If there are 2 stores and one sells a lot of big winners and the other doesn't, where do you go?

The "lucky" store cuz it's "lucky" [ 29 ]  [30.21%]
The other store cuz it's due for a winner [ 14 ]  [14.58%]
Whichever store is most convenient [ 53 ]  [55.21%]

So you think and so they publicize, a corporation by it's very definition only exists to pay it's contibutors thier just rewards. Why would you or anyone else contribute to a losing propisition . Put yourself in a millionares shoes to see this question correctly, How much of a writeoff can we get? Where does the best press lie that we can write off? How can we fool the increasing number of idiots? I'm a glass half-full type of girl but I have NO respect for false charities, government control of any type, or BS.

Luck is when opportunity knocks and you answer.

    Wish the poll was about Unlucky stores, because everytime I stop at this one I get Losers each time. Figuring at some point a winner will spew. SO far I have consistently Lost money there.!!

    Why do I stop there, because I figure they need luck to enter in order to win...

    I'll hold the door for lady luck any day!

      Yeah Girl, I gotta say I've been pretty lucky at finding the unlucky stores for this past month. I was on a pretty decent streak b4 that. I'm gonna change things up next month with some "greener" pastures though, I hope.

                Since Manhattan is about 5 hours away I have to use stores around me that seem to win lot, and that would be Wegmans for Take 5.  Lately they have had most of the local Take 5 Jackpots so I try to play there any time I can.

                Other than Wegmans for Take 5, I play stores in-which the clerks KNOW how to run the machines. But it is fun to watch a newbie get the 'Sold Out' screen on the new machines, they just stare at the machine till I say 'yea I know trips are sold out'

                Here is another example of a Wegmans hit.. This is there SMALLEST store, and look its a QP!!!

                  I hear ya on that one bashley. I sent my wife in for a ticket (on a hunch) at a place I was driving past last week (she doesn't play any lottery) and she came back out and told me the clerk said they don't have straight or box, only exact or any. (Bang, ZOOM!)

                  I drove to the next store.

                    I only go for convenience. Usually it's the store a few blocks from me but if I'm going to the grocery store then there's two different stores that I'll go to, depending on whether or not the first one is busy or not.

                        I was talking to the guy that runs the local country store down the road from my house. he said the biggest winning ticket he has sold to date is 2,000. but if you go into town all the stores up there have multiple signs hanging out with the winning tickets they have sold and how much they were. plenty of 5,000 ,10,000 ,50,000 winners at the other stores. seems a little odd to me. the guy at the local store has been a retailer since the lottery began here in NC

                          $110,000 Badger 5 winning ticket sold in Fond Du Lac!!!

                          Last night. Please don't tell me that it's Ma and Pa's again!

                          Signs all over my local store.

                          2 or more badger 5 winners.

                          At least 3 supercash winners.

                          3 level 3 Powerball winners.

                          Before that store was a Citco, it was a Kerr Mcgee and they sold 2 supercash winners.

                          Local Piggly wiggly sold 2 Supercash winners, the moved and sold 2  more supercash winners and 2 badger 5 winners and last week Wed  1 $200,000 PB.

                          I used to think not to buy at these stores because their luck would run out. But some of them just keep on winning and winning.

                          Of course when they have 2 lottery printing machines, you know that they are serious about the lottery.

                          Mand Pa's has at least 2 machines and local citco has 2, Piggy has 1.

                            I bet a lady in Bishop, Texas believe in "Lucky Stores".   She's won 4 different times at the same store for a total of over $20,000,000!    Most of her winnings have come from Scratch Offs though but she did hit the Pick 6 on time I think.    Was a newspaper article last month about her and her winning at the same store.

                            To me it seems most winnings happen at little gas stations or convenience stores.  Don't recall very many winners from say larger grocery chains where they also sell.

                              In state of New York, the Pick 5 game is called Take5.  There's a store in my town called the "Take5 Deli"

                              Where else would someone go to play Take5???   You think that aint lucky????

                              It'd be even luckier if they sold lottery tix, but they dont! Puke

                              About playing the lottery --  You will lose more than you win. Until you hit a jackpot.  Then everything changes!
