USS Rankin Lottery Pool #28
July 1, 2014 - September 30, 2014
This is the website for a lottery pool with about a hundred participants. Roughly half of us served aboard the USS Rankin (AKA-103), an attack cargo ship in commission from 1945 to 1971. Most of the others learned about us on the Internet.
We have a lot of fun playing the multistate Powerball and Mega Millions lotteries, and of course we hope to hit the Jackpot one day. We are encouraged by the fact that we've won money in over 1,000 consecutive drawings since 2007.
We operate honestly and openly, and every dollar contributed to the pool is used to buy lottery tickets. You can get more information by following the links at the top of this page.
The pool is run by Louis "Skip" Sander, who served on the Rankin in 1961-1963. It is run for the benefit of the participants, and is not an activity of The USS Rankin Association. We just piggyback on their website and email.

* Jackpot figures are estimates from lottery officials. Mega Millions annuities are paid out over 25 years, Powerball annuities over 30. Cash values are paid out immediately. Jackpots actually won are shown in gold.
** We need to sell 121 shares to buy a full complement of tickets without dipping into our reserves. If we don't have that many by the start of Week 3, we actively solicit additional players. "Cash Value of 1 Share After Taxes" is the estimated after tax winnings of each share if we take our winnings in cash, which almost all winners do. Taxes are estimated at 35%.
***  The amounts shown here are believed to be accurate, but are for informational purposes only. Actual winnings will be known when tickets are redeemed at the end of the pool, and will be reported to participants at that time.
