A True Oasis

As far as lifestyles of the rich and famous go, I guess you could say that I lived vicariously through my brother for a year or two when he started working in the luxury yachting industry. His best adventures were upon the massive 194.9ft (59.4m) superyacht, the Oasis, which traversed the richest islands of the Caribbean and Mediterranean, even dropping in at the Cannes Film Festival for a night of rather eventful partying.

Oasis is a custom motor yacht which was built in 2006 by German company Lürssen Yachts, well known for their many superyachts including Azzam, the largest private yacht in the world at 180m in length. The lavish interior and exterior owe thanks to Glade Johnson Design, who created a feel of elegance including some impressive leisure and entertainment facilities perfect for socials and entertaining.

Oasis can accommodate 12 guests in her dazzling master suite, VIP stateroom, 3 double cabins and 1 twin cabin. The master suite lies on the main deck and boasts a king-size bed, walk-in closets, annexed lounge including a 50-inch plasma screen TV, private office with a further 42-inch plasma TV and a jacuzzi-embellished his and hers marble bathroom. If that isn't enough, the VIP stateroom holds a queen-size bed, another exquisite marble bathroom with a walk-in shower, walk-in closet and its own 42-inch plasma TV.
The double cabins are similarly kitted out, with the twin cabin on the lower deck housing two single beds. All the above accommodation also has an AMX control for all room functions, including music and movies on demand. Oasis also accommodates 15 crew members to ensure a relaxed luxury yacht experience for all guests on board.

The rest of the luxury features include a deck jacuzzi, gym, WiFi access, piano, outdoor cinema and plenty of toys to play with such as 3 jet-skis, 2 segways, 2 kayaks, but to name a few! In the Summer you'll find her cruising the luxury of the Mediterranean, including places such as Monaco (for the Grand Prix), Porto Cervo in Sardinia (for the Rolex cup and other superyacht races), Bonofatio in Italy (where Louise Vuitton has his home), Turkey, St Tropez, Greece, and as mentioned above, Cannes.

In winter the Oasis travels to the Caribbean for a more relaxed atmosphere, including St Bart's where nearly everyone who is anyone spends their Christmas and New Years throwing incredible parties worth hundreds of thousands of dollars.

If you're keen to hop on board chartering this beauty, costs include €345 000 (low season) to €375 000 (high season) per week plus expenses which rounds off to approximately $422 500 to $459 000, for the Mediterranean. If you'd rather spend your days in the Caribbean, then you'd be looking at $399 000 to $420 000 per week plus expenses.

So, what are you waiting for? If you're looking for the perfect luxury holiday, this is probably it!

A Million Dollar Start to 2018

We all celebrate the new year, a fresh start and the anticipation of things to come as we set our goals and go full speed ahead. Now imagine starting 2018 off with a winning lotto ticket, a ticket worth $450 million to be exact.

One lucky and, as yet, still unidentified person has done just that. According to sources, the quick pick winning ticket was bought at a 7-Eleven in Port Richey. The winning numbers were 28, 30, 39, 59 and 70, with the Mega Ball being 10. The odds of matching all five numbers and the Mega Ball? A vast 1 to 302.6 million!

In order to claim the Mega Millions jackpot in Florida, players cannot remain anonymous. They must, perhaps unfortunately, reveal their name, city of residence and details of the winnings. Luckily nothing as specific as their exact street address or phone number!

The winner however has two options when claiming their prize: If they come forward within 180 days they receive an immediate payment followed by increasing annual payments for the next 29 years or if they come forward within 60 days they may claim a full cash pay-out. If the winner in this instance claims the full cash prize they will receive a rather nice sum of $281 million, a sight lower than the actual jackpot but definitely not an amount to scoff at.

This win is also not the only one from Friday night’s draw. In total, 2 935 086 players won prizes across all levels. One winner with a ticket from the same 7-eleven won $100 000; seems like perhaps Port Richey was quite aptly named.

This $450 million win is quite astounding in that it is the fourth largest in Mega Millions history, with the top win being a $656 million jackpot in 2012. It is also the tenth largest prize in any U.S lottery. Now that’s the way to welcome in a new year!

The Mega Millions jackpot was reset to $40 million for the draw today. Don’t miss out!

15 Incredible Lottery Facts
(PART 3)

The lottery does change lives and make dreams come true, along with it are some very interesting facts and drama. Click here to see part one and two of this series of articles. 

11. Cop splits lotto ticket with waitress… and they win!
Police detective Robert Cunningham was just about to leave a tip for Phyllis Penzo, who had been a waitress at his favourite restaurant for 24 years. Instead he offered her the following deal: split whatever the lottery ticket in his pocket might win them. She agreed and the rest is history, they won $6 million together and split the prize after deciding to receive annual payments of $285.715. 

12. An Australian syndicate in the US… in 1992!
An Australian syndicate group manually listed all possible outcomes for a 6/44 lottery in Virginia. They had to buy each ticket separately at the time so they only managed to buy about 5 million tickets at $1 each, out of the possible 7 million different combinations. That was good enough, as the syndicate managed to win the $27 million jackpot, bringing home a net profit of $23 million. Virginia lottery officials were so shocked when they heard what happened, that they wanted to place a ban on such strategies in the future. But the motion fell through and the only law that passed was that sales agents must take care of their clients in line before helping bulk lottery buyers.

13. Man comes back from the dead to win scratch lottery, twice!
Bill Morgan, an Australian truck driver, suffered a fatal heart attack after being crushed in an accident in the late 90's. For 14 minutes he was clinically dead a span of time which most people rarely recover from without neurological or brain damage. He refused to be a statistic and woke up from a medically induced coma after 12 days with all of his faculties perfectly intact. It wasn't long after that Bill Morgan decided to buy a scratch off lottery ticket and ended up winning a car worth $17.0001. A local TV show asked him to re-enact the win for a story which was when he scratched off a ticket and won $170.000! Some people have asked him to try his luck for a 3rd time, but so far bill has refused.

14. Math professor cracks the system, wins millions in scratch lottery
Joan Ginther is considered to be the luckiest woman in the world, after inning multi-million dollar prizes 4 times by playing scratch cards. Being a maths professor the assumption was that she managed to 'crack the system' Ginther has never granted an interview, but we do know all of her wins were in the Texas lotteries high stakes scratch card games, buying her scratch cards 3 times at the same vendor and once at a nearby town.

15. Beating the odds: dying in a car crash or winning the jackpot?
In the USA according to the national centre for health statistics, the odds of fatal injuries while driving are about 1 in 6700 while the odds of winning the jackpot at any lottery are much lower.

15 Incredible Lottery Facts - Part 2

There are some amazing stories, facts and drama in the world of Lottery. If you missed out on last week’s interesting lottery facts then see them here.

5.  Even the Vatican City has lotteries!

At first the papacy was against lotteries in Rome. Popes Innocent XI and XII threatened Catholics with excommunication if they participated in the Italian lotteries, but the lotteries were still as popular as ever with the public. In 1732, the Holy See led by Pope Innocent XIII finally permitted the establishment of an official Roman lottery. Centuries later, the Vatican has more than warmed up to lotteries. Pope Francis, the current pope, held a lottery in January 2015, with funds going to charity. Later in that year another lottery was run to enable 350,000 pilgrims could see him talking in Philadelphia during a visit to the USA.

6. The British Museum was created by lottery funds – and still benefits!
The Heritage Lottery fund gives grants to many British institutions with proceeds from the lottery. One of the world’s best museums was made possible because of the lottery! In 1753, England formed a lottery with the museums creation in mind. More than 250 years later the museum still receives funding in the form of heritage lottery fund grants.

7. Lotteries are a whole lot older than you think
Lotteries have been a part of human history for at least 2114 years, the earliest forms of lottery can be traced as far back as 100 B.C in ancient Rome and the Han Dynasty in china. While no one can say definitively when lotteries began, they certainly are not a new concept. Read more here about the oldest lotteries that exists today.

8. The United States of America was a lottery-funded project
The founding fathers of the US were founding fans of the lottery! Benjamin Franklin established a lottery to pay for a cannon in Philadelphia. George Washington set up many lotteries, though they never succeeded. Thomas Jefferson set up a private lottery to pay off debts. And in 1776, the Continental Congress established lotteries in order to fund the Colonial Army. No wonder Mega Millions and Powerball are so popular – playing the lottery is as patriotic as bald eagles and baseball!

9.  Sometimes lightning does strike twice or thrice

In Norway, three members of the Oksnes family won the lottery three times in six years. A man in Florida, James Bozeman JR. won the Florida lotto twice with tickets he bought at the same 7 eleven store. His total winnings were $13 million. A couple in Virginia won the lottery 3 times in one month. They won $1 million with a Powerball ticket on 12 March 2014, then again on 26 March $50.000 with a Virginia lottery pick 4 ticket, and yet another $1million with a Virginia lottery scratcher ticket the very next day. There are a lot of other examples of lottery luck to prove that people can win the lottery more than once! Read more stories like this here.
