The National Lottery loves to promote a winning syndicate team - especially when it can have a massive impact on a business - imagine all of your finance and payroll staff winning the lottery one Saturday, to find that by Tuesday, you have no-one to pay your suppliers or more importantly your remaining staff !!
It's a wonder the insurance companies have not caught onto this and offered all business insurance cover for this eventuality. Mind you the odds against it happening are so horrendous, it would be an excellent money making opportunity for insurers!
On the other hand, how many staff would love the opportunity to stick two fingers up to their bosses when on Monday morning a whole department turn up just to hand their notice in and then go down the pub to celebrate?
I remember one lottery syndicate which was run within a legal firm I used to work for - there were 20 players in the syndicate, basically all of the support staff and one or two solicitors. Even with that support over 2 1/2 years, I think we won a grand total of about £60 (or £3 each).
Had I known about Virtual World Direct's Online Lottery Syndicate
I would have recommended that we use the £20 per week to sign up with VWD - after paying £4.99 to become an affiliate, plus £5pw, the first person could introduce 3 others each paying £5pw. All four would be the trustees for the office Lottery Syndicate and for an outlay of the same £20pw, the office syndicate would no longer receive just 20 lines on the Saturday lottery draw, but actually receive 176 lines on both
the Wednesday and Saturday lottos, plus getting £3 back per week in affiliate fees.
Suddenly the dreams of sticking it to the bosses seem a whole lot nearer, with a total of 352 lines per week on the lottery, this is equivalent to the office lottery playing over 17 weeks.
An interesting concept indeed - now all we need is to find 20 willing volunteers at work....
