At that BP, WWJ’s Kathryn Larson ran into Royal Oak resident Susan Beber, who was cashing in her $2 winner.

She said she matched only three number, but had had high hopes for a jackpot win. “I thought maybe it was gonna be me, but congratulations!” Beber said, addressing shopkeeper Sadek Elhammi.

The will take home 1% of the $250,000 jackpot, which will likely be divided among the clerks.

Although he didn’t hit the jackpot, Elhammi said he feels like a winner.
