If we win, we split the pot and maybe get enough to buy a new yacht and a Lear jet.

Obviously, I haven't done the proper math, but you get the idea.
Is this idea legal? Do we need an attorney first?

Exclamation not in all states

This sounds like internet gambling or gambling over the internet. In either case lottery tickets are not sold in every state and this is crossing state lines to commit gambling. If the HomeLand Security starts looking for who to arrest and jail for this type of active they would obviously take the moderators first, then they would come for the members who are posting, and they would come for me because I’d have all the money from those buying lottery tickets and not give it back to them.

Ok I only play when I have a spare dollar in my pocket, but always wonder if there is better way to increase my odds.

I always wonder if the winning numbers if they ever been duplicated in previous lottery drawings? If so is it documented?

Is there a database that tracks winning numbers?

Do you have better odds letting machine pick or you selecting your own numbers?

I want to increase my odds of winning but I think if I use previous winning numbers my odds would be better.

Everything has a certain system and I think it time for us to crack the code.
Yes, all of this info is tracked and available.
