With the exciting news that a couple in Hawick, David and Carol Martin, are the lucky winners of £33 million from the lottery jackpot, we’ve compiled a list of ten things the winnings could buy.

1) 194 PRIVATE ISLANDS

Why go on holiday with everyone else when you can buy your own private island just off the coast of Borneo? With a price tag of only £169.550 it would be silly not to; with £33 million you could splash out and get 194 islands.

2) 3 BEVERLEY HILLS MANSIONS

If the winners decide that a day away from Hawick is not a day wasted, then they might fancy buying a luxury detached house in Beverley Hills, California complete with six bedrooms, nine bathrooms and a price tag of £9,007,300. Why stop at one? With £33 million you could buy three.

3) 1,100,000 ROUNDS OF GOLF AT HAWICK

Apparently the jackpot winner is a keen golfer, and at £30 per round they could enjoy 1,100,000 rounds at Hawick Golf Club before the coffers run dry.

4) 2,820 TIFFANY DIAMOND RINGS

An engagement ring from Tiffany is out of the question for most people looking to pop the question and at £11,700 for a standard solitaire ring it’s clear to see why. But with a £33 million win you could buy 2,820 Tiffany sparklers.

5) 77,647 PAIRS OF LOUBOUTIN STILETTO PUMPS

Louboutin heels are a wise investment and will never go out of style. One pair will set you back £425 meaning you could buy 77,647 pairs. With that many pairs is there any need to ever wear a pair twice?

6) 1 VINTAGE FERRARI 250 GTO

The most expensive car to ever be sold at auction was a Ferrari 250 GTO from 1962 which sold for a whopping $38,115,000 or around £26,378,076. Granted with £33 million in the bank you could only buy one, but you would still have over £6 million in the bank to play with.

7) 36,871 MULBERRY BAYSWATER HANDBAGS

The luxury handbags are a must have item for any A-list celebrity and at only £895 per handbag why not splash out and get one in every colour? With £33 million in the bank you could be the lucky owner of 36,871 handbags.

8) 30,000 ‘GLAMBURGERS’

With a win that big, a burger from Mcdonalds just won’t cut the mustard anymore. The Glamburger, sold at restaurant Honky Tonk in London, costs £1,100 and is thought the be the most expensive burger. With toppings like Beluga caviar, gold leaf and lobster this is a step up from your average fast food joint, The winner could munch through 30,000 Glamburgers.

9) 622 NIGHTS AT PRESIDENT WILSON HOTEL

The hotel in Geneva boasts the most expensive room in the world at £53,000 a night in the Royal Penthouse Suit. Our winner could stay there for 622 nights before they would be forced to check out.

10) 471 ROLEX GOLD WATCHES

The famous watch brand can vary in price from £7,000 to £70,000 depending on your budget. I’m guessing with £33 million sitting in the bank then money really is no object. Even at top end of the spectrum, the winner could be the proud owner of 471 Rolex timepieces.
