Hello everyone. New to the website. I started a lottery pool at work in January with some co-workers for Florida Mega Money and I am starting up another one for Florida Lotto. For the Mega Money, we pay for the month and I purchase quick pick with advance play for the entire month and then the following month, rinse and repeat.

Here is my question, are you in a pool at work and if so do you purchase quick picks each time, or have you used the same numbers since the begining of the pool?

      As has been demonstrated time and time again, throughout lottery history, QP's have always ruled the day.

            I use quick picks when forming a pool ONLY because if I don't have to worry about any finger pointing going on if I was responsible for selecting non winning numbers. With that being said, if everyone pitched in and selected the numbers and not just one person, that would be different.

                Good point CinCin, we stopped the pool, I couldn't take any more of the whining.

                  I Agree! Thats why a set of numbers that never changes is BETTER. Either the numbers win or they dont, plus you can play using the same play slips over and over.

                    Most people here have heard all the horror stories about getting involved with lottery pools and they know they have to be wary of them.

                    And also to be wary of people whose very first post is primarily to mention that they just happen to be starting a new lottery pool. 

                    Welcome to Lottery Post and Good Luck, schmuckatelly!

                      If I was in a pool which played a line or two every draw than I would also want to go with self picks, just as I would when selecting my own lines.

                       

                      I do however advocate quick picks if playing in a group that only gets together for the ocassional big JP's where you're gonna buy 20, 30 or more lines. It's also nice to take a break from the time consuming number crunching that goes along with always picking your own.

                          Very true but I always select new numbers every draw except for the bonus ball which I keep the same until it hits.

                            It's a futile effort.

                              I hate that term - "side action".

                              It reminds me of why I'm paying for so many wimmins houses.

                              And it's not like I ever really got any side action anyway. Wink  Big Grin
