How would you spend an $8 million lottery win?
Here’s what some other Big Apple customers had to say on Thursday, after the jackpot was announced.
 

“I would pay off my house, buy a camper and tour the United States with my pet bird and my husband.”

Caroline Poirier, Brunswick

“I would probably pay off the house and buy a new truck. I’m not sure about the rest. I never thought about it because I couldn’t get that lucky.”

Dottie Gilley, Oakland

“I’d retire from my construction job tomorrow. I’d do a lot of hunting and fishing. I’d also put my kid through the best schools I could find.”

Anthony Tibbetts, Skowhegan

“I’d go to Florida, where it’s warm. I’d retire, that’s for sure. I don’t know how I could spend the rest of it.”

Robert Davis, Norridgewock

“I would help all my family and friends. I’d help everybody I could.”

Leo Donahue, Norridgewock

“The first thing I would do would be to build a homeless shelter. I would donate a bunch to charities. Then I would probably take a week off of my job at Sears. You have to help people that need it.”

Uriah Donahue, Farmington
