    I’m very interested.  Do you know if a subscription for a group is available?  I’m in a pool of players and would like our pool to subscribe.   A subscription for an individual won’t work for us.

    Compared to New York’s Take5, Mass Cash is twice as easy to win and players win twice as much if they hit a jackpot.  G5

      There's something else about Mass Cash the above post does not mention, and that's the fact that it's not parimutuel.  If you bought two tickets with the same set of five numbers and those five numbers won a jackpot, then you'd win $200,000. 

      Last Monday (July 9th) in West Bridgewater Mass, there were 10 winning tickets sold, four of them in the same store.  It's possible that all ten tickets were purchased at different stores by the same person. If that's the case, then that player won $1,000,000 before taxes.

      One player buying multiple Mass Cash tickets with the same set of five numbers is fairly common in Mass. One player winning a jackpot with 3, 4 or 5 tickets is something that happens from time to time according to a Mass Lottery spokesperson.  In January of 2016, a Massachusetts woman won one million (pre-tax) by purchasing multiple Mass Cash tickets.   G5

        I'm not sure about a group play. I would think everyone should just get their own tickets. After paying taxes on a possible $100,000 hit and splitting it 4, 5, 6 or 8 ways ... what's left to get 'excited' about?

        It seems to me that 'your just playing for fun money' and nothing serious. Let everyone 'go for it' with their own ticket ... if they can't swing the money, then maybe they shouldn't be playing the lottery, except for a little fun.

        Sort of like going to a casino ... some people play to win and some just play a few penny machines.

        I look at it like this ... not interested in any 'group play' ... most people will never hit a substantial lottery jackpot in their life and if they do get lucky with a decent hit, there's a very good chance that will be the only lottery jackpot they may ever hit. Why share a $100,000 jackpot with eight people when you don't have too?

        You are correct ... if you have four tickets with the same numbers ... you win $400,000. In Jan 2016 a woman had 10 tickets and won a million dollars the 'easy way' ... with those odds of 324,632 to 1.

        Of course, I joke a little saying the 'easy way' ... nothing is easy with the lottery, although some people do make it look 'easy' with 3, 4 or 6 lottery wins over several years or months.

        "ABINGTON - While the $800 million Powerball jackpot has captured headlines and drawn the attention of residents around the state, a Whitman woman recently struck it big on Mass Cash, winning $1 million.

        After purchasing multiple tickets at Central Avenue Sunoco in Abington on Jan. 3, Roberta Ibbitson hit the $100,000 jackpot 10 times, making her a millionaire, before taxes.

        Ibbitson beat the 1-in-324,632 odds when she picked the daily game’s winning numbers for the drawing - 03-08-15-23-33. Her and her husband, Randall Ibbitson, picked up their prize the following day on Jan. 4."

        There are many people hitting with 3, 4 and 5 tickets at times ... a few examples:

        4/11/2018 $100,000 Francis Breen Roslindale MA Cavan Cafe Hyde Park
        4/11/2018 $100,000 Francis Breen Roslindale MA Cavan Cafe Hyde Park
        4/11/2018 $100,000 Francis Breen Roslindale MA Cavan Cafe Hyde Park
        4/11/2018 $100,000 Francis Breen Roslindale MA Cavan Cafe Hyde Park
        4/11/2018 $100,000 Francis Breen Roslindale MA Cavan Cafe Hyde Park

        5/5/2018 $100,000 Gerard Stringer Pittsfield MA Stop & Shop #021 Pittsfield
        5/5/2018 $100,000 Gerard Stringer Pittsfield MA Stop & Shop #021 Pittsfield
        5/5/2018 $100,000 Gerard Stringer Pittsfield MA Stop & Shop #021 Pittsfield

        5/23/2018 $100,000 John Harrington Lowell MA Rite Aid 10120 Lowell
        5/23/2018 $100,000 John Harrington Lowell MA Rite Aid 10120 Lowell

        ... Just let everyone get their own ticket and 'may the best person' win !!!

        Of course. if your 'out of state' then the season ticket plan only works for people who like to play the same numbers for a period of time ... not for someone who has to change numbers everyday.

          Thanks for the reply.

          The pool I’m in is limited to 8 players and we each throw in $60 so the potential to play a single set of numbers many times over is there.  We’re in eastern NY near the Mass border (about an hours drive) so the thought of a group subscription appeals to us. But all 8 of us want The Mass Lottery to withhold taxes and divide the remainder amongst us.  All 8 are willing to provide the Mass Lottery with SSN’s because it’s a subscription. G5

            It just seems to me you are making the whole lottery ticket thing complicated ... various SSNs, taxes and final prize checks.

            There could be two ways to go ... as I said earlier, everybody just gets their own ticket ... very simple ... or if you must do a 'group play', then everyone still gets their own ticket but you all play the same numbers, if you hit one day then everyone gets their own $100,000 check and they pay their own taxes and such.

            Keep it simple and easy ... no ex-spouses, child support or bill collectors messing everybody up and you never get your money with the 'group players' tied up in court over one person's problems. Stay away from group play, also 'so called' friends and relatives ... go it alone when playing the lottery.

            That's my thoughts on the subject ... but whatever works in your area.

              I am just posting this since it just happened Monday night ... July 9th, there were a total of ten winning tickets and one person had nine of those winning tickets.

              Massachusetts man wins $900,000 by hitting lottery grand prize 9 times in same drawing

              BRAINTREE - A funny feeling compelled Brockton carpenter Robert Lundstedt to purchase nine lottery tickets for Monday night's Mass Cash drawing, playing the same numbers on each. After buying the tickets, he gave one to his son Brian and another to his daughter Kristen. The next morning he bought a newspaper at his local supermarket to check the drawing's results, only to find that he had won.

              With each ticket jackpot standing at $100,000, Lundstedt's total winnings before tax comes in at $900,000. The winning combination of numbers that Lundstedt used on each ticket were 1-7-11-26-30.

              Lundstedt had used the numbers--what he described as his "usual combination"-- before but they paid out this week, said Christian Teja, Communications Director for the state lottery.

                With regard to those of us in my pool, you're presupposing a few things that may or may not happen. 

                I do agree that getting tied up in court is one thing that could happen, but I still don't know if The Mass Lottery can even handle or will allow a group subscription.  If they don't, then the pool wont be playing Mass Cash.  If The Mass Lottery does allow it, should they cut checks very soon after a big win, any court battles that ensue would be the problem of the individual member of the pool with personal problems.

                Needless to say our pool has to have all five winning numbers, and while the odds of that happening are lower with Mass Cash, it's still a pretty healthy long shot. G5

                  Found out today when I visited a Massachusetts Lottery retailer that players can purchase a group season ticket.  All Season Tickets must be registered.  That can be done either on The Mass Lottery's website by the purchaser or the player can mail The Mass Lottery the registration form that prints out of the terminal at the retailers location along with the Season Ticket.  (Players pay the retailer in cash for the season ticket, the retailer prints the ticket and the registration form and gives it to the person who bought the Season Ticket.) 

                  If you register your Season Ticket online via the website, there's a box that can be checked that indicates it's a group season ticket. Only one member of the group will actually "own" the ticket but all of the other members of the group will have their names and address added to the ticket so as to identify them to The Mass Lottery.

                  Seems like it's pretty low risk for a pool or group players in terms of a big winning season ticket to get tied up in court.  I suppose it could happen, but if a jackpot winning Season Ticket was claimed a day or so after the drawing, everybody in the group would have their share of the jackpot sitting in their bank accounts before anybody who wanted to go after a group member in court became aware of the fact that the group had won big.

                        There is a lot of misinformation (particularly in the Lottery News thread about the recent Mass Cash winner of $900,000) regarding purchasing Mass Cash Season Tickets. I'll try to clear the air in this post.

                        There are two sources of a Mass Cash Season Ticket. (which are now selling at a reduced price until August 4th)

                        They are;

                        At a Lottery Retailer with cash or players may buy them directly from The Massachusetts Lottery.  If you buy them directly from The Mass Lottery, you can do it in one of two ways.  Over the phone using any credit card except American Express, or you may mail The Mass Lottery a personal check. Players can be located anywhere in The U.S.A and buy a Mass Cash Season Ticket from The Mass Lottery.  Other than a player must be at least 18 years of age, there are no restrictions of any kind regarding purchasing a Season Ticket. 

                        Once you buy a Season Ticket, it must be registered.  Players that bought their Season Ticket at a retailer with cash are given a form by the retailer along with the Season Ticket. You can mail that form to The Mass Lottery, or you may use The Mass Lottery's website and register it yourself.  If you buy directly from The Mass Lottery, they will register it.  G5

                            Yes and at a reduced cost than if you bought a ticket every day from a retailer. (But from now until August 4th, they are even cheaper than if you bought a Season Ticket at their regular reduced cost.) G5

                              Just to show players how acutely aware Players in Massachusetts are about playing Mass Cash with the same line of five numbers multiple times, in 2016 nine people hit a jackpot with either multiple tickets sold at the same store, or by playing the same line of five numbers more than once on one ticket. 

                              In 2017 it happened nine times.  So far in 2018, it's happened five times. (Interesting that we're halfway through 2018 and halfway to it happening ten times this year.)

                              I wouldn't bet against it happening nine or ten times again in 2018.  G5
