If at any point tickets are unable to be purchased, miss placed or lost then that particular lottery draw will be excluded from the syndicate and you will be due a refund for that draw. For example if the syndicate you are a member of has a draw on a Friday assigned to it, and the assigned tickets for that draw are not purchased you will get a refund for that draw. The refund is equal to the membership fee you have paid for that period divided by the number of tickets purchased for the syndicate for that period. As an illustrative example only: You pay a £1 membership fee for a week, there are 10 tickets assigned to the syndicate for that week, £1 divided by 10 = £0.10 due as a refund. This is only the case if tickets are not purchased (or lost) due to any human, technical error or other error
