Imagine winning the lotto jackpot tomorrow. Not just any small prize, but the big fat jackpot, somewhere in the order of 50 million euros. The world is suddenly a very different place. You will never have to worry about the future again. You’ll be asked to answer the question: “what are you going to do with your 50 million?"
These days, a number of lotteries offer a chance at winning a mega-jackpot of more than 50 million. You can do so at ELS Lotto by playing the EuroJackpot or EuroMillions. Even the Italian SuperEnalotto currently stands at almost 100,000,000.
So here is the question. How are you going to spend 50,000,000? It does not even matter much if the amount is in American dollars, British pounds, or Euros. An amount that big offers endless possibilities. We selected ten very interesting options for you to consider, all in the price range of 50 million.
