I wouldn't say I buy at random places, I would say that I buy different places regularly. Whenever I'm out of town or something like I'll pick up a few tickets but its not like I make a habit of going to random places. Mostly just places I'm near on a regular basis.

You gotta be in it to win it.

      Couple of places locally. one more than the others. When out of town I will stop at a small place that I am sure could use the money to fix the place up or share with employees.

        I use to only play at 7-11 . A friend suggested playing at Liquor stores and small markets. We were playing at half  a dozen liquor stores in the area. Mostly replays.  We had better luck at 7-11. If we are on the road we will stop at a gas station or 7-11. I think we all have our lucky spots.

          There's 5 locations I buy from depending on where I am and what I'm doing. Sometimes I buy from other places, but for the most part, from this small group. I also use a lottery vending machine sometimes.

                As I've said, I normally buy mine at the same place, but earlier today I was filling up w/ gas and got my tickets for the next PB, MM and Texas lotteries. Hope it changes my luck.

                  usually at the same 7-11.  For some reason I feel when I win the ticket will come from the 7-11.

                    l wonder why Californians can place a bet for MM up to 7:45pm on a Tuesday- yet the cut-off time to place a bet for PB is 7.00pm on Wednesdays?

                    Do any other States follow this routine- just asking?

                       For me it's always buy from different locations if you have multiple retailers in your area. The logic in this is similar to the analogy of lightning striking twice in the same place. That may be a poor comparison but that's just my opinion. 

                      It can and does happen that there have been multiple winners at the same location, but always amazed to see that there was a winning ticket in one of the varied locations that are used to purchase tickets. 

                      Instant Scratch Off tickets winners, however, seem to pop up a lot at certain retailers.   

                      How's that expression go, "Location,location, location" , to use  the real estate parlance. 

                      See Ya!

                        Do you buy lottery tickets from same location or different everytime?

                        When I was in Tampa, I used to only buy from Sweet Bay, since that was the only place I ever won any money. But since moving to GA, it's wherever is convenient since I haven't been lucky anywhere since I got here. I know logically, it's random, so no one store is luckier than another, but hey, this is gambling and gambling on the lottery doesn't make much sense to begin with so...I go with where disappoints me the least.

                        I too would prefer Cersei Lannister to Tiny Hands. She always pays her debts, hasn't filed 6 bankruptcies and is educated enough to know Nambia isn't a country.
