First- get a lawyer
Second- set up trusts for my entire immediate family
Third- quit my job inconspicuously
Fourth- take off to a exotic beach vacation. Party with family and friends for a couple months.
Buy everything I want, take the money and try to make more money with it. Retire early and do charity work around the world


Not picking on you in particular but this attitude is why most lottery winners end up broke. They give to "family & friends" and are made to feel bad for not doing so and they buy everything on impulse because they feel their lifestyle needs to change now that they have money. I wouldn't change anything about my life for at least a year and slowly buy up assets over time. Not even my immediate family would know I won. Only the lawyer that set up the blind trust.

Biggest mistake MC Hammer ever made was keeping every one he ever knew on the payroll.

I will commit to paying off every one of my family's debts if I won so everyone is given a fresh start. I'm not sponsoring bad habits and greed.

I would set up my family first. Then I would build a nice house in my hometown, donate to some of my favorite charities, then travel the world.

If you do that they will end up resenting you because you won't bail them out again and again. Better to say no in the beginning IMO.

Assets such as 200MM in cash holdings? You'd build that in day 1.

Not change anything.Lulz.

Buy a huge tract of land. Build a motocross track on it. Tons of toys. That probably wouldn't spend anywhere close to 15 million.

This kind of immediate wealth is going to change the way your family looks at you whether you like it or not.

Anybody who resents the person paying off their debts isnt someone I want to be around anyway.

I'd split it evenly with my two siblings, and I'd give my first cousins a million or so each. ~$40 million is way more than I need to indulge my wildest fantasies, and if the others want to blow their share, that's on them.
