The person holding the tickets should scan them and send them via email. Winnings is something you will have to take up with the administrator of the pool you are involved in.

    a lottery club is a whole different matter. It's against the law to mail lottery tickets. in your case you should have some papers drawn up to include all the members in the pool have each sign the form as to how the money will be disbursed should you win. And include any incidentals like one person might want cash another might want annuity. Each person should agree on only one form of disbursement. Having different payment methods will be a pain.
    Assign a designated person to purchase all the tickets in one name for the group. Unless of course the ticket service will allow multiple names on the purchase in the clubs name. If you all win then more than likely you will all have to be present to claim the prize and fill out the claim forms. No matter what every detail of winning should be discussed and agreed upon and signed in writing. This way no one can refute the rules of engagement.

        Just read the rules and be wary of them so that you don't get hosed in the event of a jackpot win. I know that betslips allows you to play, but they own 1% of the ticket, which isn't all that bad, if you ask me.

        PTS is hosted by Todd he approved the site and uses the service himself he would sponcer the site if it wern't safe and secure.

        No, that's not correct.  I do not host PTS.

        I did investigate them, and I heartily recommend them, but saying that I host them implies something else entirely.  Saying I host them means that they pay me for the use my web space for their web site, and that is not the case.  They host their site someplace else, and I really have nothing to do with that.

          Is ist legal to play powerball online??? Who do you recommend.....??? Saw Lottery Universe and they pay only up to a million......

           

          Let me know,

           

          Thanks

           

           

          Hopefully you would never seriously consider playing at that web site.  Why would you pay a web site $2 per "ticket" for a 1 in 176,000,000 change of winning $1 million?  That's just plain wacky.

              sorry about that boss i should of worded my responce better. Trying to get my point that PTS was a safer outfit to work with than his first choice.

                MrJohn,

                Every lottery buying service work fine when you aren't winning.  The real question should be "Have you collected more money than you spent?".  

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

                  Still I don't know now Todd I think I used the term host appropriately. As a host implies that their service is on your site. They don't have to pay to be hosted. If I were invited to your house you would be the host. I'm not paying you to come to the invite.

                  If prime time is not paying you and they are on your site you are their host. (I do not know) got me scratching head now.

                  in either event my intention was to show that prime time was located on this site and some people who are members on this site use prime time services.

                    No, I am not their host, just like I am not Amazon.com's host (I display ads for both companies).

                    PTS is not located on this website.  Their ad is posted here (that's all), and they host their web site on their own web server, not mine.
