Yep I traveled up to Franklin, Kentucky in the 90s to buy lotto tickets..  I won $40.00

Which paid for my gas up there from TN.  My family name was Franklin and I thought it might be lucky.Big Smile  Duh!!

Should have stayed home.

    Do You Ever Travel A Far Distance To Buy Lottery Tickets?

     

     

    if so i'd love to hear stories.the arkansas border is about twenty or thirty minutes from me and i'll be traveling there on a regular basis hopefully.

    I like collecting tickets from other states, but recently I haven't intentionally bought them from other states unless I've been close to the border.  So far I have bought tickets MD, PA, OH, IN and KY. I wish I had this desire back when I was traveling extensively for work then I would have a TON more states added to my collection.

      yeah i live an hour south of the tn border in georgia, and from time to time to drive when the powerball gets up there..i hit 4 of 5 in the pick 5 off my own numbers on one visit!!!! it would have been awesome if i hit all 5, life for me would be a whole lot different.. but i WILL get it next time!!!!

      If you live in the Kennesaw/Marietta/woodstock area and would like to play some tn games when i take the drive send me a message...Last time i was up there i remember a guy infront of me telling the clerk he drove an hour to come play (thats when the powerball was high) i asked him where from and he was from the same town as me, lol we could have carpooled, lol..i forgot to get his name and number but im sure next time around

        I was going on vacation to Las Vegas with some friends and since we drove out there and when we stopped for gas or to eat wherever we were and buy a couple of scatch off tickets to take back as souvinirs for some friends. They told me they had won $1 on the tickets.

          Don't know if this counts but I have Lotto slips from South Korea and Japan.

           

          South Korean and Japanese lotto stinks because 3-6 people always share the small jackpot.

                Sometimes drive an hour to OK to play PB. In fact, if it rolls tonight, I might go next week and play Hot Lotto also if it rolls too.

                  Until recently if I was in the Newjersey area, I would buy megamillions I no longer do such with the new tax law.

                  When visiting in  Nevada, I drove over to California to play SuperLotto and MegaMillions. Beleive it or not I won 56$ on the Superlotto. Had to do claim via mail and it was only two weeks til they cut and sent a check!Spent about 40$ in gas though to drive there

                  When visiting friends in Cinci (OH), we drove to tennessee and Kentucky to play some of their games. Was fun to just travel and pick up some tickets.

                  Now I go as far as Maryland to get MegaMillions. (60 MILES round trip) ANd there version of Multi Match.

                    Hey Lottomike

                    ALL the time! There are a few of  "Lucky Retailers"  that are over  forty- fifity miles away from my home.  I often do. (just for a nice drive hahahahah)   But not for my regular numbers.  I have a favorite store for those which is only about three miles from my home.  but sometimes I get a "feeling" for QPs when I do I go to my favorite cities.  One of my favorite cities just hit for 99K on fantasy five.  But I really depend on my own pick since I play them ALL the time-  I prefer to play those at my own favorite retailer and it doesnt cost me an extra ten dollars in gas.  Besides the 4/5 I just hit was at my favorite store and my own numbers so I guess Im doing okay.

                      Yes, but it's rare.  I live about 20-30 minutes from the Illinois border, so if the jackpot is high, I'll head down there and get a couple Mega Millions.  Right now, it's $60 million...not enough for me to travel.  Once it hits  $100 million, then I'll go.
