Hi,

 

Any one belong to a lottery club in the US?

 

Trying to find new info - LP has a lot of older posts on this subject.

 

Personally, I never heard of these...

 

Thanks,

 

Lucky

    What's the difference between a lottery club and a lottery pool?  Over the years LP news has had a few stories about lottery pools but I only remember reading one about a lottery club.

    I never belonged to a lottery club but before I retired I was a member of several lottery pools where I worked.

      I think in a lottery club you get a free t-shirt and use logic reason and mathematics to play smartpicks.Smash

      People also play more consistently and intelligently (also less greedily) with reasonable division of labor.

      In a lottery pool, nobody wants to do any work, you only wait till the jackpot is astronomical (or becoming so) and you get dumbpicks.Puke

        You make it sounds like if one wants to play with a group then a lottery club is the better way to go.  I now play alone and have all the advantages of a club except for the free t-shirt.

          A lottery club would be also a group of people trying to master random and get rich.

          I would go out on a limb and say a lottery club is a group of people interested in the game.

          A lottery pool would just be a group of people trying to get rich who dont really have any interest in the game at all.

          In a pool generally the only one who is interested in the game is the person who collects the money.  Everybody else is just interested in winning, and only cough up dough when the greed factor kicks in.  The one who collects the money also buys the tickets and generally is the only person who does the work of the pool.

          One is the lonliest club that you ever did see.

          Its all about the free t-shirt RJ!!!

            True but when I win I'm glad it's the loneliest club that I ever did see, a split of one is easier.
