When you sit back on a Saturday morning, sipping your coffee and daydreaming about what you could do if you become a millionaire, the possibilities seem endless.
With the $30 Million* Megadraw fast approaching on Saturday, 29 December, the Lott have put together a list of 30 things you could do if you won $1 million to help spark your imagination about how different 2019 could be if you shared in the $30 Million* division one prize.
1. Fly first class
Sitting at the pointy end of the plane is a fantasy most of us will never get to experience but with a division one win you could make turning left a frequent occurrence when you (and even your family and friends) become a first-class regular.
A division one Lotto win could afford you the time to study that degree you’ve always wanted. Whether you grew up wanting to be an architect or a teacher, let your win help you release your career dreams!

Not only would you be able to treat yourself to the latest luxury caravan but you would also have the bonus of endless time to sit back relax, and really see the sites of this beautiful country we call home!
6. Help family and friends
Whether you’ve always dreamed of paying off your children’s mortgage, taking your parents on a holiday, or treating your best friend to their dream car, you could have the money to put a smile on the face of everyone on the top of your Lotto List!

Invite your favourite people in the world to watch the ball drop and bring in the New Year with a bang in a New York City penthouse.
