What would you buy if you won the lottery?





jb2_86_uk
Well, First thing I would do is get myself a second hand Ferrari as quick as I could possibly get my hands on it, then I would place orders for some more new exotic supercars (Im thinkin Lamb Gallardo, Ferrari F430). After that I would need to buy a biiiig house with an even bigger garage to put them all in. Then after I had had enough fun in my supercars and waiting for my new ones, I would take a holiday to hawaii with all my friends and have a great time. After that I would just spend the rest of the money on general living and keeping myself entertained with expensive toys!

I would also donate some of the money to charities and give some to my parents to help them with their current project of restoring an old french farm to a B&B and to pay them back for all the money they have spent raising me Smile

What would you do?

hmm..good question.... If I won the lottery I would buy a really nice car, nothing expensive, maybe like a Supra or an Impreza WRX. Then I would buy a nice middle class house and fill it up with lots of furniture, I would probably end up saving it for future generations of little me's LOL. Oh yea, and clothes, LOTS of clothes.

That really is a hard question. I think that if I won the lottery, I would first buy myself a Corvette. Then I would do a couple things to make my life easier (computer that will actually do the things that I want it to do and the software that I need for school and work). Then I would give a lot of it to my church. My church is trying to put together a multi million dollar building project right now and it would really help them to have that money. Then Anything else I would have after that I would save for the future. I am looking at Full Sail as a college and it is pretty expensive. So that money would be very helpful then.

I would spent all the money to build and run a private college, where teachers would be really paid the money they deserve and students would get desired education not something that is obsolete for couple of years. Smile Yep you can guess that most of the colleges in my country are just plain bad. Wink

How much is the lottery exactly?

If I had a couple of Mill $ I would first build my house for my family to live in. We already own the land but the house is too small.

Then I'd start a business. Probably a medical clinic with a Cath-lab so that my Country folk can have the benefits and I too will have a sustained earning. Right now they have to go to foreign countries for Angiograms and such.

I'll invest some money and give it to my parents so they can live comfortably, financially independent.

I'd also allocate some for leasure such as a holiday with my family.

I'd buy the baddest meanest Alienware PC AND laptop available.

I've thought of this question for a long time. Very Happy
hrtorrent
I would buy a bubble gum, and for a all of resting money i would buy lolypops...

David_Pardy
I would buy myself and my fiance new cars and have them converted to manual if they aren't already. Then I'd do mine up and probably hers Very Happy

I'd buy us a nice two story house and build a studio underground in our yard

I'd learn how to fly and buy myself a plane

I'd buy ALL the drumming gear I could ever want!

I'd give a significant amount to my parents

I'd give a significant amount to charity

I'd give a significant amount to my church

Whatever's left over I would invest so as I have emergency money/savings for when I need to pay rego, bills, etc.

I would continue to work of course! Just because you've won money doesn't mean it'll last forever!

I'd buy A whole Army of Mercenaries and I'll invade the World in Eighty Days.

...It's the movie I plan to make, Invade the World in Eighty Days, What did you think I was going to do invade the world?

Nah, Seriously, I'd put it in a Bank and Live off the Interest. I mean $10 Million Dollar Jackpot in a Bank @ 3% Interest, Thats $300,000.00 in Income a Year. Enough to buy a BMW, A Ranch and To live off.

I heard that!!

Seriously I don't know what I would do, certainly a new network with plenty of bandwith (I already have a nice car). Build my band to the max (no pun intended), and setup all my family and friends so they wouldn't have to worry about bills anymore.
godam64

I want a Holden Commodore station wagon, they've only made them in Autos (except for a limited edition V8, I don't want a VCool since 1999. I'm sure I can get my fiance whatever car she'll want in a manual, I'm gonna be the difficult one Wink.

hmmm... buy a McLaren SLR and a Nissan Skyline and then construct a racetrack... Smile and then drive my heart out !
jarred89
I would buy a good house, a whole production company and a radio station
GProject
I'd buy a cinema! I'd love to own a cinema - maybe buy one of the old single or dual screen ones that have shut down now and refurbish it. Get a whole set of new equiptment (projector, platters, screen, amps, speakers etc.) and then rent some prints and watch movies all day!

If I'd won enough money maybe I could get a digital projection system too - that would be amazing.

Oh, and I'd give some to my parents and go on holiday and stuff.
shun
I'll say buy a piece of land, a big one, and establish your own country.
watersoul
I would give lots of money to my family and close friends, then buy some land in the South West of England (Cornwall or Devon area) with woods, river or stream, where i would live in peace - growing oak trees!
Another thing i would definately do is establish some kind of charitable fund where people can apply for help for various things where they have no other source of funding and if their need is genuine my fund could consider filling the gap. I'm obviously not sure of the details as I havent won the lottery yet, but one day... yes, one day!
amusic
I would start my own business with those money and earn money from money.

Isn't the SLR out of Production? I remember that it's a Limited Edition Car where only a few hundreds where made and Paris Hilton has one of them, So does Donald Trump.

Maybe you should steal it from Paris? I mean she is used to people stealing her stuff, Like the time her Mother Day's Gift was stolen.

BTW...1234 Post, LOL

Yey.. someone has the same idea as i do!! Very Happy

I would live off the interest too... say if i won £8mill... Thats £800 per day interest, or just about.
And if i wanted someone exspesive, i'd just wait few days till my interest had built up to that amount Smile

With it i dont think i'd change much, im nt greedy, i dont want much. I'd buy a new guitar, big amp.. and a small car Smile
bdoneck
A really really really nice computer. Thats probably it, I would quit working and put the rest in a savings account and some in an IRA as well
jasmine
Someone asked me the same question before and for me, it wasnt what I will buy first but, what I will do with it.

20% will go to my family

20% will go to buy and furnish a house (I'm not after a mansion anyway. I simple, comfy house is enough for me)

20% will go to charity

20% wil go savings (hey! It is best to have a savings account for the future)

and 20% for anything else! ( IN here I can include the best PC I could possibly afford. Not to mention other gadgets. Very Happy )
Mr Smith
Depending on how much I won, I would create a Low Power Fm station, and hire some staff. That is my DREAM
standready
Firsst a good percentage would go to various charities. Then I think I would look at a new car so my 1984 could take it easy. A new computer would be nice too since mine is 7 years old. And, of course, donate to Frihost.
Josso
I'd probably divide 10% into family and friends (if they needed help) and put the rest in the bank for the time being to gather interest. I'd first of all update my studio and get a really really sweet new PC, including a mac for all my video editing and whatnot.
shwetanshu
xbox 360, a n93, a very very good computer, an ipod and a high end digicam
scotty
I'd splurge on a car, motor bike, house and then just put the rest in the bank. You never know when you might need it, also interest is nice! Just keep living the way you are (for me thats perfectly comfortable now) and improve only the things you need!
710ths
Yes exactly how much I won would determine what I would do with it. Would it be enough to give up work, would I really want to. Probably not Id need to do something it would not be working for someone else. Even as little as £100k would set me up in a business. £1m I would give some to my family so they were confortable.

Would I give some to my kids....sorry NO. not until they were 25 years old and had experienced a bit of hardwork and struggle. Sound mean but its kind of important and they would appreaciate the money later.

As for my parents they would want for nothing. They have worked hard all their lives and supported me. It would now be my turn.

in a nut shell:

Nice house
Nice Car - DB7, Porche
Invest in property
Life would be so fine..dream on!
The Czar
Now, now, I don't believe in people saying that it will go to charity ... Although it is possible ... I have planned to put 30% aside in savings ... 20% aside in family's savings and 50% for anything I want ...

Its just one thing ... A custom built supercomputer specifically tailored to play games ...

10GB Graphics card ... 100GB RAM ... 20GHz Processing Power ...
10TB Of Storage ... 200MBits/S Internet Connection ...

A Man Can Dream ......... Laughing

It depends on for how much. But i would have to say i would buy a 1970 LS6 454 Chevy Chevelle SS. Me and my friend talked about how we would buy the houses on my street tear them down and make a big house (thats about ten houses) So i would do that. Then i might think about making a casino out in Las Vegas so that my mom could gamble away her money to me Wink I'd buy some big 60 inch plasma tvs for my monitors for my computer and i would buy a huge one for my wall. Very Happy

Then after that i would have to buy like this huge fishtank like the size of my wall. And i would make it like where i have lizzards in there tiny corn snakes turtles fish all corts of things in there. It would b like having a mini world in my room Very Happy

Chevelles were nice indeed, but I happen to own a 1970 Corvette Stingray...much better in MHO Wink (btw mine has a not exactly 427) Very Happy
Scott
I would really want to start some sort of charitable organization, I would love to run something like that. I'd also buy some land somewhere with an awesome view, and without much nearby, and build a studio there. And of course I'd get some pretty sweet equipment for it. I would also share with my family. There are probably more things I'm not thinking of, but honestly, I'm pretty satisfied with my life without the lottery.
crimson_aria
If I won the lottery with a really big big big big big amount of money, I'd buy Adobe. Hehe.

I'll make donations too.

Hey max now thinking about it i would by my mom one of them. She wants a corvett so bad. So there thats another thing i would buy.

Oh yea, I also plan to have a gigantic garden in my lot... so I guess a lot of landscaping expenses is also included in my lottery money. LOL
Insanity
I want to just ease my parents life from working so hard and give them like 40% of it and I'll just spend the rest on whatever comes along. I would like to believe that I would give a lot of it to charity, but to be honest I don't know if I actually would. Crying or Very sad
fx-trading-education
If I would won a very large amount of money, I would take a small percentage (10-15%) for buying useful things like a house and maybe small things like a new computer. But nothing like a very expensive car because there is no use for me.

With the rest of the money I will invest it in order to get the equivalence to my current salary (so no big risk) and just will stop to work and spend my time with my family and in leisure activities.
Vrythramax
Is there a reason for digging up an old topic? If not this one is going to be toast shortly.
justnewbie
if i won the lottery (well at least 1 million us dollar) , i would spent them and start a company and hire lots of idiotic programmers to make some sort of game.. and me, as the president of the company, i will slowly take over and merge other small companies ... those with creative patented ideas and develop their ideas as if they were my ideas.. and slowly i would buy "phd" for myself and hopefully become the next bill gates in the next thirty years or become the richest man ever (in history) measured by profit per second ..

for those who wish to keep that money in bank : invest your money in something else, its hell a lot faster to make the pancake bigger

Iíll buy everyone I know the bestest computer and give them broadband connectivity and challenge them to play retro games like Starcraft and Pod Racer against me while free pizza and Coke gets delivered every hour on the hour. Iíll hire a Shiatsu masseuse to work on this knot in my neck full time. Iíll buy South America and change it into a retirement village for neglected or abandoned pets. Iíll pay more clever people to develop modes of transport that do not rely on fossil fuel. Iíll buy Antarctica and pay really, really clever people to invent something that will make all layers want to go live there. Then Iíll buy some ice cream and a bit of billyís . . . no a lot of billyís and chips and cold drinks. Basically Iíll have a party.

I would first go to Australia.

Then, when I come back, I would save some money for my studying at the university, then I would buy a big lcd screen, a dvd burner, then deposit half of the money I have left on the bank for later use, and then I would donate the money that's left to some aid organisation.

I'd buy my mom a house in Ireland, because she's taking 19 credits in college AND working part-time so she can become a cardiovascular tech. They're hiring really well in Ireland and that's where she wants to live, so she's sacrificing her time to get a better job so we can move there. A house, preferrably in or near Dublin, maybe close to Co. Galway.

I'd buy my dad a really big workshop, because he likes to build things. And more guitars. He loves to play guitar, lol.

I'd buy my grandma... I'm not sure what she'd like. My grandfather passed away this past January, so she's lonely. But still active... I guess I'd buy her a quiet cottage on a small lake somewhere.

I'd buy myself season tickets for the theatre in Spring Green in my state of Wisconsin. I'm in love with the theater and that theatre in particular puts on some of the best shows I've ever seen.

If only if only, eh?

When I'd win in the lottery, I'd do maaany things with the money:
- I'd buy a house
- a nice car
- the best computer aviable
- many nice clothes
- donate to poor people
- donate to frihost Smile

Hm, don't know what to do with the remaining money. I'd probably put it on the bank. I'm actually happy even without billions of money. Yeah, that would make life easier, but it'd be pretty boring Smile
scotty
Okay people this is getting boring, post something that hasn't already been said.

Everybody will either put it away and live like they normally do or go out and buy a house, car, clothes, computer, donate to their favorite charity and then give some money to their extended family and friends.

WHAT WILL YOU DO THAT IS DIFFERENT TO THAT?

(Vastly different, not giving money to bums or something.)

I would buy a very big house, with a special hall in it, which is filled with alot of pc's for LAN parties. On 1 side of the hall will be a stage with a super duper pwnage PC on it. Of course, there will be a very good internet connection too and tubes that are connected to the kitchen with alot of cooks in it that make delicious food. That super PC will have not an ordinary screen but a projector with like 999 billion pixels projected on the wall. And that ammount in free space and RAM too Smile . Then if i would still have money left i would also buy some stuff to place in other places of the house and maybe a car.
Lady_Star
Ummmm... let's see, well the first thing I would do would be a really happy dance... Razz Then I would book a string of flights about a month apart, no scratch that I would buy a jet and hire a pilot so that I could go to all the places that I have ever wanted to travel when ever I wanted. I would then pay for college for my daughters anywhere they wanted to go and I would buy a couple of houses one near each college. I would give my mom and dad each 100k to do with what they wanted (more depending on how much I had won).

I would also donate around 100k to the Diabieties Assoc. to help in providing insulin and toward finding a cure here in the US because it was one of the major contributors in my husbands passing away and I have a niece that also has it.

After that I would just play it by ear saving some so that the interest was more than enough for the things that I wanted.
GOD13
I dont know maybe a few countries and about 1000000 Wemon and an army of 1000000000 people equiped with the lattest in tchnology. Ow and did I mention I would buy this site and enslave all its users. Twisted Evil

First I'd buy anything my heart desires, material-wise. Music albums, a new computer, new stereo, etc.

Then I'd probably save it up to buy a big house.. and I'd build my own weightlifting-gym/room, with a acrobatic training area somewhere as well (plyometric flooring). That would seriously be a dream come true.

I would probably buy out Windows and Bill Gates. Then buy a house, a new car etc.

meetul
hi

I would opt for buying this website
If something remains with me after that, I would like to buy an average car, not really a luxury but something like BMW or so will do.
Then, I would like to have a bunglow somewhere near White House. However, I dont feel that any lottery will enable me to buy this one.
evilryu530
first i would by a huge mansion. then a fleet of nice cars, ferrarriss, mercedes, hummer, maybach, rolls royce, and motorcycles...then i would hire tera patrick, jenna jameson, as my personal servents..

after splurging, i would then stick my money in venture capital opps. some in funds, and stocks, in property, and sit back watch my money grow. as more money rolls in, i will then open a children's foundation that will help inner city youths, children with disabilities, and families that are in need of help and run my charity....
Soulfire
Here's how it's go:

1) Nice new car (nothing specific coming to mind, just a nice car)
2) Home improvement, big time - more decorating, addon, etc.
3) Close in our outdoor hottub (build a small room around it)
4) Invest a portion of it somewhere (good, hopefully)
5) The rest into the bank until I need it

I would buy a house of my own, a new Maruti Esteem Car, a new double-door frost-free refrigerator, LCD TV, new notebook computers for myself and my daughter.
I would also buy new clothes for myself and my family.
I would pay off all debts and invest money in fixed deposits

I would buy a great house and the strangest musical instruments (there is a lot that I want to play on).

I also don't want to spend it alone. I want my hapiness to be shared with my family and relatives.

I would buy the town that i live in and, then I would be mayor. Then with the rest i would fund good causes for my city including school funds and more. I also would buy a airplane.

I'd start my own lottery. Wait a minute, that's probably a good idea anyway - sell 1 million tickets at £2 each and give away £1 million to a lucky winner!
sibbahz
Id personally put most if it in a savings account. Id most likely take a holiday as soon as possible and get a really expensive computer if the win was large enough and save the rest for the future.

I would buy a house and a car. But I do like the other person's idea of buying Delaware. Maybe I'll buy a state too. But I wonder why Delaware?
mstreet
I would buy myself a successful coffee franchise of some sort and a holiday.

That's an interesting question. But, it really just depends on how much I win with the lottery. And since I'm a big-time thinker, I'll start with what I would get if I were to win a 1 million + up prize. I would probably just get myself to a better school, get a new house, and buy video-gaming merchandise. If it were to be 1 million-100k, then I would get:A new TV, video-game merchandise, music, and gifts for my family that they would want.

If I were to get like 5k in general, then I would be getting some gaming mercandise, and buying stuff to make my house look alot better. Maybe even a new TV to replace my current one - It takes like 15 minutes for any pictures to show up on the monitor.

I'll buy a nice house and invest for a business. And also, buy a very good computer with a highest specs.
sbel
I'll put the money in something that helps me get more money or become famous at least.

oh wait...

The best thing i would do is to give a substantial amount to Oprah's Angel Network. Coz right now, having too much money all of a sudden will definitely KILL ME.
Kyraxe
The first thing I would buy is a new house for my wonderful wife. Second I would of course quit my job, then go on a really long trip, travel all over the world, escape life and people for a while.
Then I would buy a really awsome computer system, create a computer room and play computer games all day long (or until my wife needed me for some reason).

Then id get an awsome PC whenever new parts come out (like 8800GTX) and the rest id just live on...that would be the life... *dreams*
Tools and Cheese
Depends on what the amount of money is, but firsly I would buy a large amount of computers and videogame consoles and a huge game library. Razz
RuthW
Well, personally, i would buy a small cosy house in the Alpes, or a mountain somewhere (Somewhere i can ski). Buy a house on a beach somewhere (Somewhere I can Surf). Then buy a medium sized house in England/America where i can perminently live. Then i'd save the rest to pay for the bills for all the houses, etc.

Bliss. Smile
SpellcasterDX
Good question. I never really thought about that since it's nearly impossible to win the lottery. Razz

Anyway, depending on how much I win, I'd donate at least 1/5 of it to a charity. With the rest, I'd pay for college, I'd buy my parents like 3 new cars, buy all the stuff I've ever wanted (ex: a PS3), and buy a good nice-size comfortable house and we could go on a vacation.

The rest I'd deposit into my bank account for when I'm older so I won't have to work and I can have all the money I need. lol. Laughing

But then again, that depends on how much I win. If I win 5 million+ dollars, then yes, I could do what I mentioned above. If I won less than that, then, maybe the last part wouldn't apply. It all depends on how much I won.
darrenpaul
I would buy a nice house. I would then give abit to family and charity.

I would then put the rest into a nice bank account, with absolutely no risk. Wink
amusic

DeathlyHallows
If I won the lottery... I would probably buy a nice house, car, acceccories (phone, TV, computer, etc...). Give some to charity, and then probably start a business.
The3dx

Two chicks at the same time. Laughing
Antoine_935
Hehe ! I think I would build a recording studio (you know, a room isn't a real good place to record songs, there is a lot of noise...), to record myself, but also other musicians.

But also for fun, because I love music, and music technologies

Yeah... but... there will maybe remain some money, then...

why not buy a Porsche Smile and run on Francorchamps, for pleasure !

and remaining money... in a bank account and for family
John6000
I'd buy a decent PC and play css without lag (for once ^_^)
Then i'd buy a big mansion =) and have my own macdonalds in it like in richie rich :p
chastise
I'd buy a small house in Newfoundland, and donate the rest to People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. I'd either do that, or something idiotic like buying a house equipped with the latest technology. I don't know. I don't think I'd fancy winning the lottery. I'm too indecisive.
Jurado
A big cool house and a nice car.
Blu_Spykz
I'd buy a rather nice, large house. 2 cars (a ford puma and a people carrier). A Whole new wardrobe. (the clothes included Laughing)

A holiday. A full sized pool table, jukebox, one armed bandit etc etc.

I;d also put the majority of the winnings in the bank, and invest maybe 100'000 in a growing business.
JBotAlan
If I won the lottery...I'd pay for hosting... Shocked

pashmina
DONATE 50% TO THE CHARITY....
AND 50% I WOULD SPEND IT ON STUFFS!

i would buy the fastest computer.
Billwaa
I will put all my money in the band and pretend I don't have it. Usually, people who won the lottary end up with no good ending, probably becuase they are used to spending a lot and then when they don't have money, they keep on buying lottary and think they will win again and depend on that money to live. I will only use that money only if I have to. If I don't need it, I will pass it on to my sons. And make sure they only use it if they have to.

That is really very true, but putting that beside let me think what i would buy if i won the lottery.um... Confused , firstly i would build a super computer(or 10(im obsessed with super computers, and i love building computers)) then i would buy a nice car and house. The remaining ammount i would invest in a business and try to keep staying a millionaire(hence thats why i quoted the bit above) Very Happy
