Record Powerball Jackpot Spurs Warnings About Office Pools

KSAL StaffJanuary 12, 2016

This week’s record $1.5 billion Powerball jackpot is drawing a lot of new players, and many are buying in with co-workers.

But legal experts say buying tickets through an office pool can open the door to a lot of unhappiness, especially for winners.

Some previous winners have found themselves fighting over the money, rather than enjoying it. That’s why lawyers say it’s important to appoint a leader who’s in charge of the pool and responsible for buying the tickets.

They say the most important thing is to have a contract that spells out details including who’s playing and how you’ll take your winnings if you hit the jackpot. Everyone should sign the contract. Sample contracts are available online.
