Lottery Syndicates Work: FACT!

Read 69 Comments...

There is one undeniable truth about lottery syndicates. They work. By doing exactly what they promise.

lottery syndicates pull together

In fact, they cannot fail to work. Because the way they work is by using the one ‘secret’ that all genuine lottery systems come back to.

They buy more tickets. Usually a lot more tickets.

That’s it!

Boring. But it works.

How Do Lottery Syndicates Work?

Lottery syndicates give you a better chance of winning, by pooling your money and buying more tickets.

So when you join a syndicate you are instantly more likely to win the lottery. Simple as that.

Of course there is a downside to playing in a syndicate group. You have to share the winnings with the other people in your group.

I’m Not Sharing My Winnings!

Think of it this way. Is it better to have a small share of a big jackpot, or to have a big share in a whole lotta nothing..!?

That’s why lottery syndicates make sense – for most people.

But there is one critical thing to look out for.

You still have to know what you want to win.

Is The Jackpot Big Enough?

Look, I know it’s easy just to say “I want the big one”.

But the biggest jackpots are the hardest to win. Look at Italy’s SuperEnalotto at 1-in-622 Million, or even the US Powerball odds at 1-in-175 Million.

So even when playing in a lottery syndicate, you need to choose the right game for you.

That means checking what a typical jackpot is, and dividing it by the number of people in a syndicate group.

If that figure wouldn’t make some very nice changes to your life, then it isn’t enough.

But on the other hand if it’s still an enormous sum (‘too much’) – then it’s probably the wrong game. Because either the odds are too big, or the group sizes are too small.

Choosing The Best Online Syndicate

It’s not an exact science. One size does not fit all!

You do need think a little about odds, prizes and your share.

But here are the online lottery syndicates I like. I’ve personally used all of these, and received good service. So I can recommend them.

Between them they offer a variety of different lottery games, group sizes and payment options.

You just need to choose which is best for you (players in the USA, scroll further down).

worldwideSyndicate Options:-

  1. You Play We Play (YPWP) – good value this one, and you can play as and when you like (or subscribe). YPWP play EuroMillions, Thunderball and UK Lotto. Fair warning – the website is pretty clunky and in dire need of updating. But it’s free to join up and have a look around. Been going since 2006. Play Here
  2. WinTrillions – They have a growing range of syndicates, everything from Irish Lotto to Powerball & Mega Millions (avoid the Oz Lotto syndicate though – bad value for money). I don’t really recommend buying tickets from them (quite expensive) but some of their syndicates are much better value. Established in 2006. Play Here
  3. TheLotter – These are the old timers of online ticket buying – they’ve been doing it since 2002, so have a solid track record. And they’ve built up quite a wide range of syndicate options now – everything from the Canada Lotto 6/49 to the New Zealand Powerball – 26 choices last time I counted! Play Here

[NOTE: These are open pretty much worldwide but not the USA]


usaflagSyndicate Options For Players In USA:-

  1. LottoLishus – based in Fresno, California these guys are relative newcomers but offer a really neat approach to playing in a group, with 3 different ways you can win a share of the prizes. You can play Mega Millions and Powerball with them. Play Here

If you can recommend another syndicate that I haven’t listed, please do let me know (or comment below) and I’ll add it here for everyones benefit.

Obviously it must be one you have personally used and would recommend to other people!

    I joined the PowerBall Combo (6 months), PowerBall (3 months) syndicates on WinTrillions. I did not realize that there was an auto-renew on the account. They will not tell you how much the charge will be (or what firm will charge as they use 20 international processors).

    My issues: (1) Website showed $ 285. I was charged $ 302.96 and when declined (by fraud dept at my credit card) I was charged 300.79 another day. (2) I also recd an email asking for a copy of my ID, Driver’s Lic., or Passport; with my utility bills and a copy of my credit cards registered. Why would a lottery syndicate wish to verify my details for continued use of their services?

    Have you personally used WinTrillions, and are you confident they are legit?

    Thank you.

      That’s because they can’t know what charges your credit card company might add on (currency conversion or other fees). So you do know the price, i.e. $285. That’s what they charge to your card. What comes out on your statement depends on what your bank does – they have no way of knowing that 🙂

      The reason they are asking for ID from you is only because your bank rejected the payment – they now need to protect themselves from possible fraudulent card use. So they are basically asking you to prove you really are the card holder. But you need to talk to your bank first and make sure they don’t keep rejecting payments you want to go through.

      Yes, I’ve personally used WinTrillions and they are legit 🙂

      Hope that helps.

      • Mahesh

        Thank you for your clarification. I had personally authorized the payment with my credit card.

        I have requested WinTrillions not to auto-renew. (hence no future payments are at issue).

        They asked that the documents be sent by (unencrypted) email. They did not provide the fax, or mailing address, and I did not know the firm I am dealing with, which was why I was asking the questions. Once burnt, twice shy I guess.

        The way I was thinking, no one goes to a shop, buys something, pays for it by credit card, and then the billing department of the shop comes seeking documents (Driver’s license which puts SSN at risk, Credit Card, and Utility bills) by responding to (unencrypted email).

        You are huge help with your website and quick responses. Much Appreciated! Thank you!

    I am just curious to know what do you say about complaints about one of your suggested lottery websites – WinTrillions – see below:


    • LG

      Any company with many thousands of customers is going to have complaints at some stage. So I think it’s actually pretty reassuring that there are so few complaints for a company that has been going since 2005 :-).

      Hope that helps.

    Good day, I joined a LottoLand syndicate group once upon time and what I expected with a syndicate is free and fair game. Whenever the winning come up and every member of the group he/she have to see the list of the winning game or the list of the game the group is going to play, but to my suprise whenever I played the game then they only show me the list of the game that I play.

    If it’s really a syndicate group then a member should view the list of the rest of the games the group plays, if not so that mean’s it’s not a syndicate.

    • LG

      Are you sure you actually chose a syndicate option..? LottoLand provide lots of ways to play, and many of those options are not syndicate groups. What did they say when you asked them..?

  • Mary

    Hello, I’m so scared to play with a group. Like I’m about to go with a syndicate and play one time, so if someone from the group wins do all of us get a share of the winnings? And how you get your winnings?

    • LG

      Yes – that’s normalyl how it works :-). So if any ticket bought by the group you are in wins, then everybody shares the winnings. How you get your winnings depends on which syndicate group or company you mean – the online ones typically either credit your bank account, or send a cheque.

    I played the Syndicate option ONCE and experienced the same situation, i.e. only seen the numbers I had chosen. Then after the draw it showed no winners this time etc. So I wrote to them (as that’s the only way to connect with them, via a computer!), they responded stating they only give out the numbers IF you ASK for them (for ALL the numbers in the syndicate), which I did (even though I knew already there was no winning lines… out of 200 lines!). They emailed me an Excel version of the lines, which were nearly all the same numbers, except they changed ONE number in each line, each time. So obviously not in a syndicate with others, just in your OWN syndicate and also unlike their other draws you don’t have the option of choosing your numbers, they choose them for you! Never did a syndicate with them again as that’s not my idea of being a syndicate.

    • LG

      Sorry George I don’t really understand the problem. You’re clearly not in a syndicate on your own if there are 200 lines being played. You’re not personally paying for those 200 lines. That’s the group funding those.

      You also said you chose your numbers, but then said you don’t have the option of choosing numbers..? So it sounds like you played with a company that offers preset ranges of combinations (you chose from a small range of starting numbers and they cover 200 combinations from that point on – increasing one number each time, as you said). Again, nothing wrong here. For larger syndicates this lets them manage groups and entries more efficiently and avoid overlaps (two syndicate groups playing the same combination). Everyone in the group knows the full set of numbers, as they follow on from the start set. But you asked for the full set, and they provided it. All sounds like they were doing what they promised?
