What would you do if you won the lotto jackpot?

WOULDN'T it be nice?

What would you do if you opened your bank account and found $50 million?

The countdown to 2016 is on and with it comes the chance to start the New Year with a share in Thursday's $50 Million Powerball jackpot or Gold Lotto's $30 Million Megadraw on January 2.

After six weeks of jackpotting the Powerball division one prize pool has reached an out-of-this-world $50 million for Thursday's draw.

Golden Casket spokesperson Belinda McDougall said at this time of year people were writing down their New Year's resolutions and thinking about the changes they'd like to make in 2016.

"With a share in Gold Lotto's $30 Million Megadraw, just imagine how you could super-size your 2016 aspirations," Ms McDougall said.

"Golden Casket recently asked Queenslanders how they would most like to change their lifestyle if they won $1 million in the lottery, and the top responses were to spend more time with family and friends (42%) and to travel (31.4%), while 10.6% would like to start or do more volunteering.

"We are anticipating plenty of interest in Gold Lotto's $30 Million Megadraw, so we encourage customers to get in early and purchase an entry for their chance to start 2016 with a share in the massive $30 million division one prize pool."
