Sandy Bay Newsagency proprietor, Trent Young, said many of his customers have been playing the Monday and Wednesday night Australia Lotto games for years.
"I am glad it has paid off for one of them," Young said.
Young has owned the Newsagency for three years and admitted it was the first time he'd sold a big-win ticket. He now hopes to sell many more.
To play the Australia Lotto players pick six numbers and the lottery provides two bonus numbers for each draw. There are seven ways to win a prize and the game has fixed guaranteed jackpot of AU $1 million.
