"There is total prize pool of $9.5 million in cash and luxury prizes and on offer is an ultimate lifestyle, which if won this week, would transform someone's life," says Mr McLeay.

In addition, Big Wednesday Second Division has also jackpotted and tomorrow night's prize will be worth more than $438,000.
At tomorrow's draw, Big Wednesday players will be in to win:

"A Big Wednesday First Division winner will never have to look at a price tag again. They'll be able to travel the globe using their luxury travel prize. They'll also have $8 million in the bank and a Porsche and Ranger Rover in their garage, not to mention a luxury launch in the boat harbour and a holiday home to enjoy," says Mr McLeay.
