Party World, 5568 Alpine Ave. NW, co-owner Anna Bekins said a line reached from the counter to the back of the store for parts of the day Tuesday as customers came to try their chance at winning millions.
The store has sold its share of winning tickets, including prizes of $1 million, $300,000 and $100,000 in recent years, Bekins said.
And although the idea sounds crazy to some, Bekins attributes the luck to a four-leaf clover her husband found in the store’s back room shortly after opening 26 years ago. That clover now is taped to the lottery ticket machine, and he makes sure to wipe each customer’s ticket over it before making the sale.
“A lot of people don’t want it wiped even once, but twice. They might even have to touch it themselves,” Bekins said of the clover. “One lady a couple years ago tried to walk out the door with it, but we stopped her.”
Store owners appreciate the increased business large jackpots generate.
