    first conditional or second conditional

    Dear Teachers,

    I keep buying lottery ticket
    The lottery winner is $ 1million
    I do not win yet

    Can I say this : If I win $1million ( from lottery grand prize ) I will buy you a nice car ( my non native English says that is correct even though the chance of winning is very remote, 1 per 1 million )

    But I insist that this is wrong

    Hence, I ask this question here

    Many thanks

    Re: first conditional or second conditional

    If I win $1million I will buy you a nice car. = real possibilty
    If I won $1million I would buy you a nice car. = less real possibility.
