An Astoria convenience and smoke store that sold a $1 million lottery ticket has been seeing a boom in business this weekend from customers hoping the shop will also bring them luck.

“I never thought selling the winning ticket would bring so many people in,” said clerk Saadain Shabbir, 18, at High Rollers Smoke Vape & Convenience. “They usually say it’s the lucky place.”

The shop, located at 33-22 21st St., sold the ticket that scored second prize in Friday’s Mega Millions drawing.
