With a EuroMillions Superdraw scheduled for Friday 5th June, millions of people across nine participating countries are dreaming big, forming syndicates and buying tickets in droves as they hope to become the latest jackpot winners. Winning €100 million (estimated £70 million) would open up a world of luxury that once seemed impossible - but what would it be like? To help you get an idea of what it’s like to be well and truly minted, Euro-Millions.com spoke to a site user who had lived the dream on a £28 million superyacht in the Caribbean.
‘We went to Antigua, where we transferred to a yacht so massive and amazing that it dwarfed all the other boats in the harbour when it was moored up! We went to Barbuda and then to Saint Kitts and Nevis. Overall, our trip was ten days.’
‘Just being on a superyacht - that’s not a typical holiday! You could do whatever you wanted. Today we’re going jet-skiing, today we’re going diving – it was all about you and what you fancied doing. No sitting by the pool! The privacy was a massive thing – you’re on a boat in the middle of nowhere, entirely by yourself,’ she said.
But what about the boat? ‘The yacht was totally designer - all customised rooms with their own themes, like Versace,’ she continued. ‘It had literally everything you wanted - stuff you couldn’t even think of wanting was on it. It had a minibar, cupboards of food and sweets and all the accessories you could imagine - sailboats, jetskis, the whole lot! There was turndown service in each room, so at the end of the night you got a little present on your bed!’
It’s all about the service when it comes to living large, and this superyacht was no exception. ‘The service was actually classed as seven-star,’ she said. ‘They were always there for you, but they were your friends too; it was never formal. They knew all our names straight away before we met them and remembered exactly what we liked in terms of food and drink. If we went on any excursions, one of them came with us to carry our things and grab our drinks at bars - true 24-hour service!’
The best part of the trip, she said, was spending a day on a private island. ‘The staff would bring us cocktails that you’d never think of – they would use our preferences to mix up unique drinks. The service made it – you don’t get that in a hotel on a package holiday. We were treated like royalty!’
Was it a perfect example of millionaire living? ‘Absolutely,’ she said. ‘If you won big, you could definitely afford this amazing yacht for yourself. A unique experience!’
Of course, you don’t have to wait until Friday for a chance to take up the multimillionaire lifestyle - there’s a EuroMillions draw on tonight offering a rollover jackpot worth £15 million (€21 million), which would certainly cover the cost of first-class flights, exotic getaways and anything else you could think of purchasing. Tickets are on sale now for tonight’s game as well as Friday’s Superdraw either online or in person from authorised retailers. Get yours now and start dreaming of what you’ll name the yacht you might buy come Wednesday (or Saturday) afternoon!
