The Powerball is over 700 million. The Mega Millions is over 800 million. While we all know what we would do if we won, (not the least of which is buying that Lamborghini), CNBC shared a list of things you should do first, including:

  • Put your emotions aside and get a team of financial experts and lawyers.
  • Put the ticket in a safe place, like a safety deposit box at the bank. Sock drawer is a terrible place for it. So is your wallet.
  • Don’t run and blab to everyone. Keep a low profile for awhile to avoid a lot of unwanted attention.
  • Prepare for taxes.
  • Set up a charity foundation.

After you’re done with all that then, yeah, go get your Lambo.
