    Default You just won the lottery!

    But you can't spend the money on yourself, unfortunately.

    What do you use the money for?

    Plane tickets for everyone to come to Austria for a Mafia get-together.

    Now you really have no excuses.

    Sort out my family in a modest way - (not buy them mansions and sports cars) and then just go on kickstarter and pay for artists, struggling families, projects...

    Pay off my parent's and siblings' bills and get them better houses, and just help my family financially whenever they need it. Then I would use the rest for charity.

    I would immediately put the vast majority of the money in a secure fund and use the rest for the following purposes:

    1. Beef up security around my house and my family.
    2. Take the family on an extended vacation (6 months to a year).

    I've heard a lot of horror stories about lottery winners and I'm not taking any chances. Once things quiet down, sure I'll pay off family debts and spruce things up a bit.

    I would pay off all family debt. Then invest in a friends business and make it known I want kickbacks as executive junior Vice President of it with a massive wage so the money launders back to me in a way I can spend it on myself.

    Does hiring an assassin to kill me count? I would like to be killed by an assassin. While I am listening to Creed. While on an airplane while they sing that can you take me higher song.

    I guess I can't do that because I am spending money on me to make that happen.

    I guess give it to my family or whatever. They need it.

    If I can't spend it on myself, give 100,000 to my Mum, 100,000 to my Dad, 100,000 each to each of my Nans, 100,000 to my brother, 100, 000 to my mother-in-law, and give the remaining 400,000 to charity.
