US Mega Millions syndicate winners

  • After a spur of the moment decision, 11 co-workers from a Californian finance company became instant millionaires! In July 2018 the syndicate won a US Mega Millions jackpot totalling approximately AUD$760 million.
  • Three work colleagues from the Maryland public education system shared in a US Mega Million’s jackpot that changed their lives forever. One of the three fell asleep before the numbers were drawn, but the youngest called the other two with the good news. The trio won almost AUD$50 million each.
  • A group of lucky Long Islanders received some exciting news in January 2019. The 23 co-workers had been playing in a syndicate for a long time, but this huge AUD$367 million win was worth the wait!

  • In July 2016, a family syndicate picked up a huge US Powerball jackpot win. The family remained anonymous, but we do know they collected a mind-blowing AUD$683 million between them.
  • Again in 2016, 20 co-workers from the North American Stamping Group in Portland, Tennessee, joined and played a US Powerball syndicate. The lucky players won just over AUD$17 million each, a share of the AUD$590 million US Powerball jackpot.

What is lotto syndicate?

A syndicate is a great way to increase your chances of winning without spending a huge amount of money. They allow you to pool your money with other players to buy larger quantities of tickets, increasing your chances of winning a prize.

How does lotto syndicate work?

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 a prize. The number of shares in a syndicate is fixed at the outset. You can buy as many shares for a syndicate as you like, until they're sold out. The more shares you have, the more money you’ll collect if the syndicate wins a prize. 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.
