I usually check the media section of the Florida Lottery site to see where the winning Fantasy 5 tickets were purchased.  From what I've read, the majority of winning tickets are bought in Miami-Dade County. 

Today I checked the news and Fantasy 5 was won by 3 people winning approx $82K each.  One of the winning tickets was from the Telogia Grocery.  I thought I knew most of the small towns in FL, but I never heard of Telogia.  So I used Google and still couldn't find much information.  I tried Telogia Real Estate and got nothing - oh there was one mobile home on 40 acres for $265,000.   So I finally checked the zip code on mapquest and it's a town 475 miles from here, population 21.  So I guess not only people in big cities win!  Yes Nod

(By the way, 1 of the 3 winners was from Miami!)

    Im in Memphis,Tn and alot of our winners always come from the other side of the state I dont understand that at all. What about Memphis and surrounding towns and cities. Why dont we have winners here from scratchers and lottery games.

    I am glad to see someone from a smalll town win. CONGRATS TO THEM!!!

    I Agree!*** You Can't Win, If You Don't Enter***

      Same here in New York,

      Seems like all the big winners come from the NY city area, and the rest of the state just gets bread crumbs.

      Although we did just get a million $ scratcher winner at the grocery store the I go to, here in cny.

        I wouldn't say that for MI i think  the  wealth is spreaded around. For

        awhile the folks in the intercity(detroit) were not winning any jackpots

        but i can say that the wealth hits all communities
