When you buy more than one ticket for PB and MM do you buy from different stores?

Hi,

I was wondering what people do when they buy more than one ticket for PB and MM per drawing.  I usually buy one ticket per draw with the multiplier and powerplay. Since I rarely ever win anything by playing just the one line I'm thinking of playing more lines per draw and wondered what would be the best thing to do. The few times I played more than one line it seemed like the numbers were the same on a few of the lines using QP. I realize that I have the option of picking my numbers instead but do not want to have a set of numbers that I would feel compelled to play each time so that's why I do QP.  Also for those who play at least 5 lines or more on a drawing have you had luck winning something by playing more lines? One of the reasons I play only one line with the multiplier or megaplier is because it still keeps me in the game without overspending. Any comments would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Hi again,

    I think I just got off topic with my post. When you buy more than one ticket how many people buy all their tickets on the one draw from the same place or do you spread them out hoping you will get different numbers if you do it by playing QP's?

      Upgrade your membership and use the statistical data for PB and MM, You will improve your game with a more educated selection. Good luck.

        Hi,

        Thanks for your reply. I'm not good with statistics and math was never my strong suit. Sometimes I've tried just looking at the numbers that have been drawn over the course of the last few months to see what numbers have come up more often. Since the drawings are supposed to be random does it even matter what numbers have already been drawn since they could still be drawn at any given time.

            I play my choosen numbers at the same place on Tuesdays and Fridays, I buy my MM, PB and State lottery all at the same time.  If I ever supliment my tickets with a QP I buy those at a different place ie; gas station, grocery store.

              In my opinion, the difference between having one line or a hundred lines in a field of over 175 million possible lines is miniscule.

              So I only play 2 lines, one line of my own personal (Hands off, Buster!) birthday/lucky numbers that I never change and one line of Quick Picks.

              Studies have shown (yes, my studies) that this is a wildly profitable way to play.

              You should be making money hand over fist in no time.

              By the way, can I borrow 5 bucks?

                  I don't think it would make much difference to buy them at different places as they're all hooked up to the same main terminal!....or am I missing something?

                    I get my routine tix at the same place most times.

                    If I'm doing somthing different I might stop elsewere like, a 7-11 near my old house where someone got a 5+0 w/ MP just a few weeks ago,

                    and that 7-11 is consider a lucky store.

                      No matter which store you go to, all the same numbers are still in the mix and must be distributed. Even when a person does the self-pick deal, with all the total combinations involved, you're still getting exactly what's contained in the matrix of numbers which can be possibly selected in the end. A different store doesn't alter the odds of winning, okay. What happened to the person in question was a product of good fortune (luck) and cannot be taken as standard procedure for a duplicate result of sorts.

                      Not trying to rain on your parade or anything, okay. But, there are millions of combinations to choose from and a store change won't make or break the win if it's really your time, buddy.
