POWERBALL / MEGA MILLIONS LOTTERY POOL FAQs

 


========>For How to JOIN POOL , Go to Question # 6 <============

 

 

1.  When do you play which game (Powerball vs. Mega Millions)?

We don't play EITHER game unless the jackpot is AT LEAST $300 million (for P/B) or $200 million (for MM). 
 

2.  How many members do you presently have and how many chances does the pool take each drawing?

As of May, 2016, we have 20 members, and each player purchases one (1) ticket per drawing, and each ticket is power-played (or Megaplied), so each ticket costs $3 ($2). 

3.  Does the pool take quick picks (QPs) or hand-picked #s?

Quick picks.    
    
4.  How are pool winnings distributed?

On the master listing of tickets (see Question 5 Link C below), a player's name is located out to the right of EACH individual ticket.  Once the powerball (mega millions) numbers are pulled on drawing nights, I immediately enter the winning #s on the master spreadsheet.  Winnings are allocated as follow:  :

Only prizes of $50,000 ($5,000-MM) and up are shared, and they're shared equally by all players.  Prizes below $50,000 ($5,000-MM) go to the player whose name is to the right of the winning ticket (See Question 5, Link E below). 

 

5.  How are results communicated to players?

Via email either around 11:15 p.m. drawing night (if nationwide results available by then) or around noon the next day (if nationwide results not known by 11:15 p.m. drawing night).  Here's a copy & paste of the PRE-drawing email:
