What Happens When You Win

When your pool wins, theLotter Oregon will notify you of the win and will ensure that you receive your prize. Each participant in the pool owns a share in the winnings proportionate to how much money he or she contributed to the pool.

Pool Terms Explained

Lines – The lines are the different number combinations that are bought for a pool. As an example, a 100-line pool has 100 unique number combinations (also known as blocks or tickets), giving participants in a pool 100 chances of winning the jackpot. These lines are bought by the pool for the upcoming draw.

Total Shares – Each pool is divided into equal parts, made available for purchase. These parts, also known as Shares, determine the portion of the pool’s prizes that you stand to win. For example, if a pool has 50 total shares, each share will give you 2% of the pool’s prizes (100% divided into 50 equal pieces). The more shares you buy, the larger your portion of the prize will be.

What are the different types of pools available?

Random Selection Numbers are chosen at random for a fixed number of lines.

Systematic Covers all probable unique combinations out of a given set of 7-14 numbers. These numbers are chosen at random.

Additional Numbers Match Guaranteed The lines contain every possible combination of the lottery’s additional number(s). This guarantees that the pool will match the additional number(s) at least once. All other numbers are selected randomly.

Guaranteed Number Match Each line in the pool contains one changing number. This dynamic number spans the entire guess range of the lottery. Because of this, the pool will match at least one of the numbers drawn – guaranteed! All other numbers are chosen at random.

Most Frequently Asked Questions About Buying Lottery Tickets Online


How are the numbers of a pool chosen? Can I pick my own numbers?


Pool numbers are randomly preselected when the pool is created by theLotter Oregon. When you join a pool, you are not able to choose or change the pool’s numbers. You can view the participating numbers in advance when deciding which pool to join.


How are pool wins divided?


When a pool wins, the winnings are divided equally between the number of total shares. Your percentage of the prize depends on the number of shares you bought in that pool.


What happens if not all pool shares are purchased


Your portion of the pool, your winning odds and your percentage of the prizes are independent of the number of shares sold in the pool, and will remain unchanged. The pool will purchase all participating lines, regardless of how many shares are actually sold, at no extra cost to you.
