I would tell people I couldn't avoid telling (family and close friends who visit me), but I would downplay how much I won. I'd tell them I won 'enough to buy my dream house plus a bit extra for investment'. I'd give money to my siblings too.

I would tell close family but that's all.. I would also buy 10+ houses, renovate them and make them homeless shelters where there is are social workers for each house, a chef and ongoing medical care. They wouldn't pay anything to live there, but they would have to clean themselves up and start to study or find work and boost their self esteem. I would also fund orphanges overseas. I would also set my kids up with a house of their choice plus I would travel whilst houses being renovated.

I would tell family and close friends. Not sure I'd disclose the exact amount though.
I would make sure we set ourselves up, then financially assist our parents if possible. I'd help my parents completely pay off their house (they already live in their 'dream home') and buy a place for MIL who is retired and still rents.
If there's still loads of money left over I'm sure we'd gift money to our siblings and treat our friends to some awesome experiences like travel.

I wouldn't tell anyone. But I wouldn't go and spend it on anything overly extravagant, so they wouldn't know. I would rather keep the money invested so I could care for my parents and mil in the future, than give them money now and have nothing for their future. Cos my mil would blow it on nothing in less than a minute!
I'd set up trust account ya for the kids. Put them in good schools. Save for an early retirement!

I'd buy more farmland for us to ensure income in the future, then build a decent house on it. I'd pay a set amount of all brothers/bil's mortgages and put money in trust for their children. Dad I would try and buy a bush block for but I doubt he would take it - maybe I buy it in my name and let him use it. I would buy a house and 'rent' it to my mum.
I don't know what I would do for mil/fil, they have everything already.
Anything left over I would I invest and out interest towards charity. If I didn't win much I wouldn't buy our farm I would just use the money towards a deposit.

I'd love to buy a massive tract of threatened wilderness, scrub, bush or rainforest and conserve it. Conserve the wildlife, the flora, traditional customs of the land.
