      Maybe if I knew how to write a thread topic, I might get more responses!

       

      It should read: "How many of you play in a Lottery Pool?"

       

      But, I'm sure most have figured that out already!Roll Eyes

        yeah im in 2 pools, they have been long running, and no ones dropped out. never had a big win to test how things go lawyer wise.

         

        one is all my family 5 of usin that.  and the other is me and 4 buddies.  then i play my own tickets.   i dont know how people in 1 syndicate will react to the other one winning , and vice a virsa , but i dont plan on telling anyone  who doesnt need to know , untill cash is safely in my hands. ermm i mean the correct hands.

         

        I used to run another with just a pal and I , but the place that accepted credit card orders , decided not to take them anymore. and stopped accepting orders out of state.  so we canned that.

        2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016  = -1171; 2017 = ?  TOT =  -3596

        keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= -424; 2017 = ? TOT = - 3318

          I play in 2 pools all the time.  One for Mega Millions with 17 members and one for PowerBall with 24 members.  Everyone in the MM pool is in the PB pool.  We reinvest small wins in extra tickets (less than $50).   We have won and split $150 several times.  Both pools have been going for over 5 years.

            That's a pretty loyal group you got there!  5yrs, seems like y'all are due!  We've been playing in a 10 member pool for 1.5yrs.  Seems like we are due too!  Your odds are much steeper than the regular Lotto!Big Smile

              The next question is, how many tickets does your pool purchase?

              We have a 18-person PB pool and we play $5/week each.  We buy 40 tickets per draw when the jackpot is under 100 million, then wait to reinvest any winnings (and any leftovers from the weekly purchases) when the jackpot is higher, usually 60-70 per draw when the pot allows. We've just been doing this for a few months now, since August.
