has anyone ever moved to another state or visited for a while just for the fact that you thought you had a good shot at winning the games?

    Call me crazy but if megamillions goes over $100M I usually take a trip to Georgia with a buddy or two. Although we haven't done so this year.

     

     In the past we've even hit South Carolina once or twice. As far as having a good shot that was the purpose of the trip(s)! You can't win without at least one ticket in hand.

     

     If Florida was to join powerball it would certainly make life easier and cheaper for those very rare occasions where powerball hits the $100M road trip minimum!

      If I could figure out a jackpot or pick-5 game to the point where I could win major money...I would consider moving to that state.

        I'm not moving out of charm city to play the games, but when in neighboring states i have bought tickets and will continue to buy tickets in whichever state i might be in.

          Once any jackpot is worth spending extra time or money to win, someone wins it within 5 draws, so why move to play a game for a couple of weeks when you can do the same thing with a couple of trips?  Besides, once it's won, it'll be sometime before it's that big again and there's always going to be a bigger jackpot somewhere else.  Now if it was a game like that 6/25 game of West Virginia with odds 1:177K of winning $25K four days a week and I had an affordable system that had beat it several times in a month on paper, I might consider visiting my aunt for a few weeks to play, but I have to think someone has already tried that and failed or the game would have changed.

            Once when I went to visit a friend in CT I played Powerball.

                i would go to WV to play their games. cash25 is a really easy game to win at.

                I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

                    what i like about the game is that $5 covers the wntire matrix.

                        I know it's crazy.  But I think I have a better chance of winning too.

                        I recently took a trip to Chicago and had a 3 hour layover in Atlanta.  So I decided to leave the airport on the public transportation train and ended up in a big mall with lots of food places and some convenient stores.  I got a Mega Millions and a Lotto South.  While in IL, I got some tickets.  And even more recently I took a trip to CA and got to play TX, AZ, and CA lottery.  We didn't stop in NM =( so I didn't get to play there.  Fortunately I'm only 30 miles from TX so I can play if I want.

                          Now that would be a great trip. A lotto tour. Here in the Northeast that's really easy to do.
