    Well... Up front: pay the IRS.  Give them their share (which is probably half...), and be done with it. 

     Then, I'd start by creating a joint account with my siblings; I'd make the account in my name, but give them access to it - that way, the taxes on the money has already been paid, and they can use it for a new house, pay off bills, new cars... etc. 

      Next, friends - pay off mortgages, bills... I have a friend at work that is upside down on their house, and I'd pay that sucker off & give them a new life.  And everyone in my section would get a $10,000 prepaid Visa card. 

    If it was one of the larger jackpots - the $250 million or more - then, I'd approach the restaurants and businesses in my town, and ask what they'd need to just live until COVID finally went away... Keep everyone alive until times are better.  At the same time, I'd go to the service organizations - Kiwanis, Lions Club, Boys & Girls Club, Scouts, Oddfellows, VFW, American Legion, Shriner's Hospitals - and make sure they had funds to help out all the kids & veterans for a few years. 

    And, I just want enough to live & travel on...  I'd make myself & many others happy... That would be cool...

    Drugs, lots of drugs. Been sober for 16 years but only because I couldn't maintain. If I didn't have to worry about money and rent and making ends meet I'm sure I would do drugs, they're awesome. I'm also pretty sure I'd be dead within a year, so I don't play the lottery.

    Depends on how much $ was involved. I won the lottery last year...$10 didn't go far.

    That depends very much on how much I would win.

    I've won several times already...but never more than $10.
