What is the #1 thing Americans say they will do if they score the $900 Million Mega Millions Jackpot?
The answer: Share with others
The jackpot for the Mega Millions lottery has hit $900 million, the second-largest in U.S. history (the highest ever was a Powerball in 2016, which hit $1.59 billion). The drawing takes place tomorrow. So what do Americans say they’ll do if they win that prize? TheNo. 1 answer: Share the prize with others (33% of Americans said this was the top thing they’d do), followed by saving/investing the money for the future (21%) and quitting their jobs (9%), according to a survey of 1,100 people released this month by financial firm TD Ameritrade. Those answers depend on age though: Millennials, for example, put their top answers as save/invest for the future and get out of debt (tied for the No. 1 spot), followed closely by quit their jobs. Sharing the money with others only ranked sixth for them).
