How to Play a Lottery Syndicate Online

What Is a Syndicate?

A lottery syndicate is a group of players who gather their money to buy loads of lottery tickets together. This increases everybody’s chance of winning.

At Lotto Simple, syndicate members get to enter lottery draws with up to hundreds of lines at a time! This means that you can claim winnings from multiple prize categories. You can play the world’s biggest lotteries in Lotto Simple syndicates.

How It Works

You can play syndicates for the world’s top lotteries at Lotto Simple. We select lottery numbers and buy batches of lottery tickets prior to each participating draw. There are many types of syndicates on our site, so all you need to do is choose your favourite syndicate and purchase shares. You do not even need to create a group of players for your syndicate – we find the players and set it all up for you.


What Happens When You Win

When your syndicate wins, Lotto Simple will notify you of the win and will ensure that you receive your prize. Each player owns a share in the winnings proportionate to how much money he or she contributed to the syndicate.

Syndicate Terms Explained

Lines – The lines are the different number combinations that are bought for a syndicate. As an example, a 100-line syndicate has 100 unique number combinations (also known as blocks or tickets), giving syndicate players 100 chances of winning the jackpot. These lines are bought by the syndicate for the upcoming draw.


Total Shares – Each syndicate is divided into equal parts, made available for purchase. These parts, also known as Shares, determine the portion of the syndicate’s prizes that you stand to win. For example, if a syndicate has 50 total shares, each share will give you 2% of the syndicate’s prizes (100% divided into 50 equal pieces). The more shares you buy, the larger your portion of the prize will be.

Most Frequently Asked Questions About Lottery Syndicates


How are the numbers of a syndicate chosen? Can I pick my own numbers?


Syndicate numbers are randomly preselected when the syndicate is created by Lotto Simple. When you join a syndicate, you are not able to choose or change the syndicate’s numbers. You can view the participating numbers in advance when deciding which syndicate to join.


How are syndicate wins divided?


When a syndicate wins, the winnings are divided equally between the number of total shares. Your percentage of the prize depends on the number of shares you bought in that syndicate.


What happens if not all syndicate shares are purchased?


Your portion of the syndicate, your winning odds and your percentage of the prizes are independent of the number of shares sold in the syndicate, and will remain unchanged. The syndicate will purchase all participating lines, regardless of how many shares are actually sold, at no extra cost to you.
