If you’re into syndicates and only interested in EuroMillions, then 777Lottos.com might be where you want to play. This is an online lottery provider site that provides two sizes of syndicates only for EuroMillions. Being in a syndicate does mean you increase your odds of winning simply because you have a share in more tickets. But – yes the big but – the ratio of members and tickets definitely is important. Let’s go take a look.
Games at 777Lottos.com
This site offers two types of syndicates for one lottery – EuroMillions. The first syndicate has 75 lines per week split 30 lines for the Tuesday draw and 45 for the Friday draw. Times that by four weeks and you have a share of a total of 300 tickets. Players choose their specific 2 lines to be included in the draw, one of Tuesday and one on Friday twice a month. Okay, I have a problem with that. What would happen if the line I chose was used on Tuesday and not Friday – and won on Friday? The other syndicate they offer only has 100 members but only shares in 200 tickets a month with the same concept of 25 on Tuesday and 25 on Friday. Ditto on when your ticket numbers show. Entering a syndicate is for a minimum of 3 months.
Getting Your Winnings
Winnings are subject to a minimum payout of £10 and more per player. If the winnings in a syndicate are less than that, then the amount is carried over to the next month until the winnings get to that point. Players are notified by email what they have won. After request your “request is successful” for a payout, winnings will be transferred within two working/business days. 777Lottos.com says that winnings are commission free. Oh, and if you stop playing during any three month period, any wins accrued cannot be collected.
777Lottos.com and Their Guarantee
If you don’t win within a calendar month that is part of three months of continuous play, you will be refunded your costs for that particular month. It is interesting they use the term calendar month versus 4-week play which is actually the period you usually buy tickets for. The only thing is they say that they can change the numbers any time they want.
Free Tickets at 777Lottos
Free tickets are played on Friday’s draw and only paid out if they win after you’ve played for three months continuously. Stop playing and you don’t get the winnings. Darned if I could figure out how you get free tickets – they don’t seem to be any info on their website.
Who Can Play?
Only UK residents 18 years old or older can play here. That’s important because they will not refund your membership fee if you make a mistake and join.
Who Are They??
777Lottos is owned by a company registered in the UK with a snail mail address in London. For customer service, they provide a telephone number and email address, Monday to Friday 9:00 am to 6:00 pm GMT, and Saturday from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm. They do respond to the emails fairly timely. Customer service by telephone is prompt and they seem to know what they are talking about – then again, this is only two syndicates for one lottery.
The Bottom Line at 777Lottos.com
Playing syndicates is great for increasing your probability odds of winning, but I’m usually looking for a lot more tickets per draw than shares or members. Take their largest syndicate of 150 members, they only offer 30 or 45 tickets per draw. That’s not a ratio I’d be happy with.

Poor Syndicate Ratio of Tickets to Players

This site gets a thumb’s down simply because of their syndicate share ratio. When I play in a syndicate, I’m looking for something with at least as many tickets per members.
