I know a lot of work places do these, but there is no reason we couldn't!
Would anyone be interested?

Each person who is interested would put a pound or so in each week, or 4 pounds a month or something like that...
And then I buy that many lottery tickets. If a ticket wins, the money is split equally (or to a ratio of how many £££ you put in).

Basically, for the same cost of one lottery ticket, you get maybe four or five times the chance of winning..

I think the lottery is great fun, and it's exciting.

Each week, I would post the lottery ticket numbers we have, so that you know I am not hiding any secret winnings or whatever... And I am pretty certain you can actually sign up AS a syndicate to make sure I ACTUALLY give you any winnings etc.

I like that my wife do it every win
Every win? That's a clever strategy, although if you know when you are going to Win, wouldn't you be better off entering by yourself? ;)

(I'm joking, I know what you mean) :p
I think it would a right laugh!

I will set one up, just let me know if you wish to be included, and we can arrange how to do the payments and set up an agreement and that stuff...

True, I'm thinking a share of £2.1 million between 5 is better then not winning!

Sod that, I would be happy even with the 10 grand price between 5!
Any ammount of winnings would be good, and the more of us there are, the better our chances are.
I think something like 1 in 5 lottery wins are syndicates. Some silly statistic like that!
Even just a fiver to be fair, it would still be exciting hehe

:)

Okay, I shall get the paper work and organisation stuff sorted out then :)
Do you 3 all have pay pal?
ALSO, would you want to play the same numbers each week? or Different numbers?

I would imagine the same numbers in hope that that that may come out one day... i do not have paypal but can pay you in the same way as my donation at beginning of the forum. or if it just a fiver or something then i can just post you a fiver each time.

You can either pay me per week, or you can pay in advance if you like....
Up to you. I will get a balance type thing going...

Well a ticket = £1.
So either everyone can put a £ a week in.
Or alternatively, you can pay what you want, and your share of any winnings would be proportional to that...

Up to you which method we go for...

proportions might get abit bitchy and stuff, just make it one ticket a week per member, much easier to manage

Agreement set up and attached.
I will set up the relevant threads later :)
I figured we can start in the new year?

Other people can join in as and when they wish...

Sounds good but perhaps we shouldn't let 1 lotto syndicate group get too big. Diminishing returns and all that. Say 10 people to a group? Each group get their own thread under a new lotto section?

Erm, possibly.
I just can't imagine half of a forum winning a small fortune would go down very well with the other half ^^

We shall just see how big it actually gets...
And we can discuss that later :p

Everyone who wishes to take part, please send me a PM and I will add you to the new private area of the forum I will make shortly.
