Need One More Roll


Last Edited: November 27, 2006, 5:48 pm

Well, I am still waiting to see if Lotto 649 rolls again. It rolled on Saturday so now I only need one more roll and it is group play time. If Lotto 649 does not roll, then I go with plan B and buy Super 7 tickets for the group. Either way, the group gets to play for a jackpot larger than $20 million.

I buy group play tickets at least once a month.

Entry #18

I play in a lotto group but only a small group of four people. I know spmthing is better than nothing but say you group was lucky enough to win the big one an let's say there was more winners than your group. By the time everyone gets paid and pays taxes you probably would not receive life changing money, maybe not even retireing money. So you would take you winnings buy a few nice things and spend the rest of the cash chasing after another big win which probably would never come. Not my idea of fun, so I play a with a small group of very close friends who I hang out with regardless and I also play my own tickets that I only have to split with the wife. Just my thoughts. Good Luck to you. fast eddie

Thanks for the comments fast eddie. It is not as bad as you describe for 4 reasons.

1. There are no taxes to worry about for Canadian lotteries.

2. We only buy tickets for large jackpots. Then, if there are multiple winners, each person in the group still wins lots of money.

3. Each member of the group can decide how big their share of the win is based on how many shares they decide to buy. This puts more control with each member.

4. We play non-popular number combinations minimizing the likelihood of multiple winners. The strategy has already proven itself. Our lower tier pari-mutuel prizes have always been larger than the average prize at that same tier.
