sum. I'm too old for a 30 year payout.

Lump sum, lots of donations to different charities, take care of family. Cars, a home base house with all the tweeks in the kitchen and we would travel.

Party pooper!! ;) there's always another Jackpot just around the corner ...... :). I would probably take a lump sum, invest lots of it, donate some to research for various illnesses, make sure my family members were "comfortable". Then some travel. I don't need much, I'm a simple woman :))

We just had a man from here in Canada win $40 million in our Lotto Max. He said he was rich enough and that he had enough to provide for his four children and 6 grandchildren. So, he is donating the entire sum to charity, mostly for Cancer Research in the name of his late wife.

I would definitely donate to charity, but I would provide for family members and friends. For us, I think we would by a large piece of property in the Valley and maybe open a little café where we could train at-risk teens a skill. That's been a dream of ours.

The thread title could apply to any lottery, Andy. It is good to dream!
