VIDEO: What would you do if you won?

WOULD you rather have a wedding like Charles and Di, buy an Amazonian crystal bath or perhaps splash out on a glorious yacht? 

These are some of the questions one lucky person may ponder after numbers for the Powerball $50 million draw are revealed on Thursday night.

Winning the prize would propel the winner to super-rich status, and the super-rich sure know how to enjoy their fortunes.

Petra Ecclestone, daughter of Formula One founder Bernie, spent $164 million - in cash - on her Los Angeles mansion, for instance, Tamara Ecclestone, not to be outdone, spent $1.8 million on a crystal bath and Prince Charles and Di had a $48 million wedding.

But Bendigo residents revealed they had more modest tastes.

Sandra Parker said she would share the money with her family and friends, go on trip around the world and buy a new car.

Ray and Fely Caligdong said they would pay their mortgage and give some money to their children.

"First thing is we pay our mortgage and second is we help our kids," Mr Caligdong said. 

"It would be nice to share with other people as well, to give to charity," said Mrs Caligdong.

When asked whether they would splash out on anything extravagant, the couple laughed. 

"We don't dream about buying luxury cars or anything," Mr Caligdong said.

So, what would you do with $50 million?
