Lottery pools can be good and sometimes they can be a bad thing  had to learn the hard way 8yrs ago pooling with 5 co-workers and i picked all the numbers.

We had no agreement nothing the 1 co-worker purchased 25 tickets because we put in $5 a piece we won $100,000.00 and this girl just act's a fool well i don't

blame the co-wrokers because my mom and my boyfriend was upset and my boyfriend threaten her and her husband needless to say i never got any money

the co-worker was treating 2 other girls out to eat, she quit the job and her and her husband was fighting over the money it is gone all $68,000.00 of it after taxes

I saw this girl at the karaoke bar she is broke and she had the nerve to speak i rolled my eyes so hard the dj was shocked and ask me what happen when i told him he said

I understand i would be mad to.

wow! that's what I call run on paragraphs.(denzel training day voice) BREATH DAWG!next time try using a couple of commas,it won't hurt.I promise.

        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.

        No matter what... it's obvious that the media is GEARED UP for some serious drama.

          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.

          I like #2... hadn't thought of that one.

          Long ago I was involved in a pool; until we had one nitwit who claimed they would sue everyone/anyone from the pool who won independent of the pool because - simply since the pool was created 'it" created a presumed sharing... everyone was flabergasted. 

          The pool dissolved immediately as we dumped all available 'pool' funds on the next lottery... and on repeat tickets with self-chosen numbers:  1,2,3,4,5 PB 2... and we had 18 of THAT particular ticket.  And with the copies of the tickets was sent out a THIS IS THE FINAL LOTTERY FOR THE GROUP notice... which included the fact that the pool was dissolved and defunct as of the date of the drawing of these tickets.

          Boy was the 'loud-mouth' angry... but since we had nothing in place that said the 'money-collector' could NOT do that... that is what the balance of us decided was the smartest thing to do.  and we also made sure that NONE of us played ANYTHING for 3 months afterwards.

            Yeah, maybe the NY Post is getting one over on us...

            Or maybe she fooled her coworkers (a little cruel) and the NY Post, which I'd get a big kick out of. I read the NY Post sometimes, but it's kind of a rag lol.

            A "rag" would deserve a good spoof like this.   Green laugh

              Maximumfun.  Where I am, we have a 2 week pool with a sign up list and rules, etc.

              My pool rules may seem a bit too much, but I hope they save us when the pool wins.

              I list them every two weeks in my blog for the current two week period.

              This way it keeps potential problems and disputes to a minimum.

                  If she is telling the truth, this is everything I hoped would happen if I wasn't the winner.  Classic!

                  The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

                    [S]ince the pool was created 'it" created a presumed sharing...

                    Recently, someone here posted a similar point of view regarding the pool they are part of.

                    There are probably many pools out there where at least one member feels this same way (it only takes one troublemaker) but hasn't made their move, yet.

                      I'm not a sore loser, so I wouldn't wish this on anybody if I didn't win.

                      Things like this are such a headace! Still waiting to see if she really is a winner or not.

                      No lottery pool for me ever!!

                            I missed that angle - lol.

                             

                            How would the other members of the pool not know what combinations are in play? Do they play Quick Picks for each draw? If that's the case, I would insist on having scanned copies of the tickets with the originals in the safe at work!

                             

                            Of course, I only pool with my imaginary friend and he knows better than to pull a stunt like that!
