12 Ridiculous Things to Do if You Win the LotteryJill Layton

Money can’t buy happiness, but it sure can buy a whole lot of other things! The odds of winning the lottery are not in our favor. Millions and millions of lottery tickets are sold every day, which make our chances of winning big, super small. Smaller than super small, actually, but someone’s gotta win! If that someone were to be you, what would you do with your hundreds of millions of dollars?

Here’s a list of some ridiculous things to do if you win big:

1. Travel to space.

If you’re like me, you’ve always dreamed about going to space. Now, for only $250,000, you can secure yourself a spot on Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic spaceship, making you officially an astronaut, or at least a pretend one for the day.

2. Start your own sports team.

But not the local adult league that everyone at work is forced to join. An actual legit sports team, like the Yankees or the Colts, but maybe name it something fun like the Unicorns or the Pretzels, just because you can.

3. Buy a plane and fly around the world.

Go to every place you’ve ever wanted to visit. Maybe even the places you never wanted to visit, just to keep an open mind about things.

4. Build a casino in Las Vegas and name it after yourself.

Mainly so conversations around the world could go like this, “Hey guys, wanna go to Vegas for the weekend?” “Sure, where should we stay?” “The Jill.” Of course, you’d insert your name, not mine.

5. Pay for college.

Give money to every child in your city (or country, depending on how many millions you win) that received above a certain GPA, but can’t afford to go to college.

6. Buy a private island.

And invite everyone you know (the ones you like) to vacation there. Of course, you’ll need to hire someone to do the scheduling. If there are too many people there at once, it just turns into an island. Not a private island.

7. Buy a snow machine and every year give a new city a white Christmas.

Of course you should choose cities with warm climates, or else it’d probably be an angry and snowed-in Christmas for everyone.

8. Build a water slide inside your home.

Because why not? Warning: you will get wet.

9. Put an ATM in your kitchen.

When you have a lot of money, it’s easy to spend a lot of money. So, why not have an all-access pass to your money? NBA player, DeShawn Stevenson did it, so it’s definitely possible.

  1. You had me at the Unicorns and the water slide.

    (And, obviously, paying college… as a teacher, it’s a must!)

  2. I will bookmark this to remember for later.
