Man did they need it but they are going to spend it all wrong!

They were from Thurder Bay, he was un-employed and she was a telemarketer. They flew for the first time to Toronto to cash it in. When they were asked what they were going to do they said maybe buy a new house, car, and a trip to Florida!

bullshit

If it was me:

New average size condo or house in Toronto (possibly).
A long ass vacation to several different locations around the world.
Then invest, invest, invest, to become richer!
And of course I would have to throw one bomb as party!

How about yourself?

Keep in mind a house in thunder bay, a neon and a trip to Ft. Lauderdale for 7 days will only set them back about 80K.

Why is it when lottery winners go for their photo op, they're dressed like slobs?

You've just won millions, you might want to ditch the ballcap and sweatpants!

If I won I'd be showing up in a top hat and coattails....I realize this wouldn't exactly endear me to the general population, but with all them millions, what would I care?
 
- a condo at harbour square
- a summer car (ferrari/xjsc)
- a winter car (bmw something or other or suv)
- 1.5 x 2 carat diamond earings.
- a club med trip for me and all my friends (several times)
- invest the rest

Three words:

House, heroin, pillows.

BBB.

..and enough to pay the heating/electricity bills. A warm junkie's a happy junkie.

..well, a HIGH junkie is a happy junkie.

Well first of all, the Lotto Office is in my back yard, so if I won, I'd walk to the office butt naked, get my check... go to my bank accross the street and deposit it... butt naked... and then walk down Bloor and go to the Giorgio Armani store and get dressed.

Then, I'd take a cab to Front and Bathurst, to the Lamborghini Dealership and pick myself a Nice little Diablo sr and take that for a spin while ordering an All Inclusive Trip arround the world on my Cell Phone.

When I get off the phone, I'll drop by the LakeShore Condo's and get myself the sickest PentHouse... and then head to Leons, the Sony Store, and the Bay to Furnish my new Penthouse.

Then I'd go to the Eatons Center to get my New Wardrobe and possibly walk down queen street and find some clubwear so I have something cool to wear for tonight. While talking on the phone with the girl of my dreams and inviting her out to the most posh restaurant in Toronto.

Anywho... You get the Picture, I'll prolly have 2 million spend in 1 day.

When the team of scientists/monkeys hammer out the flying car, I'll have made in the shape of an F1 car with Michael Schumacher's head as the hood ornament. Just for you.

12.5 Million eh?

- 2 level Penthouse condo in downtown TO
- Nice car. Nothing crazy, probably a nice high end Jetta or something
- TV better than Wills ;)
- give some to parents and brother

The rest I'd invest. Even a decent guaranteed interest GIC (5%) on 10 million would earn you 500k a year. PLENTY to live off of.

The OLGC has to give out about 50% of what it takes in as prize money. So even after handing out the 12.5 million, they have tons left over from previous weeks that they still have to unload.

They do this a few times a year (it will sit at a low amount for a while and they stockpile the revenue) to have a few weeks of BIG payouts to keep up interest in it.

I would use the millions to fund ridiculous legal pursuits.
Like that fat chick who sued air canada for charging her for two seats. I would subsidize the legal fees and force them to take it a step further and require that air canada provide a plane specifically for people who require two seats. It would redefine Jumbo Jets as we know them!

I would pay my way to San Fran to go to the FIDM (Fashion Institute for Design and Merchandising) coz its 60,000 american a year so we need a lotto win here.

Then I would buy a small condo in Manhattan and rent it out until I graduate and move there.

I would have my dad invest my money into various stocks and I'd give each of my friends $50,000 for whatever they want as long as they never ask me for money again.

I think I'd also buy a house a very big house in the country in england. Id have a private Ash, Radiohead, Coldplay, Travis festival in my back yard (fully equiped with foot and mouth mats). Id rent that to people too.

I would also invest alot of money into Stem Cell reasearch in a country that would allow it. And Id build the homeless people a dorm sort of building to maybe have some programs to help them get back on their feet.
