The jackpot for tonight’s drawing is up to $1.5 billion. Here’s a few awesome things you could do if you’re the lucky winner.
Buy Your Own Island
Private islands are surprisingly affordable! Now that you’re a billionaire, buy your own retreat from the rest of the world. The island is all yours, you can do whatever you want and no one can bother you. Sounds like a dream come true.
Travel Around the Entire World
Lots of people have figured out how to travel the world on a low budget. It can cost as little $15,000 to spend a year globe trotting. With $1.5 Billion, you could spend years traveling modestly or blow it all on one super luxurious trip.
Adopt all the pets
With that kind of money, you can afford a big house with a big yard and plenty of help. Why not go nuts and empty out all the local pet shelters? You’d be saving so many animals from a sad fate and just think of all the fun you could have playing with your herds of dogs and cats!
Eat a really expensive doughnut
This doughnut made of gold and champagne is outrageously priced at $100 a pop, but wouldn’t it be cool to try one? Hey, you’re a billionaire, spring for a whole dozen.
Get a closet just for your shoes
If you ever watch reality shows like Keeping Up with the Kardashians, you may have noticed that wealthy celebrities often have multiple closets, including one just to hold their hundreds of pairs of shoes. As a billionaire, you can join the elite shoe closet club. It would probably make getting ready in the morning a little more difficult, but it’s nice to have options.
Take a bath in champagne
Champagne is the elixir of the gods. You could drink it like a normal person, or you could fill your bathtub with it and soak up the liquid luxury. Rich people do weird things. Embrace it.
Party on a yacht
Buying your own yacht is a hassle. You don’t need to bother with all the complexities of hiring crew and maintaining your vessel when you can easily charter someone else’s yacht for a short excursion. For a mere $1 million a week you can party it up on the most luxurious form of transportation money can buy.
Never do laundry again
Doing laundry sucks. As a billionaire, you can just throw out your dirty clothes each week and buy new stuff to replace it. Think of how much water and electricity you’ll save by never running a washer and dryer. It’s not greedy, it’s environmentally conscious.
Invite Taylor Swift to perform at your house
It only costs about $1 million to book one of the world’s hottest pop acts for a private event. Have her come to your house and sing to you and then invite her stay for a while and bake cookies with you. She seems like she’d be into that sort of thing.
Donate to a worthy cause
All of the ideas on this list sound like a ton of fun, but the best thing you should do with your new fortune is to donate a large portion to charity. You really don’t need that much money and it will make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. You’ll still have plenty of funds leftover to do basically whatever you want for the rest of your life.
