The EuroMillions has become a very popular lottery game since its launch in 2004 and is enjoyed by millions of people each week. I am going to show you why I think it makes sense to play this game as a member of a Euro Millions syndicate rather than play alone as a sole ticket holder.
The EuroMillions is currently available to players in Andorra, Austria, Belgium, France, Ireland, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Monaco, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. Players from these countries can either buy a ticket from a high street lottery retailer or via the website of their respective country’s lottery operator. However, these days pretty much anyone can play the Euro Millions online by making use of one of the many recognised web based lottery retailers.
The reason why the EuroMillions has become such a popular game in mainly due to the large jackpots that are often on offer. The reason why these jackpots are often large is due to the fact that jackpots roll over (grow in size) if they are not won in either of the two weekly draws. Rollovers in the Euro Millions are common and on occasions there have been many back to back rollovers meaning that the jackpots have grown to very large sums indeed. In fact, the very biggest Euro Millions jackpot has reached £161 million.
You may be asking yourself “why do Euro Millions jackpots rollover so often?” Well, the answer to this is simply and that is because the jackpot winning odds are so terrible. In fact, your chances of scooping the jackpot are a ludicrous 1 in 116,531,800. I am not sitting here telling you that you should therefore not play the Euro Millions; I am simply suggesting that you play this lottery in a slightly more odds beneficial manner by joining a Euro Millions syndicate. Lottery syndicates are a tried and tested way of enjoying lottery games while boosting your odds of winning some lottery cash. You simply pool your lottery playing resources with others meaning that your group can collectively purchase more Euro Millions entries. Any winnings are then shared equally among the members of your Euro Millions syndicate.
Syndicate play is not for everyone because certain individuals do not like the thought of having to share out winnings. However, I have always said that it is better to receive a small percentage of something than 100% of nothing! Since the Euro Millions offers such pathetic odds when you play as a single ticket holder, I believe that joining forces with others and playing in a Euro Millions syndicate just makes perfect sense. If you do not know anyone who is interested in joining a syndicate or you simply haven’t got the time or patience to look into setting one up, there are a number of online companies that make the process very simple for you.
WinTrillions, LoveMyLotto and Big Fat Lottos are three quality syndicate companies who each offer a Euro Millions syndicate. You do not have to worry about finding members for your syndicate or collecting money from each member for ticket purchases. You simply register, choose your syndicate, pay your subscription and that is it. Any winnings are split equally between all syndicate members and are paid out free of deductions. Your syndicate numbers are checked automatically and you are emailed if you have won a cash prize.
If you are serious about securing more regular wins in the EuroMillions, you should consider setting up or joining a Euro Millions syndicate.
