Christ! with those wins JPV I'm now not surprised that it looks like ERNIE's lost my numbers down the back of the sofa.This year so far is my worst in respect of wins and amounts for 25 years.  At least the pot has been increased by the largest amount in over 40 years and there could be nearly 100k more prizes given out this month. 

So fingers crossed.

Congrats to jpv and png, my parents had them for years and never won anything much, I don't have any as I'm not a lucky person like that, I dont' do the lottery or any of those competition types things as I so rarely win anything I don't even break even.

At one’s pensionable age one could only hope for granny bonds.

fosy,
That would more certainly happen if I win the lotto!
but I don't bother with them much as the odds are very low.

You have to be in it to lose your money too MrQ

You don't lose your money in premium bonds though.
My sister gas some and gets the odd £25.
I have one (somewhere) in my late husband's name. But it was his birth name, and then it was changed when he was adopted.
I'm guessing, I'd need his adoption certificate, our marriage certificate and his death certificate + I no longer have his surname since remarrying.
It's only one . Maybe you can figure out why I've never chased it!

Premium Bonds are good for those who want a little thrill of gambling without actually gambling.

If you don't actually "win" any money on premium bonds, whilst you might not actually lose any, you don't even gain the miniscule percentage you'd get from an ISA or deposit account. But then I'm not a gambler and don't see the thrill or the point of it.

Presumably that was also the thoughts of the six EuroMllions jackpot winners in the UK this year.
£171m a fortnight ago, £195m on 19 July, £184m on 10 May, £110m on 2 September, a £109m on 4 February and £54m on 10 June.

But as they say, "You gotta be in it to win it", however unlikely the chances are.

Meanwhile it's a bust again this month on the PB front.
