Michigan Store Sells its Second $1 Million Lottery Ticket

Michigan LotteryMichigan Lottery: Michigan Store Sells its Second $1 Million Lottery Ticket

Someone in Muskegon County, Michigan, is $1 million richer today, thanks to a lottery ticket.

The 61-year-old Muskegon woman who won wants to remain anonymous.

Lottery officials have confirmed the "Backjack Multiplier" ticket was sold Halloween night at Jack's Corner Store in Muskegon Township, where the winner is a regular customer.

This is the second time someone's won a lottery jackpot from a ticket sold at the store.

"Sometimes people feel that a place has a reputation for being lucky and lightning can strike twice, and obviously it has in this case," said store employee Stephen Graber.

The store's staff says tickets sales went up significantly after both winners.

For selling the winning ticket, Jack's Corner Store will receive $4,000 from the Michigan Lottery Commission.

    Here comes the lines.  His sales percentage is going through the roof.  I hope he pays his taxes; unlike some NY retailers who made the news recently.

    Cheers

      Stores that have sold tickets are bound to have increased business, especially after their store name gets printed in a newspaper.

        When I delivered NY Lottery New$, I tried to target stores that recently had a big winner. During its last few years (LN folded at the end of 2001) it published the names and addresses of NY stores that sold Take Five and NY Lotto first prizes.

          Good because I was just told the other day that I am being silly going to the Leprechaun News because "lightning never strikes twice". Can you say "Boise, Idaho"?
