The Ultimate PlayEuroLotto Guide to Lottery Syndicates Posted: Tuesday, 1 November 2016 Syndicates are one of least publicised aspects of lottery gameplay, despite the fact that they claim a huge share of the prize money on offer globally. In fact, around one in every four major national and international lottery jackpots is won by a lottery syndicate. This complete guide to lottery syndicates is built to tell you exactly what syndicates are, how they operate, and how you can join one today with PlayEuroLotto.

The term ‘lotto syndicate’ refers to a group of lottery players who pool their tickets together in the agreement that if any of the tickets wins a prize, the prize money will be shared between all members of the syndicate, in proportion to each member’s investment of tickets. For example, if ten players add one ticket each to the syndicate and ten players add two tickets each, there will be a total of thirty syndicate shares. If one of the tickets wins the jackpot, each player receives a share of the prize money according to the number of shares they own. Let’s say the jackpot here is €30 million. In that case, the ten players who added one ticket each to the syndicate will receive €1 million each, while the ten players who added two tickets will receive €2 million each. How do syndicate odds compare to regular lottery odds? The key reason why many lottery players choose group play as part of a syndicate is that the odds of winning a big prize in a syndicate are massively higher than they would be if you were playing alone. For every ticket that’s entered into the lottery by your syndicate, your chance of winning a share of a jackpot goes up. So if 50 tickets are entered into a €100 million lottery and you hold one out of fifty shares, you’ll have a 50 times better chance of winning a €2 million share of that jackpot than your chance of winning the full jackpot would have been if you were playing alone. If your syndicate had played 100 tickets in that same draw and you held one share, your chance of winning €1 million would be 100 times greater than if you were playing alone. For those of you who are still asking, “Why play syndicate lottery?”, it’s simple: it will give you a greatly increased chance of changing your life.
