Would definitely quit the job that I am working now, even if it was a One Million dollar win. The only debt I have are a mortgage and a car payment for a 2016 car. Those could easily be paid off with a One Million win. I would certainly consider going back into the workforce but definitely with a job that I WANT to do...

MM with the megaplier 5 would be just fine. $5 million, about $3 million after taxes, and I could make that last 20 or 25 years. Then I'm 87 years old and probably pushing up daisies.
You can afford to push up any type of flower you want!

I would quit without hesitation if I won a jackpot or even something large enough to sit on for a while (Say 600-800k post taxes) while I figure things out
I hate my job ,, If I won a jackpot I would pick up a hobby to pass my time (Probably since I would have a ton of $$$ I would collect sports cards again as I loved that as a kid but was priced out as collector thru years when cards became too expensive a hobby)

I would for sure quit. Anyone that wouldn't quit working is likely mentally ill or bases their entire self worth on their occupation.
I can think of 1,000,000 other things I'd rather be doing than working. Believe me, with travel, spending time with family, working on hobbies, and some philanthropy, I'd never get bored and would have plenty to do. I'm only 40, so I wouldn't quit working unless I had at minimum $40 million after taxes to work with.

I can't agree with the people who say they'll continue working, unless their jobs pay better than a lotto jp.
If I won the jackpot, I'd set myself up with either a shop where I hop up/fix up older Harleys and cars OR, something else that would
help at least the local community, for a bit. For instance, if I won the 203 million, I'll go so far as to
earmark money for the following:
- Childrens' hospitals
- Mercy ship hospital
- Experimental gas station where I'd sell gas for $1.50 per gallon, for premium gas, until the sustained earmarked money
is totally used up, for that venture.
Groppo, why the experimental gas?

Anything above $5 million (well after taxes, around $3 million+). Yes, I'll quit. After all my debt's paid (student loans, medical bills). I will still be in the $3 million bracket. Go back to school, get a graduate degree, take business courses, investment courses and start my own company. No matter how much any employer pays you, you are always replaceable. Being your boss is a gratifying experience. Most importantly, the experience gives you an accomplishment of some sorts. I am decades from retirement but sooner rather than later, I envision myself being my own boss.
Winning makes me smile.
