"Maybe I'll celebrate with a nice bottle of scotch over the weekend."
Blayney Newsagency owner Sharryn Kearney said it was such a thrill to sell a first prize winning entry.
"It's so exciting to see this prize go to a local out here in Blayney!" she said.
"We've had a few big prizes land out here before but we haven't sold a major prize winning entry in a long time so this is very exciting!
Ms Kearney said it is great for locals to see that lottery wins do land in small country towns.
"We're hoping lightning strikes twice," she said.
