"On offer is an ultimate lifestyle, capable of transforming someone's life, if they win this week's total prize pool of $11.5 million in cash and luxury prizes," says Mr McLeay.

In addition, Big Wednesday Second Division has also jackpotted and tomorrow night's prize will be worth more than $500,000.
At tomorrow's draw, Big Wednesday players will be in to win:
- $10 million
- Porsche 911 Carrera
- Range Rover Vogue V8
- $50,000 worth of luxury travel every year for five years
- a $250,000 American Express Platinum card
- a Mustang luxury launch and
- a $500,000 Bach.

"Our 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 $10 million in the bank and a Porsche and Range Rover in their garage, not to mention a luxury launch in the boat harbour and a holiday home to enjoy," says Mr McLeay.

Big Wednesday celebrated its first birthday last month and in its first year has paid out over $50 million in prizes and created more than 2.6 million winners, including Big Wednesday's largest winners who won $13.1 million in February 2006.
