    How would you spend $380 million?

    Two lottery tickets were winners in a January 2011 Mega Millions drawing, and the winners split a $380 million jackpot.  We all dream of winning, but what would you do with that money?

    If I was lucky enough to do win something like that, I would pay off ALL my debt, put away for my kids schooling, and remember that the rest should not be blown just because I can spend it. I would want to help out some family but remember that I control the money, it doesn't control me.  I would say the majority of it would go into savings that way if anything happened to my family or in case of an emergency we would have that to fall back on.

    I would probably give away 3/4 of it, and live a life of ease on a few hundred acres. I would give money to random people on the streets, find people that are going threw a hard time with foreclosures or bills. I would just be a generally nice fellow, because I would enjoy it if someone did it for me.

    cant imagine that much money ! I would have to spend time working it out , the best ways to use it to help others without just giving hand outs .
    Give a man a fish , you teach him how to fish you feed him for a lifetime!
    Too many people would just waste it .
    Would travel the world almost straight away for sure!

    If I had that amount I would use it to secure my family's future first and then start to help alleviate the poverty situation around the world. This is one of my goals in life and will soon become a reality in my life. Helping others that are less fortunate than me.

    Well first of all, I would pay off my parents debts for them! Then I would buy my dream house and dream car, save some of it, and donate some to help the people in Darfur. I would also probably buy lots of gifts for my friends, lol.  It's hard to imagine what to do with that much money!

    I would buy a house and a new car.  I would hire a housekeeper for my new house.  Then pay bills and help family out  Do I mention I would quit my job?

    I would invest it and use the profit from that to donate to charity, pay bills, and donate it to charity.

    I would set myself and family and friends up for life with everything we'd ever need and then donate heaps to charity and help other people out

    Retire and enjoy rest of my life. Immagine. You don't have to work to pay your bills. You can just do the things you like, cultivate your interests, read and follow the courses yo want, take risks, start a small business you always dreamed of without fears of failure and not able to meet your ends.

    I would help set up some college funds for some really deserving people.Give to my favorite charities and set up businesses that produce and train business savy franchise owners.

    Living very well is worthless without the joys of helping others. is an interesting website for lotto players. Enjoy!
