Your right its a Crap Shoot, its a 1 time thing for us. I will never be able to play this kind of money again, better do it now. I will post every week to let U know if we hit it

First you said you're in Afghanistan for a year, then you said 6 months. Which is it? And are you military or civilian?

    rdgrnr, I had to read over that again too after I saw your post. I think the OP means he's in the pool for

    another 6 months...maybe those were the terms of what he signed. Big Smile

          Ah, I see now. Stay safe, watch your back and surroundings. Remember the odds of the top prize, tough

          to catch. That is one game where I would consider winning: (and tiggs would appreciate this one Big Smile)

          Pure Luck.

          If you don't play, you can't win would be the optimistic approach to things, I guess.

          Good luck to you and your group.

            You are breaking a few Federal laws.  NOTHING having to do with a lottery (including the slips showing your picks and money or copies, etc.) is in violation of US Postal laws and USC code.  Any money transactions MUST be by HANDING the money to the person.  Again US code.  You guys might be coming home earlier than you thought, if you are caught.  All of this has been discussed and US Code quoted here on LP in the distant past.

                Wow!  That is a lot.  I run a lottery group with 13 people in it and we are spending a total of $208/month.  I get $4 from each member every 2 weeks on payday and buy Powerball and Louisiana Lotto tickets for the 4 drawings between paydays.  We've had a couple of$100 wins, but not the big one yet.  Starting with the next round next week, I'll be adding MegaMillion to the mix.  With all 3 games, maybe we'll finally hit it.

                  yeah, its a lot of $$$ each member spends $200 a month. I never could get a group back in the states with that type of spending power. If it doesnt hit soon, I will close the group. $18 grand in 6 months without all 6 numbers aint worth it

                    I have a couple of group lotteries I run at work. The main one is the New York lottery. I have approx. 13 people in that, each player puts 2 bucks up for both nights. The second one is a smaller group of approx. 5 . Each player puts up an additional 4 dollars to cover both Powerball and Mega games. I try to keep it affordable and in moderation. Im confident we win win.Smash
