Nice thread and RC was a viper.

I take it that you don't know that RC died unexpectedly in his sleep a few years ago.

He did love stirring up discussion on here though.

I did know that he has passed away and I think it was before I joined so I never had any 'encounters'. I would have liked that.

He was one of the wittiest and most likeable people I've ever known. I'm glad I got to enjoy a pint (or twenty) with him (and other BCG members) over the course of a few nights in 2014. Rest in peace, James.

Both of our lotteries are up to large enough jackpots that I just bought 5 tickets for each after I finished up my shopping. Winning the lottery might be fraught with peril, but I'm willing to give it a go.

My son has played a lot and lost a lot

Now he doesn't play them any more, having learnt his lesson, thank heavens.

Even luckier, I also had a "consolation prize" of a Lucky Dip ticket from the previous week, which happened to have to same three numbers in the ticket AND, of course, I won £30 on that too!

£60 - they most I've ever won on the lottery. :D

Does anyone hold premium bonds?

I just got some and was wondering how often you win anything

Yes, have been buying them for years as an alternative to ISAs, which are crap at the moment, not unless you invest in the stock market ones.
I have a tidy sum now in PBs and do very well in regular wins of £25 - £100, but am still waiting for the big one, or at least bigger than £25!
It used to be reckoned as a rough guide, that if you held £30,000 worth, you should get a prize a month - usually £25 of course. :D

If you want to make money fast on the Internet, you have to learn how to play casinos. You must have at least one good card in your hands at all times to be profitable. So the best strategy is to altogether avoid carrying overdrafts on your credit cards. It is pretty easy to become a millionaire playing online poker, especially if you are smart with your time and effort. You can read about casino software and learn how to bluff with it. In this way, I made around 700$ per week from the strategy described in that article.

Back in the day I worked on the pitch to get the business to launch the National Lottery.
When I asked the client what the odds are of winning were, he said "Put it this way, not buying a ticket only marginally reduces the odds of winning"
