Last week we looked at the global appeal of Euromillions (with €168 million up for grabs it’s no wonder the world loves this lottery so much. But let’s not forget about the other high flying lottery currently enamouring lottery players from around the world – The USA Powerball.
Let’s take a look at this spectacular $185 million USD jackpot in a couple other currencies!
Whether you’re dealing in Swedish Kroner or Russian Rubles there is no denying that a giant jackpot prize has serious worldwide appeal. If money makes the world go around then Wednesday’s American Powerball jackpot must be turning the earth at record speeds on its axis.
Let’s see what $185,000,000.00 translates to in other currencies around the globe:
(below figures are approximates based on exchange rates at xe.com)
5,853,188,000.00 Russian Rubles
With this many Rubles in your account you can easily keep up with the Russian President Vladimir Putin. Mr. Putin has a wristwatch collection worth more than $700,000. Buy a Patek Philippe Ref 5016P, worth $762,000. This watch has features like moon-phase display and a perpetual calendar which shouldn’t need adjusting until the year 2100.
606,446,000.00 Polish Zloty
With that many Zloty in your bank account somehow a year supply of beer doesn’t seem to cut it. Why not dream BIG with something a little more adventurous. We are thinking perhaps some Antarctic Nail Ale. This special brew is made with actual Antarctic ice, the first bottle going at an auction for $800.00!
₩ 201,409,690,000.00 South Korean Won
Why not celebrate your giant lottery win at the Park Hyatt hotel’s ‘Cornerstone’ restaurant in Seoul? It has an outstanding reputation being widely regarded as one of the best restaurants in Asia. A meal for eight people would set you back a mere ₩ 5,000,000.00!
Kč 3,694,862,000.00 Czech Koruna
Every year around one million Czech’s head off to the coast of Croatia for their summer holiday! Croatia, with the beautiful Adriatic Sea and the many islands of adventure off its coast, is the most popular holiday destination for the Czech Republic. With an unlimited bank account and a permanent holiday lifestyle you can spend your life travelling the coastlines of the world.
HK$ 1,433,906,000.00 HKD Hong Kong Dollar
Place a sizeable bet at the Hong Kong Jockey Club with an almost unlimited bank balance. Of course we are not suggesting you gamble your win away but a little bit of fun at the track could be a good way to kick start your permanent vacation.
659,191,000.00 Romanian New Leu
Why not rub some Leu’s together and purchase one of Romania’s most famous landmark, Dracula’s castle? Technically the castle is not for sale (it is now a museum) but perhaps if a substantial enough offer is put forward they might reconsider.
$185 million is big money in whatever currency you operate in. Make sure you are in the running for this life changing jackpot amount. Wednesday would be wonderful with a Powerball win!
