I am about 40 miles from a state that allows for an anonymous claim of the lottery.  My state and the border state have PB and MM.  There i a game in the bordering state that has a game with better odds. It's a nice highway drive and I usually stop at this "landmark" to enjoy the scenery and collect my thoughts. I usually do advance draws, so about once a month I'll buy a ticket for MM and PB and the oher game.

    Make a trip and play for as many draws you can..Save gas that way..

        The other thing you can do is look for an excuse to drive to Georgia.

        When I was visiting the University of Georgia for the first time, I decided to play the lottery in all the states that I passed through. I played in North and South Carolina, but not in Georgia, because I did not know where to find a retailer. That was also the year where I decided to give up checking lotto numbers for Lent - but not playing, because I wanted to play on February 29. I did - and won $40!

        Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

        In a lot of states, lotteries benefit education. That makes the REAL winners the only people who can't play!

          I have done that too.  I took a work related trip to Idaho once and played the lottery there.  When I came back, I had a layover in Denver and found a currency exchange stand that sold Lottery Tickets, so I bought some tickets there.  The drawings weren't until the following Saturday and in the mean time, I bought tickets in my own state of Louisiana so in other words, I played the lottery in 3 states.  Still didn't win anything though.

          On a couple of work related trips, I passed through airports in Houston and Dallas, but couldn't find anyplace selling lottery tickets, so I couldn't play there.  I may be taking a trip to Denver again in a few months, hopefully I can take another crack at Colorado.

            It certainly wouldn't hurt--because you never know when or where the winning lottery ticket will come from.  Only you can determine if it is too much effort--For example on several occasions, I've taken a complimentary bus ride to one of the local indian casinos near San Diego which is about 2 hours away; I make a good day out of it, enjoying the ride.  The answer to your question is: YES and what are you waiting on???Wink GOOD LUCK IN WINNING IN GEORGIAHurray!
