    I joined a clerk customer pool from circle k and it goes like this.  If I win powerball the clerk gets a cool million and if the clerk wins powerball I get a cool million.  We shook on it so it is official and we are both old so I don't think rick is the type of guy to mess me over.-weshar75

      I would go for drawing up a contract and then a handshake Weshar75. But then again,  that's just me. Big Smile Money changes people and their attitudes,  but to each his own as they say. You can never be too careful. Lurking

        I agree.  A contract needs to be drawn up prior to starting a lottery pool.   The tickets also need to be photocopied (each participant should have a copy) and tickets placed in a safe place, hopefully a safe.   Personally, I would never join a lottery pool, but then, that's just me.

          I Agree! and let's hope that the person holding the original ticket doesn't lose it. Bang Head

            If you were making a real $1 million bet instead of an imaginary one would you bet he's not that type of guy?

              I Agree! It for you on protection to get in writing. Get a simply contract. The
              Then you have proof when the win happen. He got a copy & you get a 
              copy. It'll stand up in court. This person could be family, I want a contract.

                Darn straight- couple of years ago,  this lowlife son attempted to screw his own mother over out in Fresno or somewhere in the valley. She bought the ticket, shows up at the lottery office,  her hand" according to her" was shaking so badly that she told her son to sign the ticket,next thing you know,  she needs to come to him with hat in hand to get "some " money. She finally ponied up a lawyer to sue his A***.That broke his attitude. .finally!

                 It's a true story: It's archived here on lottery post.

                      They don't offer pools yet for Eurojackpot, only regular Lotto, so I don't play yet. But many other games like Keno is available with pools. However they changed the way pools are created last year. It's complicated, so I really cant ezplain it correctly here in english. Finland have better pools, here you buy shares in syndicate, much like ozlotteries in Australia.

                        California family's fight over $51 million lottery. Mega Millions. March 28, 2013

                         Etta May Urquhart is the Mother. 

                         Her husband was not smiling when they were at the Fresno Lottery District Office. I think he knew his son better than Etta May did.

                          Music- l recall when this piece broke,  there were some members who felt that the mother was attempting to strong arm the son, but it would seem it was the other way round. I mean the mother was in her 70's . She got a lawyer because her offspring was up to no good. I tell you : if you going to get shady family involved in lottery money you won, draw up a contract or move abroad.Dont include a forwarding address either because evil intentions will follow you. do have choices.

                             Some more good reasons why you need to keep it as secret as possible. Money is one of the most private things in your life. Your financial planner will know more about you than your family does. 

                             Noise-gate, You still have plenty of choices when you win. Have you changed plans lately?

                              I would love to be invited to join a pool playing the Powerball. It would be the neighborly thing to do. Please please!
