TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) -  The Quick Trip on Ina Road is considered to be lucky after someone won $1 million from a ticket they bought there last January. Today, store on the northwest side has been buzzing all day long with billionaire hopefuls.

Although some people bought into the idea of a lucky store, others say they don't believe it.

"I just kind of let the machine, from what I've read online, let the machine pick the numbers," said Almada Juan.

According to lottery experts, your chances of winning are still one in 292 million, regardless of where you buy your ticket. But, if you are looking for a "lucky store" to buy tickets from, there are a few around town.

The Quick Trip on Ina and Thornydale, the Fry's down the road on Ina and a T & T market on south 6th Avenue have all sold winning tickets with a $1 million prize.
