What Would You Do If You Won the Lottery? – Survey of the Day
The sixth biggest jackpot in the history of the United States was given away last month when an 81 year old woman from Rhode Island won the $336.4 million Powerball jackpot. She choose to take a lump sum, so she received $210 million. The down to earth family oriented woman said she planned a vacation first, and then she’ll continue to focus on her family and helping people. If you won the lottery, what would you do with the money?
The odds of winning were tiny, about 1 in 175 million. White didn’t believe she had won after hearing the numbers 1-10-37-52-57-11 on TV. After checking the Internet, “we still didn’t believe it,” she said. “We turned off the computer and turned it back on and went back to the website, and my numbers were still there,” White said. “We hugged each other and jumped up and down screaming.”
White is still playing the lottery, and winning, by the way. Last week, she won $80 in a scratch-off game.
To me, it is tough to wrap my mind around what I would do with THAT much money, but I am sure I could figure out to do with most of it.
