Creating a lottery syndicate can improve your chances of snapping up lottery prizes, whether it is Lotto, EuroMillions or Thunderball. You can either enter an online syndicate for added convenience and security, or create your own offline group.

Linking up with work colleagues, neighbours or friends can be great fun and would allow you to enjoy any success you achieve together, but it is a good idea to have a few rules in place to make sure that everything runs smoothly.

Every player should make sure they read the agreement carefully and then sign it. A syndicate agreement can help to avoid disputes and make the whole process much more straightforward.
