jackpot will be drawn tomorrow. That is some serious peso's!

$$ 540 MILLION $$- That's 1/2 a billion dollars!:bouncy:

What would you do with that amont if you won it? I know I would be looking at hunting land in a few states, and were talking thousands of acres in some cases. A second home in warm weather(Hawaii):biggrin: for those cold Jan-Feb Months.

New "Toys" for my hunting and fishing excursions, and being a lover of fast cars, especially old classic muscle cars- I see a few new additions there-along with a heated garage.;)

How many on here, if they won, would be giving their boss the finger as they walked out the door for the last time?:coolgleamA:

I probably haven't bought a ticket in 10 years, but I did today. If I win I'll keep farming till it's gone.

improve the deer camp (wn)by buying some land near the wnf...build a very nice place for people to come to and enjoy the outdoors and all the land they want to roam on whether it be hiking,hunting camping etc...and of course at no charge...:D

Probably a top of the line fishing boat on Erie, and one on Cumberland. Nice cabin somewhere with a big chunk-o-land around it.
Lots of charity work.;)

I think my boss would just have to figure it our on his own..."I wonder why he hasn't been in lately!"

That is so much money that it'd be virtually impossible to spend it.but,I would travel to every place around the world that i've ever thought of seeing.My familys' plces of origin in Ireland,the Holy land,some of the battle sites from where my Father was in the 2nd world war,A safari trip to South Africa,And anywhere else I could think of.A huge ranch in Montana for hunting & fishing with a couple of guest houses for my friends.
After that there would be some charities and people I know who would get some deserved help.
I'm not gonna do any real planning yet though!!!

Per LA times it's now at 640 Mill!

I'd buy a couple thousand acres of grouse woods and a nice place on a trout stream. :)

Its over $600M.

I definitely will go with numerous spots so I can move around with the seasons. There are some cheap condos on the LV strip. central location for western hunting.

You'll be able to buy just about any condo with this jackpot-cheap ones won't even be looked at:biggrin:

$640+ is what they are saying and everybody is buying...odds of winning is 1 in 176 million:whistle::irked:

Well I obviously did not win but the plan was pay off my house and my dads house. After that I was back and forth between a small ranch in montana or a nice cabin in alaska lol. Oh well, there is always next time hahaha
