No matter what happens out of this entire fiasco.......We all can take a valuable lesson or two when it comes to winning the lottery....."Pools with no rules are for fools".......Trying to fix misspoken claims is like pushing a snowball down the side of a mountain on a warm day

Stay Positive, Believe and good things will come your way

    Here is the problem she took the group ticket home without authorization and now she is saying the group ticket is the lossing ticket and that the winning ticket is personal. Well if you can walk to 7-eleven to buy it you should be able to walk back to mcdonald to put it in the safe b4 the draw so there won't be any conflict of interest. And why did the group trust her she doesn't look like an angel.lol

      There is such an easy way to play a work lotto pool that would avoid all this potential lying and deceipt:

      1)  Each person who plays in that individual lotto pool must sign a group pool signup form every time they play the pool.  No signature, no pool entry, no exceptions.  The lotto pool form is to spell out all of the rules for playing in that pool.

      2)  All pool lottery tickets are to be bought the day before the drawing, no exceptions.  Tickets are to be bought at the same time each drawing, so players know they have a deadline they must meet.  If someone wants to join the pool after the tickets are bought or the day of the drawing, they have to wait until next drawing.

      3)  Make a copy of the pool tickets & distribute a set of them to all members of the pool well before the drawing. 

      4)  Keep a copy of the pool entry forms & tickets for at least 1 year.

      5)  Any tickets purchased outside the lotto pool are individual tickets & belong to the person who bought them; they're separate from the pool.  No exceptions.

      If pool players would just follow these simple rules, there would be none of this ridiculous winning ticket drama.  Handle this like a business & it'll never be a problem.

          If this turns out fake, that's a really heartless joke to play on your co-workers. I'm sure shes unemployed already. This is why i demand copies in our pool. Her manager should of known this.

            I always play in a small pool and I am the pool caption. I buy the tickets and scan and email it to the group. That way there is a timestamp and everyone knows the ticket numbers. I can buy as much as I want on my own ...No issues there..

            I too was in a lottery pool years back  and was the one to buy the tickets . I also would purchase my own tickets. However, I made copies of all the tickets and gave them to the members The tickets was left in the safe at the school. There was many ways to make a different  in your personal tickets even the agent.Maybe she should have purchase her own from a different place.Yes Nod

                According to the MD Lottery, the winning ticket in Maryland was a single Quick Pick - not a $5 ticket.  So I'm not sure how much of this story is true.  We'll just have to keep following it.  Sometimes these things have turned out to be false in the past.

                Todd, I agree, but he (Allen) said that he gave her $5 to buy more tickets which she took home and didn't bring back the new tickets to be put in the safe with the rest of the tickets.  She could have bought five single tickets which she didn't bring back to the Mcdonalds safe, I feel that she has to share the money because she can't prove otherwise because she didn't bring the tickets back to the safe with the other tickets.

                  I Agree!  Todd, the video shows a man purchasing the ticket now this man could be her 'fiance' however she said said she bought the ticket.... this story is very confusing to me... Crazy

                    good point benThumbs Up, for her sake hopefully she has a $5 ticket that she bought right after work if not she is headed for a long leagal battle.

                    What get's me is the 7-11 clerk said that the lottery officials reviewed the survelliance video and it shows a man buying the ticket. So let's say (I might be stretching here) that her 'fiance' bought the ticket whose to say the she didn't give him the lotter group money to play with. However she keeps saying 'she bought the ticket.

                    drama, drama, drama, I need a drink after reading this...LOL...Cheers

                      Thats why is never good to play in a lottery pool. Because face value or word of mouth agreement is never good.  Unless there is a written agreement signed by everybody in the pool. Thats why i never play lottery pools.  Written agreements is the best way to prevent things like this from happen. And finally have it notarized and then there will be no disputing.

                        This is why everyone should have a list of the numbers they are going to be playing.

                          I really like this part of the story,"Allan said he and Layla went to Wilson's home and pounded on the door for 20 minutes until she finally came out.

                          "These people are going to kill you. It's not worth your life!" Allen said he told her.

                          "All right! All right! I'll share, but I can't find the ticket right now," she finally said, according to Allen."

                          Really ??  REALLY ?? You can't find the ticket right now ?

                          Then there's this part of the story,
                          "I don't know if I won. Some of the numbers were familiar. I recognized some of [them]," she said. "I don't know why" people are saying differently. "I'm going to go to the lottery office [today]. I bought some tickets separately."

                          Is this taxpayer for real ?

                          She is truly fits the definition of  "gormless"

                              She may be lying because the lottery office said when they viewed the camera it was a male that purchased the tickets but you never know this is what happens with pools.

                              You have the one person that will be greedy if she can prove that the boyfriend or husband purchase her tickets seperate then they get nothing it is hard for me to see 15

                              mcdonald's employees couging up $5.00 a piece they only make $7.50 per hr they have to account for all their money.
