I'm just dreaming yet again of a big win, even £100 would be nice! Just wondering if anyone actually ever does win in real life?!!! (I know they do but it would be good to hear from those who have actually won...)

I got 5 numbers about 10 years ago... Won 2.5k.

Nothing since, not even a tenner.

2.5k must've been nice!!! I won £25 a few weeks back but really, how hard can it be to just match 6 numbers? :D

Its all relative isn't it. I remember when I was at uni I got 4 numbers and win £46. It was loads of money at the time. Had the odd £10 since, here and there.

I won 3k but we were in a syndicate and had to split it. I've had the odd few small wins but nothing else.

I won £100 on the premium bonds! About 25 years ago I think, I bought a camera. Nothing to speak of since...

Not lottery but I did win 2 grand on a TV phone in competition when DS was a baby.

The sister of a friend of mine won 1m on the millionaire's raffle on Euromillions. It was the first ticket she'd ever bought.

I know someone you got 5 numbers and the bonus years ago and won about £100K, the most i have won is £96 for four numbers, i won £25 three weeks ago for 3 numbers first win for 3 years, was very happy with that as we were skint and instead of egg and chips for sunday dinner we had a nice big roast.

I got 4 numbers twice in one week, came to around £90 altogether. My parents won 2.5k. Given up with it mostly now though, especially since it went up.

Sod all bar the odd tenner.........but I do know of a family locally who won it twice within the same family. They all live together in a huge house.

I won 1500 euros on the Belgian Lotto once. I didn't get an email or anything, the money was just paid into our bank account. It was a lovely surprise!

minmooch Sat 08-Feb-14 16:51:23

£27.50 on the Euromillions - was a tad underwhelmed!

MrsLeonard Sat 08-Feb-14 16:53:05

i won £100 twice on a scratchcard. came in handy, especially the second time.

Buccabucca Sat 08-Feb-14 19:59:34

Euromillions is rubbish, max I've ever won is about a fiver! But I AM going to win tonight smile

She bought a new Hoover for herself & insisted on keeping the rest in a separate bank account for my mum & dad to put towards her funeral hmm
