VA has the MM & is getting PB...so it got me to thinking, what if you won both??? Also, what if the jacpots were 200+ million a piece...assuming they aren't shared with alot of people...would you keep on jackpot and give the other one away, would you keep both??? I have never heard of this happening but it could...who knows right?

 

I would not keep both...I would have to do something good with the other jackpot.

      Scared

      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.

        I'd be freaking out if I won one jackpot. LOL If I won both PB and MM, I would probably have a heart attack.

          Green laughYou are so right ScaryChick.

          And yes, I would keep both. I would use the money as I please. Of course give some to charities of my choice over time. But, take a look back at people who have gone out of their way to give out their newly found wealth. Winners are missing, scammed, and baggers lurk outside of their doors. People seem to mistake giving to those in "need" as supporting those in "want."

          I would try my best to remain anonymous or move where no one knows my names.

                Suppose that you won a single jackpot of $32 million instead of the two starting jackpots of 12 and 20 million? Or 150 instead of 75 and 75? There's a huge difference in the odds that it would happen, but what's the difference in terms of what you would or wouldn't do with the money?

                  I ask myself: 'Would a relative share with me if they won the Lotto?'

                  That answer tells me what I would do - donate 80% of it to charity, and I'd live off the other 20%.

                  Oh wait - I already did that.

                    ohhhhhhhhh the good I could do with double the jackpots!

                     That in itself is a job! So quitting the 8hr job is a mute point.

                    With great power comes even greater responsibilities.....is a true statement.

                      Hell yeah I would keep both. I would donate to charities anonymously and start a non profit organization of some kind.

                          if i won both, i try and do a forceful take over on the fruit market places in the south, to i wiped out all the farmers with cut throat prices

                           

                          i bring the ass kicking back to free markets and would not stop to i had a monopoly on the market

                          then i find something else to take over, today fruits,tomorrow the world! mwhahaha

                           

                           

                          joking aside, i think i would just build a massive under ground base with all that money

                          you know my own end of the world bunker,

                          so if the world and all the humans on it, start to go to hell,i just wait them out playing video games underground,

                          to the only people left, return to just live and let live,

                           

                          long term plan

                          maybe for the  first jackpot, i buy a ton of land, the 2nd big  jackpot win would just be ,

                          hmm all this land, now what to do with it

                          now to Build more stuff on it ofc!

                          put ever thing you can think of on it, your own gaint indoor pools

                          ,mini water park, Hot Tubs & Saunas

                          gym with gaint trampolines, any thing i could think of for the sake of having  fun i could have

                          build a gaint Sky Tower with a kickass observatory level , hell ya

                          put a bed on observatory level and have my own Evil Tower , hovering above the world, sleeping

                          i bet the GREAT view of the stars be the greatest background to look up at while falling asleep

                          i build stuff for my self,

                          just for the sake of building stuff, my land will look as if a rich  King had a  major engineering habit!

                          think i also make a  great wall of my own around my land,   

                          i make other rich people look tame in their Mega mansions  by the time i get tired of building stuff

                          it be know as a city onto it self,just for 1 person

                           

                          even my own airport landing strip, with helicopter.planes so forth

                           

                          and if their sure money left,  i end up just building a mega yacht, make it a unsinkable design, just to say,

                          if world floods over itself , am ready for it LOL
