Sure, the winner (or winners) could play it safe and buy a bundle of million-dollar listings. But why wouldn’t you purchase a couple of palaces, mansions or penthouses if you could?

Drop $62 million on Rob Lowe’s mansion and you’ll still have $88m in change.

According to The Lott spokesperson Ally Ramsamy, a survey of more than 100 Australian lottery division one winners showed that having a debt-free roof over their head was a top priority.

“The first thing the majority of our winners do is buy a new house debt-free or pay off the mortgage. They just can’t wait get that weight off their shoulders,” she said.

Apparently 54 per cent of respondents to the survey said they paid off their mortgage and 20 per cent bought a new house.

While Australia is yet to have a single property list for such a hefty sum, that kind of coin for one individual address won’t set any records in some corners of the globe where luxury residences can sell for twice that.

So whoever bags the huge booty with draw 1218 on Thursday night, whether it’s the full $150 million or even just a portion, we’ve already done the high-end house hunting and dug up some excellently expensive homes on the market from Sydney to Byron Bay and beyond.
