    Congratulations! (Unless it's from a lottery in Nigeria, who want you bank account number so they can deposit your winnings.)

    I win 1 every week by not playing. From next Saturday I'm going to win even more!

    It'll be about the new lottery - they've put the price up to 2, etc etc

    Come on @bossman I'd love to be able to say I actually know of someone (other than a local hairdresser and scrap merchant - who appeared in the local paper) who has actually won more than a ton on any of the various Lotteries. As for the various raffle prize winners of a million I haven't even read about one of them hitting it in the national papers. Makes me wonder if some way down the road we are going to be told that the raffle at least has been a big con!

    my parents won 42,000 about 5 years ago on it, matched 5+ bonus on a midweek draw, my dad bought a car out of that and we had a brilliant few months after it

    The guy who famously lost the ticket of 4 million quite a few years back is an old friend of ours. Wrote a novel loosely based on the subject.
