    I must agree that most people would pay off their parents' mortgage(s)

    And I would DEFINITELY take a really expensive luxurious holiday!

    I would give some to charity tbh, but it wouldnt be my very first thought

    i would give some to charity (animal ones)
    You'd give money to animal charities when thousands of people are homeless and dying in Haiti, when there's famine in Darfur and there's persecution in Myanmar?

    If I won a couple of millions, I would spend it on educating myself, getting a pilot's license, race car license, all different car/truck/motorcycle licenses, divers license, and so forth.

    Then I'd go travelling, like getting a couple of SUVs with mates and family and go across Africa, Russia, South America.

    So fun-education, and experiences. I'd rather that than hanging around brats on an expensive beach and driving a red Ferrari with a plastic boobed gf. I would last just as long as the money... I'd need an insane amount

    Me: Chuck a load in some form of untouchable bank account (If that's possible LOL!) to pay off student debts/some spare cash is nice. Go on holiday/s, buy a reasonable car ect.
    'Rents: Pay off house, make it a bit more mum friendly (She has major back problems..), send them on a well deserved holiday!
    Sister + partner: Pay off debts/help them buy house. Give my neices and nephew some money to keep for when they're older.
    Bro + partner: Help him sort out his house (It's an old victorian place...) and send them on a holiday.
    Bf: Two tickets (for him + his faja) in the best seats in the house at Anfield for a BIG champs. league game or tickets of final. Possibly buy him his stupid Honda Civic :laugh: Oh, and holiday/s!
    Bf's family: Dunno, but i'd take them out for a lovely lovely meal at least - as I owe his mum so much while he's been away

    *Looks back* I've obviously planned to win big...
    Lol I know I worked out Id need at least £5,050,000 to do everything I want to do!

    Family and extended family (family friends and children who are family) - £1m each for my parents, £250,000 each for mortgages/houses etc. and £50k each for children/pensions/weddings, £5k each for the best holiday ever
    Me - £25k for any study I want to do, £250k for a house, £10k for a car, £1m for the Christmas House (were all over the place, theres tens of us, we need a huge house for fantastic family christmas') £5k for best holiday ever

    Anyone bought a euromillions ticket for tonight? don't forget, when the jackpot is the lowest, you have a higher chance of winning the 1M raffle!!
    Of course, every week. Gave up on the Bradford University's winning system though - far too expensive

    Me: Go on holiday to Canada, put enough aside for student debts and costs of doing an MSc and PhD [with living expenses], put at least half of it in an ethical wealth management fund to keep generating enough money for me to live off of each year, get some nice clothes, components for an incredible new computer and an enormous 3D TV, get my teeth fixed [only thing I hate the NHS for is how crappy their dentists are]
    Brother: £50K - enough to do whatever he wants to do at uni and take it to PhD level if he wants to, probably with a fair bit left over.,
    Mum & Dad: Buy a cottage in Dorset, pay off their mortgage and loan, buy them a first-class world cruise
    Friends: Take my uni friends on holiday to Canada with me, take my old school friends on a trip to New Zealand with me, give them enough money to pay off their student debts for their first degree, £10K each to go do whatever the hell they want.
    Nan & Grandad: Take them on a trip to California to go see relatives there, give them £50K hard cash
    Grandad (paternal): Give him enough money to buy a nice retirement cottage in a village somewhere.
    Godson (cousin): Set up a trust fund worth £100,000 minimum for him to inherit upon completion of university studies [he's only a toddler now, but I want what's best for him]
    Charity: donate £100,000 to the RSPB.
    Politics: donate £100,000 to the Lib Dems.

    That's in order of precedence - stuff at the bottom will only be looked at if it doesn't interfere with stuff at the top.

    That's exactly why I donate to animal charities, because the majority have this very perspective...as a result most are helping human related charities and animal charities don't get much. It's only worthwile donating to charities that need it and could really do with your help. If the majority are donating to people and not enough is being done for animal charities then they're the ones that need it more. The minute not enough is being done for people, they'll definately be my priority.

    Firstly, cancel student finance loans, but still take the grants/scholarships... no point not taking what i'm owed...
    Then pay off Parents mortgage, least i could do.
    Pay off remaining finance on brother's car saving him ~£100 a month.
    And finance his 4th year law conversion that's gonna cost him ~£10k.
    Start looking near Sussex uni for nice houses with at least a double garage for my car and bikes...
    Maybe buy a 5th motorbike?Probably not, i got enough already...
    Waste ~£3,000 on a stupidly top of the line computer that will run all latest games/and all new games for a year or two brilliantly.

    Invest the rest for my future...

    May sponsor a motorcycle team i know that have a dedicated workforce, including me when i can spare the time, but are just lacking proper funding...

    Pay off my debts and those of my family/friends. Put some in a savings account, invest some, maybe donate some to charity and just spend the rest. Go travelling probably, buy a new car, just the usual stuff.
