I would avoid a lottery pool like I would a pool filled with alligators, pythons, and poisonous snakes! You just hear about too much grief and strife associated with them and it only seems to work out when inclusion rules are clearly written and each drawing participants identified in writing. That ad hoc lottery pool on a whim thing just invites trouble from those who wished they would have played to those who may have played in the past but didn't that drawing due to illness/vacation/termination (yes there have been cases of people expecting remaining company lottery pool people to chip in their share).
New slogan...JUST SAY NO TO LOTTERY POOLS.
Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is one MIRACLE I desire for 2019!!! NOW come to my subconscious mind you 6 winning numbers!
