MODESTO (CBS13) – Hoping to win the $363 million jackpot Tuesday night, Lotto players were flocking to Obrien’s Market in Modesto after the store sold a lucky ticket last week.

On Friday, one of Obrien’s regular customers won $260,000 for picking five out of six winning numbers.

Since then, the store manager says nearly every customer buying groceries has also purchased a Mega Millions ticket and lotto players have come in from as far as Bakersfield.

Richard O’Brien said customers started spending a couple of dollars on tickets and that has changed to a “couple of hundreds of dollars.”

Customers snapping up tickets are hoping “lightening might strike twice at the same place,” as one man said as he made his Lotto purchase.

Another winner would make it three strikes for Obrien’s Market in Roseberg Square. The store sold a $1 million winning ticket back in the 1980s.

    Please! It’s “lightning” not “lightening”. I’ve been seeing this more and more often.
