    I know its a question that's probably been asked many times, but what would you do? I just found out my neighbor from my hometown won the lotto, I think it was around 2 million. I would of thought maybe she'd buy a bigger house or go on holiday, but my sister said she hasn't really done anything with it.

    I wouldn't do much with it neither, at first.

    I'm not one for going around splashing cash and am very economical, some would say boring. I'd start brainstorming investment ideas and attempt to build an income. Only then would I start flaunting the dough :cool:

    It depends on the amount, if it's big enough then I'd buy a house and put the rest in the bank just in case. Wouldn't want to waste all the money just on, e.g. holidays and later when I'll really need money, just think how stupid I was wasting money..

    1. Travel the world; especially developing countries and set up communities to be independent with schools, hospitals, emergency services etc. Invest to make them sustainable.

    2. Give to charity; starting with research based ones.

    3. Set up my own apprentice investing in new and original ideas just to see what will happen; even if one dream comes true then it is worth it.

    And so much more! All depends on how much I win

    Depends how much. 2 million isn't really that much, it can be gone extremely quickly, if you're not careful with it.

    I would spend some, invest some, save some, give some away and travel.

    (Sorry about the excessive use of the word "some")

    Give some to my family, friends and charity and then start a business.

    Oh, and I'd definitely be entering most of the world's biggest poker tournaments.

    Invest a lot of it.

    Improvements for my family, chairty, improvements for myself. I'd strive for that order but I can't promise it.

    Spend a bit there and then, stupidly expensive bottle of whisky, small cottage in the lake district. Beer.

    But most of it I'd look to invest in something that would give a good return. Possibly a business idea, but not sure. I wouldn't rush into anything (apart from an initial spending spree of maybe half a million :p: )
