    I live about 40 miles from Illinois, and I go over there to get Mega Millions tickets when that jackpot gets big.

      If I had a feeling that a big lottery winning was miles away and that I could win it,  get it , I would drive miles to get it for sure.

        I do, but it isn't too far. It's about a 30 mile round trip for me to go to SC and get PB tickets.

        I actually prefer PB over MM based on the multiplier ...

              Tntea, 

              The Fantasy Five has a drawing everyday. You can mark your betslip to be played up to 14 days thereafter once filled out.

              I don't understand what you mean about playing in advance.

                Everyday (not a vote choice). DC,MD. VA when on the way. I like NJ's P5 the pot grows so quickly but that is GU (geographically undoable), I am just in the D.C. metro area.

                          I used to make the trip to play PB ball, but the last two big jackpots I didn't.    It felt good not to make the trip, especially when the PB  jackpots  were  won clear accross the country.  I gained some control over my lottery spending.

                            Yes. It's about a three hour drive, round trip for us to drive to La. That said, in spring like it is here in deep East Texas, all the trees are in bloom so it's a nice Sunday drive. Powerball unlike Mega Million here, you can play up to 20 draws which is a great help.

                              Yes, when the PB jackpot reaches $250M or so, we drive to Yuma, Arizona or Bullhead City for tickets.  We make it a weekend trip.  That gives us a chance to explore the desert and watch the border patrol do their job.  Sometimes, I take my 2 dogs with me.  Can't take my cat.  She might get lost in the desert.
