Are you in a lottery pool? Do you have terms of agreement and operation in writing? How much have you won in any one drawing? Do you forsee any drama if you hit the big jackpot?

    Yes, i'am, the other members are me and myself.

    we did't write out an agreement or rules because we all agree on everything,

    and will split it in three even shares. LOL

      i used to be in a work pool...nothing was signed...but everybody who played got a copy of the tickets...either on paper, or in pdf...

      its good in pdf so that way the "pool heads" can make specific mailing lists for certain people...all admissible in court if need be.

      i quit the pool when they decided to overthrow my idea for a $50 wheel...

      with $50 in quick pics...

      i think if you have pool it would be a good idea to have all the members in the pool take a group photo...

      have a list of names...have each person sign next to there name...

      so if you have to go in front of the judge you could be like...hey...he is not in our pool...look, he is not in the photo...and also his name is not on the list.. and there is no signature...

      that would be a first step

      i trusted all the people from work...i did not anticipate any drama...

        Did you guys play every drawing or when the annuity dollar value got to a certain level?

          sheesh you could not pry a dollar from there cold stingy hands until the jack reached at least 250 million...

          when you heard people talking about the jackpot you knew it was time to get ready...

          we didnt win much...

          everybody had copies of the tickets...i only checked the mega ball...if the mega ball did not win then it didnt really matter the rest of the line.. i would glance at the line to see if min 2 scored...

          its a real pain to collect money though...

          its like he gave 1 dollar...he gave 2 dollar...the other person gave 3 dollars...

          in that situation i would also say that there should be a clause where the payouts are prorated based on how much is put in.

            one challenge with lottery pools is the quantity of tickets...

            who is gonna fill out say 20 or 50 playslips...

            you would need computer help and printed playslips...

            i know that illegal someplaces...but the clerks dont really check...

              That's only a pain if you change numbers every play right? If more money is added to the pool buy QPs or assign that person to fill out the payslip and turn it in.

              $250m? Wow! They must be playing respectively at lower levels and you guys only choose to come together when it would be worth splittibg among several people!

                I just started a family pool. I will be picking all the tickets of course :) There will be 3 of us playing $30 each for only one draw per month on mega millions. I do plan on copying all the tickets and sending them to each person

                  I don't typically talk to people from your State. All my numbers I play in Florida come out in Ohio - lol.

                   

                  How will you determine when in the month to play?

                    LOL. I told them I will collect the money on the first and play as soon as the jackput gets over 50mil or atleast by the end of the money. Shall see how it goes.

                        Are you in a lottery pool? Yes, I am the pool manager.

                        Do you have terms of agreement and operation in writing? Yes and yes.

                        How much have you won in any one drawing? the most we won was 100.00 we got 4 numbers.

                        Do you forsee any drama if you hit the big jackpot? No I do not. We are well documented.

                          4 numbers not bad at all. It's a start in the right direction

                              I'm not nor have I ever been in a lottery pool. I was seriously considering starting one at work until I read several posts and related news articles on this site. I've decided to avoid pools altogether...the probability of experiencing aggravation after a win is greater than actually hitting a win. No interest in that.
