There are so many lottery syndicates out there, that those willing to join don’t need to look around for long before finding one that meets the expectations. Assuming that no such group is suitable for your needs or you have your personal idea about how the syndicate should look, there is nothing wrong in setting up one yourself. Obviously, there are a couple of guidelines that can help you start on the right foot and keep the organization going smoothly but all of them are subject to tinkering.
The very idea of lottery syndicates is that people pool money together to make it more affordable to purchase tickets. This allows them to spend the same amount of money while buying additional tickets, with the only downside being the fact that you have to split the jackpot if the group wins. It is a small price to pay given the fact that the odds of winning are remote, but nevertheless this is something to take into account from the very beginning.
In order to prevent any unpleasant situations, people are advised to be careful when setting up a lottery syndicate and be very scrupulous. The first step is to select your team and start playing right away and it is entirely up to the one who creates the syndicate to choose his colleagues. One way of doing this is by allowing only people from the inner circle, such as relatives, close friends and acquaintances to join.
The advantage is that you can put your trust into these people, but on the flip side, you would have fewer players which translates into less money being pooled together. Assuming you welcome strangers your lottery syndicates, it is even more important to be very strict about the terms and conditions. It can never be too safe and that’s why it is recommended to set the ground rules and create some official papers that all members are supposed to sign.
There are plenty of websites out there who offer practical syndicate kits for those who want to start from scratch, so help yourself to one. It is also the duty of the one who leads the syndicate to see how errands are assigned, so that all members have the same duties and privileges. If the rules are coherent and all the players in the syndicate agree to them, nobody will have to take care of too many chores and the entire group will be content.
It goes without saying that if the syndicate ends up winning the main prize, all the members in the group will have to enjoy a fair share. The question is what to do with second-tier prizes, which are by definition considerably lower and wouldn’t make rich the members if divided equally. Some lottery syndicates consider that it is better to use this money to purchase more tickets, others stick to the rules and split these prizes as well. Regardless of the choice, make sure all the members agree from the start.
