Some bingo sites have become popular for their massive life-changing jackpots with sums as large as £20,000.
And imagine you suddenly find yourself with such a windfall – what would you do? Where would you go? With so many excellent destinations to really make the most of your cash, the hardest part is deciding which to opt for.
Perhaps you long for a private beach all of your own? Or maybe you’d prefer to behave like a billionaire for the weekend and splash out in New York?
Read on for some more ways in which you can indulge with your winnings.
One of the ultimate long-haul luxury destinations, the Maldives is more often than not top of the list for honeymooners and those with a generous pot of cash won on a free bingo site.
And it’s no wonder, given its superior beaches, cobalt blue waters and warm welcome, which makes it stand out as one of the world’s most beautiful paradise islands. Not to mention luxurious hotels and fine dining opportunities aplenty.
Nestled in the middle of the Indian Ocean, the Maldives is a series of ancient coral reefs that grew out of towering prehistoric volcanoes. While these immense volcanic structures have long since sunk into the ocean, coral islands of incredible natural beauty have been left behind in their place.
A trip to New York wouldn’t be complete without soaking up Times Square, taking in the view of the city that never sleeps from the dizzying heights of the Empire State Building and seeing the Statue of Liberty up close. You’ll feel like you’re on the set of a movie and if you’re lucky, you might even catch one being filmed while you’re there.
There’s no hotel more famous than the Ritz-Carlton just by Central Park and a room in a premiere suite will cost you close to £3,000, which means with a bingo jackpot win of £20,000 you’ll comfortably be able to rest your head on a superior pillow for a long weekend at least.
And once you know you have a great place to rest, it’s time to hit the bright lights of the big city. Make like Carrie Bradshaw and her Sex and the City buddies and sup on cocktails at the Empire Hotel. Complete with pool deck and stunning views, the Manhattans will slip down easily here.
Everyone who visits Paris for the first time probably has the same tick list of places they want to visit. Of course, the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, Notre Dame etc… are unmissable, but with plenty of cash to splash – take time to soak up the luxurious and more decadent side of the city of love.
Now’s your chance to experience haute cuisine at its finest – there’s a reason the French are picky about their food – and once you’ve tasted the fine flavours on offer, you’ll know why too. Take Le Meurice for example, designed by Philippe Starck and with three Michelin stars (the maximum you can get), your tastebuds will certainly be pleased to be indulging in such lauded gastronomy.
Then there’s the shopping. While it’s easy to blow your cash in Paris, make sure you leave yourself enough to buy a luxurious souvenir – the pulse of Paris design and fashion is around the Faubourg Saint-Honore district so hotfoot it there for a stunning outfit by classic designers like Versace, Hermes and Yves Saint Laurent.
