So it's a rollover on the euro millions and the jackpot is now £95 million.

I'm sitting here killing time until they announce I've won. Just thinking of how I'd spend it.

Obviously there's the huge house and fancy car, helicopter pilot training and a share of a helicopter, so that's £20 million gone. I'm struggling with how to spend the rest.

So my question to you is... How would you spend £95 million?

I'd invest the other £75 million in property development, so I could get even more stinking rich. Surely if you have that kind of money, it is a lot easier to accumulate even more?

I'd hire top advisors, so I did not pay a penny in tax!

I'd be the most generous photographer on Purestorm, loved by the models. I'd own a Leica S2 with all the lenses and have weight training so I could use it. I'd buy up a film studio for my model shoots!

Dream on!

I'd buy luxury flats in several major European cities (say 3/4 of them at ~£5-10million each) and then simply live off the interest on what's left. According to Coutts' website you'll get ~2%, so even if you blew £45million on houses/cars etc. the other £50million will still net you £1million a year, that's more than enough to pretty much live a lifestyle I'd be happy with.

Or even just taking into account that I've probably got at best 40 years left on this Earth, that'll pay myself £2.3 million a year even without interest (and I'm fortunate not to have any kids, or anyone to depend on me). Unless you've got kids to pass it on to I don't think there's any sense in hoarding it, it may as well be spent.

Good Question Howard
For 95 Million

Houses X2 One to live in one to shoot from cost say 30 Million
Bank Account say 5 Million
Equities held in certificated form half for growth and half for dividends 26 out of 100 companies in the FTSE100 are paying 4%+

House for the shoots would have all the boys toys Miele built in Coffee Maker and appliances plus cinema, games room.
The jackpot is now 105 Million and that will do me nicely just working out my Casting add

You may never have to refill a car ever again... simply buy a new one every time you run out of fuel and abandon it with the keys in a bit like what Bill Gates did when he earned his first $million

Buy a Premier League club...£95 million would buy Gareth Bale at £85 million and you have a cool £10 million left for the other 10 players...

Nice House at Gleneagles (£2.5M)
Nice House in Barnes, London (£4M - love the wetlands there)
Nice Villa in the Seychelles (£5M+)

Then never stay in any of them as I'd be too busy jetting 1st class all over the world.

How would you spend £95 million?

I'd spend the first £90 million on beautiful women, great food and excellent wine ..... but the other £5 million I might just fritter away.

Maybe a couple of Leicas to put in the door pockets of my new Jag F-Type. That's the Sunday car of course. Maybe a Hummer to sort out a few road rage candidates...

 Nooo ! if you did that we'd probably get a load of them wanting to come back. I've had enough of dragons and white knights on forums.

If you did that, none of the Gloucester massive would know who to shag next
