This Little Store is the Luckiest Lottery Store in Michigan [VIDEO]
So, it's not that the odds of winning the lottery are against me, I've just been buying my tickets at the wrong store, right? (No offense to K & M Party Store in Gaines, where I occasionally score my heretofore non-winning tickets.)
There is one lottery retailer that is being called the 'Luckiest Lottery Store in Michigan' as it has sold what is believed to be more winning tickets than any other store in the state. Party World convenience store in Comstock Park has sold eight jackpot-winning tickets in the last 15 years, for a combined payout of $62 million.
What makes this store located just north of Grand Rapids so lucky? There's a popular belief in the community of about 10,000 residents that it's all thanks to a four-leaf clover that was found behind the building in 2005.
A spokesman for the store tells WZZM that soon after the find, the store sold a winning instant ticket that was worth $300,000, awarded a $1 million raffle prize, and then sold a ticket to a customer who was part of a $57 million Mega Millions payout.
"We talked to the gal who is the head of PR for the state of Michigan lottery office and she said we are probably the luckiest store in Michigan," he said.
The jackpot for tonight's (1/12) Mega Millions drawing has climbed to $615 million while tomorrow night's PowerBall jackpot now stands at $550 million.
The odds of winning? For the Mega Millions, it's about 1 in 302 million. Your odds of taking home the PowerBall prize are about one in 292 million.
