With the cash option and after taxes you would come home with about 334 million. I would take 330 million and put it into CD's and you could get about 3.5% so and that would come out to be about $11.5 million a year. I could live off of the interest and still put back more to invest. I would buy a few of places to live in different parts of the country and enjoy.

If I won the entire amount, first I would get a lawyer and s very good CPA, take a few weeks to decide what and how to do it. Next I would probably retire, take care of my extended family and then but a few ranches and shere to retire too and then start setting up my extremly long bucket list hunts and places to go with the wife. No kids so I will dpend every last penny!

I would have to buy somewhere in South Texas. It would probably take me a couple years of shopping to find the perfect place though. Oh just the thought of it makes me feel good.

835,000+/- but the king ranch is awfully proud of their name.

There are better calculated odds you would die 3 times driving to buy a ticket than actually winning.

Never have understood the rush to buy tix when it gets super big but not buying tix when itís a ďmeaslyĒ $50-75 million

Either is life altering. I say buy every time or donít buy all. I donít ever buy tickets, but I would hope a TBHer wins. Well maybe some of them

Some land in Alaska on willow creek. My grand father had a fifth wheel camper at a fish camp there when I was young. Lot of great memories there. Would at least like to take my grand son there.
