    I have been playing the lottery for over ten years......

    and i have won 1 tenner, and i was sharing (£5).
    am i doing something wrong?
    I put on 2 quid a week, one on sat one on wed.
    Is it even possible to play for so long and not win?

    well you just answered it for your self....................

    Your holding out for the biggie! It'll be here soon.

    You know, you've always been one of my favourites on here...............:whistling:;-)

    do you always play the same combination of numbers!?

    "Am I doing something wrong"

    yes ..you are putting your money on the lottery!! £2 a week over the last 10 years with average interest would have something like £1.500 saved up.

    Not even won a tenner for around 3 years now, play it every Saturday too

    Maybe true, but think of the hope/chance he's had for 10 years that he could be a multi millionaire.
    Without his £2 a week.......

    :lol:

    Time to stop?

    your kidding yeh? never thought of it like that..:?

    whats tonights number? not on their site for some reason

    You should, by the law of averages get about 2 wins a year if you are playin the lottery twice a week.. I think it's about a 1 in 54 chance of winning a tenner.. so you are owed about 18 wins.. i would write to Camelot and complain ;-)

    Keep playing .By the law of averages you will win the jackpot in 134,000 years :thumbsup:

    well i had heard it was 1 in 50 and was thinking i should have had a few more wins. might have to complain.

    Arr but theyve got ya havent they. Youve played the same numbers for 10 years and if you stop now, sods law says theyll come up. Weve also had crappy luck on the lotto have only won a few tenners in the last 6.5 years and never miss a week with same numbers.

    Im sure they glue our balls to the bottom each week.

    Its funny you should say this though, i was going to work today and when I got their I wanted to come home instantly. Im so sick of working, I dont think its within me anymore, i wasnt born for this crud. So I put 5 lucky dips on tonights draw, im gonna go check now... fingers crossed! I wanna be a rich biatch just once in my life pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

    Can someone post tonights numbers, theyre not on the Camelot site yet?

    God honest truth, a good few years ago.......... used to keep the same numbers every week, knew them off by heart, they were made up of birthdays, ages etc.....
    My mum ended up in hospital one week and as she used to always put them on for us, we didnt get round to it. So, sitting on the Saturday night my dad switches the lottery on, knowing full well we didnt buy our tickets........

    Got 5 bloody numbers up!!!! Turned out it would have only been around £1,500 but would have commited suicide had the six numbers came out!!

    great, ten years and 1 week......................

    Doh! 1 number again

    Not sure if it was true or not but did you hear about the bloke who upset his missus so to get him back she recorded the draw one Saturday, then bought tickets with the winning numbers and played the recording the next week, making the old man think they'd won the jackpot?
    Only a woman could think of something as evil as that.

    yeah same sort of story, used birthdays and house numbers.. got 4 numbers and the bonus ball.. and only missed out on 5 and the bonus ball because my sister was born 2 hours too late

    Awww i gotta go work tomorrow. Im sick of this now, its not bloody fare.

    You could decide not to play and save yourself £2 a week. Or, you could decide not to buy 10 tickets every week and save yourself £10 a week - handy if you're a bit strapped for cash!!! :lol:

    I know someone who left there ticket to be checked by there teenage daughter while she went to the local club (wmc) she had put 6 lines on, her daughter wasnt the sharpest tool and rang her to tell her she had all 6 numbers, she checked the numbers over the phone with teletext in the club and she had all 6 and proceeded to but everyone in the club champers, turns out she had 6 numbers but on 6 different lines. lucky for her the club only had 6 bottles of champers so bought everyone else half a lager and it only cost her £150 quid. wasnt too pleased when she woke the next day with a hangover and the bill for the drinks. ha.

    its a waste of money.........imagine all the money u could have saved if u never played.

    by playing and not winning its just making your life frustrating and your loosing money which could have been spent on a holiday or entertainment or something.

    even if you play for 10 days or 50 years, the chances of winning will stay the same, i dont know why your so surprised.

    I didnt expect to win anyway, it just would of been soooo nice. If you dont try youll never ever win.

    And yes I can imagine what it would be like if I never gambled, but I could also say the same to you, how much money you could have if you became a nudist and didnt buy clothes!

    Its a bit of fun and you never know!

    bloke who i have worked for has won it. i think he won 4 million.

    I have played it since it started, 1 line a weeks and probably won around 10 x £10's but there again I wouldn't want to win big. 5 plus the bonus would do me fine :-D

    you do realise you are more likley to get hit by lightening 3 times than win the jackpot? so to your answer, yes it is possible.....

    Ok, direct me to the next storm :-D

    I used to the lottery in the betting shop its twice a day i think and something like 500/1 for 3 numbers.

    I've never won anything at all on the lottery.











    Probably because I've never done it! Got no issue with the gamble, just wont support camolot's license to print money for themselves.
