Cancellation of membership by you
Cancelation of Membership must be facilitated through the Members bank or card provider. We do not accept liability for any account which a Member fails to cancel correctly. Members are required to notify us no less than 24 hours prior to the date of payment of the Membership fee that they wish to cancel.
Cancellation of membership by us
We may cancel the membership in any of the following circumstances:
Direct Debit Membership
To participate in a Syndicate, you must pay the Fee to become a Member of such a Syndicate. In exchange for the Fee, you shall become a Member of such a Syndicate. The Syndicates available and their applicable Fees will be provided to you telephonically when you register and subsequently confirmed to you by email 10 days before your payment. You may also be able to access your Account and Syndicate details on the Website, which may be updated from time to time.
Members can cancel their Syndication membership without obligation in the first 14 days of signing up with our sales agent. Members will need to send us a clear written notice by email to our customer service, and their membership will be terminated. If there was a direct debit collection, the member will be refunded. Any winnings attracted from the free promotional tickets will not be paid out as the tickets only benefit signed-up members.
After the expiry of the membership cool-off period, Members must notify us via email at least 30 (thirty) days before their next debit date if they wish to cancel their membership.
Should Members cancel during a 4-week play period during any stage of their 3 months play period, the wins accrued will, unfortunately, be forfeited.
If we do not receive cancellation notice from the Member within the required time frame, the Member will automatically be entered into the next month's Syndicate rollover. We reserve the right to deduct the applicable membership fee from the Member's Account with us, and the membership will only be cancelled at the end of that Syndicate rollover contract.
Membership is open only to persons 18 years or over. If we become aware that you are aged under 18 then we reserve the right to cancel your membership immediately. We will not refund your membership fee for your current Syndicate or loaded credits due to administrative costs incurred and tickets having been paid and allocated, and you will not be entitled to any prize money from that respective Lottery Draw.
Our obligation to pay prize money to the Member is conditional upon us receiving the corresponding prize money from the respective Lottery Operator. If we do not receive the prize money for any reason, that does not arise from our negligence, then we will have no obligation to pay any corresponding prize money to the Member.
We will not be liable to Members (in contract, throughout or otherwise) for any indirect or consequential loss, cost, loss of chance, loss of profit or special loss suffered by the Member.
We will not be liable where we have incorrectly recorded the Member’s preferred main numbers or where (other than as a result of our negligence) any tickets or entries are lost, mislaid, damaged or delayed in transit, regardless of cause, including, for example, as a result of any postal failure, equipment failure, technical malfunction, systems, satellite, network, server, computer hardware or software failure of any kind.
Where we are liable to the Member under or in connection with these Terms, our aggregate liability to a Member in any year is limited to ten times the average monthly membership fee for that year. This limit does not apply in respect of any liability for death or personal injury arising from our negligence, or for fraud.
We will typically contact the Member by email, but we may also contact a Member by telephone, using the contact details the Member has provided to us. It is the Member’s responsibility to inform us promptly if their email address or any of their other contact details change.
Our Terms and Conditions are published on our website and may change from time to time. The new version of these Terms and Conditions will take effect immediately upon the next visit or login on our website or on receipt of any emailed communication we send out to our Members email addresses, which contain links to our Terms and Conditions.
Our Members are deemed to have knowledge of any amendments made to our Terms and Conditions upon their next login to our site or upon receipt of an email from us.
The agreement between our Members and us (as the party purchasing the tickets on behalf of our Members) and with regards to the use of our Website and the offered services shall be governed in accordance with:
We regard the agreement and its provisions as binding and fair.
Payment by Direct Debit provides Members with the protection of the Direct Debit guarantee. This guarantee is offered by all banks and building societies that take part in the Direct Debit Scheme.
The efficiency and security of the Direct Debit Scheme are monitored and protected by the Member's own bank or building society. If the amounts to be paid or the payment dates change, we will notify the Member 10 working days before their Account is debited or as otherwise agreed. If an error is made by the Member's bank or us or building society, the Member is guaranteed a full refund, within 10 working days, from their branch of the amount paid. This does not affect the Member's obligation to pay their membership fee, and we reserve the right to require payment of their membership fee by other means should any Direct Debit payment be refunded under the Direct Debit guarantee.
The Member can cancel a Direct Debit at any time by contacting their bank or building society. Please also contact us to inform us of the cancellation.
We shall be entitled to deem a Member’s Account as inactive if more than one year has passed since the last transaction of the Member. We will notify the Member once their account is deemed inactive.
Debit and Credit Card
Payment of your membership shall be done on the date of sign up with us and continue until your membership account is terminated. To use our service, you must provide us with a valid Visa or Master Credit or Debit card. Unless you cancel your membership before your billing date, you authorize us to charge the membership fee for the next billing cycle to your Payment Method (see "Cancellation of Syndication membership fee").
To become a Member and join a syndicate, Members must pay their monthly membership fees via direct debit on either of the following dates throughout the calendar month – 1st, 2nd, 15th, 16th, 25th, and 26th. Your first play date for the lottery will begin on the closest draw date after your first Direct Debit collection. Your monthly membership fees cover the purchase of lottery tickets by us, on your behalf, and our administrative costs in connection with each Syndicate. We will deduct your membership fee by Direct Debit.
We are so confident of your chances of winning with us that if the Members’ Syndicate does not receive any prize money within the first monthly draws for that Syndicate, we will (subject to members taking the steps set out below) return the monthly membership fee paid for that Syndicate into the membership account the members hold with us.
Refunds of all purchases and/or payment of membership fees by credit and debit card shall be subject to the usual Terms and Conditions of the specific card issuers. We do not process any refunds and as such refunds must be sought from the card issuer.
Prize money and proceeds
Following each Lotto draw we will receive, in our own name, any prize money received on the lines played by the Member and then calculate the prize money to be paid to each Member in the Syndicate.
The Syndicate Members pay-outs are calculated by totalling the prize money received for the Lotto draw and dividing it by the number of members for that Syndicate.
We will always calculate the payment of any prize money to Members based on the prize money that would be payable by the lottery operator(s).
Please note, we are only able to pay prize money which is awarded in connection with the actual lottery draw, as published by the lottery operators. We will not receive, and cannot award, any prize money in connection with any draws, other than for a Jackpot draw for the specific Lotteries offered.
Payments to you
The prize money (as calculated above) won by Syndicate Members will be shared equally between all Members of the Syndicate and each Members proportion will be paid into their respective membership account (winnings wallet) held with us.
These winnings are always subject to us receiving the prize money from respective Lottery operators.
If any prize or share of such prize exceeds £100 000.00, Members will be notified telephonically.
Withdrawal of any winnings from the Members account will be subject to the further terms and conditions contained herein.
We do not accept responsibility for any failure or inability to make payments to any Member, where the information supplied by the Member for such payment is incorrect, incomplete or out of date
After each draw, Members will receive automated email correspondence informing them of any winnings that the Syndicate has made. All wins are subjected to a minimum pay-out policy of £20 and more. If the amount is less than £20, then it will accrue online and carry over to the next month of play till the Member has reached £20.
Once Members have accumulated wins of £20 or more, they can request their wins through their online account under CASH WITHDRAWAL. If a Member’s request is successful, we will pay wins into their bank account within 2 to 3 working days. We will require KYC documents for any Member who withdraws £20 000.00 or more from their winnings wallet.
Winnings are tax-free or non-taxable in many countries. The Member is primarily responsible for the correct payment of taxes, duties and levies. In the event that we are required to pay any taxes, duties or levies directly to the regulatory authorities of a country in respect of a Member’s winnings, then we shall be entitled to deduct those from the Member’s Account or claim them from the Member accordingly, before any pay-out is affected.
10 Free Lines
Our 10 Free Lines promotion is only available to Members once they have successfully purchased a Lottery Syndicate. The 10 Free Lines each Member receives are only valid once (per lottery purchase) and will be entered for the first draw the Members are eligible for.
Members can view their 10 free lines under 'My Syndications' on their dashboard once the Members have successfully signed up and created an account. Any wins drawn from the 10 free lines will be paid into the members online account wallet.
100% Winners Guarantee
We also offer a ‘100% Winners Guarantee’. This means that if Members do not win anything in a calendar month, Members are guaranteed a full refund at the end of their playing period.
By entering the above promotions, you agree:
We reserve the right to vary, suspend, postpone or terminate the above promotions, or any aspect thereof, for any reasons whatsoever and without notice. In such event, you hereby waive any rights or expectations, which you may have against us and acknowledge that you will not have any recourse or claim of any nature against us.

Each of the conditions of these Terms operates separately. If any court or competent authority decides that any are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining conditions will remain in full force and effect.
Failure to insist that the Member performs any of their obligations under these Terms or failure (or any delay) to enforce any obligations against the Member does not constitute a waiver of such rights and does not mean that the Member does not have to comply with those obligations.

Nothing in these Terms shall be enforceable by any third party under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999.
The Member is not permitted to transfer their rights or obligations under these Terms to any third party.
Any purported assignment, transfer, sub-contracting, delegation, charging, or dealing in contravention of these Terms and Conditions or other Laws in force, by the Member shall be ineffective.
