Gavrilovski is the most recent lucky Lottery winner to purchase a winning ticket at Lens Party Store. The store has sold over $493,000 in top-prize winning tickets in just the past three years.
"I like to see people win," said Mike Hunter, co-owner of Lens Party Store. "It makes me and the rest of the staff feel good to see our customers rake in the bucks!"
