Nevada/Arizona Lottery Fever
This picture was taken outside the Chevron gas station about 25 miles inside the Arizona border, down Hwy 93 from Boulder City, Henderson and Las Vegas.
There were about 100 people in this line, about 150 at the Last Stop restaurant/gas station, across the Highway from Chevron and about 75 people at Rosie's Diner next to Chevron.
About 2 miles down the road is a Texaco gas station, also selling Powerball tickets and there were about 8 people in line.
When I mentioned this to the people at Chevron, that there was no waiting at Texaco, all of 0 people moved to go to Texaco, even though the wait time was at least 30-45 minutes.
These people are too stupid to win the lottery.
But thank you to all the Nevadans who are helping Arizona by buying tickets here and helping keep out taxes down just a little.
Meanwhile, when buying my nightly beer at a Maverick gas station, 1 gentleman just got done buying about 150 tickets, or $300 worth of tickets.
I look at it this way, if it is meant to be, it doesn't matter if you buy 5 tickets or 200 tickets, so while it lessens the odds a little, it's a waste of time and money.
And to top it off, the cashier wasn't paying attention to the lottery ticket paper roll and the tickets got all jammed and crinkled up. It's not like you can void the tickets and rerun them. From what I understand, either the customer has to accept them or the store has to eat the tickets. I might be wrong, but that's what I understand
