How can I be part of a syndicate?
Buy a share in-store
Visit a Lotterywest store to buy a share in a syndicate. Simply ask what shares are available for the game you want to play or how much you would like to spend. If you have a Lotterywest membership, make sure you register your ticket against it so your winnings are automatically paid out to it.
Create your own
You can create your own syndicate with friends and family. Start by downloading the Syndicate Planner and select the game and ticket options you want to play. Then you’re ready to visit your local Lotterywest store and fill in a playslip or ask for a Slikpik. Ask the retailer to print a valid share ticket for each syndicate member. This gives each person the peace of mind and convenience to claim their share of prizes on winning entries themselves.
How can I play Systems?
A System entry allows you to play up to 20 of your selected numbers, and every possible combination of those numbers. For example, select seven numbers to play a System 7 entry, select 18 numbers to play a System 18, and so on. You can choose your own numbers on a playslip or ask for a Slikpik or Set for Life QuickSET.
