Life is more difficult when you're stupid. How hard is it to write down a set of rules that cover these things and then folow the rules?

You should know KY.....  All they had to do is cash the ticket BEFORE they announced it at the bakery.

    Yeah we know. That's why you don't have one.

    don't need one. actually won the lottery "twice" without being in a "pool". which is 2 times more than you will win one. so keep plugging away.

        I used to be a pilot for a bakery.

        I would take the dough from here and pile it over there.

          Just because you write a set of rules doesn't mean everyone understands them.  Besides, it would be stupid of persons who didn't follow them to say he understood them if it kept him from suing for a portion of the winnings.

          There are always exceptions to the rules too and people sue because of the other exceptions. If it's known the person running the pool allowed someone to play without paying before, call the lawyers. If they need binding contracts just for a simple lottery pool maybe they should reconsider doing it.

            Please give me the headache of sharing the lottery. I dont want the peace and sanity of having no jackpot wins.

            Suspiciousness is one way of saying that one do not want to know the truth. It is the best way to keep the mind empty and the spirit restless.

              Now I realize how complicated lottery pool is. Why not just do it alone? Less hasle, less complicated and you can enjoy your prize! Embarassed

                keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= JAN=-32, FEB= +12 , MAR= -86, APR = -77. MAY= -48, JUN= -29, JUL=-71; AUG = -52; SEPT= -43; OCT = +56 NOV = -33 TOT= -3297

                  That's easy. They have a written contract that spells out the rules, including the procedures for paying (or failing to pay on time), how to buy pool tickets, how members can buy personal tickets, and how members can be removed from the group.

                  That's not necessarily how the top firms do it, but it's how any firm you would consider hiring does it.

                      The problem is some of the people joining the pool are thinking by playing infrequently they have as good of a chance of collecting part of a big prize as those playing regularly.   Many pools will cave in and share rather than waiting a year or two to collect their money and wasting much of it on court cases.

                      I would see it ate up in lawyer fees and court costs.

                      I would NEVER settle with a liar.

                        If the bakery workers don't get their money they should just start making Twinkies and get rich that way.
