Lottery fever? These were the Flint Area spots to win tickets

If you’re like me, you woke up realizing you still had to go to work this morning and you weren’t a millionaire overnight. Two lucky lotto players are mega-rich after hitting the $ 632.6 million jackpot in Wednesday night’s draw. The winning tickets were sold in California and Wisconsin, matching the six numbers: 6 – 14 – 25 – 33 – 46 with a Powerball number of 17.

I still think the same after one of those big jackpots. First, everything I could have done with a major windfall like this, and second, how are these people so lucky? Is it fate, strategy, or just stupid luck? Then I thought, maybe this is where they go to buy their lottery tickets. Is there really a “lucky store”?

While there were a ton of Michigan Lottery winners in and around the Flint area last year, there were only a handful of really big winners, and the handful was actually pretty complete.
