We have been doing some traveling so for the next megamillions draw I will have tickets from five different states in the draw.  To date that has been my highest number for jackpot games.  Now for next Tuesday's draw I will have tickets for 6 or 7 states because we will be on the road again and I can add two more states.

So a new record for me next week!

I am not much of a scratcher player so my highest number has been three tickets from different states at one time.

How about you?

        The most for me was 3 at one time.

        I live in NY, but had to travel to NJ and CT on the same day, so it was NY,NJ & CT

        Another time I had to go up to Boston. So it was NY, CT and MA

          Couple of years ago I played Win for Life by subscription in VA and would get multi-draw tickets from GA for the same game.  VA, GA, SC

            Just 1. I never had nor have a car otherwise I'd go to Vermont or  Massachusetts. Cheaper withholdings and they let you use a trust to claim it anonymously.

              LL, do you also get tickets for state lotteries?  Just curious. Good luck to you.

                I have had as many as 6 at one time, MI, OH, IN, KY, TN, GA. I usually get multi-draw tickets with the state lotteries except for Ohio. Since you can remain anonymous there, I buy state lottery and multi-draw PB & MM tickets there.

                I will quit playing the lottery, as soon as I break even.

                  For one drawing, I held 3 tickets, one from each from Washington, Oregon, and California. On occasion I have tickets for California and Oregon, but primarily, just Oregon tickets.

                    Seems other states have better state games than SC.  Our Cash 5 doesn't roll like NC and GA.

                      I do get state lottery tickets but not as much recently since I started playing Cash4Life at home. I just skipped getting Illinois tickets because I usually do multi-draw and didn't know what was happening with their budget.  On this upcoming trip I will get Michigan Lotto tickets.  I especially like playing the Floridia Lotto.  Last fall I had MI, OH, and FL lotto tickets all at the same time for several weeks.

                      Good luck to you too!

                        10, if you count New Jersey as a state (just kidding), plus Ontario for 11.  Biggest winner of this group was in Canada for $68, though I was not able to claim because they would not mail to the States.  I gave the ticket to someone going to Canada and they could not claim because they were in the wrong province.  I'm sure Lottery Canada loves Americans who cross for very short visits!

                          I'm feeling a $123,000,000.00 jackpot win coming my way!

                            Most states for 1 drawing - 3 - Texas, Kansas, Arizona whilst traveling - then Delaware, New Jersey, Rhode Island.  Never won in any of them when I had multiple state tickets for a draw though.
