What is a Syndicate?
A Syndicate is a group of individuals who play collectively to increase their chance of winning.
The History of Syndicates
Before the introduction of the National Lottery, football pools Syndicates were common. The Syndicates attempted to win the tantalising jackpots by playing large tickets. Players would each play small stakes into these Syndicates to win large jackpots.
The first payout over £1 million was to a Syndicate in 1986. The record breaking payouts to Syndicates didn’t stop there! Only eight years later, another Syndicate won a jackpot over £2.9 million.
But, with the introduction of the National Lottery it all changed. The jackpots for the lotteries were more appealing to the Syndicates. As such, Syndicates switched to playing into lotteries with Syndicates owning many tickets in the draw.
But now the National Lottery odds are 45m to 1, we are bringing Syndicates back to football pools. Players can once again play with others and bet on more likely results in football pools.
