Lottery Pools: How to Join Powerball and Mega Millions Pools on Jackpocket

There are two ways to participate in lottery pools on Jackpocket

Want better odds? Of course you do. That’s why we created Jackpocket Pools, the way to team up in lottery pools for more chances to win Mega Millions and Powerball prizes. There are two ways to participate, Public Pools and Private Pools, in supported states. But first...

What’s a lottery pool?

Lottery pools are a way to join lottery forces with others for better odds. Members of the pool each contribute lottery tickets into a shared pot and agree to split the prize winnings if any of the tickets is a winner.

Can you play in a lottery pool with an app?

Join Mega Millions and Powerball lottery pools on the Jackpocket app! We have multiple ways you can participate with thousands of other players in your state: Public Pools and Private Pools. While equally awesome, Public and Private Pools are different experiences. You can beat the odds with other Jackpocket users in your state in Public Pools. Or you can join forces with just your friends, family, and colleagues in your state with Private Pools.

Beat the Odds in Public Pools

Why it’s awesome:

  • Participate in the lottery with thousands of Jackpocket users in your state—friends and strangers, alike.
  • There’s a Powerball Pool and a Mega Millions Pool.
  • To join a pool drawing, users add 1 ticket each.
  • The winnings are always split evenly.

Keep It Invite-Only with Private Pools

Why it’s awesome:

  • Participate in the lottery with people you know IRL.
  • Own a private lottery group and invite whoever—friends, family, and coworkers—in your state.
  • Members of the lottery group can add as many ticket entries as they want.
  • The more entries you add, the bigger your personal payout.💰

Public vs Private Lottery Pools?

No matter how you pool, Jackpocket does all the work for you. The app keeps track of who contributes what, splits the winnings accordingly, and sends your share of the prize directly to your Jackpocket account. 

Luckily, you don’t have to choose! Join both in the Pools section of the Jackpocket app.
