Oz Lotto $90 million syndicates selling well

fhn_ozlotto_jackpot.JPGSyndicates for the Oz Lotto $90 million jackpot are very popular.  I put this down to the coverage syndicates have received in the media and to the size of the first division prize – people are happy to share.  They also like to be part of something.  Our customers are buying syndicate shares in addition to their own tickets in the Oz Lotto jackpot.  While our $10 syndicates have been the top sellers in terms of shares sold, our $374 syndicate will sell out by tomorrow – all sold from within our store.

    Are the prices rounded up to an even number?

    We have sold 20 syndicates so far not bad for small shop. Really annoyed though ran out of forms late today. Recd 3 boxes thursday ordered another 3 friday. Supposedly left sydney saturday but not recd yet. Surely we can expect better than that. Not looking forward to tomorrows angry customers as a result of bad courier service

    34 Syndicates at Seymour…and counting.

    We are selling on average 50 shares a day, which is incredible considering the financial woes of the country.

    The Tatts System needs to get a BIG pat on the back, no issues to date. (Intralot crashed twice again today)

    Bring on tomorrow!

    Michael – they’re rounded DOWN, not up. The customer gets additional value for money on almost all of our syndicates.

    We can justify the loss of a bit of margin on a product where customer will return to us to collect their prize money, and hopefully “reinvest”.

    It also saves the hassle of making change on busy days.

    Sounds good. I might give it ago another day.

    If any Queenslanders are stuck with group shares put the details here and I’d be happy to move them.

    … rounding down is discounting, which is against gambling laws in all states… don’t let the govt inspectors catch you out!
