We've told you many times to get your lottery tickets at one of the 10 Smokes 4 Less locations - which are located 70 miles or so south of Albany - as yet another big winner came from the luckiest lotto shop in the country!

Their latest winner, a 3rd place Powerball ticket worth $100,000 was sold at Smokes 4 Less this week and they seemingly have winners every month.

According to the New York Lottery, the latest was a winning $100K ticket from Monday's Powerball drawing that was purchased at the Smokes 4 Less in Newburgh, N.Y.

The winning numbers for Monday’s Powerball drawing are white balls 9-10-36-46-52 and red Powerball 14.

The $100K winner (whose name hasn't been announced) had four matching numbers and a Powerball.

Back in January, we told you about the million-dollar lottery jackpot that came from Smokes 4 Less from the same store, located in Newburgh.

According to the New York Lottery, the winner was from Ballston Spa, but because they've chosen to remain anonymous, they're simply identified as "11102023 Trust" which numerically is January 10, 2023 - the night they won $3M dollars.

There were 14-second prize winners of $1M dollars nationwide - and once again, one of those tickets was sold at a Smokes 4 Less!  Unreal

There are literally a million places you can buy your lottery tickets across the country - not to mention an app that lets you buy a ticket and this is the second time in one week the Newburgh store popped a big winner.

What's up with the "lucky" convenience store that sold the ticket: Smokes 4 Less.

There are a total of ten "Smokes 4 Less" convenience stores in New York.

To put it in perspective, there are roughly 450 Stewart's and Cumberland Farms stores in New York - not to mention tens of thousands of other outlets across the country for people to buy their lotto tickets.

The odds that one convenience store could have multiple winners in just a few short months are hard to fathom.

Smokes for Less had at least half a dozen or more massive payouts from either Mega, Powerball, or scratch-offs within the last year or so with big winners claiming prizes in January, February, and April of 2022 in addition to the big winners in 2023.

In April of 2022, we wrote about the store after learning it sold a piece of a $22M Powerball jackpot.

That Powerball winner claimed $1M dollars for second place!
