Pool for Mega Millions???

With it being at $480-500 million by Friday would anyone be interested in doing a pool? Say $5-10 each?

I am not nominating myself to hold the money rather someone who we all could trust to transfer the money to and post the tickets.

Re: Pool for Mega Millions???

Holy ****, it rolled over again?

Well, I hope I got 5 of 5 white for this draw...lol

47 people got 5 of 5 white, odds of that without hitting the jackpot is still 35.6%. Surprising...I was figuring 70 or so would hit 5 of 5.

I'm willing to contribute, but live in Nevada so I can't buy them.

Re: Pool for Mega Millions???

I live in Ohio where we do have it. If someone else has it in their state let me know. If not I could pool if needed. I can work out the details tonight. Money in by Friday 10 am EST.

Mods, could use some help on this one please.

Re: Pool for Mega Millions???

I can paypal $5 to $10.

I didn't get 5 of 5 last night. But got the 3 lowest numbers and was a total of 3 digits off for all 5 white numbers...

The $7 I earned for this will obviously be regambled for personal use.

Re: Pool for Mega Millions???

It sounds like I need to set up a pay pal account do I will work on that tonight. Also what will the ground rules be? Do I email a pic of all the tickets? Do we all agree to keep this private if we win? Do I post the name of the people who are in?

How about when someone sends you money, they tell you if they want you to keep their names private. Yes. Please set up an account on PayPal and pictures of the tickets would be nice. Also, not to sound distrusting, but can anyone vouch for you Diana?

I'm down with it. I live in California , so I can either send money or buy tickets and post them.

Any amount up to $20 is good for me

I have traded with plainestman several times if that helps. I think $5 per person sounds about right. I just created a pay pal account. How would I post the pictures of the tickets? Email?

Re: Pool for Mega Millions???

If you upload pictures onto your computer, you can host them from an imaging site like Photobucket and post the pics right here in the thread.

I don't see how I can possibly act as treasurer as I'm not the one buying the tickets.

My guess is Shauna knows we would all trust you, obv, and also was hoping you'd bother with the collection effort. I would do it if I didn't have plans on Friday. I wasted part of the afternoon in the Probability section over this:

Re: Pool for Mega Millions???

No concern if we upload pics here someone can claim they were a part of it? I figured email would be safer.

Well, isn't everyone going to pay you by paypal? That would be record enough I'd think. I made my first paypal transfer in over 6 years earlier this year; the 6+ year-old transactions were still listed on my account.

I don't know much about the Lotto, but if you try to claim the prize, don't you actually have to present the ticket?

Someone knowing the numbers from an online pic wouldn't mean squat.

And nobody can claim they are part of the pool if they don't send the money in advance.

But email is fine as well.
