Hi all, based in Florida... new here so I apologize if this has been posted before. I have been a very casual lottery player over the years, I play the Mega and Power when it goes over $100 mil or so usually, 1 or 2 tix. Grab a few scratch offs every now and then, was on a lucky streak last year but recently went cold this year.

I have been noticing lately over the past few years that a majority of the winning Jackpot tickets have been sold in really small stores, for example just making up names here, "Mike's Quik Stop".. or "Tom's E-Z Go" or "E-Z Foods" type of places. Of course I know Publix, Murphy gas stations and other national retailers have sold high Jackpot tickets as well but I always seem to read stories about the smaller stores with a lot of the winners.

Has it always been this way? Are my odds slightly better at a small hole in the wall convenient store?

    If you really believed what you just posted then it's true to you and that's all that counts.

      Welcome to the LP jcfb1414. As far as where to buy I don't think it matters all it takes is one ticket to win if you can afford it may be buy one ticket at a big retail store and the other at a mom/pop store. Thumbs Up

        Nope. The odds don't change based on which you store you buy your tickets. You have the same chance of winning whether you buy your tickets at Store A or Store B. All that matters is that you choose the right numbers.

        Also, welcome to Lottery Post! Smile

          Here in California, the winning vendors tend to have names like: Ciggies & Beer or  The Drink N' Drive...   LOL
