Most lottery winners look to move house, and you could do that in style with your £72 million windfall. Rightmove is advertising a seven-bedroom period mansion in the heart of Hampstead in London with six bathrooms, swimming pool, cinema room and a summer house for £46.5 million. You’d have plenty left to make the most of living so close to central London, with some of the world’s fanciest restaurants just a few minutes’ chauffeur-driven journey away.
You’ll obviously want to spend a large amount of time on holiday now that you don’t have to worry about the inconvenience of clocking in for work. To truly get away from it all, you could buy your own island, which would ensure you privacy and relaxation whilst sunning yourself. Turtle Island lies just off the coast of Queensland in Australia and is within easy reach of the Great Barrier Reef. It has an area of 23.25 acres and comes complete with a four bedroom house, tropical botanical gardens, a private jetty and a helipad and all for a very reasonable £3.1 million.
In order to hop across the water to your island, and to make best use of the helipad, you will need to buy your own chopper and you could easily pick one up for the equivalent of pocket change, given your newfound wealth. A 2007 McDonnell Douglas 520n will set you back a ‘mere’ $1.1 million.
If this has whetted your appetite, but you are struggling to decide which numbers to play, check out the EuroMillions Number Generator, which will provide however many lines you require of truly random numbers. You never know, one of them could be the line that nets you a life changing sum of cash.
