Euromillions Lottery Setting Records Again
The Euromillions lottery has increased on one hundred million pounds and it is one of the largest jackpots that have ever come up for grabs. All it takes is for one extremely lucky prize winner to get this one ticket and they will go down in history as being number three in the largest lottery prizes to date.
It seems a little strange but the number one and two in the largest winner slots was also from the UK. If the lucky winner comes from the UK this time, they will be on a par with David Bowie in the rich list, and we all know that he made mega millions over the years.
Last month, the Largs from Ayrshire went down in history as Europe’s biggest winners of all time when they got a staggering one hundred and sixty one million pounds all to themselves.
In October last year, another lucky punter from the UK won one hundred and thirteen million pounds but refused any publicity at all. Some people do this to preserve their privacy but one wonders how they can do this once they start spending?
To put this all in to context, if there is a winner this time, they would be able to buy up more than one thousand one hundred houses in Burnley in Lancashire. At One Hyde Park in London, the lucky winner could buy up many one bedroom apartments at just six point five million pounds each. Even a luxury apartment overlooking Central Park in New York goes for thirty million pounds so one could live here and still get some change.
To make the picture complete, the winner could then buy a one hundred year old Rolls Royce that used to be owned by the Maharaja of Mysore in India. This wonderful old car was customized with an umbrella to shield his servants, no less, from the hot sun – and all of this for a measly four hundred thousand pounds or thereabouts!
For art lovers, the winner could buy up a whole museum full of art if they chose to. Although some paintings go for huge amounts of money, there are lesser paintings that still fetch over several millions of pounds each. If they really wanted to splash out, they could have bought the painting by Picasso, Nude, Green Leaves and Bust (1932) and still got change since this one went recently for a mere seventy million pounds.
