Hi everyone,
I travel a moderate amount for work -- maybe 12 to 15 trips a year. I like to buy advanced play tickets for PB and MM when I am on the road. (Hey, what better way to win a prize discretely than by having the ticket purchased 3000 miles away and six weeks ago? Though I will have mixed emotions when I win a few bucks and I'm across the country.)

Has anyone seen a list major US airports where you can buy tickets? Apologies if this has been discussed elsewhere on LP.

Here's a short list from what I have seen over the last few years. Any updates on these? Additions to the list?

Atlanta - inside terminals (directory says one outside, too)
Chicago O'Hare- inside
Denver - inside
Detroit - inside & outside
Minneapolis - inside
Portland OR - outside

Inside vs outside refers to whether they are passed security or not -- the difference between being able to play while on a layover or not. Based on my travel only, no additional research.

        Hey B2B, thanks for the tip. I looked it up. It was February 2013 at a Virginia Lottery self-serve kiosk at the Richmond International Airport. (Couldn't tell if it was inside or outside.)
        Thanks. I used to frequent the Richmond and Dulles airports.

          Never seen one inside security at Atlanta.  There is one by baggage claim which would be outside security check.

            BWI (Baltimore) has the self service machines and the news stand (INSIDE) is a retailer.
            Bwi has had few winners like $250, 000 mega millions winner.

              The ATL inside one is really hard to find. I was there in the last two weeks and had to ask someone who worked at the airport about it.

              There is a lottery terminal at the bar in a restaurant in Concourse E (farthest concourse from parking & ticketing). I think it is called Journey's or Sojourners' or something. There is no Georgia Lottery branding or anything... just the electronic scrolling sign with the current jackpots. You really have to look for it.

              Have no idea how long it will last. They seem to come and go.

              And thanks for the confirmation on the outside one! I was pretty sure there was one, but appreciate the eyewitness account.

                Thanks for the tip! I'll add BWI to the list at some point. And bonus points for a place with anonymity-friendly policies for claiming prizes.

                        Logan Airport in Boston, MA has lottery machines there. I only seen 2 though in different parts. I don't know if they have more. In those machines you can buy scratch tickets and the online games and it accepts the playslips too. I like those new machines the Massachusetts lottery has.
