The super winning store is on the Miracle Mile in Fond du Lac WI now closing.

They have already stopped selling lottery tickets and gas. According to an article.

Apparently they changed owners in 2010 and now it's running out of business.

          Bummer, bet there's a lot of disappointed players.

          Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

          There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                I think that is so very sad.  I thought their Son would take over running the store.

                  That's sad.  We drove through there and stopped at their store a couple of years ago... it was pretty much 'a buzz' with lottery fever back then.  I figured that place was a gold mine... the new owners musta really done a poor job to loose all those loyal customers who wanted to play from their store.

                      Apparently a family in the area that runs two other stores bought it so it's staying open. I think I read they bought it the day after they closed.

                        Maybe the luck from this store will move to a new location,

                        like one of the stores I go to. LOL
