       Are lucky dips the same as quick picks?

        I Googled "LUCKY DIP" and got this as an answer.

        A Lucky Dip is a randomly-generated entry...so in short, your answer is YES

          Thank You, TheMeatman2005, I do not intend on visiting the UK. We have English as our language but it is so different across the pond. The "pond" being the North Atlantic Ocean.

           Good Luck to all Lottery players wherever you may be in this world.Party

                      Is it possible Geoffrey's account has been hacked? I can't imagine the time involved

                      even if by automated prize winning notifications, to inform each subscriber of their

                      minimal win of a Lucky Dip/Quick pick ticket. The sign in links seemed to have increased

                      in subsequent emails, making it easier/more tempting to click one. I hope Geoffrey's 

                      method of payment is secured or extremely limited in the balance availability and

                      accessibility.

                      Kudos to Geoffrey if this is all on the up and up and best of luck to him for a huge win!
