Play national lotto 29 weeks for price of 17 (£25 cash back/credit covering 12 weeks play) (Account specific - Invite only)

Found 8th Nov
Just had an email for this from The National Lottery so basically set up a direct debit before 11pm on 15th November and pay by direct debit for a minimum of 1 game per week until 13th February 2018 and they'll give you £25 credit to spend (couldn't see any restrictions as to having to bet and win x times like most gambling sites) which will then pay for a further 12 weeks play and you can cancel DD then.

Oh and you'll still have £1 spare to play a scratch card with lol

I'm not surprised they are resorting to promotions like this, the prizes these days and the odds of winning are laughable.

Good offer, but I'm just trying to get my head around "29 weeks for the price of 17"...

If you can play a single £2 line just once a week, and cashback is paid out after 3 months (13 weeks?), would it not be more like 25 weeks for the price of 13?

Have I misunderstood something?

1. In order to be eligible to participate in the Promotion, you must:

a. be the addressee of the Promotional email sent by The National Lottery on Wednesday 1st November 2017;


Didn't receive a promo email.... worth a go?

I literally just signed up for DD the other day - wondering if I can get this work for me in some way? No promo email

I went off the following direct debit list

date, cost, number of tickets
20 Nov 2017 £8.00 4
20 Dec 2017 £10.00 5
20 Jan 2018 £8.00 30 4
20 Feb 2018 £8.00 4

So £34 for 17 tickets

Then £25 / £2 = 12 tickets (and a half lol)

So total of 29 (and a half ;-)) for £34

Only bit I'm not sure of is that you might be able to not pay Feb direct debit and get away without the extra £8, but not worth risking for me

Stopped playing a whild back in fact i Wouldn't play now if they offered it for a penny per week ... Odds are so stacked in their favour these days since they added more balls and doubled the price

Don't believe his lies. You gotta be in it to win it!

Yes they got a bit too greedy. The 100% increase in ticket price was bad enough but cancelled my subscription when they added another ten numbers. Apparently 14million to one chance?

excuse me... since when is a lottery, a deal? Unless it's a free ticket a lottery is possibly the worst deal in the world. Might as well throw your money into a wishing well

Voted hot. But only because you reminded me to cancel my Direct Debit with them.

Tax on the mathematically stupid, is what my maths teacher used to say!

I do a single line in both the Wednesday and the Saturday draws - a little over £16 a month.

I believe about 25% goes to good causes, so I consider it my charitable giving each month with a (very) small chance of getting something back.

In truth I thought it was 50% to good causes - a figure which I was happy with - wish I hadn't checked now!!!

Postcode lottery... health lottery... they are only ones worth playing. More prizes more often

Stopped playing a while ago now - there's much better uses of £34!!!

That was the previous "old" Lotto version.

The odds of selecting 6 winning numbers for the Lotto jackpot is a staggering 45,057,474 to 1 since they added the extra numbers.

Surprisingly, Camelot seems to be quite good at hiding this information or still displaying the "old" 14 million to 1 rate......

As someone who never watches the draw and just waits for them to email me any winnings, I had no idea of that change.

I guess I'm the one born every minute!

Last time I crunched the stats, there are only two occasions when it's worth doing the main National Lottery draw ("Lotto"):

1. When the jackpot gets to the maximum limit (£50,000,000). At this point, the jackpot prize fund must be paid out. If no one gets all 6 numbers, the £50,000,000 million fund will be paid out and cascaded down to all the other lesser winners - who will receive larger prize payouts than normal.

2. When they run special promos (like they did at Halloween) where they guarantee an additional "X" people are guaranteed to win £1,000,000 in the millionaire draw. This greatly increases your chances of winning over normal draws.
