Do you believe in lucky stores or lucky places in general?

I am going to be the odd ball and say I believe some stores are "lucky."  In statistics, things can cluster randomly in certain areas time and time again so I think a few rare stores may be part of a "cluster."

I seem to only discover new clusters of unlucky stores Green laugh

      I heard you should never buy tickets from a store that previously did sell a winning ticket.  As the british would say, "bullocks."  My favorite "spot" sold a 6 million ticket a couple of years ago.....

        Many players have come to LP hoping something or someone here can help them get lucky.

          I started going to a "lucky" store because they posted all the winning scratch-offs they had. Here is where I won my biggest jackpot ever - $500 - in a scratch-off! There was a lucky girl that worked there, but when she left, I noticed I wasn't doing as well anymore. Anyway, a new person bought the store and I stopped going there (besides the fact they had to apply for a license for lottery), the vibe just didn't seem the same.

          Now, I have a feeling my local grocery store is going to win it for me sometime soon. I haven't won anything there other than a few bucks, but I just have a feeling...

          Regardless, I'm still going to buy a few tickets at other stores because I really believe, since I buy QP's, that timing is everything.

            How quick we forget.

            Anyone remember the "Miracle Mile" in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, known for the multiple jackpot winners some stores there sold?

            It was on TLCML programs on TLC, and mentioned in some threads here.

            I think the main store featured has closed.

            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 some stores just sell more tickets so thats why they have more winners. Blue Angel

                  Seems to me if you had to pick a lucky store nationally, it would have to be the Publix chain of food stores in Florida.

                  I heard tell there's one down in Chattanooga too.

                  Maybe I oughta slide on down there and get a ticket.

                    Your right ridge Publix seems to be the "hot" spot. Now I'm going to do a search for the nearest Publix(road trip)Big Grin

                      Good idea, dallas!

                      I just checked and found out there's a couple stores in Knoxville now that would be a lot closer for me than Chattanooga. Still a hike though.

                        I don't know about luck or favorite stores but just came from the store and the cashier noticed on my reciept it was green, which meant it was at the end of the roll. However, I see it as an indicator for LUCK!! So if I win everyone on the thread will get a hundred from me from tonights powerball winnings..  Hurray!

                        Who say's I'm broke? Are you kidding me, I am just waiting on my millions!Dance
