Here are some examples of how you might spend this week’s massive EuroMillions prize.
Spending Your EuroMillions Prize on Yourself
Winning a nine-figure sum means you never need to tighten your belt financially again. If you’ve always dreamed of owning a sprawling country estate with stables and a swimming pool, you will have your choice of properties to pick from.
Similarly, if you wish to divide your time between some of the world’s most bustling and exciting cities, you could snap up luxury pads in London, Barcelona and New York without even having to think twice about splashing the cash.
You can treat yourself to tropical holidays or previously unimaginable adventures like trekking to the South Pole, and you could even book a set of tickets to go into space as soon as commercial travel into the stratosphere becomes a reality.
If you would like to quit your job, but don’t like the idea of having too much time on your hands, why not set up your own business using some of the funds from your major prize?
Spending Your EuroMillions Prize on Your Loved Ones
One of the best aspects of being fabulously wealthy after a EuroMillions win is being able to spoil those around you. You can ensure your parents are mortgage-free and comfortable in retirement. You could set up trust funds for your children to ensure they have the best start in life, and you might even think about swapping all of your friends’ old bangers for shiny new motors.
With Tuesday’s €160 million EuroMillions jackpot, you could throw the mother of all parties to celebrate your success and thank those who have been there for you previously.
Spending Your EuroMillions Prize on Charitable Donations
A big EuroMillions win would allow you to make a massive difference to the lives of those less fortunate than yourself. Perhaps you have a favourite charity that means something to you, or maybe you wish to spread your good fortune across a number of worthy causes; the choice is yours .
Colin and Christine Weir of Largs in Scotland won €185 million (£161.6 milion) in July 2011 and set up the Weir Charitable Trust. Community projects across Scotland are invited to apply for grants from the Trust, which launched in 2013 with £5 million of the couple’s own money behind it.
Buy EuroMillions Tickets
However you plan to spend the cash, you can only win Tuesday’s €160 million EuroMillions top prize by playing the game. Tickets are available at retailers in each of the nine participating countries, or you can choose your numbers online right now.
Picking your lines online is safe and secure; it is not possible to lose or damage your online EuroMillions numbers. You don’t even have to remember to check them, as the service you use does that on your behalf. Unlike with paper tickets, there is no risk of the prize expiring before you realise you are due a massive payout.
