Since the retailer that sells the tickets gets $2000 for Fantasy 5 wins and for each rollover, I prefer

the small grocery stores over the chain gas stations or liquer stores.  Help the little guy as I hope to win.

      I buy online. Easy as hell.

      Let a computer program make the tickets and then send the tickets over internet to the lottery company.

        i live 20 miles in the woods from the "big" city so i go to my locally-owned "mom/pop" store about 10 miles from my house.

        they always have plenty of play slips and don't mind you taking a handful, plus if i ever did win the big $, i would want them to get the share,plus what i would personally give also to the store owner and wonderful clerks there.

                I purchase my lottery tickets in various places.  First of all, I am happy to say I am a Mega Millions subscriber (thank you Illinois for getting with the program).  Then I usually buy the majority of my tickets from a nearby mom-and-pops (Korean/Chinese) shop.  I will also purchase tickets from gas stations if pressed for time and I need a buy in for that particular drawing or an extra ticket to minutely give me another chance at winning the jackpot.  I do not purchase tickets from grocery stores.

                I don't really think about the reward...all I think about is me winning.  The mom-and-pops store just happens to be within running distance from my house, so that is why I frequent it (yes, playing lottery can also bring health benefits for those who walk, bike, or run to the store instead of just hopping in the car).

                Now if only I could get a Powerball subscription.

                Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

                The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

                  No matter if they're my own picks or Quick Picks I prefer to buy at a "lucky" place that has sold big winners before.

                  Fortunately, one of those places is not too far from me just over the Va line.

                    I usually get my ticket at Food Lion or 7-Eleven.
