Luxury Ways To Splash Mega-Cash

After one lucky winner scooped a staggering £93 million jackpot in last night's EuroMillions draw, they are now in a position to buy everything from private islands to superstar footballers.

Here is a look at some of the luxuries on which the millionaire ticketholder could splash their considerable winnings.

:: Last night's earnings could be put towards staging a mini Formula 1 race for the winner's enjoyment. The estimated cost of building an F1 car ranges from £6 million to £9 million, allowing them to host at least a 10-car race with some change left over.

:: Commercial space trips would also be within the financial orbit of last night's winner - 581 trips to space, to be exact. Virgin Galactic hopes to launch paying customers into the stratosphere in the next few years, charging #160,000 per ticket.

:: A private island on each of the world's oceans is another investment they could make. Options include a sandy paradise off the coast of the United Arab Emirates for a reported £11 million and a 100-acre island near Fiji in the South Pacific for #2.8 million.

:: Flash timepieces could be purchased by the thousands, including a £40,000, 18-carat gold Audemars Piguet watch or a #50,000 Titanium Tag piece. If the jackpot winner fancied a particularly extravagant purchase, the 24-carat gold Corpus Clock in Cambridge - which features a time-eating cockroach statue on top of it - was constructed for around £1 million and unveiled by Professor Stephen Hawking in 2008.

:: Expensive artwork could also adorn the walls of the ticketholder's potentially multimillion-pound estate. Some of the priciest paintings of all time - including Francis Bacon's £89 million studies of Lucian Freud and Jackson Pollock's similarly valued No. 5, 1948 - fall comfortably within the price range.

:: A number of the world's most expensive jets would fit on to the shopping list, including a £41 million Gulfstream G650 - currently one of the fastest private business jets on the market, which is equipped with a full kitchen and bar.

:: The services of Welsh footballer Gareth Bale were snapped up by Real Madrid for roughly £85 million in 2013, meaning this lucky winner theoretically has the money to commission his talents. Offering everything from world-class football experience to impressive basketball skills and gradually improving Spanish, Bale would make a fine addition to any millionaire's estate.

:: A thrill-seeking high-roller would be able to turn their garden into an adrenaline junkie's paradise, by filling it with world-famous rollercoasters. Thorpe Park's Nemesis Inferno was built for £8 million and Alton Tower's vertical-drop rollercoaster Oblivion cost £12 million to construct, meaning several dozen could be thrown up on a £93 million budget.
