GiantLottos Syndicates Review

Playing in a lottery syndicate is a great way to increase your chances of winning something big while minimising your initial investment. It is for this reason that they have grown in popularity and are now offered by more lottery sites than ever before. In this GiantLottos.com syndicates review, we will look at the syndicates on offer by this great site and see how you can use them to win you a decent amount of spare cash.

WHAT ARE GiantLottos.com LOTTERY SYNDICATES?

GiantLottos Syndicates ReviewAs with the syndicates offered by most other online lottery websites, the lottery syndicates offered by GiantLottos.com function in a straightforward way. They allow players from around the world to pool their money together into a central fund. This fund is then used to purchase a large number of tickets for a specific lottery draw, thereby greatly increasing the chances of winning the jackpot and/or secondary prizes. If the syndicate does win, the winnings are spread out amongst all the players in the syndicate based on their initial investment (or shares).

While there are four different methods that syndicates use, it appears that all syndicates available on GiantLottos.com use the most common of these methods—Random Selection. This method ignores any calculated patterns or any other prediction algorithm and selects the numbers to play purely by chance.

SYNDICATE OPTIONS AVAILABLE

There are currently only four lottery syndicates available on the site:

This syndicate allows you to compete for potential jackpots of €190 million for the ridiculously low price of just $1.58. For this amount, you will receive a single share that uses 15 lines of play to reduce your odds of winning the EuroMillions jackpot from 1 in 139,838,160 to 1 in 9,322,544. Since each draw is split among 150 shares, one share could be valued at a respectable €1.26 million in the case of a win. If you choose to increase your investment and purchase nine shares, you could win a possible €11.4 million.

Owning five shares could give you winnings of $38.4 million.

GiantLottos.com SYNDICATES CONCLUSION

We are generally impressed by the selection of online lottery syndicates available at GiantLottos.com. It is clear that there has been some thought placed on what lotteries will be offered for syndicate play and how many lines will be played for each of these syndicates.

However, if there are a couple of things that we do think can be improved upon, it is the number of lines that are purchased for each draw. Sure, buying 13 or 20 lines improves one’s odds of winning by a decent margin, but nowhere near as good as buying 100 or 200 lines would.

In addition, the number of shares available for the EuroMillions and Mega Millions syndicates is too many in our opinion, especially considering the limited number of lines per draw. While this high volume of shares is not a deal-breaker, it does disperse the prize pool more than we would like to see.

Nevertheless, one thing that makes us forget about all of the above is the win guarantee offered by both combo syndicates. This win guarantee allows you to play without having to worry about losing anything at all. After all, if you win, then you get money. If you don’t win, you get the cash you spent returned to you anyway.

To end with, let us say that we think the GiantLottos syndicates are worth taking a look at if you are looking for a place to play in organized group play. All in all, we are pretty sure that you will be happy investing your money here.
