Would any of the Members here on Lottery Post consider teaming up selecting numbers for the National Jackpot games?

How many people would you want on your team? 1, 2, 3, more?

What would the conditions be?

You would contribute to the number selection process and play identical tickets in your respected states. Thus possibly sharing the Jackpot with 1 or 2 or more folks. Would the Jackpot need to be more than 20 million? 100 Million?

How many lines would you play on average?

What's your take?

      Thanks MADDOG10, I agree with you 100%.

      That was my vote also.

      Anything to increase the odds of winning Ten million dollars if a 20 million jackpot was split between two people.

      I'm not greedy. Cheers

            Yes definitely.

            I always wondered what would happen if you had 4 people and they selected 3 WB's and 1 PB.  So instead of focusing on making a combination of 5 they only focused on what 3 WB's they thought would hit in the next draw.  For 4 people that would be a maximum of 12 WB's and 4 PB's which would be similiar to MADDOG challenge.  You can wheel a 3 if 3 of 12 for $29.  Can 4 people concentrating on 3 WB's and 1 PB beat 1 person selecting 12 WB's and 4 PB's?  I don't know but I think the right 4 people who took it serious might.

                I would be surprised if some members aren't trying that already.  I know I have been contacted several times over the years about a similar idea but never got involved because I didn't want to obligated to follow a plan to pick my numbers and spend my money by a plan dictated partly by someone I didn't know.  Maybe if the plan was a one shot deal planned in advance for when a jackpot was $200M+, I might be interested but not for a long haul.

                Other than that, members are already posting their picks on the prediction board and sharing their systems for picking numbers so in a way the cooperation is already there naturally.

                  Yes, I am interested. I am already in a pool that plays Mega Millions and Powerball when the jackpot is large. But I would like to join as many pools as possible. The more pools I am in, the better the odds.

                              I think the suggestion was for lottery teams, not lottery pools.  You would be contributing to the number selections but you would have to buy your own tickets, so you wouldn't have the advantages of playing in a lottery pool.
