Hemraj INT  Hemraj's Lotto Store

One of the key locations in the story of MEGABALL$ is a tiny, messy lotto store. It’s modeled after one in my neighborhood on West 72nd Street. The inside is so tight that a customer going in needs to wait for the customer inside to leave. Seriously. There’s two shots we stole above, with Oroloro partner Joe Cirillo standing just inside.

On my recent trip to Vienna, I found this little store directly behind the St. Stephen’s Cathedral. Take a look at the sign, below – they have been selling lotto since 1752. This shop is also tiny. (Maybe we could shoot there?). Yes, I bought a lotto ticket.


Then there’s this little store I stumbled across on East 57th Street. I had to go in a buy a few lotto tickets there.
