Maltese people have always been fascinated by the concept of lotteries. Playing ‘lucky numbers’ based on birthdays and other significant moments is a tradition that everyone include your nanna will remember. But while many daydream about what they’d do with the couple of thousands they can win from local lotteries, it’s time to take things up a notch with EuroMillions‘ latest jackpot.
Following another massive rollover, tonight’s jackpot lies at €108,000,000.
One Maltese person already ended 2017 in style by winning €20,000 at the SuperEnalotto, but with the EuroMillions’ €108,000,000 jackpot, things are set to go stratospheric.
With so many zeroes in one number, it gets a bit tough to understand just how big that jackpot really is.
So let’s try to put that into perspective for you. €108,000,000 in Malta gets you:
1. About 10 Maltese palaces
The palazzo is for many Maltese people the epitome of living in luxury. While these centuries-old residences vary in price according to their state and location, an average palazzo will set you back around €10 million.
Just don’t forget to buy a crown and a throne.
2. 100 packets of Twistees every single day for over 5,000 years
5,515 years, to be precise. Because you know, you might need those extra 18,334,000 packets of Twistees.
3. An opportunity to make all your loved ones millionaires overnight
If you’re a little stuck as to what to do with the money (or you’re somehow not a Twistees fan), you can split the money with all your loved ones, and you’ll still all be millionaires.
Give your bestie that recognition they’ve always deserved, or return the favour to your nanna for all that secretive pocket money she gave you.
4. A €250 gift card for every single person in the country
Yep; if you’re feeling extra generous, you can divide that money with each and every single person living on this island, from newborn babies to nanniet, and it would still come up to an impressive €250 each.
