Have you ever bought a lottery ticket?
Which lottery?
What would you do if you won the jackpot (e.g. $50M)?

Have you ever bought a lottery ticket? Yes
Which lottery? 649 mostly
What would you do if you won the jackpot (e.g. $50M)? Invest most of it for the kids, give to some charities, share some with family, buy a house in the (NOT a mansion, nothing even really big actually) and I'd look into opening a horse ranch/camp for children with special needs.

Which lottery? Usually Lottario. Sometimes 649 and rarely LottoMax
What would you do if you won the jackpot (e.g. $50M)? Make all of my family and close friends millionaires and give some money to diabetes research. Then travel half of every year.

Yes, but not for a long time. I would play some of the scratch tickets and. Also, for a while at work, a few of us got together to play 649. If I won, we would invest a lot, pay off our house and cars, and spend our lives doing work we love, rather than work that pays the best.

Have you ever bought a lottery ticket? DH bought our first ever this weekend. I've bought tons of bingo and crossword scratch tickets in the past though
Which lottery? we bought a lottomax ticket
What would you do if you won the jackpot (e.g. $50M)? pay off our house, the truck, top up our RRSPs, give some to family, some to charity, and stick the rest in the bank for a rainy day and live off the interest.

ive never bought a lottery ticket, but if i did and won some money, we would pay off our car and probably buy a new house, maybe build one in the country, probably buy a 2nd car, put money away for the kids university, put away stuff to retire with, if there was anything left over we would probably just save it for when we need it

we also wouldnt worry about picking up things just because we want it anymore

I sometimes buy 649 and lottomax when I'm at the gas station

I'd pay off all debt, save $50k per kid for university then invest the rest in tbills or something stable to draw out a little bit each year for life-I'd still work for fun
