I think that if she did purchase that ticket in a pool then the money should be split. If she purchased it separately with her own money then she shouldn't have to share if be required to share. I'm sure they will find out if it was purchased with a lot of tickets or individually by itself. What do you think?

who supposedly what one millions? I did not get if she won a lottery ticket or if she bought a bunch of tickets with friends.. why will she have to share if the ticket was hers to begin with... anyone who wins one million should not be sharing it with anyone who has no participation in gathering the ticket. hehe :D just my opinion i do not know what it meant by purchasing aticket in a pool.. i am not familiar with how it goes if it is meant to be shared then it should be shared...

Its where every one chips in money and then one person (that everyone trusts) will go and purchase however many lottery numbers that they have collected money for. If one of those numbers wins then the lottery is split amongst all those that contributed. I guess this woman did put into the pool but is saying that the ticket that won was one that she had purchased on her own and not with the group. Even if it was, I'd still share with them. I would not want them thinking of me like that. It wouldn't be worth it.

Yes I agree if it is meant to be shared then she should do that. Just like sid556 said I would much rather just share anyway out of the kindness of my heart. That lottery was said to have won her millions (sorry I had typed the word one instead of won in the topic title). She has more than enough to share. But some people are just so selfish all they care about is themselves. It's awful that people are like that.

If I won that kind of money, I would be sharing it with the group even if it was a ticket that I bought on my own. I imagine they were all on friendly terms when the tickets were purchased. I haven't heard the story but it sounds like she cared more about money than she did her friendships. That's pretty sad. Karma...it'll get her.

I agree I would share as well. It's unfortunate that she is being the way that she is. But money does change people. It causes a lot of people to be selfish and only think about themselves. She definitely cares more about money than her friends. If she really viewed them as friends she would be sharing with them.

And this is why you really shouldn't go into a group when buying some kind of ticket. Because something like this is just bound to happen, where one person attempts to take all of the money and run. Is it a sleazy thing to do? You better believe that it is. But should you really expect something like this happening? Then yes. Of course, money is a funny thing as it causes people to lose temporary leave of their senses. To the point where they cannot really be honest to anyone. Still I would never really go into a group to purchase something for a drawing. Of course, I wouldn't buy a ticket to any money drawing to begin with, but that is rather beside the point.

I agree that this wasn't a good idea for them to do. And it is very sad that the woman is choosing to act this way. Money definitely causes people to act differently. Yeah I don't buy tickets or things like that either. If a person is going to do something like that especially for millions of dollars they should think about these types of things ahead of time. It gets them no where being naive about the situation and thinking that a person who share all that money. In cases like that unfortunately you have to assume the worst in order to be safe.

Well I hadn't heard it, but I think if it was purchased as a pool then she needs to split it, if it wasn't then she can keep it and tell all the others to shove it. Jealousy or Greed, I guess we'll find out soon enough which one it was.

I agree with you completely. They will be able to find out how it was purchased. Because I'm sure that everyone who was involved in the pool will want to know. It's sad though that if she knows she purchased that as a pool that she would try to take it all. Greed is so awful.

Sometimes people change overnight when money involve. I just hope she will get what she deserves. If she deserve the whole then hope she gets whole amount but if she has to split hope she plays fair and split it with whoever involves.

I agree with you. Money changes a lot of people. It is sad that that is the case. That is the same thing that I hope for. If she bought that ticket separate it will show it and then she will be able to have the money all to herself. If that ticket was part of a pool she should definitely have to split it it's the right thing to do.
