    Sorry, but it won't happen.

    You are better off finding neighbors or co-workers.

    What you want to do is a logistical nightmare.

                OK! Seriously.....who are you going to trust?

                Let's start with that, and systematically move to the next dillema...and so on....

                I think that's a good one to start with, don't you think?....

                Personally, I wouldn't send any money to anyone I've never met, because I can always be taken by someone who would show themselves as a very nice person, especially with the internet, and all the eyes reading this post, I can almost imagine someone already doing their homework, on how to make a quick buck. I'm not talking about true LP members, but the outside lurkers.

                  Well.,,i can answer some part of it.,we can trust member,who are here for a while,and the way they talk.We could do it somehow thru lawyers,or something.2 years ago,i worked in village hall,and come up with idea to do lottery pool.I was maintenance there..and i work ther for 3 years..Those people know me only from work..and i was going thru each department collecting 1$ when mm jackpot hits over 150 milliion,,,i brought tickets,and they were kept in safe place in the building.I can say this right now..you could all trust me,if you will decide to do it.I just dont know how.All i know,is this website is a prove,to anyone who is willing to do it.This is why i want more people to read it,and come up with some ideas.If mm jackpot hits over 100+ millions,and we hit it,we all know we won,who took part in it.If i will be the one,who will buy tickets,you will all come to illinois,with prove from this website,and we collect money....i just wait for more ideas

                    "Well.,,i can answer some part of it.,we can trust member,who are here for a while,and the way they talk."

                    The clerks in the stores where I buy my tickets talk very nice and some even say "good luck" after I buy my tickets.  I've seen them selling tickets at the same stores for several months but I wouldn't trust any of them to buy and check my lottery tickets for me.  What make you think any LP member would trust a stranger in Chicago more?

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

                          The reason,i come up with this idea is because i know,here is many smart members on this website,and we all could figure out good system,if we could join togheter,and try to win.I can bet,we could be all over the net,,if we do this,and win.I am just trying to figure out the way,the safest way for everyone,to be sure they gets money,if we hit that jackpot.

                          Lest say....you pacattack05,,buy those tickets,,,i send u my 10$,and we hit jackpot.I have prove from here..that i was one of those who took part in it,,i have a lawyer....and i call your state lottery,,and i go there with my prove,from this website,that i get part of the jackpot,so is other 50 lottery post members,who were on the list.

                            I am not in Chicago area.

                            I like the idea of lottery pool. When MM or PB is higher than 100 million, assuming each member will be satisfied if his/her share is more than 2 million, then 50 members play togeter will increase the chance for every member by 50 fold. Assuming each player play 10 bucks each draw, the odds of winning jackpot is 1 in 300,000 (win 2 million each), much better than 1 in 15,000,000 if one plays alone (win 100 million).

                            The chance of wining match 5 will become 1 in 8,000 (win $5,000 each), comparing to 1 in 400,000 when plays alone (win $250,000). I mentioned match 5 prize not because $5000 is a huge win, but to point out that a $5000 win could mean another 500 times of free play, bring the overall chance of jackpot to 1 in 600. Also, comparing the odds of JP when play in pool to the odds of match 5 when play alone, you can see that the odds are similar, but in pool you will win 2 million, alone you only win 0.2 million.

                            Good luck, bob27!

                              I get your point, however, It hardly seems worth the effort. Hiring lawyers, secretaries, messengers, video conferences, signing enless paperwork, policing to make sure everyone is on the up and up, follow ups designated by people on a payroll, on and on.

                              Thanx, but I'll just take my chances with a trillion to one, all by myself....LOL
