What would be the first thing you would do if you had won in the lottery?

18 posts in this topic

I would travel the whole world and try to absorb (and enjoy, of course) as much as possible the culture in each place I visit. B|

After the trip, I would invest in transport and oil area. The rest of the money I just would keep in my bank account. :D

I would love to buy a house and some amazing sports cars. The rest would probably go to a secure bank where I can make some interest from that money. I may also try and invest in some good startups or some companies so that I can make the money I won even more.

Sports cars and startups (which are becoming increasingly popular) are very good choices too! B|

I hope one day we can all accomplish all these dreams. :1300_clap_tone1:

I think if I won the lottery I would make sure my close family had some money so they could live happy, maybe buy a villa out somewhere and live in paradise with them haha.

I have been buying lottery tickets to give myself hope in fulfilling my dream. If ever I won the lotto jackpot, I would buy a farm land and build a vacation house there. As they say, I am a simple person with simple needs so probably that vacation house would be my utmost satisfaction. And for the rest of the money? I would use it to help people especially those who are worthy of my  help.

I definitively would invest in any profitable business as my first option, you know money is no here for ever, so you have to find a way to earn more. Then I would travel  and maybe would buy a beach house. ;)

The first thing I would buy would be a sleek black sports car. Then I would be able to get to the viewings of all the mansions I am going to buy quickly and in style!!

Wow! A villa? (I remembered the movie "Signs" :ph34r:, haha) This sounds quiet unusual but at the same time, an interesting choice. 

Good choice! B|

The first thing I will be interested to f in doing if I win the lottery is to invest in real estates. As much as the money can go I will like get houses in choice locations locally and internationally.

After reading the question, the first thing that struck my mind is buying an island in the Caribbean. Usually I used to day I will donate some portion of the money to the charity, give some portion to my parents and siblings and take the remaining with me to the vacation with wife.

I love this question because I believe in affirmations and I believe that posting in this thread will attract luck and increase the possibility of winning in the lottery. So good luck to us guys.

I have been planning this a long time so I'm quite ready with my answer. The first thing I'll do is collect the check and open an account with the bank that issued the check. That is to make sure that the check will clear on the very same minute that I opened the account. I will then withdraw a substantial amount, about 50%, for deposit to my son's account. I'll withdraw another 10% as my tithe for the church. 

The 20% will be used to buy a large farm because that's where I intend to retire, and perhaps buy myself a franchise of the most popular fastfood companies. I will use the other 20% to give some cash to my brother and sisters, my nephews and niece, and to treat ourselves to a grand vacation.

I would invest in a business so that my money would never deplete. I would then try creating a chain of companies so that I would be able to help the world.

Wow! Winning a lottery would be a dream come true! If I ever won a lottery with a lot of money, I would first invest half of it in such a way that I am assured of a fixed income in the form of interests and returns. From the remaining money, I would buy a decent bungalow with a lot of land around for gardening. The remaining money would go towards helping out relatives, traveling around the world, indulging myself with whatever I fancy, in general having a good time with it.

It depends on how much money I won from the lottery. If it's millions worth, I will keep 25% of the winnings first. 75% will be used in buying properties that can be leased or rented. I'll buy a foreclosed building and rebuild it into a condo type building and make more money with the rent it will rake in. If there is more money left I might start a small manufacturing business. the other 25% I would use to support myself while the business aren't yet earning.

If that happens, it will first depend on how much I've won. If it's just a small amount then probably I will put up a small business to run so my money will generate income. If it's bigger, I will buy properties like hectares of land and I would buy myself an island. Then I would put up my own business so my money won't sleep. Generally, I'll get things which will generate more money for me so that I won't worry that my money will get wasted :)

If I were the winner of a jackpot the first thing I would do is to take a Life Insurance for a huge sum.  It won’t take that much time to spend all those money so I think it would be better if we make our family’s future bright. If something happens to me at least they don’t have to suffer.  I would also deposit some money in bank to get a handsome monthly income as interest.   I would use 50% of my money for these two and the rest I would use to enjoy life and off course some money for charity.

Anyway I am not going to leave my job, may be  I also start my own business. Otherwise life would be boring.

If I have won the lottery, I will donate the half to poverty stricken community not monetary of course because I may just cause problems. After that, I will use the quarter of it for my investments, the eight for my own personal stuff, and the remaining I will give them to my family.
