It’s the conversation starter that can come up at the dinner table, parties, or in the break room at work — ‘what would you do if you won the lottery?’. 

Last financial year, 131.8 million winning entries took home more than $3.3 billion in prize money and all of our division one winners have had to contemplate a very real answer to that question.

And we’ve loved hearing their responses! 

From renovations, sharing with family, and going dancing in the street — here’s what some of our recent major prize winners have told us they’re going to do.
