In this blog: Natasha explores an always fun proposition – What would you do if you had $1 Million to spend?
It’s time to indulge in fantasy…
Imagine winning a poker tournament and the 1st place pay out was $1 million?! How amazing would that be?! It’s easy what you would do with it, so I thought it would be a fun article to go through some things you may like to splurge on or even blow the whole lot on in one go!
Sam’s Ferrari 458
When Sam came second in the One Drop, he decided to treat himself to a car, no other than a Ferrari, the 458 Italia…. in red!!
So, lets start with cars then! If you wanted to treat yourself with your winnings, lets look at what car you could splurge on!
Everest Poker are running an amazing promotion with Sam this Summer:
Audi R8 Spyder
I love this car!! I think it’s so beautiful. This is the newest Audi R8, prices for this start at £103,000.
The R8 has everything you would expect from a supercar – staggering performance and brilliant handling – plus some things you might not, such as decent refinement and everyday usability.
For a cool quarter of a million, you could also bag yourself one of these!!
Mercedes-Benz is known the world over for being luxurious, tough, reliable and powerful.
If you can’t drive or you’re just not that into cars, why not treat yourself to a beautiful watch? The options out there today are endless and it seems players of the poker world like to invest in a good watch.
What a lovely way to treat yourself to buy a watch, something you can wear at the table and will always mean that special memory to you.
Check out this Breitling for Bentley. It’s a classic yet understated, and will set you back £9,200.
This is a timeless piece and will look smart no matter what you are doing. It can be carried through from day to nights out and isn’t too much of a statement.
Or if you’re feeling a bit flashy and want to show off what you’ve treated yourself to you could go for this white gold diamond Cartier watch costing a whopping £49,300!!
Fancy a trip with your winnings?? Where better to take your close ones than Las Vegas?!
You can treat yourself to one of Aria’s High Roller suites. They can be found on the very top floor of the soaring City Centre hotel. These jaw-dropping penthouse villas have three bedrooms, two stories and up to 7,000 square feet. There’s also a private salon, fitness centre, two living rooms, a master bathroom and a full kitchen and bar.
Sound amazing? You would hope so for $7,500 per night! What a treat that would be!
Of course it would be fun thinking of what you might want to treat youself to from your winnings, but imagine someone said you had to blow your full $1 million? Imagine how extravagant the items would have to be? What can you get with a huge $1 million? Lets see!
What car could your money buy you?
Hennessey Venom GT Spyder is $1,100,000.
What makes the 2013 Hennessey Venom GT Spyder is its price tag, a compelling 1.1 million dollars. There is no other convertible in the world today that can match-up with this car. Not to mention that it goes from 0-60 mph in 2.5 seconds.
Or why not be super flashy at the poker table and blow the lot on a watch?
The Hublot Classic Fusion Haute Joaillerie costing $1 Million.
Limited to only eight pieces, earns its $1 million price tag with the 1,185 baguette diamonds covering every surface of the watch, from the case and bracelet to the open worked dial. For the case alone, a 15-person team had to perform 1,800 hours of cutting and 200 hours of dimensional checking and quality control. Certainly one of the most expensive watches ever made by Hublot.
Don’t want something that you can show off? Want to blow your money on something for behind closed doors?
$1 Million Bathtub
Then why not get this $1 million dollar bathtub? Yes, I said bathtub!
Nothing can be more luxurious than relaxing in the world’s most expensive bathtub on an evening. If you’re not content with a plain porcelain bathtub and have enough riches to flaunt, then why not splurge on a million dollar bathtub that is made of a single piece of rock crystal found in the Amazonian rain forest. This bathtub is 2.5 meters in diameter and has been crafted by the Italian company Baldi. It took six months to design this bathtub.
If none of that takes your fancy, then why not just have a huge celebration?
XS Nightclub, Las Vegas £1 Million Champagne Experience
You may be interested to know that XS in Vegas offer a $1 million champagne experience. Armand de Brignac and XS Nightclub have announced their $1 million Armand de Brignac “Empire” Collection. Calling it the “ultimate package,” buyers will receive 18 bottles from Armand de Brignac’s Brut Gold Champagne and Rosé Dynastie collections, ranging in size from standard 750ml bottles to the enormous 30L Midas bottle.
(not sure I would want the hangover from this!)
Of course I am only speaking hypothetically throughout this article. It’s quite interesting to see what your money can buy.
However, call me boring, if you asked me personally how I would spend my winnings it wouldn’t be anywhere near as fun as some of these options. I am very careful and responsible with money, not to mention tight, haha! I would spend wisely and invest, but who wants to read about how to do that?!
Thanks so much for reading I hope you’ve enjoyed it as much as I have researching these luxurious and quite frankly outrageous things!
That’s all for now!
