A Great New Home
Anyone who has ever played EuroMillions will have dreamed about what they might do with a massive windfall, and this evening’s incredible nine-figure sum could set lucky winners up for life. As well as paying off your mortgage and providing financial security for you and your loved ones, one of the top wishes for many ticket holders is to move to a nicer home, and anyone who lands £112 million might just fancy buying a house on Kensington Palace Gardens. The exclusive London road has an average property price of £38.2 million, according to Zoopla, so you could move in yourself and even buy a new pad for your best mate next door!
If you really wanted to indulge in the luxury lifestyle, you could look to get a fleet of sports cars or even a superyacht. A stylish 55 metre-long motor yacht from the renowned Turquoise brand costs €24.9 million (£21.5 million) for the 2011 model, with three decks, accommodation for 12 guests and everything you could want for a perfect sun-drenched cruise.
Supply of Cakes for 70,000 People
It may be that you have simpler tastes and just want to enjoy your new-found wealth by splashing out on a crazy amount of cakes, with nobody able to moan about your eating habits. You could try hiring Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry to bake for you every day, or perhaps just purchase the world’s largest stock of Victoria Sponges. A top-quality, 12-inch Victoria Sponge may set you back £20, but with £112 million in your pocket you could buy 5.6 million. Assuming you ate one a day for 80 years, you would be able to generously feed 70,000 other people at the same rate.
Pursue Your Passions
Another option might be to really pursue a personal passion. Chris and Colin Weir, who won £161.3 million on EuroMillions in July 2011, have made several large donations to the Scottish National Party, as well as investing heavily in football club Partick Thistle. You could also help out with politics or sport if you won big tonight, and would have enough money to pay the next England manager’s annual salary until 2053 if they are given the same £3 million yearly wage as the recently sacked-Sam Allardyce!
Ways to Win
While the jackpot is stunning, there are some great prizes up for grabs in other winning tiers, and thanks to the new game format there are now two winning Millionaire Maker codes in every draw. Philip and Joanne Poultney from the Isle of Man, who won £1 million in last Tuesday’s draw, still received enough to buy a new family home and new cars, but they have no intention of giving up work. Even winning the Match 5+1 Lucky Star prize can still set you up with a seven or six-figure sum!
If you want to be in with a chance of winning tonight you can try for a shot at ten free tickets up until 7.30pm tonight thanks to Euro-Millions.com’s Free Ticket Frenzy. Alternatively, you can play online or visit an authorised retailer in one of the participating countries. It promises to be a special evening, and you could just be left with a decision over how to spend a major win when you wake up tomorrow morning. Good luck!
