Keep some, make lots of other people smaller percentage winners, and hope others don't figure out who got the most.

I'm in. Every one that posts in this thread is on the hook for a ticket, and has to split their winnings. Deal?

So should be buy Ruben and Couch pants, or can we assume they'll buy their own with the winnings? Cuz, I'm willing to send their share in the pants' pockets....

I'd build a high-rise and live in the penthouse--indoor 1-mile Velodrome, of course, swimming pool and a big garden up on the roof...simple stuff like that.

Oh, yeah, and buy the Bengals and win the Super Bowl.

How about giving a bike to every kid in Haiti?

I would buy 1993 BRG Range Rover. Then spend the other $499,998 keeping it running.

Everyone in my family would be debt free. Sons and nieces and nephews college paid for. Immediate tithe to the charity, not all one place. After that, time would tell. Would most likely try to get a job at a bike shop or open my own horticulture related business. Lots of travel.

Set aside enough for some cheap hookers and expensive drugs, then give away the rest as fast as I could. Maybe get a bike or three so the hookers can get home.

I'd buy like 5 family members and 5 good friends nice but modest homes, buy a crap ton of land out west, and a classic car dealership and shop... start up a few businesses, set aside a trust for my niece, and then live the good life. Lots of drugs too, of course.

I didn't win
If I had won would have kept $10 million for myself. The rest of the money would have gone into a scholarship fund and to charity. The fanciest thing I'd buy with that $10 million would be a ~$10,000 Moots bicycle and to pay the remaining $27,000 I owe on the house.
