What is a syndicate?
Most people would agree that the surest way to gain an advantage in the lottery is to join a syndicate. It’s simple, reliable and convenient – no calculations, no struggling with software that may or may not tell the future, no hassle. The beauty of syndicates are that they are an unfailing method of increasing your odds to win the lottery. For those who aren’t familiar with what syndicates are, syndicates are groups of people who buy tickets in a pool and split the winnings.
How to choose a syndicate?
Choosing a syndicate could be a confusing process. It’s vital to insist on a formal agreement between yourself and the manager of the group to avoid any future disputes and to ensure that all dealings are regulated. A clever method of picking the right syndicate game would be to balance the jackpot prize against the number of group members to calculate exactly how much you could stand to win.
Here are a few helpful questions to ask when picking a suitable syndicate:
- What lottery games do they play?
- How many tickets do they buy?
- How many players are there in a group?
- What are the picking methods? (quick picks or own selection)
- What are the payment options?
As previously stated, your chances of winning are much better with a syndicate yet there are a few downfalls which include having to share your winnings with the other members of your syndicate. It has also been reported that syndicates do experience private disagreements among its members but that’s why you should be extra careful when signing up to make sure to read all the terms and conditions so that you know exactly what to expect from the syndicate.
