If I play anything QP I go to Stores whose RNGs have produced winners.. often after a store has a big win if it's not too far away I give them a visit. The farthest I have ever visited a store was the C&L Super Serve in Hurricane, WV. I won a Pick 4 BOX that day but NOT from there, it was in RG's in Keyser who maybe never had a big winner. The reason I visit lucky locations is because it's fun and an excuse to visit new places! I'm always curious to know what it feels like to be there and to get souvenirs.
When I visited the SuperServe the only way you knew its significance was the giant banner across the front of the roof. Otherwise it was very quiet there and the one person there was not really impressed that people visited all the way from nj. I got some souvenirs, a CLSS lighter that someone "borrowed" and never gave back, a pack of Juicy Fruit, some Charleston Chews, a newspaper, and Powerball tickets. I couldn't find where the Pink Pony was but the sandwich I had at the Charleston Multifest and the mall in Huntington was worth the long trip.
The Leprechaun News in Rutherford, nj is a lot closer so I visit there often and have won from there several times but not on QP. I like how it smells there and they're more lively and proud of selling the winning ticket. When it was first sold there I visited even before the actual winner turned up but nobody asked me about it and the lone news reporter kept staring toward the train station.
Otherwise, most places I play have sold at least a few hundred thousand winners at some point anyway, and one time I created a "lucky location" with a low-paying 5 of 5 but that was also not QP.
