Soo many times is been a big issue  about money  distribution. May be all participants should sign a legal document about the rules involve. Rules need to be spelled out .. for example rule one says that every week participant must contribute $10 so the next week for some reason or exuse and you don't bring your $10 and the prize is won you get $0 ..  What do you think ?  fair or not fair ?  thanks for your responses ..

    Are you talking about lottery polls or lottery pools?

     * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

        I like lottery polls and rules.   Yes Nod

        I think the more rules the better. If you are taking a poll, my vote is for non-stop, unlimited and very restrictive rules.  Smash

                There are many stories about a pool being sued by former and part time players after the pool won a jackpot, but I've never read where a pool was sued after winning minor secondary prizes.

                  The key to running a stress-free lottery pool is to keep the downstroke high enough to scare off the cheapskates.

                  Cuz the cheapskates will generate 99% of any problems you encounter and 100% of any lawsuits afterward.

                          would you go in an office pool if one was offered at work, ran by someone else?  could you risk being the only  one of the original employees still there?

                            The true participator , meaning the individuals Who contributed faithfuly deserve his/her share  accordingly ..

                              No lawyer is going to take a case where he's not getting at least $50K to cover his charges, which means his client has to be suing for at least $150K.
