What are the lottery pools?

Lottery pools allow you to have better odds of winning a lottery.  You do not have to pay more money to buy tickets. Many people gather to buy lottery tickets. Everyone agrees on dividing the winnings if any of the tickets they buy, win.

Working of the lottery pools

You should know how the lotteries work. Let us discuss a simple example. If an office lottery pool has 50 members, and each member pays a dollar in the lottery pool. The lottery pool manager will buy 50 lottery tickets as $1 for one ticket. The manager keeps them carefully waiting for the withdrawal of the lottery.

If the lottery pool wins luckily, it will earn a $50 million lottery jackpot. Every player who has contributed will get one million dollars. A lottery pool maximizes the chances of winning.  The players have 50 times more the chances of winning the lottery and will get 1/50h of the total winnings.

Lottery pools are sometimes more complex. Some players can contribute more money to have more shares of the lottery. If someone pays $5 instead of $1, the lottery manager will have to buy 55 tickets instead of 50. The person who has contributed more money will get more shares in the winnings. If one player contributes $5 instead of $1, he will get 5/55th of the jackpot.
