Would anyone believe I'm playing 3 different states' lotteries tonight.

Last week, I went on a trip to Boise, Idaho and played Wild Card and Hot Lotto.  I didn't win Wednesday, but I did pick up tickets just before leaving for tonight's drawings.

On the way home Thursday, I had a lay over in Denver, and found a currency exchange stand selling Colorado Lottery tickets so I bought a Lotto ticket with a prize amount of $2.4 million.  In addition, I picked up my usual Louisiana Lotto and Easy 5 tickets when I got home.

3 lotteries, 3 different states, I look forward to the results.

    Good luck! I am playing Wild Card 2 and Powerball tonight, but decided against Hot Lotto.

      I decided to try them because my state doesn't offer them.  Powerball was available in Idaho and Colorado, but since I can get that game here in Louisiana, I decided to pass on it.  I also played Wildcard and Hot Lotto on Wednesday but didn't win on either, oh well.

      I never thought I'd be playing 3 states' lotteries at once.

          I've played in more lotteries in one day, but not even close to the distance between those 3 states.  I live around 240 miles from Niagara Falls have bought tickets in Ohio, PA, NY, and Ontario all in same day.

            Wow!  If I did that at today's gasoline prices, I'd be pretty mad if I didn't get any winning tickets!   

            I had planned to buy Idaho lottery tickets on my business trip when I found out there were some games there not offered in Louisiana(Wild Card 2 and Hot Lotto), and a search for retailers on their website showed me one a couple of blocks from my hotel, so I figured why not give it a shot.

            The Colorado tickets weren't planned.  My plane landed in the Denver airport and while I was looking for a place to eat, I saw the currency exchange booth selling Colorado Lottery tickets so I figured why not?  I wish I had been able to do my reserach ahead of time because a trip to the Colorado Lottery website after getting home showed some other games that might have been fun to try.

            I'll know by tomorrow if my purchases paid off.
