Many lottery winners have stated in their press release that they will continue to play the lottery.  If you were so lucky to win a large jackpot,  and then a second one what would you do with the second jackpot?  Would you Invest it, Spend it on things you didn't buy with your first jackpot, Give the ticket to family member/friend, or give to a charity?  I would probably give the whole thing to a charity.  Because if I won a large jackpot (100 million plus) I don't think I would need any more, and also I wouldn't want to draw any more media attention to myself.  CNN and other channels would have a field day with the story. How about yourself??

    Funny you should post this, Peter.  I had that "fantasy dream" only last week.  If I won a lot of money the first time and could live well off of it, I would probably give the second ticket to one of my sisters.

      If I won a second Jackpot it would be because the first one wasn't big enough for what my wife and I dream about doing with a lottery type windfall.

      If the jackpot was big enough the first time around I wouldn't play again.

      I would give none to charity because saying I would give money to charity is against my beliefs on laws of attraction.

      You live a life of abundance! You have won the lottery! Belief creates reality! Believe!

        Well my goal is to be a billionaire, so if I hadn't accomplished that goal by the time of the 2nd win I would probably keep most of it and invest it. I'd give some to my family.

          There's a lady in New Jersey, I think it was, who hit the jackpot twice, and today lives in a mobile home, on her social security. 

          Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

          There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                I have thought about that myself and although not quite sure what I would do with the money

                I do know the second time around I would take the annuity

                  The world is full of people who have blown their first, second, third and fourth chances. Very few people get two chances with the lottery, but the people who win are just like everyone else. Some will handle it well, and some won't. I can't really imagine doing it, but I at least see a difference between blowing two $1 million wins and blowing two bigger wins. You really have to have some very bad luck or very bad decision making skills to blow $2 million or more unless you have a lot more than that.

                  If I were so lucky as to win 2 jackpots, what I'd do with the second would depend on the size of the first.  If the first was enough to satisfy my reasonable fantasies I'd use the second for more charitable causes. Here in reality I'm far less likely than others to win multiple jackpots, because if I won a first I wouldn't be very likely to continue playing. I might  buy a few tickets for the huge ones, but I certainly wouldn't play regularly.

                      Winning the lottery a second time is just that wining it again! Every bit of the money will remain mine and no one else would get one plum nickle of it (with the exception of Uncle Sam of course)! The first jackpot (100 million) I won, I would've taken care of who and what charities I thought should be taken care of the first time around........... end of story!

                      Keep dreaming the impossible dream, it just may come true! Thumbs Up

                        I'd do the same thing most everybody else would: spend some, invest some, give some to charity through my Foundation, that's about it.
