hire a good tax attorney and accountant
depending on the size of the winnings, wait a couple of months before claiming it, and when we do, the wife could quit her job/retire.
I'd work through the rest of this year to lock in my retirement plan with current employer and then I would retire.
I'd buy a piece of property in a place where the wife and I want to relocate.
once retired, I'd then have free time to fix up the current house and sell it.
pay off my wife's car, and buy me a new p/u truck
pay off my daughter's house
build a new, smaller home for the wife and I on the earlier-mentioned piece of land.
do volunteer work. golf. buy a 4-wheeler and ride it. travel a little bit.

$4 Million is my number.

1/2 in taxes leaves you with $2 million.

$1 million in a 4% yield account leaves me with $40,000/year for living expenses.

$1 million to buy house, land, toys, pretty much everything simple I've ever wanted, and do some nice stuff for others.

Anything past that would probably pay to help out others. And more fun for me

If it was a lot, say $50 mil or so, then there is a company I would buy just to fire the fucking manager, then as soon as he was gone I would find out where he went, then buy that company and fire his ass again. I'd probably keep doing that until he was left sweeping up cig butts and used needles behind a liquor store in south Dallas for $6 an hour. Then I would leave him alone.

it would take a reasonable win just to pay off our debts!
but im not greedy, even that would be a huge weight off our shoulders and give us a lot of choices we didnt have before. i dont love my job but i see too many guys at work who retire and suddenly have a lot of time on their hands and bore themselves to death, i dont want to end up like that i'd have to have something to do.

BUT, if we are going into the realms of 'what if...',

travelling would be good. ive got no use for a huge 'look at me' mansion but a decent size house with a decent plot of land is on the cards, and a huge garage/workshop full of boys toys wood and metalworking machinery, and a space big enough for the bike/car/van/trailer projects and anything else i feel like doing.

I'd setup trust funds for the parents so they don't have to spend the rest of their days working. I'd set one up for my son to go to college but I don't think I'd set him up. There's value to living life.

I'd rebuild my house and buy a few rental units and spend more time volunteering and travelling.

Of course I'd buy some cool toys but wouldn't go all wild with the hookers and blow.

Fire him once and get someone to say he BFed a horse, you would only have to fire him once.

I discussed it at home with my wife, as probably all of us do
Turned out we don't really need to buy that much, but we would spend on services and experiences we can't afford. If we are talking really big money, I would try to do something good for motorcycling- commissioning a safety study or lobbying for legal lane splitting.

Hmm...

Can't lie: I would buy an acre or two of land. I have little use for a gigantic house, since I am by myself. A nice 3 bay garage with a loft would do nicely.

There is a local free health clinic that our church is partnering with, and a local orphan relief network that always needs more funds/donations.

My parents would become MUCH more comfortable in their retirement.
My siblings would be given enough to become debt free.

I'd probably keep working, but roll the salary back to the church who employs me. 40 hours a week instead of 55 would be a nice vacation, almost!

If I didn't continue to work, I'd probably greatly increase my work as a volunteer Guardian Ad Litem.

I might get extravagent and buy a Husky TR650
I still wouldn't repaint or wash the KLR...
