  • Video: How would you spend winnings?

 

Igor Dimovski, 40, Streamwood

That's a crazy amount. Even if you spent all of it on crazy stuff, there's still a bunch left over. I don't know that I could spend it all in my lifetime. I'd give 70 percent to charity and the rest I'd spend it and take care of my family.

Cindy O'Neal, 49, Schaumburg

I would go to Africa and build some shelters and help feed the hungry. I'd try to end world hunger. And I'd buy a wheatgrass machine for myself so I didn't have to spend $7 a day at Jamba Juice.

Colby Walksler, 28, Wheaton

Half of it I'd invest, but I'm not sure in what these days. Then I'd open a performing arts school for youth and then I'd go check out an island or two.

Maureen Jouhet, 39, Park Ridge

I would probably buy a house for everyone in my family and a giant island for all of us. And I would buy my husband a Maserati.

April Samuelson, 26, Chicago

I'd buy one of those Queen Anne houses downtown, a condo in Hawaii and a 1950s Corvette.

Bryan Husch, 44, Fox Lake

Live happily, that would be definite, for sure. My wife and I would be traveling a lot. All the kids would be set for college and houses and everything they ever needed. I'd buy a 40-foot boat. I'd let my wife name it.

Blake Johnson, 10, Arlington Heights

Get a huge house with a big basement so then I can play sports and stuff in there. I'd have a whole soccer field.

Tom Krengiel, 60, Elk Grove Village

I would definitely make life easier for my immediate family and probably promote goodwill and good health for my community.
