Residents in the central Wisconsin city of Fond du Lac are considered the luckiest souls in America, at least when it comes to playing the lottery.

Convenience stores on a strip of South Main Street in Fond du Lac, dubbed ‘The Miracle Mile’ have sold more than $300 million in winning lottery tickets.

In the 1990s, several grocery and convenience stores on a stretch of South Main Street in Fond du Lac sold large winning Wisconsin Lottery tickets, resulting in that part of Main Street being dubbed “The Miracle Mile.” The first ticket, sold by Sentry Grocery Store (now closed), was for over $100 million and was won on July 6, 1993, by then Sabish Junior High (now middle school) English teacher, Les Robbins, and his then-fiancee, Colleen DeVries.

On August 5, 2006, Ma and Pa’s Grocery Express, which is in the heart of the Miracle Mile, sold the only winning Powerball ticket for $209 million. The ticket was claimed on September 22, 2006 by 100 factory workers from Sargento Cheese in Plymouth, Wisconsin. Another group of Sargento employees also won a $10,000 prize in August 2007.
