I would definitely quit my job prior to cashing in my ticket. I just couldn't bare to see those sad and envious faces staring back at me at my work.

For some reason, I envision a long line of people at my front door in need of really expensive medical procedures.

I think I would have to disappear for a short time to get my new life together as a millionaire.

Then, I would set up my personal life as I wish and then set up an account at some hospital where I could direct all of those medical procedure people to.

After all, the interest on that amount of money is just as overwhelming as the principal. May as well donate much of it to people who are truely in need.

I think I could come out with a clean conscious by following that plan and be remembered as someone who made a difference in the lives of others.

And then there is plan 'B'... Party like a Rock Star!!!

      I'd be happy that I beat the system and also be happy that I won all my money back plus some.  I'd be happy just winning Cash 3/4.

        Let me make this perfectly clear--

         

        I would pass go, collect the cash and go straight to Vegas and see how much I can win or lose, whatever!!!

          I think I would go crazy!!!!  Seriously, I would grab each of my children and hug them really tight and take them all on a huge family vacation.........and who knows?  The vacation may never end.

          Good luck to all on this system!

          Regards, Mel

            Considering I'm not playing Powerball right now, either amazed or disappointed.

              We don't have Powerball in Singapore, the only one that I've played is the Australian Powerball.  If I win, I'll probably slap myself to see if I'm awake or not.

                Since I don't play Powerball, I'll describe what I'd do if I won Mega Million.

                1. Check the ticket about ten times to make sure I read it right.

                2. Sign ticket.

                3. Take ticket to bank safe deposit box.

                4. Go back home, sit down at the dining room table and make out a new budget.

                5. Plan who I should tell when.  I'm inclined at this point to think I wouldn't even tell family until after the ticket had been validated and perhaps even until after the news conference, but there have been periods that circumstances would change that.

                6. Make decisions on what financial advisors to involve, based upon the size of the win.
