Just curious here, it seems like most big winners purchased their tickets on the day of the drawing.

I have certainly noticed that I have had a lot more $1-$4 winners when I bought my tickets on the day of the drawing.  The only times I seem to win anything when I buy on any other day are when I go board with all the mega balls when playing MM.

I'm just trying to do anything to lift the curse of "Can't win" lol

          It doesn't matter where or when you buy your tickets. If it's meant to be, it will happen.

          If you have been a player for a while, you know all the stories of people when they bought their winning tickets.

          • went in for gas and had $2 change so I bought a ticket.
          • went grocery shopping and bought some tickets from the machine on the way out
          • wife called and told me to buy.....wasn't going to buy if she didn't call
          • was out of state visiting and bought a ticket
          • don't play unless jackpot over xxx amount
          • bought a few tickets, but bought one more...just for luck

          The stories go on and on.

          What made those tickets winners and not the ones we bought?

          Why did the balls that were drawn match the numbers on their tickets and not our numbers?

          Who knows? But, as I stated above, it doesn't matter where or when you buy your tickets. If it's meant to be, it will happen. Just hope it happens to you one day soon.

              Good Post! And, people will attempt to bridge the gap between the correct numbers to match their own with superstition, prayer, positive thinking, karma, lucky stores, lucky numbers, lucky charms, good and bad days, signs, various types of star charts and calendars, hot and cold numbers, various systems, mathematical formulas, computer analysis, random QP, and so forth. And, if said things should work for them they will pledge to the authenticity of such a way. Oh and my favorite so lets not forget funny feelings, and the PLU code on fruit and vegetables. Whatever it takes! lol
