The newsagency owner Paul Fancett said it had been a while since his outlet sold a major prize winner.
Weve never had a win as big as this!, Fancett told lotto officials.
Our previous largest win was $1 million, so this certainly blows that out of the water.
Well have to think about how we will celebrate this news in store, but we will definitely be doing some celebrating!
We are absolutely thrilled for our customer. We hope they check their ticket soon and realise they have won!

The Lott spokesperson Bronwyn Spencer said winners may have different reasons for not checking their tickets.
The reason for the delay in coming forward varies from player to player, she explained.
Previous winners have told us that despite hearing of a massive win, they simply did not think it could happen to them, so they didnt check their ticket.
Other winners have explained that they thought they purchased it at a different outlet or into a separate draw, while others had forgotten entirely they had purchased one at all.
Even if you dont think youve won, or you think you purchased it at another outlet or for another draw, make sure you check your ticket.
There are eighty million reasons why you should!
The mystery winner now shares the title of Australias third-biggest lottery winner.
The winning numbers in Powerballs draw 1260 on Thursday July 9 2020 were 33, 2, 32, 31, 28, 21 and 26, with a Powerball of 12.
