30.)Why am I receiving duplicate Email Alerts?

If you think you are receiving duplicate email alerts, check to make sure that the Pool ID# is the same. The Pool ID# is located near the center of the email alert in the blue box when it lists the time and date of the drawing as well as the Jackpot and payout amount. For example: Pool ID# 1735.
Since we open up to 30 pools per month, you may think you're receiving duplicates, but you're not. Also remember that we send out Pool Closing Reminder Alerts to those members who have Not registered into a particular pool.
If you have two exact email alerts with the same Pool ID#, contact [email protected] Make sure to forward Both of the duplicate emails.

31.)Why Do You Ask For My Full Name?

The reason why we require your full name is so that the game is fair to all members who play by the rules. It also allows us to identify and remove those members who sign up and play under multiple accounts.

Our primary rule is that your profile must match exactly that which appears on your official ID. The reason why we require this information will be critical in the event of a winning jackpot.

Here is why:

In the event of a winning jackpot, the website will be locked down and no one will be able to login and modify or edit their profile information.

At that time, we will contract with a US licensed and recognized Certified Public Accounting Firm who will conduct a full audit of the winning pool. The Accounting Firm will issue claim forms and require a copy of your official identification. During that audit, anyone who has an incomplete, erroneous or duplicate profile will be automatically disqualified from any share in the winnings.

Additionally, anyone who is suspected of playing for another member, or who has signed up for another member will also be automatically disqualified.

Please note:(All member information is kept strictly confidential. We do not share or distribute our members information). If you have any questions email us: [email protected]

32.)How are the lottery ticket numbers selected? Do you have a number selection strategy?

Generally, all Powerball, Megamillions and SuperLotto ticket numbers have been picked at random. We feel that the best strategy is to play the same numbers in pool after pool unless one or more of the ticket lines matches 3 or more of the official drawing numbers. Whenever that happens, we will typically change out the line with a new set of randomly chosen numbers.

For Bonus Pools, we generally play a set of 10 "Quick Picks" which are randomly selected by the lottery terminal at the time of purchase.
