That's a LOT of money. I'd buy a modest house and try to help the people of the world who live hand to mouth every moment after helping out relatives, of course. It would be nice to provide schools and hospitals and clean water to as many as possible. I've always felt that the Appalachian area has been forgotten while everyone everywhere else whines and gets handouts. I like that no-kill shelter idea too because there aren't any where I am.

I'd bank some, spend some, invest a bunch, and give a bunch a way.

And donate a couple of hundred G's to the NRA. And the republican and tea party.

Keep enough to live comfortably, a mill or so, and donate the rest to organ transplant organizations....
Get a lawyer, buy an rv and travel the country, then the world!

First, pay off all our bills, take care of family,friends, and neighbors in need, but not to excess lest they waste it; buy a new car or truck, but not a fancy one; invest a bunch; start a no-kill animal shelter; donate, donate, donate, but not to just anything. Oh, and fix up the house. Then, just sit back, relax, and see who else we could help out.
I would invest in family, frends & neighbors. Hire a house keeper and nurse and sit back and relax.
Jeff is right. #1. Hire a lawyer/accountant to go pick the prize up annonamously cause you will be hounded unmercifully if you don't.

Spend it on wine, women, and gambling, the rest I would just waste. Actually, after taking the lump sum, paying he taxes, and paying off debts I would give some to the churches I have attended along the path, give my family members as much as possible without disrupting their lives too much, and with the remainder just try and enjoy the rest of my life. Always wanted to see Oz. True friends wouldn't change, those that do change aren't real friends anyway.

First thing I'd do? Buy the Marietta Times.

Do my best to avoid what happens to most lotto winners: ending up penniless and friendless in less than five years...
