I often fantasise about a big win and what I would do with the money.....prefer to win the Euro millions though I mean if I'm going to win it may as well be big-time ......not that I'm greedy or anything

Re: Premium Bonds

I hanker after a Set for Life win...10,000 a month for 30 years.

That’ll do nicely.

(Got a ticket for tomorrow’s game, but do wish it was weekly, not twice a week.)

Re: Premium Bonds

As said, I didn't win anything on the PB's this month but I did win a mighty 20 on the Postcode Lottery..........Happy Days !!

( Cue some killjoy telling me what a bad investment The Postcode Lottery is not realising I do it as a fun means of donating to charity!)

Re: Premium Bonds

Yeah it IS bad. These are money losing ventures. Terrible terrible odds, awful payouts compared to the odds of winning individual prizes. These things exist to transfer money from the desperate and uninformed to the greedy business people selling magic beans.

Of course it is, I know that , I'm neither desperate or uninformed I partake anyway because some of it goes to charity.

I'm not expecting to win big..........That is an unreasonable expectation........although when I lived in Yate my friend at the other end of the street won 30,000 .

I play because I can afford to and because much of the money goes to good causes...........

The vast majority of Postcode Lottery players are fully aware of the nature of the game and the odds of winning............Some people like to have some fun with their money!............Not every Pound is a Prisoner!
