    I dont know if it matters or not. I buy 5 tix per drawing from the same store, but when the powerball gets high, I will buy tix from different stores, even driving out of town to buy a few tix at different locations.

      As simple as it sounds, they are all just different theories, until you hit it using one of those ideas.

      You might want to try driving out to some small city you have never heard of also.

        Or, ask the store clerk if you can buy his mistakes.

      Better yet, offer to split the prize with someone you can't stand.

      maybe you should buy a ticket and put it in a sealed envelope, then don't open it for 3 months if someone hits the jackpot in your area,,,,the numbers might change....

      either way good luck!!

          What would be the point of buying at multiple stores? Any store that sells the game you want to play will be perfectly willing to sell you any of the possible combinations, including the winning one. If you can't pick the winning numbers at one store, how will going to a different store help?

            I read somewhere that the lottery machines have different seed numbers or something like that.
