"I was as excited as if I was one of the winners myself," she said.
"This syndicate has been running for more than 20 years and we've been playing the same numbers every week.
"Some of the shares are bought every week by our regular customers, and some of the others are sold to other customers who stop by.
"I'm sure the latter are pleased to have bought this entry this week.
"I'll be celebrating in store by putting posters up and telling everyone that drops by that we've sold a division one winning entry.
"I think all of our customers will be thrilled to hear that we've sold another winner.
"We've sold 13 division one or major prizes in the past. The last was in June last year.
"This will be our 14th big win and I am so proud of your store and our customers. Hopefully, there will be more wins to come!
"Congratulations to our division one syndicate winners! I'd like to thank them for their support for such a long time. We always believed one day this syndicate would win and now it has.
"They've already become good friends so I hope they are happy and enjoy their win with their family."
