Forget a family holiday or a new kitchen; we’re talking about the sort of money that would actually change your life. From designer handbags to a fleet of racing cars, here are some of the biggest and best jackpot winners of recent years did with all that money:
1. A fleet of supercars (and a world class parking lot)
When car mechanic Neil Trotter scooped £107million in the EuroMillions, he knew exactly what he’d be spending it on. He promptly quit his job (at the ripe old age of 41) and started amassing a collection of racing cars. Naturally, a huge car collection requires a huge storage facility, so he bought up a swathe of land and converted it into his very own private supercar parking lot.
2. A trip to Center ParcsIn 2012, Jobcentre worker John Orchard became the biggest ever bingo winner after he collected £5.9million on a 30p game. He pledged to buy a new house, trade in his Renault Clio for a Jaguar XF, treat his family to expensive presents, and… erm… take his wife on a weekend to Center Parcs
3. A tribute to The KingSylvia Sharp-Cardigan had been playing bingo for 30 years when she won a massive £128,000 jackpot at her local bingo hall. The Elvis fanatic knew exactly how she would spend her money: on a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Graceland, Tennessee – the beloved home of The King himself
4. Handbags and gladragsAngela Maxwell thought her husband Richard was playing an April Fool’s joke when he told her that they’d won more than £53million in the National Lottery. It wasn’t until the money arrived in their bank account that she started to believe him, and immediately started putting together a wishlist of designer handbags, shoes and clothes that were suddenly within her price range. Richard treated himself to a brand new Range Rover.
5. Football season
Carlisle-based couple Ivan and Debbie Brown could hardly believe their eyes when they won £1million from EuroMillions. The life-changing sum of money will be split between the entire family, although Ivan was determined to support his local footie team and fulfil a lifelong dream by buying a season ticket for his beloved Carlisle United.
