Did I miss something or does the article say that 33 guys are chipping in on one ticket (one line)?

 my thoughts exactly "ridge". let's dismiss the dog angle which had no bearing on this. it seems incredulous that 33 people would chip in for one paltry combination. i mean sure they could all risk 2.00 and someone makes that long drive to buy it for the next 33 draws(which i'm not sure you could actually do) and then 4 monthes later go around and collect a lousy deuce from everyone and do it again. it worked and they're happy with their payday but......it seems an odd way to conduct a pool....if they did buy quick pics along with this 1 everytime combo, strange that their alleged lucky numbers won instead of possibly 32 quick pics did. i sorta fail to understand this story.

    I think it more likely that each time a person join the pool they were allowed to bring a new line of numbers to the "set"....  that way the amount for each person to pay would never change, but the tickets being played would continue to increase. The interesting part is the numbers stayed in play once added.

    I suppose if someone left the pool, the line they contributed could be discontinued.

        They were playing 10 draws at a time. So that $20. for 10 PB lines, divided by 33 people. 

        Yes, Thrifty would be pround because the monthy contibution (per person) would be .60 as in 60 cent.

              trying to read between the lines of this poorly written story is a challenge. they would have to have someone fill out 8 cards with each persons new line of numbers plus 1 more line. then someone would have to drive to idaho twice a week under your supposition. i think these inexperienced powerball players actually did only play one line for 7 advance draws and then had to go back for the next 7 4 more times before the 66.00 was spent. i don't know and wish someone could get to the bottom of this one.

                Seen this story a few different places and I have read and re-read this about 3 times and I don't see how the hell the dog had anything to do with this. They played the same numbers all the time and regardless of where he played the numbers it still would have won second place. I guess if you want to attach some luck to the dog, fine, but the reality is there is none.

                  ??
                  25 people went to turn in the ticket and collect their checks...I would have sent Stella for mine.
                  It's a good win but split that many ways? $20,000 would convince me to continue on alone and
                  dump the pool. 13 years is a long time to wait. Personally, I'd dump the winning number line too.
                  Come to think of it, I could win $20,000 in a lot less time than 13 years playing PA pick 3/4. No Nod
                  But anyway...
                  WTG winners What?

                    maybe ea of them play the same set of numbers on their own ticket and they  dont share the prize, they ea win it. as its 2nd prize?

                     

                    hey that aint sounding too bad, who wants to come up with a set to always play 1 line on ea of us playing the exact same numbers,  it would suck if you hit th pot and split itm, but thats never going to happen.

                    2014 winnings

                    yearly grand totalspent = 938.05won= 318.8-$619.25

                      who pays for the gas for the 1 1/2 hour (one way or two) trip to idaho to buy but one combination every so often. it would cost more than the tickets by far for the gas they guzzle to keep this inane lottery pool going. i don't know savage, i don't think they bought it 33 times. i don't even they know what they are doing but it worked for 20k apiece so it must have been only one ticket, which once again reading this story they seemingly all chipped in on 2.00 divided by 33 is about .06 a piece per draw. absurd.....

                        How about all of us here at LP (139,043), kick in for one line for tonight's MM drawing.

                        That would only set each of us back .000007192 cents each.  Type

                        If we hit tonight's jackpot for $13 million, we would all be $93 richer! Banana

                        We might also set the Guinness Book of world Records for the largest lottery pool ever.  Party

                              That being the case, why not just let this genius dog do all the future betting?

                              As long as the dog has the cash and filled out bet slips, who needs the other guys?

                              Just make sure when the dog wins the jackpot he takes the lump sum, not the annuity, as most dogs rarely make it past twenty.
