Do you play the lottery?
Are you one of those weirdos who thinks about what they'd do with the money if they won, but never actually play?
What would you buy if you won? (Current amount for my state is $35 million so we'll go with that amount to win)

We only play when it's bigger than $10 million!

I would buy a huge piece of land with lots of trees and hire people to build me a big log cabin style house and a man made lake, and we would travel the world while it was being built! Each child would get a chunk into a savings/RESP account.

The obvious new vehicles, and also a '69 Chevelle for me

the rest would sit in the bank and we would live off the interest!

the best part is in Canada you don't have to pay taxes on lottery winnings!

Do you play the lottery? nope, unless you count the occasional scratch-off {which I haven't actually played since I turned 18 }
Are you one of those weirdos who thinks about what they'd do with the money if they won, but never actually play? once in awhile
What would you buy if you won? (Current amount for my state is $35 million so we'll go with that amount to win) a house!

Fully fund 3 college funds. Buy our best friends a house. See if our parents wanted any big presents. Get my car fixed. Give a big chunk to Border Collie rescue, and put the rest away into something earning interest so it can give us play money for the rest of our lives. We would NOT acquire new debt or totally change our standard of living (moving into a mansion, buying luxury cars, etc) because I think that's how most lottery winners go bankrupt.

I play on very rare occasions...my dad plays all the time. I don't really think about what I would do if I won, but DH and I will preface a wild idea with "when we win the lottery..." LOL not because we actually are thinking about the lottery but because we know the idea is crazy expensive and something we will never do but would like to
