    I probably would because I suck at keeping my own secrets.

    I don't think it would be wise to tell everyone though. I guess it'd be pretty obvious by my spending habits though...

    Definitely not. I have seen what happens to families and friendships and its not worth it. If I want to share the money I would just do it in a way that wasn't suspicious.

    We won about 400k about 4 years ago (we were in a syndicate and that was our share) we told close friends and close family. I paid my parents mortgage and money towards a car, gave brother and sisters money about 9k, gave nephews and nieces money, gave DH's brother money, bought DH's sister a new pram that she wanted, paid for Paul's family to stay over at our wedding venue. We gave our best friends some money (DH's best friend had a new laptop as he had been talking about getting one for ages! And my best friend had the money towards a holiday) there was also blots of treats and bits and bobs here and there as well as paying towards out wedding. DH got a new car, I paid off my student debts etc. It helped to pay for our move to Australia and we had about 200k left which we used for our deposit on our house.

    Since giving family money etc I have also lent them extra money (at least 9k each) which they are slowly paying back. I know if it was my sister who had won she wouldn't have given us anything (she has told me this and has told me how jealous she was and said why you and not me!)

    I wouldn't change it as I know I have helped them when they have really struggled and I would like to think if it had happened to them then they would do the same.

    Nope, no one (besides DF). I love my family but they're all money hungry and we would be constantly asked for money, or be expected to buy things for everyone all the time.

    I'd say someone in DF's family passed and left enough money to pay our credit card debts (they're high) which is why we can all of a sudden afford things.

    ETA: I'm happy to buy my family things, help out financially and pay for outings, but I don't want it to be expected or assumed of me just because we won the lottery.
