Ways to stay anonymous:

1. Don't cash the ticket.  Instead, frame it with one of the numbers obscured, and hang it in your office. 
2. Give it to someone you can trust, like me to cash in.

I guess we should make a deadline and a time I will be buying the tickets. Everyone who wants to be part of the pool must pay by paypal or google wallet before the deadline, after which I will purchase the tickets and post pictures here.
I am assuming we are doing $2/each??  Let me know what you all want to do.

20 cents each. Buying more than 1=katnus emunah ;)
Anyway, there are 57 other lottery threads, dunno why you picked this one for a pool.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

I would advise against posting pictures here, rather send the pics to each person through a PM
I would do $4, please pm each name your PayPal or quick pay address.

Technically by making a pool or several tickets you are opening up more possibilities of winning amounts which could all very well be what He has in mind for each individual.   

Not sure though if you get a bad apple in the pool will it ruin it for the klal  :)

also the only thing I get when searching powerball is Dish washing detergent  lol  where are the other threads?

I don't get it, how does buying more than 1 ticket for the pool help you?
Mathematically your odds are still nil. And Gd doesn't need you to spend more money to make you win if he wants you to win.

Mathematically your odds are ten times better if you have ten tickets. 1/29M vs 1/290M.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Impossible to remain anonymous.

Everyone will know something is up. You'll be walking around with a big dumb smile, quiting your job etc.

If you're worried about shnorreres just pay someone to sit outside your house and dish out C notes to everyone everyday. Say 10k a day.
