she's obviously talking about scratchers and NOT about MM or PB that cannot possibly be doctored to the advantage of some certain gas station or 7-eleven ..

If you know the next PB or MM combination to be drawn, it doesn't matters where you buy your ticket.  Not only that, you can share the information with your buddies anywhere in the country and they can win too.

 * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

    I won a descent payout on a scratchoff a couple years ago 10k when I took it and cashed it in the lady at the state office did not ask where I bought the ticket and some how the ticket found its way to where I bought it and put on display for advertisement so go figure, also it seems that alot of winners here in Illinois are in Chicago and that area far less winners downstate, they say because more population up there which could be true but they also like to keep the tax dollars up there as well,after all Illinois had two governers in federal prison in rescent years, even though Springfield is the capital the goveners seem to live and stay in Chicago where most all the big wigs live, in short I think they know exactly where the big winners are...Jester

      They didn't have to ask you. They know where you bought the tic from the pack number. That doesn't mean they knew what the winning tics were. But they know where the individual packs go.

            Your definition of fair might not be the same as theirs, as long as they aren't targeting a particular person to win they may thing it's totally fair to place winning tickets any where they want to.

            Twenty years ago, Ohio had a contest in which players could mail in losing tickets and get a second chance in a random drawing to win a prize.  The random drawings consisted of someone opening mail bags and picking out evelopes with the winners names.  They started to notice after a while that 50% of winners were from Cleveland and most of them worked at the local post office.   Workers in the local post office were putting their envelopes in the mail bags last so they would be the first out.  As far a the lottery was concerned taking evelopes from the top of the mail bags was fair and random.

            What?

            Dishonest Postal Employees?

            I am shocked and appalled!

              That's ok, LottoMomma, I'm easily confused.

              For years I thought Taco Bell was the Mexican Phone Company.
