How do Syndicates work at Oz Lotteries?
Here at Oz Lotteries we handle organizing the syndicate group for you when you purchase a syndicate ticket on our website. Syndicates are a great way to have access to bigger and better ticket entries, without having to pay as much. You share the cost of a ticket with other like-minded people, and receive an equal share of the winnings, too!
Note: All image examples in this article are Powerball emails, but you will receive an email appropriate to whichever syndicate you have purchased e.g Oz Lotto or Saturday Lotto.
1. Purchasing a share
When you purchase a single syndicate ticket, you are opting in to public syndicate session with up to 9 other people. Your initial purchase reserves your share in the current syndicate session of your selected type (Small, Medium, Large, X-Large)
Note: When your syndicate share is reserved successfully, you will receive an email that looks like the one below
Note: If you purchase multiple syndicate shares of the same type within a short period of time, there is a good chance these shares will all be reserved in the same syndicate session. If you wish to purchase into different syndicate sessions, please wait for your confirmation email (step 2) for each share before purchasing another.
2. Wait for the syndicate session to fill
All you need to do now is wait for the syndicate session to finalise, which occurs when all 10 shares have been purchased. Please keep in mind that this process is entirely reliant on how long it takes the other shares to be purchased. Once all shares are purchased and the syndicate session has filled, success! You are now a part of a group of potential big winners!
Note: When your syndicate session is finalised, you will receive an email that looks like the one below
3. Check your results
The morning after the draw, you will receive an email from us detailing the results of your shared syndicate ticket, including a summary of any prizes that were won. You can always view your drawn tickets anytime on our website under My Account -> My Tickets -> Drawn Tickets.
Note: If your syndicate ticket is successful in winning a prize, you will receive an email that looks like the one below
If the other shares in your syndicate session are not sold in time before the draw, your syndicate session will be cancelled. In this case, the cost of the share(s) you have paid will return to your Oz Lotteries account. This will occur shortly after the draw.
Note: If your syndicate session is cancelled, you will receive an email that looks like the one below
