Default What if you won the lottery?

So the current powerball is at $425 million with a cash value of $278.3 million. This is the largest jackpot in powerball history.

What are some things you'd do if you won this jackpot. Make sure to buy a ticket before Wednesday night.

I'd get to work on trying to turn it into a billion.




Then I'd buy an NBA team and sign Stromile Swift to an eternal max contract.

I would set aside enough to pay bills and college for future kids and important stuff like that for life, then I wouldn't tell anybody except my dad. Once people know you got that kind of $$ they will never treat you the same. You would never be able to know who you can really trust, and that is worth more to me than living flashy.

Totally agree with that statement.

Might as well enjoy it since you can't take it with you. But I am only 21, so I'd be a little careful with it.

Buy the Pacers and be in debt inside of 4 years. But it'd be an awesome 4 years. I'd get a title so I'd be poor but at least I'd get free meals for life in Indy.

I would buy one can of easy cheese and pack of ritz crackers every week, plus a bottle of cran-raspberry drank.



I would then buy one of everything they all wanted from the Italian Job.

i'd probably have a panic attack if not a heart attack. i couldn't imagine being able to get what ever my kids ask for and not have to say that i can't afford it.

I really don't think my lifestyle would change too much. I'd probably buy a house, no mansion, just a 4 bedroom house or something. Buy a car, a RSX or something. And just enjoy life.

I'd be a lame millionaire.
