As I've said before here, I run a lottery pool at work with 10 coworkers for a total of 11 people in it. We always want to win but right now, I want us to win more than ever. I want this to happen right now because one of our members has been battling lung cancer for the last few months. She's had to do chemotherapy and they aren't sure if it's working. She can retire now, but hasn't done so yet. I'd like to win so she can retire and live out whatever time she has with no worries. She loves sailboats and I'd like to see her be able to get some waterfront property and the nicest sailboat money can buy. Don't know how much time she'll have, but whatever it is, I want it to be happy.

Not looking for sympathy or anything like that, just wanted to share this with all the great people here on Lotterypost.

    Right there with you prisoner. There are 2 ladies in our pool that have been fighting breast cancer for almost a year. Both are just about finished with their treatments, but the med bills are still there to be paid for years to come. I've been hoping...wishing we could win so they won't be paying med bills for the rest of their lives.

      Why don't you get people like movie star. To give you money to help out. Why not get people to give money from here. Why not buy lottery ticket that you can win over 1 million dollars. Blackhawks fan wins $5 million after emergency bathroom stop at CVS. That person can help. It just a idea.

        I hear ya RCB, We have a friend of the family who has a 5 year old that developed cancer and is in a children's specialty facility. Her heart cant handle the treatments  so now she has a mechanical heart and has been put on the national register for a transplant. They family has no insurance and the mother is also battling cancer when this hit them. If I could hit the big one, that is one place that I would first address for giving. No questions asked

          Maybe you should try changing your pool, from a PB/MM pool, to a Pick 4 pool instead.  You might have more luck winning quicker, by playing a different lottery game.  Pool your money to win Pick 4Just a $20 bet on a winning Pick 4 number in STRAIGHT form, wins $100,000. How much $$$ do you typically play, when you pool ???

          The point is, perhaps you should DOWNSIZE from Million Dollar expectations, to THOUSAND dollar expectations, instead.  You might win faster, b/c it's easier to win at Pick 4, than PB/MM.  Your Psychological BLOCK, in your Pooling strategy, might very well be that you've been playing the Wrong lottery games for too long, and your pool is psychologically stuck in PB/MM mindset, b/c you want to win the Millions of dollars.

          Any amount of Money won, should be accepted with GRATITUDE, especially when someone is critically ill, and needs to pay medical bills.   

          Small amounts won [$100,000], add up over time, and winning serves to create a New Group Mindset of Belief, and that New Energy of Belief, continues to attract more winnings [Universal Law of Attraction].  You can pay your debts off, and put away a $$$ nest egg, over time. Patience is a Divine Virtue. In any case, this is the only practical and realistic way to accomplish this, playing the game of lottery

              On paper that sounds nice. However I personally play Daily4 (P4), and it is a real bugger to hit that straight despite 1 in 10,000 odds.

              After taxes (which would have to be paid by me, it would cost too much to have an attorney create a partnership for only $100,000), we each would have about $7500. There are 11 of us. That amount of money is really not enough to do what we want or need.

              I have considered playing AoN for the pool, but right now that's on the back back burner.

                  Your thread reminds me of a situation l ran into a year or so ago P6.l met this guy in a motorized chair in line attempting to get his lottery tickets. We got into a conversation and his being there was hoping to win so that he could get a pair of lungs. Said that his were damaged & he was prepared to go to China if necessary. Hope your comrades get their wish. Thumbs Up

                    $50 - $1000 top prize is Pick 3, not Pick 4. It all depends on how much $$$ you wager, and what type of number [single/doubles/Pick 4 triple] you're wagering on. Small boxed wins, like $200/$400/$800/$1200, can be reinvested playing STRAIGHT, and you don't have to come fresh out of your pocket, every time you play.

                    Millionaires is not the point.

                    Thousandaires   is the point.

                    Probably the ideal size for a Pick 4 pool, is 3 - 4 people.

                          All depends on the original reason for the pool.

                          If the focus of the group was/is to win PB/MM, you are now asking its members to refocus with assisting a co-worker to be the prime concern.

                          Keeping the group together may be hard. And some may grudgingly agree, but giving up their dream is a decision they will come to resent.

                          Some will undoubtedly decide the risk is not worth the reward. Each person in the group has their own reason for participating, unless the group committed to winning for their co-worker.

                          How would you tell them, "Forget paying off your bills. Forget buying the dream home. Forget retirement. We're changing focus to help this person?"

                          Even if they don't say it, they see their hope dashed. Eventually, knowing there is nothing to dream about, and seeing the small wins returned to buy more numbers, they get a little slower with their contributions.

                          Its far too much to expect everyone to share your concerns and desires when it comes to matters involving their money.

                          Stay the course.

                          My greatest accomplishment is teaching cats about Vienna Sausage. When I need a friend, all I need do is walk outside, pop open a can, and every little critter in the neighborhood drops by to say "Hi!"

                            Exactly. We all have some kind of dream that can't be fulfilled on a P4 win. A lot of us have debt or bills to pay off. One person's dream is to buy a beach house near Galveston. I just want to get out of debt so I can retire while my health is still decent. I don't want to be running around a store when I'm 65 or God forbid 70.

                            I absolutely know the odds of us winning. But, to not try is to lose without even trying.

                            CAN'T WIN IF YOU'RE NOT IN

                            A DOLLAR AND A DREAM (OR $2)

                              Exactly. We all have some kind of dream that can't be fulfilled on a P4 win. A lot of us have debt or bills to pay off.
