I'd buy a house, probably around 100k or so, get my wife her dream car, get myself a few old classics to lovingly restore over the rest of my natural life, and chill the f### out!

A massive shop/garage would have to go with the resto projects, well equipped of course.

The rest, I'd invest it and watch it grow.

I would invest a few hundred thousand in my property. Save the rest.

Part of my investment would be a 5000 square foot shop with an indoor shooting range and two or three car lifts to work on my projects..... Set up the underground bunker. all of that.

Id still come to work and be an ******* to everyone and try and get fired lol

I'd put about $1,000,000 into property, house, motorized toys and guns. The rest I would invest and live off the interest.

That would be a problem for me seeing as I am self employed.

I'd spend a few tens of thousands on research of accounting firms and when I found the one, I'd have them manage and invest the rest and live off the interest/investment income.

Edited to add: There'd be a purchase I'd make first, though. My dream property/ranch in eastern Texas. That's where I'm going to retire so that might take around a million to finance.

7 mil. OK, take the payout (at our age do you think you'll collect 20 years?), that cuts it down to about 1/2. So now you have 3.5 mil. I don't know the tax rates on gambling, but I think you'd end up with around $2.5 mil.
Once upon a time, I had all the figures worked out, but now I'm not worried about it.
But, what would I do?

1 Set my two kids up with 500k trust funds. Untouchable until they're 35 years old.

2 Give my sister 500k, just because. She's always been there for me.

3 Buy myself a new car and do a bit of travelling in the US. I'm used to living on the road, and can do it affordably.
