Many Oklahomans are used to going to Texas or Kansas to play the lottery.

Now some folks from out of state are coming here for a chance to win. Arkansas is the only state surrounding Oklahoma that doesn't have a lottery.

So many Arkansas residents are visiting stores in communities just across the state line in Oklahoma. Arkansas resident Vince Villalobos: "I think it's ok to do every now and then, but don't get carried away."

Store clerks in the Arkansas border towns say about half of their lottery customers are from Arkansas.
