    Yes I travel to other states to play the lottery.

    I guess you could call it a trow back from when my state did not have a lottery.


    When The jack pot grows to a large amount.

    I get Lotto fever just like most other people who play the Lottery.


    100 Million is a good reason to travel a few miles to pick up lotto ticket.

      i'd travel to arkansas or mississippi but i don't think either one will get a lottery soon.arkansas would be the best bet to get one though...

        Wasn't this just asked a week or four ago ?

        I know I replied 'the chances of you getting killed in an accident traveling to and from another state are in the area of 5 times more likely than winning a jackpot'.  This takes into effect traveling to another state specifically to play the lottery as opposed to going to another state for other reasons, and getting tickets while you are there as happenstance....   JMO

        No.

            Mike, I apologize for going a bit off-topic.

            My reply is no, I would not travel to another state, but I know some do.

              When I lived in KY I used to go to IL to play Mega Millions but now that I live in TN I really don't have the time to go up there. Also, I live on the KY/TN border so I travel to another state just about everyday to play. I mainly play KY though. KY has better a payout on Pick 3. I'm originally from Illinois on the Iowa/Illinois border and when ever I go back home I play Iowa pick 3 and pick 4 because they use Illinois numbers and pay more.

              I love doubles and remember, it's just a game!!!!!!

                Absolutely positively, I go to other states. It's probably my favorite, legal thing to do.

                  I don't do it often.  However, if I'm in another state with a lottery I do stop and play.  If that state has PB I usually dont play because that's what we have in TN.  However, I do like to try their scratch offs.

                  How are you going to win if you don't play?
