Why You Should Join a Syndicate for £135 Million EuroMillions Draw

Why You Should Join a Syndicate for £135 Million EuroMillions Draw

With the EuroMillions jackpot currently worth an estimated £135 million ahead of this Friday’s draw, have you thought about joining an online syndicate to improve your chances of winning? Find out about the benefits of playing as part of a syndicate, and you could be onto a winner when the numbers are drawn on Friday evening.

Why Is The Jackpot So Big?

A EuroMillions Superdraw was held on Friday 21st September, with a nine-figure jackpot worth £116.8 million up for grabs. No one was able to match all five main numbers and the two Lucky Stars on the night, so the jackpot rolled over to £124.4 million for the draw on Tuesday 25th September. There were over 2.4 million winners in that draw, including two ticket holders who were just one Lucky Star away from taking home the jackpot, which wasn’t won.

With the jackpot rolling over for two consecutive draws following the Superdraw, players in all nine participating countries, as well as those who play online from various locations around the world, will be desperate to land the significant jackpot on offer. The jackpot can reach a maximum value of €190 million (approximately £170 million) before it has to be won so if this Friday’s top prize isn’t claimed, there will be yet another rollover ahead of next Tuesday’s draw.

Advantages of an Online Syndicate Entry

Some EuroMillions players may have a routine for picking their numbers, from buying a playslip at the same store, to picking the same numbers week-in, week-out, based on particular dates such as birthdays, anniversaries and weddings. However, at £2.50 per line, buying lines for yourself can be expensive if you want to enter multiple ones in the same draw.

This is why playing EuroMillions as part of a syndicate is an increasingly popular option, offering a convenient, hassle-free, and more cost-effective way to play. Joining an online syndicate can increase your chances of winning at no extra cost, because you are teaming up with other syndicate members to buy tickets, so you have a share of more lines.

If you were to win as part of a syndicate, your winnings would be split amongst all members of the group. Organising a syndicate with family, friends or work colleagues would need someone to organise the group and create a syndicate agreement, but when you join online this is all managed for you. You are also kept up to date in your online account and notified via email if you have won a prize.

Syndicate Jackpot Winners

There have been many syndicate jackpot winners over the years, including a 32-strong syndicate group from Ireland who scooped a £14.8 million EuroMillions jackpot in June. A syndicate made up of six NHS workers won a jackpot worth £25.4 million last November, and you can follow in their footsteps this Friday by joining a syndicate via our Lottery Tickets page.
