PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. — Talk about crazy odds!

Two winning Fantasy 5 tickets from Sunday night's drawing were sold at the same Port St. Lucie gas station, according to the Florida Lottery.

The lucky spot is a Citgo, located at 285 NW St. James Dr. Two other winning tickets were sold in Fort Myers and Pensacola.

"It's pretty cool," said Louay Hamdan, the owner of the gas station. "I never knew that you could actually do that."

Hamdan, who's owned the store since 2015, said the winning tickets were sold on Sunday night.

"It's a lucky store," said Hamdan.

The winning numbers are 6, 16, 24, 28, and 35.

The Florida Lottery says the players who bought their tickets in Port St. Lucie have not come forward yet.

"Hopefully they can make an investment and make some more money," said Hamdan. "Hopefully whoever won needed that money."

The jackpot is $41,091.66 for each winner.
