Owner Haitham Kamposh says having a reputation for selling winning tickets is a boost for future business. “We are a lucky store." he says. "A couple years ago [we sold a ticket] for $35,000 for the instant games. I hope we go for bigger than that in the future.”
The Willow Creek Deli is one of more than two dozen Michigan stores which sold a $50,000 winning ticket. Five more sold tickets valued at $1 million. Kamposh estimates his store sold nearly 7,000 Powerball tickets yesterday.
