What are Lottery Bundles?
Lottery bundles, as the name implies, are special packages that some online lottery sites offer that contain the best of both worlds: entries to both regular and syndicate games. In other words, lottery bundles allow you to kill two birds with one stone. But, beyond convenience, what else does it offer? Let's find out.

- Apart from convenience, lottery bundles also allow you to increase your chances of winning. The more tickets you buy, the more your chances improve, after all. Plus, Syndicates are also known to have higher odds of winning compared to regular lottery games.
- Lottery bundles are usually discounted by a small percentage. In TheLotter's case, for instance, you get 10% off the original cost of the tickets included. In other words, if you bought them separately, you'll be paying more.
- Personal Entry: This is also known as your entry to a regular lottery game. As previously mentioned, you can choose your numbers here, as you would when you purchase tickets for solo play. You can do so either manually or randomly via a Quick Pick option. It's also important to note that whatever prize you win through this entry will be yours in its entirety.
- Syndicate Entry: Syndicate play, if you aren't familiar, allows you to join a group and pool your tickets together for more chances of winning. It works the same here in bundles as it does when you play normally. If you win, the prize is split among your group.
- Syndicate Lines: Lines determine how many unique set of numbers are played in a syndicate game. So, for example, if the bundle you chose contains a total of 456 lines, that could mean that you have shares in a 200-line syndicate and in another syndicate that contains 256 lines. In other words, you have over 456 chances of winning.
- Syndicate Shares: Shares determine how much of the prize you stand to win in each syndicate game. You calculate this by dividing 100% to the number of shares available. So, for example, if a syndicate has 100 shares, you stand to win 1% of the prize. If a game has 50 shares, you stand to win 2% – and so on.
- Syndicate Types: Some sites, like TheLotter, offer different syndicate types. Each type has small rule variances, but not enough to change how a syndicate generally works. For instance, there's a type of syndicate where your numbers are randomly chosen for a fixed number of lines. Then, there's one where each line contains a dynamic number that spans the entire guessing range of the syndicate – which ensures that you get at least one number match.
