Just wondering if you personally would ask for money if someone you know wins a jackpot. It's up to you to consider how much money you would consider a jackpot.

        No, if I won I would hate to be bugged for money by anyone.  So I'd treat them how I want to be treated.  No matter who won, I wouldn't even expect them to give me any but wouldn't turn it down if someone offered either.

            I don't want to bother you larry but I have this idea for chicken soup on a stick I want to talk to you about if you win.

            You'd be nuts not to get in on the ground floor on this one.

                  I made a lot of enemies in my life.  Don't know anyone who likes me enough to give me money.

                  Now if I won the lottery and I was being interviewed as to what I plan to do with my money, I would say that I already know which charities I'm donating to and I'm staying tight-lipped about it.  Never say that you're not sure even if it's true or otherwise more people will take advantage of your uncertainty and come knocking at your door.

                          If they had previously owed me money for whatever reason, then yes. But I get the feeling you're talking about a handout, in which case... NO!!

                          There's absolutely no reason to ask and definitely no reason they should feel obligated to win. I've never understood why people call/write winners asking them to pay their bills, I don't go to my neighbors house asking them to buy my groceries every few weeks or stop by the car lot randomly asking if they will give me a free car.
