If I won 10 mill.  I would give the seller of the ticket about 1%...thats a lot of money...and the purchaser 25%...(it was a gift to me...the winner..) and the only reason I got it was for the sake of the gift...(it's the thought that counts...so they say...lol.you look good if they win 10 mill. And you look like you tried for the best for them...If they lose...

I'd give them 50% of my after-tax winnings, regardless of the amount I won, even if I won US$400 MILLION.

I'd at least pay them back the price of the lottery ticket.  I'm a "Cancer" and once I get my claws around something, I never let it go."

Watch me get the comments now. Hey! Who asked them to buy the ticket anyway? They buy something for me then expect a part of it? Indian givers

If it was for, example, for ten million dollars then I would give them a million at least. I am an Aquarius and we are kind and generous to a fault.

It's funny how people mention that they would "only if it was a substantial amount."  How do they decide what amount is enough to share?  The moment you say something like that, you're already being selfish.  You never would have won if the person who thought of you did not buy you that ticket!  These are the same people who would sell their own mother if the price was right.

Of course, I'd share with him/her if it 'd be a gift that he/she gave to me. As I thought,he/she brought luck to me, so if I won,why not,I could't share with him/her. We should be happy together,right ?.

Of course. I would ask them to match me in my favorite charity though & give them extra for doing so. Maybe after donating they will like the way they can help & do it on there own when they can.

Does that person expect it? Would it be inappropriate to buy them one? Of course I would, but I can't speak for the general populous. These are some things, I'm sure, others may consider.

I absolutely would.  Not only would the original purchaser of the ticket get some cash so would my family and my church.  If the amount was large enough a few charities would benefit as well.
