With the Mega Millions standing at a very tempting $77.000.000 it’s no wonder everyone is talking about it. Whether you hear about it via our website, reminder mailers, social media (where you could enjoy a giggle with fellow lottery enthusiasts and stand a chance to winning a few FREE vouchers) or via the internet, not having a few entries into this draw is simply not an option. After all, how will you make those dreams of immense wealth your reality?
If however, you can’t afford to constantly buy a lottery ticket into each and every draw, then you could always start an office lottery pool. This way you could all club together and enjoy the excitement that comes with a huge lottery jackpot, together.
While playing in an office lottery pool can be fun and exciting for a group of co-workers, the feelings of camaraderie and excitement could turn if you don’t have all your ducks in a row.
The most common disputes? Someone will claim that they personally purchased the winning ticket and that it was not part of the office pool or someone who has played in the past didn’t the week of the win but feels they should have still been included. When there is a dispute, the money can be tied up for months or years while the issues get resolved.
The good news is that if you win the lottery in an office pool, it doesn’t have to end like this. Here are five simple steps you can take with your office lottery pool to avoid most of these issues:
5 Rules If You Play In An Office Pool
Name a leader
First and foremost, you need to name a leader. This individual will be in charge of the lottery pool and responsible for buying the lottery tickets online.
Create a contract
Create a contract that clearly spells out the big issues eg. Who is in pool, how often you play, how much each person is spending, whether you will be taking the lump-sum or the annuity option, if you are purchasing quick-picks or whether someone will be selecting the numbers on behalf of the group. All participants then sign this agreement.
Use your LottoPoints and special offers
Opt in to receive our reminder mailers. These up to the minute informational mailers will inform you of the latest and greatest lottery jackpot. Not only are they a fantastic reminder to play but you will additionally be informed of any special offers available.
Email your transaction confirmation to each other
Once you have entered you’re lucky lottery numbers, you will be sent a confirmation email. Forward this email to your pool members – so that they too know what the group’s selected entries are.
If you have ever thought, "I'd be happy if I could just win a fraction of that amount?" Then playing in a lottery pool might just be for you.
Then again, if you want the whole $77.000.000 Mega Millions jackpot for yourself, we suggest hitting the play button now and this time tomorrow you could be a whole lot richer!
