Thousands Travel to Arizona for Chance at Powerball Millions

Posted: Updated:

WHITE HILLS, Ariz. - Thousands of Nevada residents will be traveling to Arizona to play the record $500 million Powerball lottery. The drawing takes place Wednesday night. If you are part of an office pool, you will want to take steps to avoid potential lawsuits.

Usually, legal conflicts never come to pass, because the odds of winning are one-in-175 million. In years past, however, lawsuits have resulted when an office lottery pool produced a winner.

To avoid litigation, first choose someone who is trustworthy to lead your group. Make sure that person is organized and honest.

Know the ground rules before the drawing. Make sure everyone contributes an equal amount of money. Determine beforehand if the group will take the cash payout option.

Additionally, decide whether the group will pay the extra dollar for the Powerplay feature. Make sure the group leader keeps track of all the participants who paid. Everyone should pay ahead of time.

Finally, everyone in the group needs copies of all the tickets before the drawing.

The Powerball drawing takes place at 8 p.m. Pacific Time.
