With the Powerball Jackpot at $600 million, everyone has their eye set on the lottery.

Office Lottery pools can increase your chances of winning according to a lottery expert. But sometimes those group winning lottery tickets can create more controversy than celebration.

Lottery Guru and author of several lottery books, Don McNay said a lot of co-workers don’t think they’re going to win because the odds are so high.

Without advanced planning, once they do strike gold – they’re in trouble.

“A bunch of hairdressers sent the woman to buy the ticket and she claims she bought that one separately and the one that really won the lottery really wasn't part of the pool,” McNay said.

Stories like this are happening across the country.

McNay said to avoid these situations, when going in with other people for a lottery ticket, it’s crucial to write down who’s in the pool and how the money will be divided.

He also recommends to the people who do win the lottery that they stay anonymous or as private about their winnings as possible.
