Do you have a store that you seem to have more luck than other stores you have been to? I know the odds are supposed to be the same regardless where you buy your tickets but I am just curious.

      from my experience no. They all seem to be the same. In the past I have driven out of the way to stores that have sold jackpot winning tickets. There is a store a 20 minute drive from my house that's sold 3 jackpot winning tickets. First time I went there I got 2 plus the mega. Went back a few times and no luck ever since, so now I just go to the most convenient location.

            I think my luck is equally bad no matter where I play. Unhappy I sometimes get a few scratch-offs when I purchase a lottery ticket and there are stores where I never seem to scratch off a winner.

            I almost always buy my lottery tickets from locally owned businesses; if I do ever win the JP, I want them to have the bonus f/ selling a winning ticket rather than some corporate HQ in some other state.

              When I travel , I like the tickets. at the gas stations or the tickets in the stores at the airport.

                  Not really, since I pick my own numbers.

                  I've had littles wins playing quick pick tickets for Pick5

                  at the gas station though, the other place I go to had a Pick5

                  winner, she lives in my building, I think she won $30,000

                    Nope. I don't or at least I haven't noticed winning at one store over another but I get tickets from 6 or 7 different places depending on where I'm at when I'm out running errands.

                      There is a slight but still insignificant advantage for me to buy tickets other than at my local store. I never do any
                      good there.
                      'Good' meaning having ANY numbers on a line of play with quick picks. No matches on any bonus balls either.

                      Maybe that helps answer your question. Even though I haven't won anything worth writing about on MM or PB, I won't
                      buy a chance to win at the store closest to me. I'd rather get tickets a few miles away. It's the same no win slump type
                      feeling but it seems having a match of at least one or two numbers on a couple lines is better than seeing no matches
                      at all for a few dollars spent. My local store always pumped out tickets with bum numbers.
