What is a syndicate?
A syndicate is a group of lottery players who share the cost of a Lotto ticket to play more games.
Playing more games increases the chance of winning. If the syndicate wins, the prizes are shared equally among all the syndicate members.
Syndicates are available for Saturday Lotto, Monday and Wednesday Lotto, OZ Lotto, Powerball and Soccer Pools. You can also play Systems as part of a syndicate.
How can I be part of a syndicate?
1. Ask your Lotterywest retailer
You can be part of a Syndicate through your Lotterywest store. Ask your retailer what syndicate shares they have available for the game you want to play. You will receive a share ticket and prizes can be claimed at any Lotterywest store using this ticket.
TIP: Register your share ticket on your Lotterywest Player’s Card so you don’t miss out on claiming your winnings.
2. Create your own
Create your own syndicate with friends and family. Select the game and ticket option you would like to play and divide the total cost of the tickets by the number of shares to determine the cost per syndicate member. Then, visit your Lotterywest store and fill out a playslip or ask for a Slikpik.
Your retailer can also help you choose what kind of tickets suit the budget your syndicate wants to spend.
The Syndicate Planner makes keeping your records easy.
Your retailer can create a player syndicate and print a valid share ticket for each syndicate member. Each member can then claim any prizes from any Lotterywest store using their own share ticket.
Syndicates are a great way to try Systems – you’ll get more entries per game.
Finding out if you're a winner is easy
There are many ways you can find out if your syndicate has won a prize.
- Scan the barcode on your share ticket at a Lotterywest store using the ticket checker.
- Check the draw results, watch the draw on Channel 7 or read The West Australian.

You can also register your tickets on your Lotterywest Player’s Card. If you don’t already have a Lotterywest Player’s Card, ask your retailer how you can register for one.
