With a $32 million Powerball jackpot up for grabs this Wednesday night, Lotto outlets in Whanganui have been selling plenty of tickets.

"We have been flat out all afternoon," said Donna Burns at Trafalgar Lotto Shop.

"It hasn't really stopped."

Only two players in the history of Powerball have ever won a prize over $32 million.


Once you've done all the sensible stuff like paying off the mortgage, what could a new Powerball millionaire set their sights on?

Lotto have compiled a list of options for a potential winner to spend the money on.

Here are a few ideas:

A Kiwi summer is not complete without some Kiwi tunes. Why not have Lorde perform at your next backyard BBQ for around $300,000?

With Christmas right around the corner, your next move might be to take the kids on a trip-of-a-lifetime to visit Santa's Village in Finland.
An arctic adventure would cost around $45,000, where you can admire the Northern Lights from the comfort of your bed in a glass igloo.

Are you a Football fan? Then you could jump on a plane to support the All Whites as they take on Peru in the second World Cup qualifier.

Put your money where your mouth is and give Dunedin's chocolate factory fundraising effort a boost. Match the already $2 million raised by the New Zealand public to keep chocolate being made in the south.

Sail the high seas in luxury in the Owner's Suite of a luxury around-the-world cruise ship. 180 days at sea will set you back just over $195,000.

The first thing to do is buy a ticket before 7pm.
