Hello to members of Lottery Post. Allow me to introduce myself. I am a Canadian lottery player.

A friend of mine told me about this group last week. I have spent the last couple of days reading hundreds and hundreds of posts. Lots of very interesting information and discussions. I am looking forward to contributing.

As per my tagline, I consider group play as my main strategy. I mainly play Canadian lotteries as a member and organizer of lottery groups. On occasion, when I travel, I will also play the US lotteries.

I have noticed a lot of negative views towards group play. I have also read a couple of horror stories in the news section where group play ended up in court.

Maybe I will be able to convince some of you that group play is the way to go. If not, then well, no harm done.

Take care and keep up the interesting discussions.

    Welcome to LP. I usually play alone, as I do not wish to split a smaller jackpot. A huge one however is a different story. I pool up with no more than 2 people max, and only during high jackpots.

          Todd,

          I am not interested in selling anything. I only wish to promote and exchange ideas.

            Glad to hear it.  There have been LOTS of people who think Lottery Post is their personal advertising space for their Internet pool (syndicate) schemes, and it's a pain to delete their messages and cancel their accounts.  That's why I just wanted to be sure that wasn't the direction things would go here.

              Todd,

              I need to understand what you mean by "advertising a lottery scheme".

              For example, if one were to ask people to throw $5 in a pool and buy tickets where the organizer does not take a cut or charge money - in other words, organized just like a office lottery pool. Is that considered advertising? Is that allowed?

              I am not suggesting I want to do this. I just need to know the rules.

              In the meantime, allow me to offer my opinion. I have seen many schemes where there are fees to join a group because the group organizer claims to have inside knowledge or special powers. I find those claims bogus. If one had inside knowledge or special powers then one does not need other people's money.

                I think I'd have to get to "know" you a bit longer before considering allowing that kind of posting.  I do my best to protect the members here against scams, so if a brand new member comes on soliciting contributions to a "pool", that makes me suspicious.

                  LottoGroups,

                  Pool managers are usually too lazy to come up with any strategy for winning a lottery other than buying lots of tickets using other people money and even then they expect to be paid.  If you're dealing with one over the internet or phone , it's probably a scam which doesn't involve buying any lottery tickets at all.

                  Sharing lottery strategies and asking people to send money for a lottery scheme are not the same and you're not so dumb that you don't know the different.  If you have some real strategies for pool players, I look forward to reading your posts.

                    You can't win a jackpot if you play in a pool.  There are also risks playing on your own while playing in a pool because if you win a jackpot on your own the pool members will sue you especially if you have anything to do with running the pool or buying/holding the tickets.  On the other hand, only a fool plays in a pool they don't run themselves if they have a valid strategy to win and the only thing they need is capital.  If the people at work want you to kick in $5.00 bucks for the $200 million draw and you don't have to do anything more, well that's ok.  BobP

                      I Agree! If someone has developed a good strategy for a lottery pool and have shared it with LP members, some of them make want to try it with their co-workers or families and friends next time the PowerBall or MegaMillion jackpot goes over $200M.  Playing on your own if you're also managing a lottery pool can lead to confusion and bad feelings if you win big with your own tickets, it should be avoided.
