What would you do if you won the lottery? - January 9th 2016, 07:13 PM

So it's the lottery roll over here in the UK with just under £60 million to be won

If I won the lottery, I would:

  • Buy a Land Rover (even if I can't drive )
  • Buy a house and maybe some land.
  • Go on a tour of America, and then go visit Canada and Europe. Definitely go somewhere where I can go husky sledding!
  • I would like to have a team of my own huskies, but not sure I could handle that haha
  • Treat my mum, brothers and close friends to whatever they wanted to have or do.
  • I'd probably fix up this house too- whatever my mum wants to with it.
  • Save some.
  • Donate to charity (especially TeenHelp!)
  • I'd like to remain anonymous though and I would still train to become a teacher.
So, what would you do if you won the lottery?

Spend a third on booze, a third on women and I'd waste the rest.

Pay off my student loans and my mom's mortgage
Donate some to charity
And I could go back to school debt free for pretty much anything.

The first thing that comes to mind is pay off my tuition for undergrad, grad, and PHD. The powerball in my area is almost up to like a billion. I could pay off my parents' mortgage and depending on how much I have left I can set aside money for a home and car someday.

I would pay all the debts my parents owe, then I'd by a huge plot of land and I would get some horses, pigs, chickens, ducks, and cows. I'd make sure my land would be surrounded by trees and away from other people.

Pay off my student loans and finance the rest of my college education instead of having to take out loans. I'd also buy myself a house, a new car, pay off my parents' mortgage, buy my brother a car, and the obvious - travel around Europe.

Re: What would you do if you won the lottery? - January 13th 2016, 05:35 PM

It's up to 4 billion USD here. To be honest, I think they should do something about that money, like put it towards something our country could use or the lower classes could use. Because who the heck can spend 1.4 billion dollars in their lifetime? Even if 1.375 was put away towards a will, it'd take a hundred generations for that money to be gone!

But anyways, if I won $1.4 billion, I'd live life as a nomad. I would move out, begin travelling the world, meeting new people, trying new food. I'd go places I can only dream of ever going. I'd also go to the university I want to go to, and not have to worry about getting into debt.

I'd pay my student loans, first of all. Then I'd buy myself a car. And then I'd buy myself a house, and then furnish said house. Then I'd buy my parents a house. Then I'd buy my cousin and her family a house and pay for them to move closer to us. I'd pay off my family's debts. I'd probably donate a bunch to schools and teachers. And then I'd save the rest and become a teacher. I'd probably travel during the summers.

Pay off my debts and student loans, give a bit to family but ultimately I'd like to use this money to help people and ensure I have a comfortable life even if I choose never to work ever again.

I'd go back to university and get my MSc, maybe a few more degrees who knows? I could just stay at university learning until I die

I'd donate/invest money with scientific studies and researchers. Some that would ensure I get some money back ( some drug discovery) and some just because I'm interested in the study topic (I'd pay scientists to get working on cures for HIV/cancer and then if a cure was discovered ensure that it can be accessed by EVERYONE and wasn't sold for profits).

Buy flats/houses all over the UK and rent them to people. I'd make sure that the rent cost was based on how much income they have rather than just setting a flat-rate. Rent in so many cities is way to expensive and people are spending so much of their income just on rent, this way they'd know they can afford it even if their circumstances change.

Start my own animal rescue that takes in older/chronically ill animals from other shelters which are unlikely to be adopted and making sure they have a nice life.

Since I don't have to pay for anything yet I would just put some in a savings account for college and donate the rest to multiple different charities.

Pay off my student loans, buy my mum a cottage in the countryside, pay for my sisters to go to university or start a business or whatever they want to do to get ahead in life, go travelling, buy a dog.
