777Lottos provides a EuroMillions syndicate service which enables our members to play the lottery together by buying a number of tickets at a shared cost and splitting any prizes won (our “Service”) as described in these terms and conditions (the “Terms”). 777Lottos and our Service are provided for entertainment purposes only.
How the Game works
EuroMillions is a European lottery, operated in a number of territories within Europe by co-promoters of the EuroMillions game. The EuroMillions lottery shares a collective prize fund, and has a common weekly draw and game mechanic. Each entry to the EuroMillions lottery is a line of seven numbers, consisting of five main numbers (from 1-50) and two lucky star numbers (from 1-12).
The Different types of Syndicates
Our first Syndicate offer – contains up to 150 members, with one line for each member allocated to it. There will be 75 lines per week played across the EuroMillions’ draw divided into 30 on a Tuesday and 45 on a Friday. Your 300 tickets per month will be split equally over the 4 week playing period to support a maximum of 8 draws in the month. Your own unique line of numbers will appear in the draws 2 times per month either on a Tuesday or Friday. All ticket winnings are divided evenly amongst the syndicate.
Our second Syndicate offer – contains up to 100 members,with one line for each member allocated to it.There will be 50 lines per week played across the EuroMillions draw divided into 25 tickets every Tuesday and Friday night over a 4 week play period.These 200 tickets per month will be split equally over the 4 week playing period to support a maximum of 8 draws a month.Your unique line of numbers will appear in the draw twice a month either on a Tuesday or on a Friday. All ticket winnings are divided evenly amongst the syndicate.
Our syndicates are commission free, meaning we you will receive all winnings accrued by the syndicate!
Selection of numbers
You can select your five main numbers (from 1 – 50) when you become a 777Lottos member, but if you choose not to we will select them for you (and we may change them from time to time). You will also choose your 2 lucky star numbers (1-12).
We will provide you with a login password which will enable you to view your list of your Syndicate’s numbers in advance online in your own personal.This will enable you to share in the enjoyment of the EuroMillions’ lottery experience (although the lines will be purchased in our name and on our own behalf). You acknowledge that the odds of your Syndicate winning the EuroMillions’ lottery are the same as the odds published by the official EuroMillions’ lottery provider.
Payment of the membership fee
In order to become a 777Lottos member and join a Syndicate as detailed above, you must pay the membership fee on one of the following dates throughout the course of the calendar month – 1st, 2nd, 15th, 16th, 25th and 26th. Your first play date for syndication will begin to the nearest Monday after your first Direct Debit collection. Your membership fee covers 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 using your preferred payment method, as indicated by you when you signed up to become a 777Lottos member. In most cases this will be by Direct Debit.
Direct Debit guarantee
If you select to pay by Direct Debit then you have the protection of the Direct Debit guarantee (please see below for full details). Under this guarantee, you are entitled to an immediate refund from your bank or building society if any error is made in respect of a Direct Debit payment. This does not affect your obligation to pay your membership fee, and we reserve the right to require payment of your membership fee by other means should any Direct Debit payment be refunded under the Direct Debit guarantee.
Money Back Winners Guarantee
We are so confident of your chances of winning with 777Lottos that if your Syndicate does not receive any prize money within the first monthly 777Lottos draws for that Syndicate, we will (subject to you taking the steps set out below) return the monthly membership fee paid by you for that Syndicate into the membership account you hold with us.
Prize money and proceeds
Following each EuroMillions’ draw, we will receive, in our own name and on our own behalf, any prize money received on the lines played by your Syndicate. We will calculate the prize money to be paid to each member of your Syndicate by totalling the prize money received for the weekly EuroMillions’ draws during the month of the Syndicate and dividing it by the number of members in that Syndicate.
Where we purchase tickets for your Syndicate through EuroMillions’ operators outside of the UK, we will always calculate payment of any prize money to you, and the other members of your Syndicate, based on the prize money that would be payable by the UK EuroMillions’ operator (currently Camelot Group) as if the tickets were purchased in the UK, as displayed on www.national-lottery.co.uk.
Please note, we are only able to pay prize money which is awarded in connection with the EuroMillions’ draw, as published by Camelot Group. We will not receive, and cannot award, any prize money in connection with any draws associated with EuroMillions (including, by way of example of only, “1 guaranteed UK millionaire maker winner”).
Payments to you
The prize money (as calculated above) for your Syndicate will be shared equally between all members of the Syndicate and your proportion will be paid into the membership account you hold with us following the end of that Syndicate, subject always to us receiving the prize money from EuroMillions. If your share exceeds £100,000, then we will notify you of this by telephone.
After each draw, you will receive automated email correspondence informing you of any winnings that your syndicate has made. All syndicate wins are subjected to a minimum pay-out of £10 and more, if the amount is less than £10 per player then it will accrue online and carry over to the next month of play till you have reached £10. To receive your wins, you must request your wins through your online account under the description titled “Balance”
Once you have placed a request and your request is successful we will pay out your wins into your personal bank account within two working days.

We are not connected with Camelot Group PLC or any other lottery providers or commissions.
