Hi, I was just wondering when people buy there upcoming lottery tickets? Do you buy them a week in advance, a few days before, the day of or at the last minute?

I'm a last minute person. I never really think about it untill about an hour or two before the drawing then have to rush to the store to get them.

Is there a better time then another or any time is good?

Thanks :)

    I buy 2 weeks in advance, well when i get paid, and buy 2 weeks worth. for the regulars. some jackpot games i now hold off till the pot is higher as i dont think i should reward them  for offering such poor starting pots,. so hold off till they get higher. usually 10 mill for 45m to 1 odds.

    i can sometimes get bored and think " hell ill put  ticket on tonight" , and race off only to miss the close off.

      I buy my tickets a few days in advance. I don't want to miss the cut off time.

              Always buy your tickets at least an hour before the cutoff. 

              That way you will have time to adapt to obstacles.

              When you walk to the store and the machine is down, then you have to walk back home to your car, and then drive somewhere else, all wasted time.

              You need the extra time for challenges.

              One day you will get to the store with winning numbers on your slip, either there will be a new clerk who doesn't have a clue, or there will be a LONG line of newbie wannabee gamblers, or you will have an argument with the clerk and he will just plain refuse you service, and you know what?? you will be just plain FU**KED

              You better prepare for that day by NOT waiting until the last minute.

                  OMG I mix it up soooo much...I used to transport cars for a rental company and sometimes I'd buy tickets in every town I passed thru LOL

                  Usually i'll buy tickets the day of every Tues, Wed Sat and Friday no matter how much the jackpots is...but When it gets over 300 million....I buy tickets every day from drawing to drawing as long as it rolls until someone hits the jackpot .....then its back to buying them  for every drawing four times a week for powerball and megamillions. Im hoping Im going to hit sometime soon LOL

                    Generally when the Moon is in the Seventh House, Mercury is in it's third ascension, and when Jupiter is in full conjunction with Saturn.    Thumbs Up

                    In a pinch however, I'll settle for a Tuesday, Wednesday or Friday evening.

                        It does not matter when you buy your tickets. You will win if you are meant to win. You have to play to win.

                        ALL YOU NEED IS 1 LOTTERY TICKET AND A DREAM.

                          That would coincide with the 1st ascension of Mars, in direct retrograde opposition to Uranus and Neptune. A perfect time to buy your tickets!

                              I love season tickets and the advanced play feature. So that tells you I don't like rushing to the store to buy a ticket.

                              If I happen to be at the store buying gas or groceries I will buy a ticket or two. Rarely when I feel lucky I will go to the

                              store with the sole mission of buying lottery tickets. Did I say rarely? I rarely feel lucky.

                              Alright, my turn.
