 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?

You're absolutely right about that in your comment.

    Image result for see a bunch of losers..like Money over the years. So why not join a Pool right now for this particular jackpot- good idea, bad idea- what?

    Have a great rest of the week people and above all else : Stay Healthy.Smile

    I actually did a lottery pool with co workers.  When the jackpot was at that $1.6 billion.   I also played my own numbers on my own terms the same lottery.   Of course if you get photo copied you can take a pic of all the tickets on your smart phone android devices too. 

     

    Get a contract drawn up with whom ever and agree not to post anything on social media nothing leaked out.  As long as its in writing.  Three words that I mention is this.  I KNOW NOTHING.   If there are winners I don't know the people.   See what winnings everyone gets and move on.  If everyone follows me on that.

        Yes, I agree. I was hoping for an invitation to join a pool. I am surprised there are no pools organized on this site.

          A pool on a website sounds very complicated and hazardous.  I would recommend starting a pool with people you know personally.

            After the experiences I have had, and seen myself.
            I'm not recommending to anyone to start/join a
            lottery pool.

            it can be good if you think you can trust and get along
            with the people in the pool. if you can count on them.
            if not, don't bother.

            SME Lottery Pools.
            ran/played in 10 of them!

              As I have stated before, I run the lottery pool at work.

              I keep the envelope in my desk.  When someone want to put money in, they write the amount and their name.

              I send out an email before each draw letting everyone know when the next draw is and when I will be getting the tickets. 

              If you want in, you come find me.  I do not track people down. 

              It's $2 a drawing.  Any winnings are put back in the pool for the next drawing unless there is enough that everyone gets at least their initial $2 back.  We hit for $100 once and I think everyone got like $6 and some change. 

              When I buy the tickets, I scan them into PDF and email them out to everyone before the drawing. 

              Never had any issues and we've been doing it for just over 3 years.
