One of the key aspects of playing syndicates is the ability to leverage the number of tickets you have a chance of winning with against the shares that all own that mega jackpot. BMillions is an online lottery betting syndicate provider. They offer a variety of both individual lottery syndicates and combos. One of the things that stood out to me is the statement that they do not deduct taxes. That certainly could make a big difference in winning one of those US lotteries like Powerball or Mega Millions. But how do they do it?
Games at BMillions.com
BMillions is a lottery syndicate site with 8 lotteries to play. Mega Millions has 60 lines/180 shares, EuroMillions has 50 lines/145 shares or 38 lines/120 shares, EuroJackpot has 68 lines/145 shares, Oz Lotto has 55 lines/73 shares, Lotto 6aus49 has 37 lines/80 shares, Lotto Sweden has 65 lines/75 shares, Lotto UK has 49 lines/130 shares and Thunderball has 69 lines/90 shares. Oz Lotto is the most attractive as that’s 55 lines for one draw. For the others – not so good. In some cases, the lines represent two or more draws a week. Players can choose 1, 2 or 5 shares with a minimum purchase of 1 month up to 3 or 6 months. Supposedly subscriptions can be canceled any time, though any ticket lines purchased are firm.
Combo Syndicates at BMillions
There is also a bunch of combo syndicates. The “4 Big” is 80 lines, 150 Shares – EuroMillions, EuroJackpot, Mega Millions & Oz Lotto. “Svenska Paketet” has 30 lines, 150 shares – Lotto Sweden, Euro Jackpot & Euro Millions. The “Oz Pack” includes 60 lines, 150 shares – Oz Lotto, Aussie Powerball, US Mega Millions. “Deutschland” has 40 lines, 150 shares – Lotto 6aus49, Mega Millions and EuroJackpot. “British Deluxe” is 80 lines, 150 shares – Mega Millions, UK Lotto, Thunderball, EuroMillions.

BMillions.com and Your Virtual Play Slip
It seems that BMillions.com actually purchases tickets when the jackpot is over €50 million. Once you purchase your shares, they are non-cancelable and non-refundable. There is a bunch of gobbly gook on getting your ticket and collecting the winnings yourself but that doesn’t seem to make sense when discussing syndicates.
Getting Your Winnings
BMillions.com say they do not charge any commissions for ‘cash outs’ but that there could be other third-party costs depending on the method you are getting your winnings. There are also the usual documents that are required including “color copy” of your passport, utility bill or bank statement for proof of residence and could include other documents – especially if the payout is over € 2,000. BMillions says any withdrawal could take up to 5 working days. There is a minimum $20 for any withdrawal. There is no information on how they guarantee any payout – like an insurance company or another third party.
Who Can Play at BMillions.com
Besides the usual you must be a minimum of 18 years of age, there are a bunch of countries that can’t play here – namely, Afghanistan, Belgium, British Virgin Islands, Cuba, Curacao, Denmark, Estonia, France, Gibraltar, Iran, Iraq, Ireland, Isle of Man, Israel, Italy, Jersey, Jordan, Malta, Netherlands Antilles, Pakistan, Romania, Seychelles, Somalia, Spain, Syria, United Kingdom, United States of America, United States Minor Outlying Islands, US Virgin Islands and Yemen.

The Bottom Line at BMillions.com
Looking at the actual ticket lines against shares, I would like a better ratio. This especially goes for the combo syndicates. Okay for the US lotteries, the fact that BMillions.com does not take taxes off the top does make these more attractive.

Processing Time to get Winnings – More Documents?
This site gets a reserved thumb’s up. It’s nice to see a site that has concentrated on lottery syndicates at the same time, I would like to see a better ratio of ticket lines against shares. Oh, and don’t forget to check in the list of countries whether you can play here.
