If a family member wins huge jackpot and shares with you, would you share with your friends?

    One of the few reasons I vote *maybe* is : 1: If its my parent who won, she would want that I give a portion to my children (who are at an age where I can call them *friendly* adults). 2: If its a friend that needs a medical wheelchair or a house modification to ease their lifestyle. 3: If its a friend, its doubtfull that they would *expect* any of my lucratic winnings. they are my friends beyond any money factor. Besides most of my friends would tell me to keep the money and enjoy its perks! 4: Ifs its one of my siblings, they wouldnt share so I'm sure its not even a question to ponder or speculate on. My siblings and I are in agreement that He who winnth doth not shareth with ye sibs! ( matter of fact it was that way growing up!- It was a great way to learn about democracy )

        Yup, I agree with LottoMike.... it depends on how much the first friend or relative generously gave me. Of course I'd do what I always do when I win more than a few $s... and give 10% to charity...

          I don't know what I would do.  I think I would give some to charity...  And buy gifts for friends so I know where the money goes.

          How are you going to win if you don't play?

              When my Dad won the Minnesota Gopher 5 back in 2004, he gave some to us kids and the grandkids if they were in need .................... but that was it!  You know, two-thirds of $110,000 only goes so far. 

              If you do win a jackpot, SAVE YOUR MONEY!  Take care of your family FIRST ...... especially if they have been good to you!  The one thing I've learned about friends is that they rarely adhere to the rules of quid pro quo (i.e. I'll give you money if you give me money).  So with this in mind, don't expect your friends to give you money if they win a jackpot either.  Odds are that they won't!

              Good Luck,

                  I have never expected a family member to give me money to give to my friends or anybody else and if a family member can afford to give his money away, then he doesn't need any of mine even if I won a lottery.

                    If I win the jackpot, I would talk to my married sister, my dad, and my family their advice before spliting the money.

                      money never made friends more grateful.  give the money to a charity or to someone who's truly in need, and don't expect to get the money back. I bailed out my mom with 125 K out of my own pocket when she was burdened with hundreds of thousands of debt after my dad died.  i managed her estate and helped repay the back taxes and outstanding loans. now, she's worth over a million and i've never been repaid a fraction.
