Hey Powerball players, remember the movie Brewster’s Millions?
It’s a 1985 comedy set in New York and stars Richard Pryor as Monty Brewster, a guy who strikes it rich. One day, Brewster inherits a whopping $300 million from his late uncle, on the condition that he must first spend $30 million in 30 days.
But according to the rules of the will, he isn’t allowed to give the money away. He also can’t gamble it away or acquire any belongings that he didn’t already have. So Brewster has to come up with some creative ways to blow the cash!
With the upcoming US Powerball draw clocking in at a lip-quivering US$361 MILLION, spending tons of dough Brewster-style should be no problem.
In honour of this record-setting jackpot, LottoExpress brings you five New York-inspired activities that cost a pretty penny:
1. Eat the world’s priciest breakfast
The menu at New York’s Norma’s Restaurant features “The Zillion Dollar Lobster Frittata.” Topped with 10 ounces of caviar, this insane omelet costs $1,000.
2. Buy a round for the house at a Yankees game
At $3 a pop, the famous Nathan’s frank might seem downright frugal. But with Yankee Stadium’s capacity at 49,642, the tab for everyone to eat one will run you $148,926!
3. Take Jay-Z out for a night on the town
“Hova” knows how to party! Legendary hip-hop artist Jay-Z recently rang up a tab for over $250,000 on a night out with his pal Kanye West. An evening on the town with him will put you in an Empire State of Mind!
4. Book a room with a view
The $50,000-a-night Ty Warner Penthouse suite is a 4,300-square-foot palace atop NYC’s Four Seasons hotel. Complete with panoramic views of Manhattan, a 24-hour butler, and a personal trainer, why not make this your home base for your NYC adventure?
5. Run for mayor
Just like Brewster, you could dump wads of cash into a crazy election campaign! Even real-life NYC politicians are no strangers to big spending: former mayor Michael Bloomberg spent a whopping $109 million on his successful campaign in 2009.
New York might be the best city in the world to experience millionaire life, and LottoExpress is ready to help you try and win the big jackpot!
