I have been buying tickets here in NC since they started the lottery a few years ago. I usually buy them at grocery stores or at a far away gas station (the one close by refuses to sell tix).

All I've been hitting are "meh" places. But everywhere I went felt the same, so I abandoned hope that a "real" lottery ticket place was in my area.

Well, today I decided to hit a gas station/mini-mart that is at a really bad spot. It's practically on the turn ramp to get onto a major highway. So no easy access in or out.

I walked in and they have plastered everywhere all the winners they've had! "We sold a $10,000 ticket for Powerball", "We sold a $5,000 scratch-off", etc, etc. And I mean tons and tons of them!!

I feel as if I'm finally at the right place!

Anyway, I know my story is long, but I am so excited, I had to share it!

                  I've got 4 stores that I regularly buy tickets at (2 within walking distance). They all seem to take turns giving me hits. Right now the 7/11 is playing major catch-up. But if you don't pick the right numbers, I guess it doesn't matter where you buy them. LOL

                  Anyway, I hope you win very often at your new store.  Good Luck!!!

                  The numbers will tell you what numbers to play. Pay attention to the numbers.

                  Don't just think outside the box, crush it.
