The Mega Millions jackpot has grown to a record high.  Friday's drawing is $500 $540 $640 million, making it the biggest lottery jackpot in North American history.

If a half a billion dollars is enough to motivate you to head out to get a ticket, why not maximize your chances and get your ticket at one of West Michigan's luckiest stores?

Tuesday's Mega Millions jackpot was $363 million.  47 people across the country correctly picked 5 numbers, but missed the Mega Ball number.  Don't feel too bad, they still won $250,000 each.

2 of those winners were from Michigan, including one who bought their ticket at the Meijer on Clyde Park in Wyoming.  Maybe Wednesday's winning ticket was just the opening act?

Meijer on Clyde Park may be a little lucky, but Party World on Alpine Avenue in Alpine Township is a LOT lucky.

Party World has sold seven winning tickets with major jackpots in the last three years.  Seven!  Is it the four-leaf clover that they found on the property and keep on the lottery machine?  Is the run over now that they've hit lucky number seven?  I don't know, but I'd suggest buying a ticket at Party World...if you're feeling lucky.

Friday's drawing is at 11:00pm.  Good luck!
