What Happens If Your Syndicate Wins?

If one or more tickets owned by your syndicate are winners, then you will be immediately notified by theLotter. You will then collect the fraction of the prize corresponding to the share(s) you have purchased in the syndicate.

Syndicate Terms 101

Line – This term refers to the unique combination of numbers that is used for a lottery ticket. As such, 100-line syndicates have 100 unique number combinations or 100 tickets. These give them a total of 100 chances of becoming lottery winners.


Total Shares – When you want to play the lottery as part of a syndicate, you purchase shares instead of tickets. Each syndicate is dived into equal shares that are available to customers. For example, a syndicate featuring 50 shares entitle each shareholder to 2 % of the collective winnings generated by the tickets. Please note that shares entitle players to a portion of the overall win and not to specific tickets in the group. As such, the more shares players buy, the larger their portion of the win will be.
