Someone’s won the lottery! How much? R232 Million!
Even though the winner says that he’s not in a hurry to spend the money, we couldn’t help but wonder how you can blow it all in one day.
Consider enrolling yourself at the University of Pretoria and study one of their most expensive courses like a Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery. Six years could cost you up to R392 000.
Buy a watch at The Vault, Menlyn Park. The Summit 2 Black Steel Milanese Edition goes for about R16 800. Become a watch collector and add the Panerai Luminor Due – 45mm for R362 839 and the A. Lange & Sohne Zeitwerk Striking Time 44.2MM men’s watch from Luxury Time at Menlyn Corporate Park for a striking R935 900.
Get yourself a sweet ride! An Aston Martin Vanquish S Coupe goes for R6 500 000. Add a Rolls-Royce Phantom EWB 2016, which goes for R10 500 000 at Daytona and have them deliver it.

It’s only fair to give a tenth of your winnings to charity. Pretoria has numerous charities that can benefit from a generous donation.

After all this splurging, you might be hungry! Plan ahead and book yourself a professional chef from France. Fly him in with Air France and let him cook you a private dinner. Be sure to book the La Premiere flight cabin for R80 575 and pay him another R20 000 for the dinner.
Last, but not least, bring Pierneef back to his hometown by making an offer to the last buyer of his painting called Farm Jonkershoek with Twin Peaks Beyond. The painting was bought for R20 462 400 in 2017 and it might take some convincing, so why not offer the owner double the amount, which adds up to R40 924 800?
We all know that once the bug bites, it bites properly. While you won by trying your luck, why not push your luck a little further by buying a racehorse?

Then go bid on something crazy like a business lunch for charity with someone like Warren Buffet, which recently went for R36 951 380 online.
