Would anyone else like to join our (rather quite successful) Lottery syndicate?
6 of us going so far.

Costs £1 a week.

Maybe up to a max of 10, otherwise to many people and make any small wins pointless.

Not nesercarily...
I would genuinely be happy with even just 10k!
That would buy my new bike, pay for the insurance, tax, petrol, and servicing for quite a couple years...

Yeah that is very true Cameron. I would prob not bother if more than 10 people do join but can deal with they at the time.

where are you buying your bike from, Cam? Halfords? £10k each, or £10k between 10 of us?

Even if we only won 10k in total increasing the players from 6 to 10 we would each lose £600! Dunno about you but thats a year insurance for me not to be sniffed at. So i am kinda happy the way things are now but not my decision.

the likelihood of us winning is minimal, Scott. i'd be happy with £16 to brim the tank. wouldn't you?

I dunno our chance is the same as every other person who is playing.

so 14,000,000 individual people play the lottery every week, many buy multiple tickets. take into account the National Lottery Fund...

yeah you're looking at a piss-poor chance of winning a pot of piss.

So why do you bother? I like to look at life from an optamistic point of view. Also no matter how many tickets are bought a single person buying 1 ticket the odds are the same, 14million to 1 is based on combinations of numbers and nothing to do with how many people buy tickets.

Hey, if you won 10k each.
Then £600 less isn't going to be hugely noticed.
I would still be happy none the less.

More players = more lines we have and therefore a better chance of winning.

10k each would be 100k between 10 so if only 6 of you would get an extra 6k!

Right... well... whoever posted that first post was confusing ><

Whatever. As normal, it's up to you guys ^^
I would suggest TWO groups, but then there would be a major falling out if one group won anything big ><
