      That would be 7:50 my time.  So more than an hour before the draw?

        Yessir. The states must have come up with the rule to avoid last minute confusions.

          Thanks for the info MM.  Glad I asked.  I was thinking it was just 5 or 10 minutes before the draw.  I'm gonna try buying a QP just before it closes tonight since I don't think I've ever tried that.

            Powerball betting stops at 7.00pm on the West Coast.

             Bummer if you here at 6.59pm Wednesday & Saturday.

                I won!  I won!

                I matched the PowerBall on the ticket I bought just before the machines closed.  Better than I've done on PB in ages.

                  Did you add the powerplay? I hope you did

                      I don't think our vending machines stop selling tickets. I've bought them at 1am, and it assigns the ticket to what time/day you hit the machine. Not sure about the counter machines.

                        I once had the opposite problem. Trying to PB/MM tickets but the convient store I went to wouldn't sell me any until about 6 A M. I quit going to that store.

                          Years ago the stores here did the same.  The c-store closest to me got a new guy working evenings, and he would shut it down 45 minutes before he was supposed to.  I should have called their corporate office, but I just quit going there.  That location shut down not long after.
