It is not uncommon for a number of persons to form a syndicate to subscribe for weekly tickets to the National Lottery. Invariably, there will be no written rules of the syndicate and the members will rarely address their minds to the question of how any winnings (large or mall) should be divided, particularly in the event of a member failing to pay the required sum or if the required subscription is paid not by the member himself but by a partner or friend. This article asks to whom the winnings will belong in these circumstances by reference to both resulting trust and presumption of gift principles. It also considers what rules should form the basis of a written syndicate agreement.
