Do you know where you would go in case you had some Bitcoins? Have a look at 6 amazing travels the lucky guy who won 37 Bitcoins at FortuneJack can afford now.

No matter whether it was stroke of luck, or miracle from above, the man, who broke the bank at FortuneJack, walked away with a MIGHTY 37 Bitcoins, all in one hit.

If the slot machine had been real (not virtual) he’d have been listening to the sweet sound of $274,153 silver dollars clattering into the trough. Now interesting to find out, what amazing travels can our hero afford to splash the cash on?

1. Ski the Matterhorn

Join to elite jet-set at Zermat, Switzerland. Nestled in the shadow of one of the world’s most iconic mountains, the Matterhorn, this chic and ever so chill ski resort is the perfect first destination for a man with Bitcoin to burn. Get your very own log cabin chalet, feast on fondue, and soak up the warmth of an open fire. And don’t forget the skiing itself. With some of the world’s best pistes, you can slide right into next door Italy.

2. Ferrari the Amalfi Coast

This 50 km stretch of Italian coastline is universally noted as the most beautiful drive in the world, a single road winding along sheer rugged cliffs with the glistening blue mediterranean ocean below. And there is hardly any better way to experience it than do it in a classic Ferrari 250 GTO. Auction price is still quite expensive even for our Bitcoin hero, but a rental may turn out to be an experience to remember for a lifetime.

3. Snap a Selfie at the Beach

Anse Source d’Argent in the Seychelles is the beach literally everyone has always dreamed of. Turquoise sea, crystal clear waters and a beach like diamond dust. Ifact, there’s a reason this place lingers in people’s dreams – it’s the most photographed beach in the world, which can be seen in a million movies.

4. Up the Stakes in Connecticut

Soak up the spirit of native American tribes, and sink a few shots of spirit as well, at the Foxwoods casino, owned and operated by the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation. Exclusive villa, own butler, and access to some the world’s highest stakes gambling, outside the strictures of US Federal laws: is there any better way to build up your winnings than betting red at the world’s best roulette wheels?

5. Plot the Next Step from Your Island Lair

The magnificent island of Kho Phing Kan will make you wonder where you know it from, and with a good reason. These islands were the secret lair of the assassin Scaramanga in The Man With Golden Gun and have been nicknamed James Bond island ever since. Plan out your next fortune winning play in a secret lair worthy of Satoshi Nakamoto themself.

6. The Final Frontier

William Shatner said it the best – space really is the final frontier. Today one really can buy a ticket to space, although it might be years until a man can claim it. The adventure will cost nearly all of those 37 Bitcoin winnings – $250,000 reservation with Virgin galactic. Nevertheless, it might be worth it: not just as a small step for a man with 37 Bitcoin, but a giant leap for mankind instead.
