1. Buy 50,000 Interactive electronic billboards (1,000 or more in every state)

so that the political (pro-Democratic) messages can be changed as often as needed. Complete with anti-vandalism video cameras...

Change my phone number, quit my job, and move to another country.

4. well, with my winning lotto ticket

I'm going to build the world's first true exaflop supercomputer (1,000,000,000,000,000,000 floating point operations per second), solar powered (or wind, or both) and use it to solve the issue of HOW to geo-engineer a solution to global warming. This means modeling the earth and it's chemistry along with the proposed Trillion dollar ( possibly 20 Trillion dollar ) plan to remove excess CO2 and methane before it makes the globe "not as friendly" as it is today ( or was in, say, 1900 ) for humans and other animals and wildlife.

Modeling the results for at least 100 years into the future.

And, if there is any computing capacity left over... start looking for a "cure" for cancer ( probably millions of "cures" that are unique to each individual and type of cancer )

Should cost around $1 Billion... including the building the house it, the solar and wind power to run it, and operational costs for 5 years or so.

May need to get some additional funding from people like Gates or Bezos, etc.

5. I just read about a woman who did exactly that.

She saw that she had all the winning numbers, but was reading the next day that there was no winner. When she called the store she bought the ticket from, she was informed that she bought her ticket one hour after the numbers were chosen.

(Price is Right tuba song...)
