How to Spend €15 Million
The EuroMillions jackpot starts at €15 million offering you the chance to fulfil your lifelong dreams. If you win the jackpot and find yourself short of ideas on what to spend the money on, take a look at our suggestions below for some inspiration.
Top of the wish-list for many winning ticket holders would be a luxurious new place to live, and winners of a €15 million jackpot would have the option to set up home in some of London’s most beautiful areas. There are lavish homes on the Neo Bankside, a waterside development near Tate Modern, with one luxury three-bedroom apartment valued at €3.7 million, offering spectacular views of the River Thames and across to St Paul’s Cathedral.
Life in the city is not for everyone, and many multi-millionaires prefer to go for grand mansions in glorious rural settings. Weybridge in Surrey contains some of the most expensive streets in England and there are some stunning country manors. A six-bedroom house in St George’s Hill for example, complete with beautiful landscaped gardens, a cinema room, wine cellar, swimming pool and gym, would cost around €11.2 million. Many celebrities, from Tom Jones to Michael Aspel, have called the area home, and there are local golf and tennis clubs to keep your days busy.
It may be that you don’t fancy moving at all and leaving your friends and family, but with €15 million there is nothing to stop you from purchasing a second home which would be perfect for the occasional getaway. Always liked holidaying in France or fancied spending more time in Spain? It could be yours - imagine snapping up a four-bedroom villa in El Toro, Mallorca, with its own private swimming pool and uninterrupted sea views, for €6 million
If you have a reliable car which always gets you from A to B but doesn’t look too flash, it may just be time to park it at the bottom of the drive for a while and indulge in something a little more snazzy. Whether you’ve always wanted to drive a Ferrari, Porsche or live out your James Bond fantasy in a classic Aston Martin, motoring enthusiasts will have no shortage of ideas of how they could use €15 million. If you’re after a Jaguar XJ220, a limited edition with a top speed of 214mph shouldn’t set you back more than €562,000, which means you’d have more than enough left over for other indulgences.
A €15 million windfall would allow you to visit some of the world’s most exotic locations and experience different cultures. You could travel by yacht around the Caribbean coastline, visit an opulent five-star hotel in New York, see the skyscrapers of Dubai or tour around some of the world’s great capital cities. If you have always had your eye on more adventure, you could take part in an African safari and soak up the lush landscapes of a beautiful continent. Want to go from London to Edinburgh via Moscow, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Syndey, and a host of American cities? It’s definitely within reach for a fraction of your winnings - a twelve-city, business-class itinerary with British Airways, part of the OneWorld Alliance, currently clocks in at under €11,000.
Instead of settling for a night on the sofa watching the football or a concert, you could use your EuroMillions jackpot to try and snap up a few tickets to soak up the atmosphere live. If sport is your passion, then why not make a trip to the Champions League final, the Super Bowl or even the Australian Open for a spot of tennis? If you prefer music, you could go to the last night of the Proms or see a concert at Carnegie Hall. You could even spring for box seats - after all, you’d be pretty flush with cash!
It may be that your dream has always been to have a successful career, but you haven’t had the financial clout to get a new business venture up and running. That would all change with €15 million in the bank, and you could move forward in which ever direction you wish. Whether you think you know all there is to know about online marketing or have designs on building your own knitting empire, this is the chance to see what you can accomplish. Get the finest minds in business together and turn your goals into a reality.
