    after you win the lottery you can't just go out and buy everything, before you know it you would be in way over your head and thats what makes lottery winners into losers

      I wouldn't want a house too big, nothing that would require a staff to operate. I would go with nothing more than 2k sq. ft. ... the property however, 5 acres minimum! Plus one condo in Myrtle Beach ;-)

      Playing more than one ticket per game is betting against yourself.

          KRB03 I agree with you, but let's not forget Jack!  Money can change people for the bad if they don't have a plan.

          Personally.... I want lots of land (10 acres at least, 40 would be better) with a minimum of 7 bedrooms (have 5 kids ranging from 10y/o to will be born in 3 weeks!)  I guess it would end up being about 4500 sq ft once I figured in entertainment rooms and stuff.  I would build though, because there is no chance of finding my dream house in my podunk IA area!

          I wouldn't do any major travelling until all my children could enjoy the trip.  My biggest dream though... would be to hire one of those uber-nannies from the UK, maybe then my 2 step-sons would realize I'm actually quite the sweetheart even though I make them do chores!  LOL
