A Tocumwal retiree celebrated winning more than $594,000 in the lottery with a cold beer.
The NSW man held one of seven division one winning entries in Saturday's Lotto, but only discovered he'd won more than half a million dollars on Monday.
"My next door neighbour came over this morning and told me someone in the region had won division one," he told lottery officials.
"Then we checked the ticket and sure enough it was us!
"My wife cried. It's crazy. I'm still shaking like a leaf."

The retiree, who wishes to remain anonymous, said his wife would decide how the money was spent.
"You better ask my wife what she wants to do with it, no good asking me," he said.
"We will probably do some renovations around the home.
"But first, we will be having a nice cold beer to calm down and celebrate."
