I think if you're going to do a lottery pool, go all out.  Get a whole bunch !  I voted more than 10.  But, like most of the others, I don't do lottery pools.  I am too greedy.  Plus, there is all that legal stuff I'm not interested in doing either.

    Any number of people in a lottery pool is fine as long everyone is agreeable about the amount of money each contributes. 

    Personally, if the pool isn't buying more tickets then I usual buy on my own, I not interested in it.  For example I'm not interested in being in a pool that buys $5 worth of tickets, I would rather buy that many tickets on my own.

    I Agree!

          Pools are a great way to increase your odds of AT LEAST hitting something.  Even splitting 250k among 10 people is still good to me.  At one place I worked we tried a TAKE 5 (NY) pool - we tried all qp's and then we tried picking the #'s.  Neither way got us more then $25 bucks and there were10 of us.  It only lasted about 2 months then we gave up. 

          I am in another pool which is called 'retirement fund' as the employer of the person doing it doesn't allow for gambling. 

          Money won is twice as good as money earned!

                  1 is the best way to play because of obvious reasons, but if I had to play in a pool I would play with 10.

                  I love doubles and remember, it's just a game!!!!!!
