If your state's lottery isn't bringing you any luck or it doesn't have one, why not play a neighboring state's lottery? That's exactly what a man in Illinois did and is now $10,000 richer.

Luckily for him, he didn't have to drive far since he lives in western Illinois and Iowa is just a short drive away. But if crossing the Mississippi River meant you would become $10,000 richer, wouldn't you do it too?
