If you did, would you also take them on an " all expenses paid " trip to Europe for good measure? We talking friends who have been with you through thick and thin.

        Me too. I used to have pretty good friends in Ohio, but we lost touch with them. Now I don't have what I would call close friends. My wife has a couple she is close with, but not close enough to share a jackpot with as far as I'm concerned.

          No, I would not tell anyone outside of my daughter and siblings.

            It would depend on how much I won.  Under $10 million I don't think we would tell anyone.  I think we could keep any lifestyle change underwraps.  Over $10 million I would probably tell immediate family and one close friend.  I think people might notice the slightly more lavish living.  I probably would pay for some travel if they knew.

                  I'll bet lots of friendships ended when jackpot winners failed to do what their former friends expected them to do. On the other hand a few years ago, a co-worker won a nice jackpot and gave 11 of his golf buddies an all-expenses-paid 5 day golf trip to Mesquite, NV and 4 nights in Vegas.

                    I live in a relatively small town in a non-anonymous claiming state, so friends and foes alike will know if I won.  I honestly would not care who knew.

                    Just as with most everything else in my life, I've always preferred quality over quantity, so I don't have many friends but the ones I do have are good ones.  I doubt I'd take anyone on an all-expense paid trip, but I'd love to be able to help a few who really need it.

                      Sounds like I am with the rest of you, I have a handful of friends, most of which I have had for many, many years.  I choose to help the few relatives I have and would more than likely travel with these friends and family as plans come up.  A very select few people in my "circle".

                          Yes, I would. Because I would offer to help them with student loans if they wanted to and I would not be able to enjoy it without buying a nice car (I'm thinking Tesla), so the question of how could I afford that would come up.

                          an all expense paid trip to Hawaii or New Zealand would be in order.

                           

                          Maybe I'd white lie and tell them I won 3M if I won ten times that.
