Do you think winning the lottery dends on the numbers you select or the town or store you buy the ticket? I never see any JPwwinners from urban areas.

    You mean like sub-suburbia? What is a urban area, is that in the country?

      When I buy lotto tickets, I normally buy tickets far out in the suburbs.

        I buy at the same stores all the time. And I always smile for the cameras.

          Yes and No, you have to pick the right numbers in order to win, but the town or the store is irrelevant IMO.

          Pennsylvania leads in the # of PB winners and Philadelphia alone has three PB JP winners... That's urban IMO.

            I don't think it makes a difference. Some people say if it looks like its about ready to fall down with a thousand posters in the window dated 20 years ago the better. But lately a lot of hits have been from grocery stores and here our Arco. And of course the liquor stores as you got to pick up that ticket with that six pack.

            See Ya!

              Its ALWAYS the numbers. When those little balls are spinning around in that plexiglass orb- there is no mechanical voice saying " Hey Sid & company don't forget you guys are all NJ balls- get it done". The higher the concentration of tickets in an area,  the better the chances.
              However ever so once in a while- one in a small little town gets thrown a bone and comes up a winner.Even a blind squirrel finds an acorn now & then.

                Numbers and location are contributing factors but don't make no nevermind in the grand scheme.

                It's when it's your time.

                When it's your time, you'll have the right numbers and be in the right location and cut in line in front of the right person if necessary.

                But if you sit out drawings because you don't think a base jackpot of 40 million dollars or 12 million dollars is enough for you to risk a couple o' bucks on, it's possible your time may have come and gone, never to return.

                    It depends on the type of game you are reffering to. If it is scratch tickets then we might have some agreement. I think they try hard to spread out the locations that sell the winning scratch ticket top prizes. But in draw games, I don't think they have any influence on where the winning ticket will be sold. I am not one of those looneys who believe that PB & MM are rigged.

                      I never sit out any draws. I can retire quite nicely on the minimum jackpot. Heck I'd be happy with 5+0 on MM or PB. That gets me out of debt, even if I can't retire on that.

                      I just hope my time comes before "my time".

                              No offense intended, but that is the stupidest question I have ever heard with regard to the lottery...that is, if you are talking about online numbers games. For scratch offs, it is all about the location, obviously. But for pick 3/4, pick 5, state lotto, and multi-state jackpot games, the only thing that matters are those matching numbers on a ticket. It does not matter where you buy your ticket to have a chance to win. But post win, when you are sorting through the realities of winning and dealing with the pending publicity and tax issues, then the location (state) where you purchased the ticket does factor in. So let me retract my first statement...it depends on what you are most concerned with.

                              Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

                              The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!
