    OMG LOL better do something before the store? thinks your staking them out.

    I couldn't tell you either way. I don't know how far or few between the winners are.

    Either way your taking a chance of losing that $20.

        This is the way these things work: you watch some guy shell out $20 and lose, then step up because you think the next ones' got to be the winner.

        You put your money in with anticipation of winning something big and BAM! Nada. You lost $20. Little do you know, another guy was watching

        you watch that guy and when you leave, he hopes you didn't buy his winner and he buys the next one..he scratches his...BAM! Nada again!

        Wow...3 in a row giving: zip, zilch and nada.

        What you all don't know is that the guy before the guy YOU were watching stepped up, bought one and hit $500, collected his money and left.

        The moral of the story? You don't know who it will happen to, where it will happen, which ticket it will happen with.

        If you feel like buying a ticket, pick one. If it's meant to happen to you, it will.

        Instants are pretty much a right place right time sort of game. Just because the ticket before yours didn't win doesn't mean yours will either.

        They print millions of those things - buying the next one after a loser might or might not win. You decide, it's your $20.

              Hello beaudad!!! I hope your basket was filled with lots of goodies!....I don't mean those nasty marshmallow peeps either Big Smile I remember having

              one of those years back and remembering how hard the *eyes* were...if you can call them eyes. They're in the proper place I guess but they had

              the texture of tiny pebbles - choking hazard - tiny but still, swallow it wrong and wind up gagging. That, coupled with the amount of sugar in them

              and ON them...they are an edible nightmare. Confused

              Yes and speaking of those tickets...can't say I haven't *choked* on more than a few of them either. There were some good ones but many times

              they just turned out to be duds. No Nod

              Here's wishing that you all step up at the right time and at the right place to a big winner -

              Cheers

              Good luck!!
