Default Mega Lotto...Your 1st purchase?

Reality purchase. Something you can buy right away.

What’s it going to be?

First thing I would do is fly family and I out of the state to figure things out.

rent an entire resort somewhere exotic and take it all in.

Big purchases would be so far down the line in that scenario lol.
homes cars etc. But making sure family friends etc are secure and then charitable foundation in place would be priority 1 for me.

Some of the first things I would do would be to retain an attorney(s), and then sit down and draw up a plan for investments, provide for family and likely purchase four properties. Later would probable come about 12 to 15 cars I'd like to have. But the very first thing I would do is sign and secure the ticket and tell no one!

Baller.

My first purchase would be a good attorney and a good financial planner. And unless it's a legal requirement I wouldn't be on TV holding a huge check for everyone to see.

If you sign the back of the ticket over to a trust, instead of your name, you can remain anonymous. If you sign it with your name, you're going to be famous.

I'd call several of my closest friends, and let them know that their mortgages are going to be paid, and their children's college educations are fully funded.
