Mega Millions Lottery At $500 Million: What Would You Do With It?

What would you do if you won all that cash? Tell us in the comments.

Although the odds of a Cranberry resident hitting the lottery are probably something like one in a billion, that doesn’t stop us from dreaming.

In case you haven’t heard, the Mega Millions jackpot is up to $500 million. That’s half a billion dollars or—as I like to call it—set-for-life dollars.

If you won, what would you do with all that money?

I’d pay off my debts (mortgage, school loans, credit cards, etc.) and my loved ones’ debts—maybe even some readers’ debts!—and book a nice, long vacation to Hawaii. Have you even been to Hawaii? It’s gorgeous!

I can fantasize, right?

So tell me, what would you do if you won this giant pile of cash. Take a swim in it a la Scrooge McDuck? Go on a cruise … or maybe buy the cruise ship?

Share your champagne wishes and caviar dreams in the comment section. If we get lots of good suggestions, we'll feature them in an article on Friday.

After I partied like a rock star for a few days...or weeks....there would be some serious philanthropy.
