For most of us, money can buy happiness, especially if you have won millions of the latest mega lottery jackpot like the 162 million EuroMillions Superdraw Quadruple Rollover. You only have to look at the world’s rich list and see what how they are living the mega wealthy lifestyle – they literally have the world at their fingertips.
If they want something – they buy it. The sky’s the limit and they enjoy the best of the best.
Being mega rich comes with privileges and perks. They probably can’t even remember what it was like to stand in a queue. They simply board their private jets, complete with every desirable amenity imaginable and cross the globe as many times as they want to, chasing the sun and living the uber-wealthy life.
The super-rich love going big! Their endless fortunes also come with fantastic opportunities and they enjoy only the finest the world has to offer, whether it’s a luxurious home in Mumbai, a $2 million bottle of cognac to sip while travelling in their private on call limo’s or their own private islands to kick back and relax.
Below is a list of things only billionaires can afford to do, and yes, some are rather odd.
The $200,000 Pigeon
$200,000 on a pigeon? Pigeon racing may not be on everyone’s top ten list of sports, but in Asia it’s huge and there’s a lot of money to be made. While most fans are not in the billionaire class, there are a few. One Chinese buyer paid an astonishing $200,000 for a racing pigeon. Let’s hope this highly pedigreed bird will be winning back the owners initial capital!
The $1 Billion Home
India’s richest man was definitely thinking big when he spent $1 billion dollars on what’s known as the world’s most expensive home. With 9 elevators, a theatre comprising of 50 seats, a two story recreation centre and three helipads on the roof. I can imagine it now, hearing the burring sound above and thinking “My dinner guests have landed.” - The joys of being super rich.
The $19M Car
Cars, supercars, fast cars, have always been on the top ten list, as one of the first things they would buy after winning the jackpot. There are those that don’t kid around, as in the 2010 purchase of a Ferrari 250 GTO from the 1960s by British radio host Chris Evans. Evans reportedly paid a staggering 12 million pounds for the car, which equals about $19 million dollars.
The $390,000 Reward
Be honest - have you ever bribed your child with luxury goods to encourage them to do well in their education? I’ve promised the latest must have teenage gadget but a limousine? Sean “Diddy” Combs did just that. He rewarded his seventeen year old son, Justin, for making the honour roll.
There are many billionaires who have earned their money through financial smarts and continue to make purchases that, at least on some level, make sense. For the rest of us, at least we get free entertainment from the not-so-frugal billionaires.
Of course, excessive purchases tend to make the news but by simply purchasing a EuroMillions lottery ticket at PlayHugeLottos.com right now – could see you make the uber rich list and giving you the opportunity to buy – well, anything.
