ORLANDO, Fla. – Tasha Thompson believes she has the most luck buying lottery tickets at Rightway Food Store on North Orange Blossom Trail.
“This is the best store to come to because I win all the time here,” Thomson said as she purchased several scratch-off tickets. “(About two years ago), I’m not going to say how much, I won a lot (of money) off two $5 tickets. It was a lot. So this is a good store.”
Data obtained from the Florida Lottery confirms Thompson’s theory, that the 6700 N. Orange Blossom Trail store is the most winning retailer in Central Florida when it comes to large payouts.
Over a two-year period from 2017 to 2018, the Orlando store sold 130 winning tickets with large prizes of $600 or more. That total includes both scratch-off tickets and “draw” games such as Powerball, Mega Millions and Fantasy 5.
Winners who collect prizes of $600 or more must fill out a claim form indicating where the ticket was purchased.
