    Would you join an online Lottery Pool if you were convinced it was legitimate and the lottery pool did not charge any fees. That is, all money collected was used to buy tickets and all wins were dispersed evenly.

    Also interested in learning of your reasons for and against.

    Thanks.

    I posted about a lottery pool deal in this forum last week. It was expired by a moderator after a couple of hours claiming there was no interest. I posted the poll in the same forum to gage if there is in fact interest.

    The deal is available again this week but decided to go with the poll first.

    Good luck.

    Do you work for a marketing company? If I know what is for, I'd answer honestly
    Apply every possible promo code to your cart, at every store that you visit (and get points for cash back on top of that?). It's sweet and easy with HONEY.

    No, I do not work for a marketing company. It is not a special lottery. Just the normal ones run by Canadian lottery corporations like Ontario Lottery and Gaming and BC Lottery, etc.

    The contribution I am trying to make is to inform people of the $5 billion they spend on lotteries every year, there are good deals and not so good deals. There are not too many products in Canada that generate sales of over $5 billion per year.

    Good luck.

    really trying to do b/g info on this and the more i see the fisher it seems.... posted in another forum(cant post as they are a comp. site) i found the op say


    "The following is the current status of the five groups buying tickets for the January 2 Lotto 649 $36 million jackpot draw.

    Group A1 is buying 175 tickets. There are 35 shares in the group and 37 shares still available. The cost is $10 per share."



    i understand this as there are (35+37) 72 shares @ cost of $10 a share = $720

    Now the cost of 175 tickets for 6/49 @ $2 a ticket =$350

    now for the math $720-$350= $370

    So it seems that someone is profiting nicely from this no matter if the lottery is being won or not, thus the reason for promoting this. Reminder this is calculations for 1 group. Op mentions there are 10? $370x 10 = $3700 (thats a nice income)

    correct me if i am wrong

Mario38, you're picking up the $10 per person to courier this stuff out? You are going to be out of pocket for quite a bit! How do you expect to cover these costs? I mean, really.

    Without the copy of the ticket and group play form, players have 0% consumer protection.

    I would like to point out to people if someone is collecting on the ticket IN TRUST for you and others, you should probably know and trust them. Know their name, where they live, and enough info for you or the cops to be able to track them down if something goes wrong.

    There are enough stories in the papers about group play gone wrong - and this among friends and coworkers. Why get screwed by a total stranger?
    I seriously couldn't like this statement enough LOL

    You are 100% wrong in your calculations and assumptions. All ticket transactions are clearly documented on the website for anyone to review and verify.
