Many people invest a lot of time trying to come up with the perfect formula to win the lotto, but the truth is there is no guaranteed way to beat the odds. However, the winner stories below may just give you some tips on how to increase your chances of winning.
Family Syndicate wins big
A Gold Coast family is celebrating after finding out their long-running Syndicate won Division 1 in a Saturday Lotto draw! The lucky family from Miami, just south of Surfers Paradise, won a total prize of $673,690. Not only did they win Division 1, but they also won Division 3, 12 times, and Division 4, 15 times.
Although choosing to remain anonymous, when the lottery official contacted the Syndicate organiser to confirm the win, he revealed his family has been playing the same lotto numbers for around 40 years.
“It’s just wonderful!… It’s a family Syndicate – they’re just numbers we’ve been playing for about 40 years!” he said.
The family Syndicate purchased a marked System 8 entry from a newsagent in Miami for Saturday Lotto on 11th November 2017. The winning numbers were 30, 19, 43, 18, 27, 38, and the supplementary numbers were 21 and 16.
A Perth man claims to have ‘cracked the code’
A man from Perth believes he has cracked the code to winning the lotto after winning his sixth Division 1 prize in five years. The man was one of 12 syndicate winners from Western Australia who won a share of $658,000 in last weekend’s Saturday Lotto. And he said the secret to his success was Syndicates.
“Not only do I increase my chances of winning but the cost is shared among 12 of us, so it’s a relatively cheap way to play.”
The man from Maddington, South Perth, has won around $500,000 in prize money over the past five years, with five of his six winning tickets bought incredibly from the same local newsagent.
How to play a Syndicate with Oz Lotteries
Increase your odds with a Syndicate
Syndicates let you share the cost of a lotto ticket with other players so that you can play a lot more games for less money. Playing more games increases your chance of winning. And if the Syndicate wins, the prizes are shared equally among the Syndicate players. Learn more about Syndicate shares.
More chances to win for less
On average, most of our Syndicates offer over 500 chances to win a jackpot for less than $50. This works out to be 20 times cheaper, on average, than it would to buy the same amount of tickets on your own. Our Syndicates are made up of small groups of 10-20 people. This size of group provides a good balance between increasing your chances of winning and lower prize shares.
We look after everything
Oz Lotteries manages each Syndicate so that you don’t have to worry. Each player pays for their share and once all shares of a Syndicate are filled, Oz Lotteries purchases the tickets. You’ll then receive an email to let you know what numbers your Syndicate is playing for the coming draws.
After each draw, we send you a results email that lets you know whether your Syndicate has won a prize. If you have won, Oz Lotteries divides the prize equally between all shares and deposits the funds into your Oz Lotteries account. You can then either withdraw your winnings or use these funds to purchase additional tickets on Oz Lotteries.
