There are secondary prizes as well.

I would make a fire and burn 100,000$ because it will probably be the greatest feeling in the world.

If I win then I will finally be able to give up DDFing and just relax the whole day.  ;)

On a serious note, I think that it's a lot more worthwhile to win a smaller lottery than such a big one. I always see statistics that lotteries kill people's life's, many times their relatives get kidnapped, and they usually lose their friends. That being the case, it is a lot more likely to happen when one wins such a high profile lottery. I would much rather win a $100M lottery than a $650M lottery. (I might only be saying this before the fact, but I think that I may be more qualified to say it now, without any blinding greed.)

I think the kidnappers will be fine with $100mil too. As for your friends, 100mil can change things too.
But why announce your winnings??

The greatest feeling would be taking that money out of the fire, and feeding 50,000 hungry children.
When somebody thanks you for a favor you've done, respond "my pleasure", not "no problem".
