Frequently Asked Questions
  • You massively increase your chances of winning!
  • You have input into the numbers used in your syndicate.
  • We use weighting on the numbers selected in the syndicates so that those better at picking numbers will have their selections worth more than those who are unlucky.
  • It's only $10 a week to play.
  • By forming large groups of people we can utilise the power of 'Wisdom of Crowds' to help pick the winning numbers.
  • We have low administration fees, so more of your money goes to increasing your chances of winning.
  • For detail on how the Mega Syndicate process works and how you participate please read through the 'How It Works' page.
  • Lotto System tickets allow you to enter tickets for every possible six number combination from the numbers you select. For example, a system 20 ticket will have an entry for every combination of the 20 numbers you select, from the 45 total numbers in the draw.
  • Lottery syndicates pool together all the funds of a large number of individuals. This enables members to invest much larger amounts of cash in the lottery than they may normally have the ability to afford, boosting their possibilities of possessing the winning lottery ticket in the process.
  • To participate in a syndicate for an upcoming Saturday Lotto draw your payment for entry must have been successfully received by Mega Syndicate by 1pm that Saturday (NSW time).
  • The aim of Mega Syndicate is to create syndicates of up to 2,825 entries. A full syndicate of 2,825 entries allow us to purchase one system 20 ticket (cost of over $25,000). However, if we don't have a full syndicate that's fine, based on the number of entries we'll purchase this biggest possible system ticket/s. For example, if we had 126 entries in a syndicate then we would have enough to purchase a system 13 ticket (cost of over $1,100).
