£5,000 is a large sum of money and while many may sensibly consider spending that amount on something practical – such as a loan repayment, investment or towards a car – wouldn’t it be great to make one single extravagant purchase?
At the 888ladies bingo site you could be £5,000 better off by playing one of our jackpot games, and if you are lucky enough to win, here are five extravagant things you could spend your money on in one go.
Literally translated as Little Lion, this dog of German origin is one of the rarest and most expensive pooches in the world. It has a pretty odd appearance, with a long, hairy coat covering its front legs, while its hind legs are shaved – in olden days this provided the owner close skin-to-skin contact with the dog for warmth.
Of course, the Lowchen’s price tag reflects its rarity and this pup will set you back between £5,000 and £8,000.
Yes, you guessed correctly, the Fleurburger is a burger and it really does cost thousands of pounds. Although to be fair, it isn’t £5,000 but $5,000 (£3,230) which means you would have a bit of change from your jackpot win to get some fries too.
But what’s so special about the Fleurburger, you ask? Created by chef Hubert Keller, it’s made from some of the finest ingredients known to man – Kobe beef (a Japanese speciality that costs a fortune), foie gras and truffle sauce, served on a brioche truffle bun with truffles on the side. How many McDonald’s cheeseburgers could you get for the same price, we wonder?
The Hermes Victoria II bag
It may not be so shocking to learn that you can buy a handbag for £5,000 and that’s about how much the Hermes Victoria II handbag will set you back (£4,790 to be precise).
Designed by luxury house Hermes, this handbag is made from black taurillon clemence leather and lined with canvas. It’s been a popular choice for a long time and has, of course, graced the arm of many a celebrity.
Fine wine can set you back a pretty penny, especially if you get a bottle from a vintage year, but how about wine laced with real silver? Sounds utterly decadent, doesn’t it?
If you want to follow in the footsteps of Madonna, who is a fan, then you’ll need to contact Artesanos del Vino in Spain and ask them to ship some over for you. The Queen of Pop splashed out on 25 bottles of the stuff, which is made by mixing a liquor containing silver dust into a sparkling rose.
The Goring Hotel
The name may make it sound like something out of a horror film, but the Goring Hotel in London offers true luxury and the ultimate in style.
With previous guests including Kate Middleton, you can expect one night at the Goring to leave you with little change from your £5,000 bingo win, especially if you choose to stay in the aptly-named Royal Suite.
The four room apartment stretches across one whole floor of the hotel, overlooks private gardens and boasts magnificent panoramic views over London – if you want a taste of the high life, this is the place to come.
