You can drive to Primm,CA(Nevada/California border) and lottery there.

Plus, when you buy your lottery tickets in Primm, you can play in advance, up to 20 draws in advance I think it is. That way you just have to drive out there once every 10 weeks.

In Primm, you can get your ticket for up to 20 draws like Dan mentioned. If you go to Beaver Dam, it's only good for 10 draws. For Powerball and Megamillions.
We drive out to Primm once every 10 weeks and get one Super lotto for 20 draws and one Megamillions. This way we escape those super long lines when the jackpot climbs up and up and up. Unless it happens to be the day we have to get more tickets.
The last time we went, on March 26, it was right after the big win, and it still took 1 hour in line.

In NEVADA state run lotteries are unconstitutional. For that to change the legislature would have to vote to change it in two separate sessions which are held every two years. Then it would go the public ballot and us'ns would have vote for the change too. The earliest that change could happen would be 2014. It has always been thought that a state run lottery would be detrimental to the casinos, therefore causing job losses, and no one in Nevada ever wants to kill the goose that lays the golden egg. Personally, I don't think it would hurt them one bit. Maybe in the past it would have ...nobody knows so nobody wanted to risk it. I also never thought we should tax them more, but I've changed my mind after seeing what casinos in other states pay. A smidgen more from Nevada casinos would go a long ways towards improving the State budget, and wouldn't hurt them at all. (Disclaimer: I'm a retired State employee who is about to have some of my promised benefits taken away that I worked for years to earn, and that I thought were legally contracted for by the State.)

It really wouldn't hurt them. At least in the short term because all the casinos really need is for people to get in the gambling mentality. Once people get gambling fever they start gambling all over the place. In the long term though, it will probably be mostly locals playing and losing all their money thereby making the situation even worse down the road. Ultimately, the problem is more about streamlining where the money is going. Other states have passed the lottery to fund education and the such and the money just disappears into red tape(politicians pockets).

A group of state workers from Albany, NY won last week's MegaMillions drawing of $319M. Four weeks ago, a retired couple from Catskill, NY won $122M in the Powerball lottery. Man, it's all around me. In fact, that winning powerball ticket was sold where I get my dry cleaning done.
