A Day in the Life of a £151 Million EuroMillions Winner
11th October 2016 10:32 AM
Tonight’s EuroMillions jackpot is worth a magnificent £151 million (€166 million) and lottery fans across Europe will already be dreaming about how to spend this life-changing sum of cash. What would it feel like to wake up knowing you had one of the largest wins in EuroMillions history nestling in your bank account?
The alarm on your £15,000 24K Gold Edition iPhone 7, with diamonds depicting the Apple logo and spelling out your name on the case, would wake you from your peaceful slumber in a suite at the $2,500-a-night Carlisle Bay in Antigua, one of the ten best luxury hotels in the Caribbean according to the Telegraph. Of course, you would have no reason to be up early, having handed in your notice at work with immediate effect as soon as the cash was transferred, but the alert would merely be informing you that it was time to head out onto the sun terrace to catch some rays as you doze on a lounger.
As you reach past the grovelling congratulations card from your bank manager to turn off the alarm, you could pick up your Snapchat Spectacles, recording the short walk out onto the balcony from your point of view and posting it to your account in order to give those back home a glimpse of your new lifestyle. If you wanted to show them even more of the spectacular surroundings, you could attach your new GoPro HERO5 camera to the Karma Drone (worth roughly £1,000 combined, which would be mere pocket change to you) and send it off on a filming mission across the crystal-clear sea.
You wouldn’t want your friends and family to miss out on the good life too much, so you could pick up your £2,199 Microsoft Surface Pro 4 tablet, boasting 1TB of storage and an Intel Core i7 processor, and order them some fancy gifts. With Christmas just a couple of months away, the Harrods Decadence hamper is the perfect present to make the festivities go with a bang. At £20,000 per hamper, the recipients will enjoy a host of fine wines and spirits, luxury tea and coffee, a selection of caviar, smoked salmon, exotic fruit, sumptuous cheese and a dizzying array of meat. There is confectionary, cake, sauces and condiments, 12 Christmas crackers and even a cheese curler included in the package. If you treated 50 of your nearest and dearest to this spectacular feast, you would still only have spent £1 million of your £151 million haul.
After making your purchases, you might like to get out and about, and the perfect way to see the island would be from behind the wheel of your brand new Ferrari F12, which would set you back just £241,000 and has been named as one of the top ten sports cars of 2016 by What Car? magazine.
Matching all five main numbers and two Lucky Stars tonight to become the biggest EuroMillions winner since a Portuguese player banked €190 million on Friday 24th October 2014 would allow you to turn your dreams into reality. A UK winner would also be able to boast the second largest win in sterling, leaping above Adrian and Gillian Bayford of Suffolk, whose €190 million prize in August 2012 converted to £148.6 million at the time due to the exchange rate. To improve your chances of picking up a major cash award, you might also consider joining an online syndicate. Take a look at the Syndicates section to find out more.
You can buy EuroMillions tickets online or from authorised retailers across the nine participating countries up until 7:30pm BST (8:30pm CEST) today. Good luck!
