I won £10 on the lottery...

Don’t worry. I won’t let it change my life. I will still be the same person.

(no begging letters please… and if you wish to contact me please do so through my agent)

It may be one of the last times you’ll be able to do so, Pat.

I gather they’re changing it some time this year, so the price per line rises to £2, but the fixed prize for “match 3” will be £25. I usually have two lines, on a Saturday only, but if they think I’m still having two lines, once they’ve doubled the price, they’ve got another think coming. My better judgment tells me it’s a waste of money as it is, but no way am I wasting twice as much!

I think, on average, I’ve won £10 about once in every couple of years - but that’s with two lines. If I only did one line at the higher price, I suppose I could look forward to winning £25 about once in every four years. :frowning:

Premium bonds have better odds, and you never lose your stake (except to the ravages of inflation), but it’s a pity they don’t let you buy in units under £100 any more.

Hi Pat, yippee…so is it drinks all round then? LOL.

Now back in 1998, I came up with 5 numbers and won £2,293 and then 3 months later, got another 5 and won £1,080. I treated the family and enjoyed the win. I bought hubby a classic car…Hillman Minx 1960.

He restored it and took our daughter to her wedding in it.

I`m with Tina on doing less lines when the price goes up.

Enjoy your win.

Seems like I used to win £10 quite often when we first had the lottery… but this is the first £10 I’ve won in years!!! I once won about £80 but never as much as Poll !!!

I only do one line on a Saturday. I do it over the internet & this is the first time I’ve won with an internet ticket.

Bit of a disappointment really as you get an email saying they have news about your ticket… you open that and then it says you’ve won some money & to click on another link (by this time of course I’m already a millionaire in my head!)…

… and then you log into the site and only then do they tell you you’ve won £10… so naturally reaction is IS THAT ALL!!!

Not sure if I’ll buy the £2 a line… but on other hand it gives you the ‘dream’… and my dream is to come off benefits!!! That would do… really that’s all I want (and to pay off my son’s mortgage if I had enough).

Very cold & wet in London…

Keep warm & cosy,

Whoopee Pat - don’t spend it all at once! My late grandmother won about £2,000 on the lottery, the year it started. I was pregnant with my eldest son and she bought me a lovely abc rug for his bedroom. I’m afraid I have never won a penny. I never ever win anything. I have never won anything in a raffle at the boys’ schools or that type of thing. I guess I’m naturally unlucky! Teresa xx

I’ve always thought of you are a winner, M

Ah Pat, this so made me smile Hopefully I’ll post a similar message when I win the Euromillions tonight

I’m not sending my begging letter to you Pat! I’m sending it to Poll with all those wins on the lottery.

I have a ticket on Wed and Sat and Friday euro. So £4 a week but when the price goes up i will stop doing the Wed so i am still only spending my £4!

I won £2.70 once on the euro(lol!). I’m like the other Teresa - never had much luck!
