Hi I'm new around here. found about the site some time ago when i was looking for the winning powerball numbers and came across

a youtube vid that had the sites name on it. funny thing was, one of the numbers was wrong lol. 

been lurking since then, and decided to finally join. I hope to be a contributing member to the site as time goes on.

I'm a computer programmer, and I make websites in my spare time.

As a hobby of mine I spend my time looking for patterns in lottery games.

I have a few theories, but until I win something big with them, I can't say they even work yet.

now that introductions are out of the way.......

 

Is it illegal to form a business with the sole intention of using it to win the lottery?

I was thinking about start a massive lottery pool and put ads in the paper and online for people who wanted to get in.

I am just not sure if its against any laws, specifically in NY.

      Welcome to Lottery Post liquidmetalix!

      What you're talking about is just a lottery pool or a lottery club, not a business. No problem advertising that as far as I know unless maybe you're talking about charging a membership fee or dues to generate an income aside from lottery winnings. Then it would probably be considered a business and you'd have to abide by all the legal requirements relative to that. 

      Best of luck to you!LepThumbs UpYes Nod

        oh ok. no i don't plan on charging any type of fee's whatsoever. any income gained will be purely from lottery tickets bought by the pool. 
        my idea in a nutshell would be to rent out somewhere (preferably a large office space) and people are able to come in and add to the pool whatever amount they want over $10. all prizes will be distributed based on a percentage of how much each person put in the pool for that drawing.
        all numbers played will be entered into a sql database so that way they may be viewed by pool members at any time from our website.
        all tickets will be scanned prior to each drawing and their images will be uploaded to the site as well so that members may print them out at their
        own leisure for their own personal copies.
        the space will remain open until after the drawing has ended, so anyone who wants to wait there till then is welcome to do so.
        after the drawing, we will then check our numbers (using our lotto software) and if there are any winners, amounts will be posted on the site, and depending on how much it is cash may be divied out at that time or on the following day.
        for members who are not there at that time, money will be sent via paypal to them.
        in the event of a major jackpot, all members will be notified immediatally after the drawing has ended, so that we may then decide on how best to go about it.

         

        we will be covering all NY games (not sure how i handle numbers and pick 4 yet)

        sounds like a good plan?

            Sounds like something that has been tried before.  You might google lottery pools and lottery clubs to see if any of them are still around.

                Sounds like the numbers runners where I worked. One guy gave $6 worth of play for $5 and paid $600 to $1; it was a very competitive business.
