Germany Earns Volkswagen

One person from Ottawa is $32 million richer after a winning the Lotto Max jackpot last week. Here are some of the things they could spend their money on.

6,400 burgers — Really good burgers: The “FleurBurger 5000” made in Las Vegas is one of the most decadent burgers in the world and it comes with a hefty $5,000 price tag. The ingredients: Kobe beef and it comes adorned with foie gras, black truffles on a brioche bun and is served with a bottle of Petrus. And if you choose to be more frugal, you could buy every item on the menu at The Works or Hintonburger.

914 tins of caviar: If the above $5,000 burger wasn’t fancy enough, you could purchase several hundred tins of Almas caviar, priced at roughly $35,000 and referred to as “black gold.” The delicacy is made from the eggs of an Iranian Beluga fish, a rare albino sturgeon that can be found in the Caspian Sea.

12 posh cars: Wake up in a new Bugatti Veyron, a luxury sports car that can hit top speeds of 400 km/h and has an estimated price of more than $2.5 million. Renting a track where you can drive your car at that speed will cost you extra, however.

42,000 bitcoin: Invest your millions in the virtual currency, bitcoin, which is “mined” from computer transactions. The current exchange rate is hovering between $650 and $700 for 1 bitcoin. Earlier this year, an ATM for bitcoins was installed at Clocktower Brew Pub.

7,000 statues: At roughly $4,500 to make each one of the “tree” statues, by designer Jerry Corush, in Jack Purcell Park, you could too could hypothetically own a piece of the city’s public art gaffe. News of the mix-up spread internationally after George Takei, who played Sulu on Star Trek, mocked the blunder to his more than seven million followers on Facebook.
