DENVER - Dreaming of winning that big $450 million Powerball jackpot?
Then you may want to go shopping at the stores that have sold the most, big prize-winning tickets.
We looked at the statistics for winners, over $10,000, in the last three years and we asked the Colorado Lottery for help. Lottery officials said three retailers on the Front Range, all of them King Soopers stores, have sold multiple winning tickets.
The King Soopers at 4503 John F Kennedy Parkway, in Fort Collins, has sold four big Powerball winning tickets with a total pay out of $2,250,000. The last one was in December 2013.
The King Soopers at 8673 S. Quebec Street, in Highlands Ranch, has sold three big winning tickets for a total pay out of $2,020,000. The last big winning ticket was sold a week after the winner in Fort Collins in December 2013.
The King Soopers at 121st and Sheridan, in Broomfield, has also sold three big winning tickets for a total pay out of $2,020,000. Their last big winning ticket was sold in December 2013.
A King Soopers, on S. Holly Street in Greenwood Village, sold the last multi-million dollar winning ticket in Colorado. They sold a ticket that won $2 million in the January 26th drawing.
Colorado has had two people win the Powerball jackpot. A man in Rifle won $90 million last year. He bought his ticket at the Kum & Go on 26th Street in Rifle.
Back in 2007, two couples claimed a $20 million jackpot under the name of SEEP Financial. The winners were originally from Poland and legally immigrated to the United States from Germany. They had lived in Colorado for five years before they won Powerball. They bought their ticket at a Safeway in Westminster.
