One store owner has experience in selling winning tickets

SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. – Bulbul Ahmed is feeling lucky because he’s sold winning tickets at his convenience store in Casselberry.

He’s hoping someone will walk out with the Mega Millions prize of 750 Million, one of the largest lottery jackpots in history.

“The people, when they go bigger amount, the people buy more. People will spend more money,” Ahmed said.

“If you believe or not believe, please try your luck. You never know,” Vinay Shukla said.

Shukla owns Liquor 2000 in Lake Mary and he too has sold some winning tickets before. He’s also buying some tickets for himself.

“I’m going to buy some 10 to 15 tickets at least. Gotta take a chance right?” Shukla said.

The drawing for the Mega Millions is on Friday night.
