Another winning lotto ticket sold in Center Moriches


Center Moriches might be the luckiest town on Long Island.

Yes, because of its close proximity to the bay, and its charming Main Street — but, we’re talking literally.

The small South Shore hamlet just sold its third winning lottery ticket since September, according to the New York Lottery.

On Wednesday, a patron of Center Moriches’ Main Street Mart — a smoke shop and convenience store at a Coastal gas station — bought a third-place Powerball ticket. The ticket cashed at $50,000.

A few months earlier, in September, the same shop, which is located at 230 Main Street, sold another third-prize winning Powerball ticket. That one also was for $50,000. The drawing was on Sept. 23.

And, to top it off, last month, a lucky Center Moriches King Kullen shopper racked in $20,972.50, after winning the top prize of the TAKE 5  midday drawing on Jan. 5.

Not bad.

Stay tuned with, we’ll keep you posted if the lucky streak continues in Center Moriches.
