It is difficult the way it is to win the lottery that those people did, nonetheless they have managed to lose it all and end up worse then before winning that lottery. If you win the lottery, make sure to get a financial advisor and be smart about your winnings. Winning the lottery can be exciting and fun and can change your life for the better, as long as you handle it well!

First thing I would do is call my lawyer and get
legal issues taken care of first.I would pay all of
our bills off,build a cabin in the country,buy my hubby
a new truck,tell the kids' after we spent it all! If the kids'
find out first,it's all gone before the ink is dry on the paperwork.

Is that million before or after taxes?
Buy a nice plot of land somewhere out of the way, build a decent cabin, stock with supplies, discretely buy gold bullion with the rest and bury it.

$250,00 go in a safe place that yields steady interest. It's not to be touched for five to ten years (I'm 20).
$83,333 go towards a checking savings account
$83,333 go towards a roth IRA
$27,777 go towards carefully chosen stocks and investments
$27,777 go towards various living expenses
$20,833 go towards charity
$6,944 go towards a personal shopping spree for nice suits, clothing, and w/e.
I think I would be ok with 1mill tax free.
A guy can dream, can't he?

Buttonwood Caye in the Caribbean, already has a shack, a small white beach and a serviceable dock to park your boat and seaplane. Was the cheapest I could find close to your specifications. Will cost you $750,000 US. Brand New 2011 Centaur Centaur 2 Amphibious Seaplane will cost you $170,000, leaves you $80,000 for the boat and the bar. Doesn't leave much for fixing up the beach shack and paying for your existence once your on the island. Suppose it could be a holiday set-up so you fly in for vacation. You would need a good job though. The only reason I costed this out because everything you said is probably what I would do, minus the sea plane as I don’t know how to fly. Now if I could win more then $1000,000, say $2000,000 I suppose I could learnedit on 10-6-2011 by AusiAnarchist because: (no reason given)
