  1. If I win I would build state of the art homeless facilities and open a foundation for at risk youth and women. I would also build a company to hire felons to be able to live off a decent wage. I can't forget the animals I would also build a few sanctuaries with top notch care for animals without homes.

  2. Amber "If I won I would put that money into investments, family members, and starting a business."

    Amber has probably never heard this joke about the risks of investing in a new business:

    How to have a million dollars?
    Start by investing a hundred million.

  3. If I won the lottery the first thing I’d do is pay all my family’s medical bills . Then I’d go buy a new house in Hawaii. Then I’d go to Africa and build houses for all the people there.

  4. So basically if you win the money it's not really yours you have to give it back to the community or to some Gov. Funds. Etc. or else they will see that you pay back with tax & other b.s. so as long as you look good in the eyes of the people & media then you have no problems? Yeah so what's the point of winning if we just gonna send right back as charity or donation? 😂😂😂

  5. if i won, i'd talk to elon musk about sending me to mars. Then plot against all you earthling suckers.

  6. So how does the lottery ticket work? So if you bought a lottery ticket and you and nobody has won the money yet. Do you keep using the same ticket when the money goes up or do you have to get a new ticket to try to win again?

  7. The lottery is ridged by the Freemason. Don't waste your time and money. PROOF WATCH: AFTER WATCHING THIS VIDEO YOU'LL NEVER BUY ANOTHER (MEGA MILLIONS) LOTTO TICKET AGAIN

  8. If I win I will create a meme channel empire. I will spend millions for advertising so that my memes would spread into ur devices then into ur eyeballs

  9. All the money people spend on lottery they could be buying cryptos
    and actually make good profit. Buy bitcoin or litcoin instead.

  10. Sounds like an infomercial for us common folk to keep playing the lotto. I've never bought a ticket, maybe one day, but only for entertainment value

  11. I don't need a million dollars to have a happy life all I want is to be wealthy for me and my family so that way you dont worry about the huge amount of dollars

  12. Seriously these lotteries are scams!! You literally have to get to this point to even be worth playing. By the time the feds take out their half along with state & local taxes.

    City taxes in some cases depending where you live like New York for instance. Which I think is like 8% or something lol. Then reality sets in at tax time getting hit yet again.

    Which I heard can be as high as 25 to 30% of your earnings on top of that. WTF's the point here. May as well shoot straight and tell people what they're really getting. :/

  13. "If I won"
    1. Have a financial expert learn total FED taxes withheld. (No state taxes on lottery here.)
    2. Learn what my taxes-owed for the following years would be.
    3. Hire a legal firm to draw up my Living Will and my Last Will & Testament.
    4. Assign responsible beneficiaries to care for my investments.
    5. Pay for my burial plot, engraved headstone, casket, funeral service, and cremation. (My urns would be inside the casket.)
    6. Get medical exams done to have all of my body systems checked.
    7. Find land for sale in a safe rural area to bury money in water/fire proof containers, install 4'0" electric fencing, and maintain property taxes.
    8. Buy one newer model economy car and an eco-friendly one-level home with panic rooms.
    9. Buy 2 handguns, 1 shotgun, 2 rifles (1 semi/1 auto) and 3 Doberman Pinscher puppies (siblings).
    10. Get a college education in Small Business Management and operate a small business hiring Black youth and senior citizens.

  14. I wish I could win so I could fix the world and all of my problems and get things straightened out in my life. I would share it with people that helped me. I know who did and didn't and they do too.

  15. Majority of lottery winners are the luckiest people in the world. People want to say money doesn't matter, money isn't everything lol

  16. I would set up all of my family and close friends for life, put some away in a high interest account and live off the interest before opening an animal rescue shelter in the mountains

  17. Bad idea to tell everyone you built a store out of lottery ticket all these ppl going to find out how many family and friends they have lol now in days leechers have new skills acting they your friends instead having hands out lol
