Since the Powerball is up to $1.5 Billion.

You start the game with a full pot of luck and an empty pot of experience. The object is to fill the pot of experience before you empty the pot of luck.

The very first 5 things I would do after realizing I have won the lottery are the following.

1. Get on my knees and pray to God (Do the rosary)
2. Tell my family (Closest Members)
3. Tell my family not to tell anyone
4. Take my family to church to pray
5. Visit passed away family members

The very first 5 things I would buy are the following.

1. Dinner for my family
2. Health insurance for my family
3. Stihl ms661rcm chainsaw for my father
4. New set of motorcycle tires
5. Nothing specific. Maybe groceries or gas. Basically go back to living my normal life.

I would have said a house with a big garage, but hell... 1.5 Billion?!

I would prob. buy a huge garage with a house attached!!! Hahahahahaha

With that kind of money I would do as VR46 did and make my own dirt track and also a speed track too... and throw some hell parties, you know, with the usual... Girls, blow, midgets in monocicles, stunts in bikes, a swimming pool full of strawberry jello and a huge ball pit for adults!

Because I want the car regardless of how much money I have. I would have other cars (Porsche GT3RS) but I just like the new Focus RS.

If you want a better fantasy answer, I would buy ALL of the new Focus RS so that way it way I could crush most of them with a monster truck and make it a rare vehicle. Save a few for parts cars when I crash mine trying to be a rally hero on my trillion acre farm with a private rally course and race track.

But I didn't win so I'm gonna keep grinding out paychecks until I have enough to afford just one.

You're thinking small ball my boy. 1.5 billion. After taxes if you get 800million, put that in the most conservative wealth management channels for something like an annual 2% return. That's $16million a year without even touching the original $800mil. Think about that. Spend $200 at the titty bar? No, if that's your thing this is how you do it. You call up the MGM Grand in Vegas & let them know you just won the powerball and intend to celebrate. Reserve the penthouse/presidential/big baller suite. Whichever one has it's own helicopter pad so you don't have to deal with traffic and going up the elevator from the airport. Have them send their jet to your location to pick up you and your friends. Have them set you up with your own concierge to set up your party. Titty bar? You don't go to the titty bar. The titty bar now comes to you. Have your handler comb the local Vegas strip clubs for their top performers and book them for your private event. Have them also sort out DJ's, bartenders, masseuses, midgets wrestlers, or whatever else you think you need there for your party. Even if you blow a million on this party that's like you saying you'll buy beer & pizza for you and a couple friends now. You can handle it. After the party (if you live) then go back to your life & figure how you'll live your real new life. Have a good memory of that crazy night in crazy world (or week) but don't live in crazy world.

Powerballs at like 5 or 6PM my time. By the time I got done screaming and calling family. It'll be seven I would only be able to hit the local titty bar that night. Then im going to hiring you to set the rest of the fun up haha.

The money would kill me, no doubt unless i had an intervention before that.
