but not with this amount!, 

so question is, if u Won, by your self, the over half billion jackpot , with no other winners

how the Hell are gonna spend that much money?

 

 

i for one would pull out monopoly board, invite my friends over,and  say landing on free parking is jackpot

,and u pocket 1000 bucks to take home  ever time u hit it!

also where playing with real money!

 

plus buy a helicopter, build a  heli pad and hanger at new 10 million  new home i be building 

and ofc, i have to get me a 

bugatti Veyron Super Sport car ,sure it costs $2,400,000

but at half a billion bucks, i no longer give a <snip> about cost, 

, so whats things u buy.

or how u invest it?

    "how the Hell are gonna spend that much money?"

    That is the kinda problem I want to have.  I am tired of the problems I have now and want to trade them in for these 'harder' problems.

      As a former pilot, I would be looking to pick up the world's most exclusive business jet, the Gulf Steam V. That's about $40 million, not

      including, fuel, maintenance, insurance, hanger and storage costs, which could easily run another couple million a year.

       

      Homes all over the country, east, west coast, Colorado, Hawaii. Probably another $30-40 million. Of course without question all immediate family

      taken care of, $40-50 million. All my dream vehicles, and latest toy's, another $8-10 million. full time house keepers, chef, personal assistant

      and financial advisor (that would be my sister who is a genius in that field!). That should about cover it. Oh and cannot forget Jill from LP! Hippy

      we had an agreement (not without some whining from a certain LP'er   See Ya!  who resented this idea Crying), that I would give her $250K if the Jackpot

      didn't exceed $600 million. If she should win this 2-nite, that is her agreement with me as well!   Yes Nod  Thanks Jill, your awesome.  Big Smile

        The same as I'd spend any other amount: paying off any debts, condo in NY (really like 101 Warren), furnishings and tech toys (new laptop, two PCs... one for gaming the other for video editing, home entertainment system, etc.). Of course there'd be other small expenses but those are the big ones.

         

        Of course, I'd also first split up with money with family. I just can't see myself ever needing so much, vehicles I want are under $50,000 and even though I'd be buying in NYC I wouldn't be spending anything over $5m and likely under $2m.

          House, cars, gaming pcs, video games, a chef, personal trainer, maid, finincial people, investments, a few vactions, and some race horses.

           

          Although I guess race horses could go under "investments"

                  It has always been my dream to solves problems that cant be solved with money alone, such as providing hot and cold running water and a sanitary system for a undeveloped nation. Or on a smaller scale, ridding NY city of its rat problem. Or maybe I would just call the exterminator to get rid of these <snip> coach roaches and call it a day.

                  After that I would move in next door to Tiger Woods, and make sure my boat is better than his.

                          I'd get my video game script developed into an entire video game series. Spin it off into a TV series and possibly a movie. Would also bring back some cancelled TV series.

                          Cars and houses is a given.

                              To get half a billion to spend we'll need a jackpot with a cash value of about $840 million. Considering the one drawing $652 million in ticket sales that helped to produce the about $470 cash value of the record MM jackpot that cash value may prove to be as high as it can get.

                              That being said it's still fun to discuss spending a quarter billion or even $40 million. With the big bucks in my bank account I would look to buy and create businesses that employ lots of people. The reason some businesses have gone under is they don't make enough profits where a $1 a year in profits would be fine for me. Besides if someone feels they can turn a larger profit, I'll sell it for a nice profit.

                              And no, I won't be running those companies, I'll be doing many of the things other posters have suggested.
