    Green laugh I never knew there was such a thing til you guys told me about them, and I started seeing them sitting at the terminals in the stores.

    I wouldn't buy a mistake ticket. It would complicate everything if I won something significant. The original purchaser may sue, the store owner may sue. It's better to buy a ticket fresh from the counter. True I would most likely prevail in the end but it is not worth the headache.

      Everybody oughta just kick in another 10 bucks and get the PB tickets and hope for the best on the MM tickets.

      Mistakes happen, especially in lottery pools.

      I mean c'mon, it's only ten bucks, wtf?

      And give any cheapskates who don't want to participate their money back before the drawing.

      Thats a good point Ridge.  I mean, dont these pool players have jobs?Roll Eyes

      Scared money dont win.  Cough it up poolies!

          Yeah, now they have 3 choices. Sell them and buy PB. Keep them. Or keep them AND buy the PB.

              A "mistake" by definition means someone walked away from it. Finders keepers, losers Crying.

                      Thanks.

                      But even if the cheapos get their money back and then the pool wins, they'll probably still sue.

                      I hate cheapskates.

                      Don't like lottery pools much either unless it's close family.
