Why doesn't anyone in New Jersey start a ticket buying service?

I think someone in New Jersey should start a ticket buying service for people in "can't win" states for Powerball and Mega Millions.  It would be an awesome business idea I think and would help other players.  Players from other states would pay a premium, like $8 each for a PB ticket, and $5 for a MM ticket if it was purchased in New Jersey.

    Because it's illegal.

     

    Can win/can't win doesn't depend on your state, it depends on your state of mind.

      Illegal to have someone in another state buy tickets for you?  I've done it several times.

          Maybe you could start a "ticket winning" service in your state guaranteeing every ticket would win something or their cost would be refunded. Wink

          If charged a $3 butler service for each ticket, you could make money and your customers would get back the cost of their losing tickets. Embarassed

              Nice idea there, but it wouldn't go over well.  Players would say "Missouri???  They never win anything!"

              New Jersey would be the perfect place to market this, they win A LOT of PB & MM drawings plus A LOT of 5+0's.

                  Sign me up, why pay $1.00 for a Power ball when I can spend $8.00 for one Power Ball.

                  Wow, What a great idea, people will be coming at you in droves to spend 7 extra dollars for one ticket, they will have no idea they are spending to much, you're going to be rich.

                      It would be interesting reading if someone could find out how many lottery terminals there are in NJ and NY.
                      Given the population, there may be a terminal on every corner, not to mention the added weight of
                      visitors.
                      Its the same in California and other states that have a high winning record where the predator jackpot games
                      are played.
                      I'm in Texas and we have terminals everywhere.
                      When someone hits, they are most often visitors from Mexico or other location.
                      We can't win for losing!
                      But, maybe we (generic) are smarter and are spending our dollars on games we can win, such as scratch tickets.

                        Being in San Angelo, you probably do have more Mexican winners.

                        I play MM, PB, Lotto, and 2 Step every draw. I've gotten into AoN quite a bit too because I like the overall odds, but I don't play that every draw. Even play Daily 4 a few times a week.

                        They're all a bugger to win at. I have considered just playing nothing but scratchoffs, but to win a decent jackpot requires buying a $10 ticket. Not doing that every day.

                          I'm a so-called 'systems player.'
                          I have a workout for all of the Texas games, except AoN. (Drawn 4 times per day times 12 = 48 integers to manage).
                          I play P3 and D4 once per day.
                          Also Lotto and Two-Step every draw.
                          Lot of work but worth it.
                          I'm concentrating on Cash 5 and developed something that may payoff.
                          Texas Triple Chance has too many integers to manage. I play 5 sets once per week.
                          Rarely buy scratch tickets.
                          I have no money for the jackpot games!
                          Good luck!
