Here is an idea. I will buy the mistake tickets. Then he can buy the the PB lines and tell them that an LP member rescued them and bought the tickets so they could play PB tonight. Hows that?

    well yea, but if he ponys up the $210 then he owns the mistake tickets, and thats fine,

    unless one of them mistakes wins big, then what ?

    He would obviously be hunted down by the rest of his co-workers for their half.

      Too bad if he buys the mistakes.... They are his to keep. They are mad and don't want they obviously?

      Of course, I agree w/you, but do you think that the pool will, if a mistake wins big ?

      not sure what the MM JP is at this time.

        You will have to wire the money, and the tickets might get lost in the mail.  And the clock is ticking.

        A very risky proposition at this late stage in the game.

                The only way this will end well is if the PB rolls and none of the pool's #s come out on 2nd tier prizes,

                if they were QPs then it's a bunch of what ifs.

                  What if one of those tickets turns out to be a jackpot winner? Everybody would praise the kid.

                        That true, but Im certain the focus is on the PB $200+ million.

                          True.

                          That's the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat for you.

                          Basically the kid is a virtual goat until friday, where then he most likely will become bonafide goat.

                          Besides if they were really thrifty, the 20 pool members would have only needed to just chipped in .10 cent each for a guaranteed QP win.  (just like those asset managers tom tom and bill)

                            Exactly, thats why I thought even him buying the mistakes would not solve the problem,

                            unless he ponys up the $210 and still let's the pool own the mistakes.

                              I dunno ronnie.  He might let you wire the money and then wait until after the drawing to mail them.

                              He would have to document himself putting the tickets in the mailbox on his smartphone, and then post the video on youtube as evidence.
