We've seen a lot of polls about sharing your lottery win ( when you finally hit the big one ) with your family.

Here is the situation in reverse - if one of your relatives hit the big one would they remember you ??

      If any of my five siblings won, I'm sure they would offer the other siblings at least something, like $10,000 or $20,000, and more to the sibling and to other close relatives who are disabled.  I suspect they would also offer more to those relatives who otherwise have the least, just as I would do. 

      If a neice or nephew won, they would share with their surviving parent, no doubt, but beyond that I have no idea.

      Other than sharing with their own children, what my stepchildren would do if they won is anybody's guess.

        Knowing my relatives, first they would never tell and second, they would never admit to have aquiring their wealth via Lottery and third, they would look at me and say your related by WHO?

          I picked "depends on which one" because I've actually brought this up asking "Hypothetically, if you won the lottery..."

            Did one/some of them actually come out and say "No, you'd get nothing if I won 100 billion dollars"?

              Yes, but not in those exact words, Lilly.  It was probably more along the line of "If you won $50 million would you give me something, even $100,000?"  The answer was "I have 2 children."  When I asked "What if I won the lottery?"  The same person replied "That's different."

                Ah, slightly more subtle.  lol  I have one of those too.  Mine would never come out and say she wouldn't give me anything tho, only because it might come back to haunt her if I should ever win.  But she doesn't say she would give me something either.  I know she wouldn't do anything more than maybe take me to dinner.

                    If you mean any family member, it's "I really don't know."

                    If you mean a particular family member, I can definitley say no.

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

                    Lep

                    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.

                        Very fortunate with my family.  We share.  The good and the bad.

                        love to nibble those micey feet.

                          All I know is, if I win the lottery, the only family members that can even EXPECT to receive money from me are my parents and sister. I'm not going to be so happy if one of my other family members comes to me for money because they want to buy material objects(car, house, stereo, etc). Now if they need help with debt or bills, the amount I give them(or not give them) depends on their situation and the amount they need. They sure as hell better not be thinking "Oooooooooh, I'm gonna get me a piece of that".

                              I can honestly say no one in my family would share their winnings with me. I would them, but not the other way around. Why? Because I want to. Plus if I hold all that bitterness in me toward them, I am no better than they are. I share. I have always shared. And I plan on continuing to do it. Yeah, there are those I can't stand. But I would probably still give them something,afterall. I have no idea why they wouldn't share with me. Just know they wouldn't because they don't now.
