As Lotto fever grips with country, with $50 million having to be won on Saturday night, we had a quick look at what you could do with the winnings.

If struck, it will be Lotto's biggest ever Powerball prize.

The money has to be won, so if no one strikes in first division it will roll down to the next division. If it is not claimed in second division it will go down to third.

But what could you buy if you did strike it lucky with $50m?

Pakatoa Island is still for sale. At a cool $40m, it would still leave you $10m to buy a helicopter and carry out a few renovations on the 62-bedroom property.

If you want to take a more laidback, Kiwi approach, why not buy your own pub?

The iconic Puhoi pub is up for grabs on TradeMe. Throw a price at the owners and you'll be able to stand on the other side of the bar and pour a few pints ... or more likely, hire someone to pour you a pint or wine.

It sits on 6078sq m of freehold land and has accommodation upstairs to sleep 14.

A generous piece of Kiwi history could be all yours; if you get it before tenders close on March 3.
