    I don't know about taxes etc. in the USA, but overhere the total amount is taxfree.
    Only taxes have to be paid on the interest.

    Anyway, how much does one need?
    From 365 million, i would make sure to "keep" 65 million or so. Money that i would never touch (or something like that)

    Lots of people would suddenly have some extra money in their bankaccount; some would be rich, some would have a very very nice bonus.

      the first thing that would come to mind would be that i would have no worries about bills.just that alone makes life a whole lot easier.

        ok the jackpot is $365 million, if you took cash option it would be $141,150,000 (no state tax) and then the year pay would be $9,125,000 every year for the next 30 years (no state tax) and that would be a total of $273,750,000. wow thats alot of greenbacks

          Wow... it is hard to say what I would do.. My hubby wants to just travel... and travel...

          he would give the business away for sure..

          I dont think I am ready to give up my career.. So it would be hard for me to travel..

                After state and federal taxes I am looking at about roughly $99,232,000 so I would have a lot of fun in my local casino and trying for the next jackpot and I would also start to travel to Vancouver Washington for Mega Millions tickets.  Life would be with less financial head aches like not living from check to check.-weshar75

                  I would be at Caesars in Vegas so fast it would make your head spin like a slot machine reel.

                  Find me in the high roller blackjack area.

                  Then.....lots of travel.

                  Party

                    Yeah but think about how many condoms you could buy!  LOL

                     

                    I'll invest MOST of it.  Buy a house, but not out right.  (I'll use the interest as a deductable....I'm going to need all the deductables I can get!  LOL)  I hire my family to do stupid stuff....like my Sister would be paid to be my shopping buddy and pay her BIG money to do it.  That way I'm not totally screwed in gift taxes. 

                    I'd travel.  Give my tithes.  Give to the less fortunate.  Which with that kind of money everyone would be!  LOL.

                    My biggest thing would be bills.  Not having to EVER worry about them again.  Not having to wonder if I buy these pants....would that make such and such check bounce?  You know?  Just being finiacially worry free.  I will double up or even triple up on insurance for EVERYTHING!  lol

                    Just to be able to breathe easier......

                    Ponder

                    No No

                    Don't cry over spilled milk.  Go milk another cow!!

                      I'd do a lot of good for humanity.  I'd do a lot of good for family - immediate and extended, and I'd do a lot of good for me.
