“That is a lot of money, but I would just set all my friends and family up for a long time. Give money to the church, and I would give money to anyone who needed it, says Andrea Salzer.
Even children have ideas on what their parents should buy if they won the mega millions like Salzer’s daughter, Addison, “probably a new house. I like my house, but I think it would be fun to live on a hobby farm, but nowadays it is kinda hard to find those that are super dupper expensive.
Lenny DeMann told us that he would share some on the money within his family to start, “Definitely spend it on my family. My kids, grandkids. I would buy a house for them all and pay it off.”
Some people would use the money to pay off some of their debts.
“I would pay off my student loans, which is not that much right now, and I would buy a house and pay it off and make it my dream house on a lake,” Alexys Lewis said.
