And do you usually buy one?
Yes - via a syndicate.
I know that I'm extremely unlikely to win and don't usually gamble so I'm a bit embarrassed that I've got one.
Well mr ScotSEN does. He doesn't buy regularly just now & again but only for Saturdays. When he wins we'll share as the cash came from joint account
I won £1.25 on the instant win games earlier so I'm feeling lucky.....
did cost me £2.50 though!
The thing about playing the lottery is that it often seems to be those who are least able to afford to throw money away, who buy a ticket for this and a ticket for that and oh 6 scratch cards too.
Nope. But I got £5 of Premium Bonds when I left my first job (in a small grocer's shop in the holidays) and I'm still hopeful!
I 'll give up buying them when mr jubilee gives up smoking!
No... thought about but... no.
Won £125 on premium bonds this month so maybe it's lucky 2016 for me!
yes, MrSK bought one.
no, we usually don't (did in Ireland, once won 150 euros)
No, I don't buy them. Although years ago, when we were at our poorest, I did have a period where I bought some and I know my husband bought some too. I would agree the lottery does appeal to people who are closer to the poverty line - it's understandable. The price has gone up, hasn't it? And haven't they added more numbers?
Winning it might be a problem however, I've always thought that Ferraris should be red, but yellow looks pretty good too. Which should I buy?
I haven't got a ticket for tonight's draw. I sometimes buy one for the Euromillions. One is just purchasing a dream.
Son2 and I share a ticket. We occasionally won a tenner but hey, we just do it support good causes.
I do it online every so often when I'm particularly fed up with work. Guess what? I'm really fed up,so yes, I have a ticket.
True. You might also be purchasing a nightmare if you can't afford it.
Yes via a syndicate.
I used to play regularly but gave up when the ticket price went up.
