5 Wild Things You Can Get if You Won a £1 Million Jackpot
OK, so you’ve been online and you’ve won the Mega Moolah jackpot. Not a bad day, all in all. Aside from being the envy of the online casino community, you’ve now got £1 million burning a hole in your pocket. Like all newly made millionaires, you’re looking for a way to spend your fortune. Well, if you look below, we think we’ve found the perfect quintet of options…
A High Roller Suite in Las Vegas
The perfect destination for anyone that’s banked a seven-figure sum playing online slots is Las Vegas. The world’s gambling capital, Sin City is full of ways to have fun. Of course, every night of revelry starts and ends in your hotel room and the suites in Vegas are unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. Take, for example, the Sky Villa at Palms Casino Resort.
At £28,000 per night, you’ll get a 9,000-square-foot villa, an infinity pool that stretches out into the Vegas skyline and a VIP ride to and from the airport. If you prefer to be a bit more active, the Palms’ Hardwood Suite comes in at £20,000 per night and features a full-size basketball court.
A Fleet of Tesla Cars
Everyone wants a supercar, but Ferraris and Lamborghinis are so last decade. If you want to travel at speed and help the environment too, you need a Tesla. For everyday use, you can buy the Model X, while the Model S will become your perfect weekend cruiser – especially if you pay for the Ludicrous Mode upgrade.
However, for a performance that will blow any petrol supercar out of the water, the Roadster is what you need. Set to be released in 2020, the base edition comes in at £158,000, but add-ons can make it a lot better and a lot more expensive. For the base price, you’ll get an electric car that can do 250+ mph and 0-60 in less than two seconds.
A Seat in the Famous Big Game
Anyone that’s ever played poker will have thought about the Big Game. Taking place inside Bobby’s Room at the Bellagio, Las Vegas, this game is home to poker’s top pros. From Doyle Brunson and Phil Ivey to leading internet stars, this is both the most intense yet entertaining poker game in the world.
As well as a whole lot of talent, you’ll need £790,000 just to sit down and mix it with the poker elite. Of course, if you’re looking to make a return on your investment, you will need a dose of luck and skill. However, if you can make the right moves at the right time, you could clean up and turn your million into a lot lot more.
A Flight into Space
With a million, you could jet off to anywhere in the world. However, you could also do that with a few thousand. If you really want to make the best use of your cash, you need a flight on Virgin Galactic. Costing £197,500 per person, this interstellar flight will see you brush the outer edges of the Earth, experiencing weightlessness before coming back down. For a fifth of your winnings, that’s a wild ride you’ll never forget.
A Tropical Island
When you’ve had your fun and it’s time to relax, there’s only one way to spend your million: buy an island. Although you’re not going to get a huge plot, there are mini-islands within your budget. For example, Lagoon Caye, Belize, will set you back £790,000.
At that price, you’ll get a ring-shaped 13-acre island with 7,000 square feet of seafront. With the mainland only 12 miles away, you can journey back and forth at your leisure and have the best of both worlds, just as any self-respecting millionaire would.
