    16 years from the very first UK lottery draw in 1994 (I think). Now started playing daily lotto four months ago.

    Never missed playing a single main draw; hopeful, foolish, desperate or whatever, depending how you may look at it.

          Yes, I still own £3 of Premium Bonds from the olden days when they were sold at £1 each.

          I later bought more but had to redeem them when I ran very short of money a few years ago. Definitely will buy up to the maximum of £20k if I win the lottery.

            mom and dad bought £25 worth when i was born. i cant recall them winning anything, but i have bought more.

            what with inflationand a tummbling pound, they seema  pretty dodgey deal, but i like the fact u keep your wager money for later withdrawal.

              I actually managed to win £10 on the £3 bond some years ago, and at least half a dozen small prizes up to £100 from a holding of about £500 which I no longer have.

              I knew someone at work who owns the maximum of £20k and he claimed to win a prize every month.

              With very low interest rates nowadays, the prize fund can't be very much.

                17? That was illegal!

                You should do the right thing and turn yourself in to the authorities.

                Do your time and put it behind you. Don't let this haunt you for the rest of your life.

                It would be easier to do your jail time now then spend the rest of your life looking over your shoulder.

                    I have been interested in the lottery, and I have looked at the winning numbers in the newspaper, since July or August 2000 (I was 14 at the time). I began checking results online for the entire U.S. and Canada in November 2002. I bought my first lottery ticket in January 2005 (I was 19), but I never played too big. I did not win anything from the lottery until I was 22, on Leap Year Day 2008.

                    Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

                    In a lot of states, lotteries benefit education. That makes the REAL winners the only people who can't play!

                      Ever since I was born. 46 years now and counting.

                      It's always been a gamble from the start. I think I lost my very first bet at birth, when I was crying after the doctor slapped my face cause he lost a wager....

                            I've been interested in the lottery since it began in Texas. I only play certain times of the year though.

                            Mostly in the fall when the weather starts to change and the leaves are dropping.

                            Don't know if it has to do with the internal clock, the need to change, or something out there telling me this could be my time. lol

                              Is it true what tiggs heard that instead of slapping you the Dr slapped your mother when you was born 46 years ago..
