IPSWICH punters are hoping to begin 2013 as millionaires, with tickets in tonight's massive $30 million Golden Casket draw selling fast.

Golden Casket public relations manager Elissa Lewis advises players to buy their ticket early to avoid disappointment.

"Around one in three Queensland adults already have an entry," she said.

"However, we expect to see that figure increase to around one in two in the hours leading up to the draw."

Katie Brown, of Raceview News, said the multi-million dollar draws always attracted more punters.

"Our customers all gravitate towards the massive draws, particularly around New Year's," she said.

"Everyone wants the nice big lotto win around the new year."

"A lot of people fill out their own numbers; they are usually birthdays or star signs."
