If You Play Lottery Games, There is a Luckiest Albertsons
If you play Idaho Lottery games, you likely have strategies for what game, what numbers, even where to pick up your tickets. You aren’t crazy. Some stores seem to have more luck.
I was reading the Idaho Statesman and their coverage of a Boise woman who taken home a $103,000 jackpot in the Idaho Cash game.
Her name is Yvonne Gray, and she came forward this week to claim her prize. Lottery officials often share more background on winners, including where they purchased their tickets.
In this case, the winning ticket was picked up at Albertsons at Ustick and Five Mile roads, and this particular store has earned the nickname the “luckiest” Albertsons in Idaho. Gray’s win makes the fourth that was six-figures or higher.
It makes sense, since the store is the number one location for draw game sales in the state. The Statesman talked to Lottery spokesman David Workman who said, “With higher sales volume, they are more likely to have an increased number of winning tickets at all prize points.”
It makes sense they would see more winners with more sales, but if you’re a dedicated lottery player, anything that increases your “luck” can matter. Maybe a trip to Albertsons at Ustick and Five Mile is in the plans before the next drawing?

Albertson’s Sells Lucky Lotto Ticket
For one shopper, it seems, Albertson’s is lucky.
A lottery ticket purchased at one of the food retailer’s stores on Reino Road was one of two tickets that matched all six numbers drawn Wednesday night for Super Lotto, worth an estimated $22 million, said officials with the California Lottery. The ticket holder had not stepped forward as of late Thursday, lottery officials said.
The winner opted for an immediate cash payment, instead of the 26 annual payments. Under the lump sum payment option, the ticket holder will get about $5 million, lottery officials said.
The manager of the Albertson’s supermarket, a former Lucky store, declined to comment.
Lottery officials said the winner has 180 days to claim the cash prize. Chances are, officials said, the ticket holder hasn’t checked the results of the drawing yet.
“It’s probably a busy person who works like everybody else,” said spokeswoman Norma Minas.
The winning numbers were: 9, 12, 20, 22, 28, 45. The other winning ticket was purchased in Van Nuys.
