To be honest it will not matter because NY state rarely wins the 1st prize multi state jackpot ,the Mega is an example,NY state has bad luck.

      Of course, it depends how close the New York resident lives to Connecticut, Vermont or Pennsylvania.  Because if they can drive once a month (buying 'advance plays' for next 10 games), each of these states charges a lower "Lottery Tax" than New York does, so they will NET MORE $$$.

      State Lottery Tax is:  Connecticut = 5%, Vermont = 6%, or Pennsylvania = 0% NOTHING

      So, strive to drive to Pennsylvania after every 10 drawings, where winning tickets are State Taxed at an exciting 0% I Agree!

          What!?? If you say NY has bad luck when it comes to MM jackpots what will you say about Massachusetts?? Ever since I moved to MA about 6 years ago only 1 jackpot has been won, 1!! otoh NJ is the haven for jackpots.
