    Now that almost all states have MegaMillions and Powerball, I think Todd might find a way to initiate working jackpot game lottery pools.

    Basically, xxx number of players would collaborate by email and decide which numbers to play.

    Todd, or trusted assistant, would be the banker. He  would be paid a small commission.

    Players would deposit xx dollars in advance, sending required amount to the banker by Money Order (No personal checks or cash).

    The banker would purchase the tickets and distribute the winnings.

    There are several LP members who have workable systems, but can't afford to buy a large number of tickets for each drawing.

    These would NOT be pools where people toss in a dollar and want to be notified about wins.

    These would WORKING pools where each player would have particular tasks to perform.

              bobby623,

              I'm not sure if any of that would be legal. Not positive about that, but........

              For a short time I was involved in a multi-level marketing business where the product was Powerball tickets. This was just before home computers got real popular. The guy who put it together was a database whizz. Face it, the sales where already made so he just turned it into a business. It was the only multi-level I was ever involved in where I actually got checks.

              Then one day he sent out a letter saying he himself had gotten a "cease and desist "letter from the government, and that was that.

              Another incident was a guy who worked in Las Vegas that was the runner for people in his casino buying California lottery tickets. The lotto outlet was in a very small desert town not too far from the Caifornial - Nevada border. This was before Primm opened on I-15.

              Nevada actually has a law against bringing lottery tickets back to Nevada for people other than yourself. The guy only got caught because he had a steno pad, a long, long list of numbers to play, and was tying up the terminal.

              The Nevada Gaming Commission told him to stop or he'd lose his sherriff's card, which is necessary for working in casinos.

              The MUSL (and the Massachusetts lottery) can sell tickets across state lines but I don't think individuals can.

              Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

              Lep

              There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                Hi, Coin Toss!

                Are office pools illegal?

                Would it be illegal if 9 other people joined with me and paid an equal amount to buy 100 combinations for a particular drawing?

                This kind of activity goes on all the time all over the country. I've never heard that any of the pool players that hit a jackpot game were later
                arrested.

                I think it might be illegal if I charged fellow players more than the  cost of a single ticket.

                Would it be different if the 9 other people are in different states?

                IMHO there are many  individual LP players who would gladly join a pool, if there are provisions insuring that their money will actually
                be used to buy tickets, and that they would receive an equal share of the winnings.

                But, maybe Todd wouldn't be interested in setting up and managing a trustworthy pool system.

                  Here's my own personal litmus test for determining if something is legal or not:

                  If there's money involved and the federal government is not getting a piece of it, it's illegal.

                  They may not bother with small scale or occasional office pools but if they can pin you down on something seemingly highly organized and/or cash intensive and especially being conducted on an interstate basis they'll want their pound of flesh (if they're not getting a piece of the action).

                  This is just my opinion, not based on specific knowledge of the law but rather just observing the nature of the beast for many years.

                    bobby623,

                    An "office pool" being run on the internet and crossing state and national lines would not be legal.

                    From the Powerball website FAQ page:

                    CAN I BUY POWERBALL TICKETS THROUGH THE INTERNET?

                    No, at least not in the way that you might hope. Powerball ticketscan only legally be purchased at a state lottery sales terminal in thelottery jurisdictions that sells the Powerball game. A lottery canlegally sell tickets on the Internet, but only to persons within itsown state. No one can sell lottery tickets by mail or over the Internetacross state lines or the U.S. national border. No one. Not even us. Noone. No, not even that vendor. Or that one. You really don't need tosend me questions about a specific site. Like all others, it cannotlegally sell lottery tickets across a state border or the U.S. border.No.

                    Any Internet lottery site that purports to sell Powerball tickets, or“shares” of Powerball tickets to purchasers or to run a “service” foryou, is operating illegally. They are not authorized by the Multi-StateLottery Association or by any U.S. lottery. There are legal Internetsales of lottery tickets in some states or countries, but only withinthe borders of that state/country or by agreement between nations. TheUnited States has no agreements with any other nation to allow lotterytickets sales across the national border.

                    The laws of your state prohibit the purchase of another state’s lotteryticket across state lines. Federal laws also make out-of-state lotteryplays across a state line illegal. But note that you can legally travelto another state, buy a ticket, and bring it back to your home state.Most countries prohibit the purchase of lottery tickets across theirborder. the United States does. No. If it ever does become legal, wewill sell tickets here for $1. No.

                    Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                    Lep

                    There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                        Coin Toss

                        Although I think folks have been buying out-of-state lottery games via USA Mega, Betslips and similar internet sites, it probably isn't legal.
                        I don't know one way or the other.

                        I use to buy Poweball tickets via an on-line service. The tickets were bought legally and mailed to me.

                        Since almost all states are now selling both games, I don't need to do that anymore. I can buy all I want right here in Texas.

                        I probably couldn't legally buy games on-line in the New York or Florida lottos, if for some reason I wanted to play those games.

                        However, if I had a relative who lives in New York and he/she bought me a ticket, I don't see a problem. This goes on all the time.

                        The point is, the pools I'm talking about are those where the tickets are legally purchased here in Texas, and the total cost is shared by other players. There is no legal question, as far as I can see.

                        Why would MUSL object if Todd was to purchase 100 Powerball tickets in New Jersey where he lives, and then sought out an X number of
                        players to help offset the cost?

                        Would he have to find players who live in New Jersey?

                        If 9 of my out-of-state  relatives, friends, acquaintances or Lottery Post members want to participate in a pool by sharing the cost of games I generate using my Gap Strategy system, I don't think the lotteries, law enforcement or anyone would object. Nothing is being sold. The tickets are purchased at a Texas lotto dealer. The 9 players aren't buying tickets, they are sharing the cost in hopes of winning a jackpot.

                        No tickets are mailed, although the combinations to be played would be sent to players via the internet.

                        If the winners report their wins and pay the taxes, the IRS probably wouldn't care either.

                        I guess there are a lot of 'fine lines' involved.

                        I just hate to think that no member of LP could participate in a jackpot game pool being run by another member who happens to reside in New Jersey, Texas, Ohio (if RJOH started a pool) or any other state where tickets can be purchased directly at a legal sales outlet.

                              "I use to buy Poweball tickets via an on-line service. The tickets were bought legally and mailed to me."

                              I think if Powerball wanted to take that to court, once the ticlets were mailed to you it wasn't legal anymore.

                              I just think that for all the people, money exchanged, and jurisdictions that would be involved for running a pool on LP either the lottery itself, the MUSL, or some government entity woud step in and say "No no no!."

                              Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                              There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.
