If I had a billion dollars…

January 13, 2016


It’s the subject of the week for the United States. What would you do if you won the lottery? With the Powerball jackpot prize currently at 1.5 Billion dollars, and increasing every hour as more and more people rush to buy their tickets (hey, someone has to win, right?!) we’ve all caught ourselves dreaming about what we would do if we had the winning ticket. So, what would the Turbine Digital team do if they won?


“Give 999 million to charities that I am passionate about. Build up my personal mental health ministry The rest save and pay off debt!”


“If I had to make a list:

  1. Tithe, donate 20% (church, non-profits)
  2. Create non-profit charitable fund
  3. $250,000 Education Fund for Kids
  4. Gift $1 million to pay off any outstanding family member debt
  5. Set up family Trust/invest with remaining
  6. Travel!!!”


“We would take the cash payout of 930 Million Dollars! Holy cow that is a ton of money! Because I am too stingy to ever take a real vacation (occupational hazard) we would take a vacation. I would pay off our debt, invest a large majority, start a charitable foundation and purchase a house for each of my siblings and mother.”


“Pay off my student loans of course! Buy a modest house with a nice backyard for my dog to run around in. Fix my Grandmothers house up in Hawaii, hello vacation home. Take a vacation TO Hawaii and eat all my favorite foods. Spoil my loved ones since I’m lucky they put up with me. I’d probably buy some rental properties so I could keep making money, but then focus on a retirement home for dogs and cats whose owners have passed away.”

What would you do if you won the jackpot?
