Let´s say you have: $60 a week to join a pool group to play lottery pool....Well i dont know is there are pools who will take: $10 a week [i am not a pool expert], but what if you took the $60 a week and divided it into: $10 and join: 6 different lotto pool teams...That way you increase your chances...Even if you share is smaller...You will be employing the: ¨Is better to win anything than not to win at all kind of philosophy¨...

What do you all think...

What to remind everyone that: POOLING is the BEST LOTTERY SYSTEM OUT THERE, no matter WHAT system you got...

The Forex trades: 1.6 Trillion dollars EVERY day, that´s more than the GDP of the Carribbean Central America, COMBINED. Enough to feed every crook out there for centuries...To all Geniuses & Powers Countries of the World the Planet needs breakthroughs in all Medicine, Veterinary, Biology related fields, Psychology, Population Psychology/Sociology..They need to genetically ingeneer new plants species/types to give more variety of plants and thus have more resources for combating diseases¨

          Lottery pools are the result of simply more numbers being played by more people...that's it. If you'll take one person that spends the same amount of money, they have just as much of a chance of winning as several people in a pool. Difference is that in a loss, the pool loses LESS money than the SINGLE person that spends the same money, okay.

          Pools are designed to play MORE for LESS...INDIVIDUALLY for a TOTAL amount. Due to the total number count, the increase in chances of winning is actually MINIMAL. It's been proven.

              How many people in the pool?

              When all is said and done, if you wanted to opt for cash and the pool doesn't, what then?

              What if they do opt for cash and the prize is split so many ways that you have participated in winning a jackpot and still have to work? Everyone winds up with a few more bucks and thats about it?

              Just things to consider.

              Don't let the desire of wanting to win put you in a spot where you get a share of a jackpot, but nothing else changes much.

              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.

                With overall odds of 1 in 40 of winning anything playing PB or MM you don't have a reasonable chance of winning something by playing lesser amounts. If you can get into pool with 7 other players each contributing $5 you'll give yourself a better chance. The problem is your share is only 1/8 of the winnings.

                I played in a pool with 29 other players for quite a while and we all lost money; just not as much as playing alone. If you do play alone and the game has overall odds of 1 in 40, don't get upset when you buy 20 tickets and win nothing.

                    I would consider joining a pool as long as it wasn't run by some scam artist, you know, like somebody from Kentucky or something.

                          I run a pool with my coworkers.  We have 13 people in it and on payday(every other Friday), we each contribute $4.  What I do is buy an assortment of multidraw Powerball and Lotto tickets that cover the next 4 drawings.  If we win anything, we usually put it towards more Powerball or Lotto tickets.  Both times when  Louisiana had it's Millionaire Raffle game, I took a vote of the membership in regard to if we should keep buying more Powerball/Lotto or a Millionaire Raffle ticket and both times, the majority voted to take a shot at the Raffle.

                          Running a pool is a lot of work though, keeping up with everyone's money, going to the store to get tickets, etc.  For the last couple of months, I've had to keep going back to the store to get tickets because Louisiana suspended multidraws because they were upgrading their computer system and sales terminals.  The new system finally went online Sunday, so I will only have to go back every 2 weeks until they either change the Powerball matrix or do another upgrade.

                          We haven't won big yet, but who knows?  The best we've done is around $50 on one ticket, but we keep trying.

                              i ran a pool of 7 people , but a few just messed around, i cant be in this week, or some such. ended up 5 people where regular and we have been playing for like 6 years maybe more. i stopped running it, but another guy took over. so once it settled down to 5 regular members its been cool. what you dont want for a pool os people to be in and out and back in on a whim, they'll be the ones suing when u finally do win something big.
