Discover Syndicates

More players, more chances

Share the excitement of playing and winning with colleagues, friends and family by creating a syndicate.

Syndicates are a great opportunity to share the fun and increase the chances of winning.

Through a Syndicate, a group of players have the possibility of increasing their chances of winning by participating with more numbers or combinations whilst sharing the cost of a ticket. The number of players to participate in a syndicate and the amount to play is up to you.


For example, let's say you and 7 of your friends decide to form a Super 5 Syndicate, pooling in €14 each. This gives you an opportunity to participate in a combination of 8 numbers which generates 56 combinations. So if your lottery syndicate is a winning one with 5, 4 or 3 numbers then you will equally share the corresponding winnings. (e.g. If your lottery syndicate is the sole winner of a jackpot of €500,000, your share would be a minimum of €62,500 plus other amounts from the Second and Third category winnings.)


Syndicates can be played weekly with the Grand Lottery, Super 5, Lotto and Quaterno+ Games. Players have the option to either organise their own “Player Syndicate” or participate by purchasing shares in a Syndicate organised by one of Maltco Lotteries Authorised Agents which is referred to as an “Agent Syndicate”.

How to play a Syndicate

Play together, win together

The idea is simple. Instead of buying individual tickets, everyone pools their money to buy tickets together.

Syndicates give chance to generate more number combinations thus more chances of higher winnings.
