A lottery syndicate is a group of players who purchase lottery tickets together and share in the prize winnings in proportion to the contribution of each participant. Traditionally, lottery syndicates consist of a group of friends, relatives, colleagues or neighbours.
Lottery syndicates also improve your chances at winning a prize while still paying less for tickets than you would if you played the lotto individually. All syndicate players pool money and tickets into a single draw, meaning you get more tickets to play in s single draw for less money!
