Find CA Lottery's Luckiest Retailers in SoCal



    Southern California has Powerball fever. A record jackpot of $1.5 billion is on the line. Adrian Arambulo reports for the NBC4 News at Noon on Wednesday, Jan. 12, 2016. (Published Wednesday, Jan. 13, 2016)

    If you're rolling the dice at a chance to bag the staggering Powerball jackpot, you may as well hedge your bets. 

    The next jackpot has soared to a jaw-dropping $1.5 billion, Multi-State Lottery Association officials said. The CA Lottery keeps a list of the luckiest retailers in California. 

    They provide historical lucky retailers: These are places that have sold at least two winning tickets with jackpots of $1 million or more since 2013.

    It should be no big surprise that Hawthorne's Bluebird Liquor is on the list, having sold four winning tickets. Lottery hopefuls still rub the bluebird statue after they buy their tickets for good luck.
