    This should have been posted in the Compers Chat Corner, not on the Regular Competitions board.
    Move requested.

    The lottery is a gamble not an investment (unless you are a shareholder). The online syndicates I have seen put maybe 10p on for each pound that is paid to them so you lose 90% to begin with.
    A friends/family/workplace syndicated where all the money taken in is put on tickets is a less bad option. But with the Lotto only paying out around 50% of the money staked you chances of a regular winning return is very very slim. Jackpot odds are about 45,000,000 to 1 and a ticket is £2 . By all means have a punt if you want while not expecting a worthwhile proper win.
