EuroMillions fever gripping Ireland as Tuesday’s Jackpot rolls to an incredible €140 million

How would you spend the mouth-watering €140 million?


EuroMillions fever is gripping Ireland as Tuesday’s jackpot rolls to a mouth-watering €140 million.

And as players dream of winning this mind-boggling cash pile, the National Lottery has come up with suggestions for how an Irish winner could #sharethedream and spend some of the mega fortune.

A National Lottery spokesperson says an Irish win on Tuesday would be the biggest ever for the country, topping the mega €115 million won by Limerick’s Dolores McNamara back in 2005 and comfortably surpassing the €15m won from a ticket bought in Carrick-on-Suir in 2008.

“This is an incredible amount of money. A winner could fulfil all their wildest dreams and have plenty to share with their loved ones if they win this life-changing nine figure sum. The jackpot is on a roll with nobody winning the special €130 million Mega EuroMillions jackpot last Friday. If the jackpot is not won on Tuesday it will roll to a spectacular €170 million on Friday.

“When it comes to EuroMillions, Ireland has had the rub of the green with 12 jackpot wins. This year alone there have been 13 EuroMillions Plus wins of €500,000. With retailers doing brisk business ahead of the €140 million jackpot on Tuesday, we are advising players to play early to avoid queues. Or buy your tickets at or through the National Lottery App,” a spokesperson adds.

Here are some ways you could spend a fraction of the fortune:

A slice of paradise

With all the excitement you may be glad of a tropical bolt hole to get away from it all. A private island in the turquoise waters of the Caribbean offers the ideal escape for friends and family. Frozen Cay Island is fringed with pristine white powder sand and complete with a luxury six bed house is yours for €15 million.

Luxury penthouse

How about a nice weekend pad not too far away from home? Snap up a chic penthouse in London’s fashionable Knightsbridge, a mecca for shopping. Saville’s have an exquisite six bedroom penthouse spanning 6,215 square feet with two roof terraces, private parking and unrivalled views across London on their books –  all for €32 million.

Rev it up

Now you have a dream island and luxury city pad sorted, why not rev it up with some cool new wheels? One of the most expensive cars currently on sale in Ireland is a sleek, silver 2011 Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport. With luxurious leather interior, this turbo charged beauty will set you back €3.2 million.

Buy some bling

Diamonds, we are told, are a girl’s best friend. So nothing less than a fine gem for her to celebrate the massive win. As a guide, Sotheby’s recently sold a 3.47-carat intense blue diamond ring sold for a cool €5 million. And for him, a John Player Special’ Rolex Daytona wrist watch in yellow gold is due for auction at Christie's and is expected to fetch between €500,000 to €1 million.
