This is the first thing I'd do, starting at the 1:15 mark:

Then you know...... retire, buy a few houses, travel, invest, yadda yadda.....

This year in my country there was a record amount of 4,5 million Euros in lottery. Out of 7 numbers needed to win it all, I've won 5 numbers, so close to win it all yet so far away.

Interesting part is that I picked numbers which my favourite players wear(basketball,soccer).

3- Roberto Carlos
6- Lebron James
17- Nani
23- Michael Jordan, Lebron James
24- Kobe Bryant

Those are the numbers that I've guessed and I've won 200 . Damn should be numbers 5 and 13 which prevented me from winning 4,5 million

I'd invest in a few businesses that I'd have my closest friends and relatives work at so they wouldn't have to rely on me forever for money.

I'd buy a pretty nice house in a quiet neighborhood, purchase at least 1 Lamborghini (if not @ least 1 Ferrari as well), a few motorcycles, and then try to not spend all my money on more cars.

Pay off my student loans, buy a new house instead of wasting my money on rent. Buy 2 cars, build myself a basketball court, and help out my parents and siblings.

Invest the rest.

And how do you plan on keeping this secret from everybody else?

Do you continually plan on going to work five days a week at the same job and driving perhaps a slightly upgraded car from what you have now?

The biggest difference in most people's lives I'd imagine after winning the lottery is the ability to quit their current job. Unless you're already the boss of your own company or at an executive level position, it would be extremely hard to continually give up so much of your time everyday doing something when you know there are other things you could be doing.

Less than 48 hours till someone's life changes. Bought two tickets today. I'm pretty sure more than one person will win tomorrow. If no one wins, this jackpot will reach like $800 million

BTW, would you guys play in those lottery pools.

Bought two tickets today. I love when the lottery gets high like this, it's worth a dollar or two just to have the possibility of winning. Plus all the money goes to the education system, so you are supporting our youth by playing.

Here's your playbook. It's written by the guy who wrote Easy Rider which Dennis Hopper and Peter Fonda spent the rest of their lives claiming they were the main author while never ever writing another film.

I've noticed California always has winners in the Megamillions lottery. now you'll have all the powerball winnings whenever you guys can play.
