What would you do with your identity if you won the lottery?

Well maybe don’t exactly hate gambling or disagree with gambling, it’s just don’t you think winning 700 million dollars cash would just change all of your friends and people around you? You’d have people trying to scam you and take advantage of your winning money probably everyday??? What do you think? If you won the lottery in your state, would you want the whole state knowing you have all that money on you?

Help us keep this site organized and clean. Thanks!

  • After uncle sam robbed me Id still take home 400 million. Id either be really happy or really miserable. I cant see myself not working and relaxing all day. Id probably go off the deep end and die of aids or a drug overdose or something. It probably wouldnt be a good thing to have all that money. The bible says its hard for a rich man to get to heaven and thats probably true if heaven exists

  • I'd keep my wealth a secret.

  • Probably hire some people to create trusts. People I love shall receive money from a trust. Then I would buy land, lots of land in my country. Buy some real estate in Mauritius. Buy myself a Jeep, why a Jeep? Well, because here is not the place to buy and drive Lamborghinis or Teslas or anything real fancy.
    Then I would donate to two feminist organisation I'm part of and probably help them built shelters for battered women.

  • I'd pay people absurd amounts of money to do stupid things. Like $15,000 to someone if they can go a solid 7 days without taking a shit

  • I'd probably suit myself up with the basic necessities while building my dream castle. Get a normal single family house. Raise kids, build my castle with my substantial free time

  • I dont have many people in my life but those I have would never try to take advantage of my money. They're not too concerned about money because I dont associate with shallow/materialistic folks.
    Anyone who would try to get money from me i'd just cut off. I don't have a problem doing that. I would gladly share some money with my close family members though, but not with friends beyond taking the bill if we go out to do something special but not always. I'd save a large amount of the money.

  • The key is to not let people know that you won a huge lottery.

    Most big lottery winners create some kind of LLC, Trust, or other legal entity that actually claims the prize. That way your name stays out of the public records.

    They do often move, and their new neighbors will not notice that their lifestyle has improved from before.

    It's rare for people to change their name and identification.

  • I would tell everyone I know that I "inherited some money" as an excuse for why I retired immediately, bought a house, drive an expensive car (custom-made so it looks like a regular car from the outside), and buy all the most expensive tech. "Don't worry about it, I inherited a lot of money from my... uhh... great... grandmother. Yeah. She skipped her own kids, skipped their kids, and gave all her money to *me*." People might try to jack me for a lottery win, but no one cares about inheritance money. If they keep asking later, I'll make up a random side gig.

    The word "lottery" will be scrubbed from my lexicon on religious grounds.

  • I’d want them to know alright. The best revenge is massive success

  • I'd keep my wealth hidden. I wouldn't start buying hypercars, mansions and yachts... I'd just carry on with life, but slowly invest in my businesses, work on getting back home, start a new business there, obviously buy a few new cars, cause it's me and a boat, but nothing too over the top. I'll also start carrying a concealed gun. Gonna have to get a permit for that in Bulgaria... Concealed carry requires extra stuff in Europe.

  • Probably move and change my name because there'd probly be a million old friends and relatives coming out of the woodwork.
