Syndicates

What is a syndicate?

A syndicate is a great way to increase your chances of winning without spending a huge amount of money. When you enter into a syndicate, you buy a share, and all other syndicate players do the same. All the money is combined to purchase large quantities of lottery tickets, increasing your chances of winning.

The number of shares in a syndicate is fixed at the outset and the more shares set and available for sale, the cheaper each share will be. The lotteries to be purchased and number of games will also be set and advertised at the outset.

You can buy as many shares as you like. The more shares you have, the more money you’ll collect if you win!

What are the benefits of a syndicate?

Joining forces with other players allows you to increase your chances of winning a jackpot.

Get more tickets for a fraction of the cost and share the fun with like-minded lotto-lovers.

You won’t have potential arguments as to who paid to be in the syndicate and difficulties collecting money from the ticket holder like you can possibly get with “office syndicates”. Every syndicate member gets paid their full entitlement by us after a winning draw.

What will happen if not all the shares of a syndicate are purchased?

Regardless of the number of shares sold in a syndicate, the shares you purchase will remain unaffected. Any unsold shares will be purchased by The Lottery Office at no extra cost to the existing syndicate members.

Am I limited to just one syndicate at a time?

You are able to purchase as many shares in as many syndicates as you wish. And don’t worry about keeping track of syndicates, draws and outcomes. We look after all that. We will notify you of the results of all your syndicate draws and pay your winnings entitlements into your account.

Please note: Spending limits apply for verified and unverified accounts. Please refer to our terms and conditions.

How are the winnings divided and paid to all members of a syndicate?

Winnings will be divided equally between the number of total shares in a syndicate. The prize you receive we will pay you will be dependent on the number of shares you bought. The more shares you have, the more money you collect in the event of a win.
