I have both personal tickets and an office pool ticket.  Really hoping lady luck cooperates, that the stars align for us if it's our time to escape the rat race, lol!

Good Luck!

     Yes feels kinda good being able to participate in the bigger JP's. My brother got 10 lines so far and say he will get a few more. Hope one line is the JP winner

     

    Good luck to everyone who is playing!

      Same here, since I run the office pool. Our pool has 4 lines for this jackpot and hope one is the winner, or at least wins something. On almost every 2 week round of our pool, playing Powerball, MegaMillions, and Louisiana Lotto, we always seem to win a lower tier prize, so I have hope we will hit the big one sooner or later.

      I also have my own tickets just to hedge my bets.

        Sounds like you have more personal tickets than the office pool.  I would expect an office pool to have more than just a ticket.

         * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

          Yeah, how is that possible? Does it even qualify as a pool with only one ticket? I'm thinking the "pool" will want to share the winning ticket even if its one of his personal tickets.

            I bought $20 worth of PB QPs with a friend, does that count as a "pool" ???

              " I was so pissed when I saw my numbers" 

              What's up with that?  Don't you have the option of picking your own numbers if you don't trust the terminal to pick the ones you want?

              Green laugh Good point...... The only reason I dont pick my oun numbers is because I like so many of them it takes me an hour and a half to fill out all the play slips. LOL

                It's the weekend, the first of the month, and the jackpot is huge. I'd call it the "perfect storm".

                You're right Stack, I wonder how many people will be trading in their food stamps for lottery tickets today?

                  Nope... the Pool ticket is 5 lines, one for each person that contibuted.  Our agreement acknowledges I play separately so it's not ever confused.  Contract below....

                   

                  ABC 123, Inc.

                  Co-Worker Powerball Group Ticket

                  Agreement

                   

                  Terms of Agreement:

                   

                  • This agreement is not sanctified and/or created and/or owned by ABC 123, Inc. it is only an agreement between individuals who are co-workers/friends/family, etc.

                   

                  • Each ticket owner will contribute $2.00 and one line of quickpick numbers for the next drawing will be purchased for the group with each $2.00 collected, to be evidenced by the number of signatures below.

                   

                  • A picture of the group ticket will be sent via text or email to each ticket owner after it is purchased. This is the only ticket the group and each ticket owners own together.   It is understood that several ticket holders play the lottery outside of the group and only the winnings of the group ticket are the shared winnings.

                   

                  • Ticket owners will share equally in all of the prize money. Any and all monies won will be claimed by a legal entity on behalf of all ticket owners as a group or each ticket owner individually. The structure and name of said entitie(s) shall be determined at a later date after all ticket owners have consulted with legal council and before claiming any prize.

                   

                  • Ticket owners agree to strict privacy and safety protection of themselves and of each other. 

                   

                  Basic guidelines to privacy include but are not limited to: No media appearances, no social media (Craigslist, Twitter or Facebook etc.) postings, no photographs (especially the picture of the winning ticket), no postings of any type on the internet related to yourself or other ticket owners in reference to winning.

                  • If you don’t sign and date as a ticket owner, you waive all rights to any and all prizes won by each ticket owner and/or of the group.

                   

                  • If someone is unable to sign, someone may contribute the $2.00 on their behalf and can sign for them (ie..John Doe for Jane Smith), the person signing is not the ticket owner rather the person they are signing for is the ticket owner.   Signature by one for another constitutes either full accepance of this agreement or waiver of any and all prize money won by any or all of the other ticket owners or of the group. If the prize money is waived, it will be equally distributed to the other ticket owners.

                   

                  • There are no verbal agreements.

                    Why do you sent a picture of only one ticket?

This is the only ticket the group and each ticket owners own together.   It is understood that several ticket holders play the lottery outside of the group and only the winnings of the group ticket are the shared winnings.

                        Beacause there is only one QP tix with 5 lines.  Each of us threw in $2.00.

                          Will there still only be "a ticket" if 11 people throw in?

                            What if everyone wants to increase their chances by a multiple of 10 and throw in $20. each instead of $2. each, how many "a ticket" will there be after that?
