Hi everyone!!!!!

I JUST LOVE THIS WEBSITE!!!!! I was just wondering if you had a better chance of winning a MM or PB jackpot if you buy your tickets the day of the drawing instead of buying say a couple days in advance. Most of the stories that I've read of lottery winners seem to buy their tickets at the last minute before the drawing happens. I've never heard of anyone winning a jackpot off of an advance play either.  What do you all think and  rdgrnr PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE REPLY TO MY POST you are just too funny for words. Big SmileBig SmileBig Smile

Thanks everyone!!!!!!

        No the numbers they draw don't care what time you buy the ticket.

        Big John says. You don't hit the number. The number hits you!!!!

          I don't know about that, 44.

          They seem to know when I buy 'em cuz they usually give me the same results every time.

          It's like they're waitin' for me.

            I usually buy my tickets one or two days before the drawing and have yet to win.  But their is still a chance I will win as long as I have a ticket.-weshar75

              I don't see any possible reason when you buy your ticket that it should affect the outcome. Stories you've read are just coincidence.

                        Yes, you are correct, but maybe she is asking the wrong question. My wife often tell me that I am bossy!  Smash

                         

                        I just hope that this information is useful.

                         

                        My answer to her question no. What is, is and nothing more.

                             ive often wondered the same thing OP. So much that my delusions have driven me to buy my tix the day before or at least the next day or two after it rolls. I always think the winner bought their ticket at a certain time, time is what has to be in your favor. i

                            i didnt know most winners bought them at the last minute, it always seemed like an spontaneous afterthought if that makes sense lol.
