Donate half, deposit half, then spend according to needs.

Nothing good ever came out of 5 houses and 10 cars.



Dump it in my bank account and live off the interest.



wait and invest it wisely... the government takes so much in tax already that im hardly just going to hand over anymore of it to even more bums.

Give some to my local RSPCA and PDSA and Local Cat Charity.

Give some to family, then invest the rest in businesses

Use some to start a game studio with my team, instead of taking out a state loan lol. travel the world. Adopt some kids and give some money to charity. I would buy alot of stuff but i doubt it would come up to alot. Though most this stuff i will do without being rich it just speeds up the process.

You'd need to win the euro millions to comfortably do that!



 

First purchase is a house. I'd then invite my friends to live in the house with me else I'd be bored out of my mind and lonely. I'd then go into house rental by buying up less properties outright (as assets) and renting them out. While leaving enough to live of interest comfortably.

I would give some to charity. If I had kids, I'm make sure they valued money buy never telling them that I'm filthy rich but giving them a comfortable life style, making them work for a living.

Once I perish, all is either going to the ones I love or charity. Kids will have to earn that love.



Hmm, pie.

would spend it all as fast as i can... i dont know how longer will i live, so the smart thing is to spend it while i am still alive and kicking... would spend it in various things, charity included, but mostly in high tech s**t and lots of cars to ride in my personal race track in the back yard of my house!

This. And preferably live off the interest in a cheap country like Thailand, the Phillipines or Colombia.
