The communal aspect of a lottery pool may be appealing - Aquarius excels at bringing people together around their projects.
This sign likes being at the top of the heap, but they prefer to see the big picture rather than concerning themselves with details. They tend to be big spenders, so they'll need to be careful about where their money goes. They should use their intellectual and self-sufficient side to help them to balance impulsivity.

And of course Pisces would help out family and friends with their windfall - loved ones are likely to be the first things Pisces thinks about when they hear they've had a life-changing win.
