    Most draw tickets, which is what I mainly play these days, are purchased from two liquor stores in town.  When I play Scratchers, there is one donut shop I like since I tend to win more often there than other places.

      Occasionally I will buy at a random store, but mostly I buy from the same one as it's the easiest one and I only buy once a month.

        I buy most of my tickets from 2 places, near my home or near my work place. Occasionally when I am out of town I will play there just to see is Miss Fortune is asleep or Lady Luck happened to be visiting that town that day. We have plenty of convenient stores all over in MA.

            I ussually buy from the gas station by my place, but recently I've been getting lucky at my college.

            I bought a QP for $5 at my college, won a FREEPLAY, won $20, spent $5 on another QP, and that QP won me 3 FREEPLAYS (matched 2/6 on 3 different lines if it was on the same line that would of been 50m! never happened to me before), then I won another FREEPLAY for this fridays jackpot at 50M + 2 Max Millions (lottomax).

            I'm feeling lucky :D

              It depends on what I'm doing during the day and where I'm at, so I end up buying my tickets from a variety of different places.

                I have about 10 locations that I buy from, depending which one is nearest the errands I'm running.  I seldom buy a ticket anywhere but those 10 stores.

                  Same here, at least as far as the same store.  There's a convenience store that's near by, but I go little out of the way to purchase from a certain liquor store where the clerks are friendly.  All Texas liquor stores have to be majority-owned by someone who resides in the same county, so IF I win, I know that the bonus will go to someone here in town and I think the owner would share some of it w/ his help.

                    Random locations and NEVER in my city, not NOW, not EVER.Reason? : long story short we had a convenient store clerk hand the tape of a $52 Mega Millions winner over to the lottery folk out of Sacramento less than 30 days after the win- those Morons posted his face on the TV news with " mystery winner needs to come forward".. in a State where one has over a YEAR to claim, they have not tried that crap ever since.

                    The winner ended up leaving the city for parts unknown ..

                      The majority of the time I play my numbers at circle k because it is within walking distance from my apartment but sometime I like to play at big apple store which is also in walking distance but a litttle bit farther from circle k.  If I am lazy I will just buy at circle k but if I want to get a good stretch on the legs then big apple store it is.-weshar75

                          Usually the same store but some times other stores.  Occasionally I'll even drive to the store (a bit of a distance away from where I live) that has a street number of 1111 - hasn't helped yet but who knows - one day it might work Big Grin

                              Some stores are lucky for me but it cycles on and off.

                              When it cycles off I go somewhere else.

                              Some stores I'm never lucky at and have taken them out of the rotation.

                              I like a nice clean smooth orderly ticket buying experience.

                              If I can see the clerk is an incompetent, chaotic scatterbrain with an aura of negative vibes or in a bad mood or pre-occupied in thought or conversation with some other moron, I'll go elsewhere.

                              I got no time for the nonsense.
