Do you mind if i ask on average how many times a year you have won something?
We win every day we wake up, you only lose if you don't wake up.
Gonna cash mine in and buy new ones.
Got the maximum allowance but have only had £25 this year.
Maybe some fresh numbers might work.
You can do it all online can't you?
Rain stopped play, I'm in Oaks Farm Shop Balsall Common with a batch and a coffee. I'm on my way back when I've finished here.
Well done for getting out there.
Yes, it's simple enough.
This year it has been on average every other month, but the last three months I have won £25 each time and in September two of my bonds came in with £25 each.
I was give a premium bond when I was born 67 years ago .............it has never come up
In 1973 I bought 100 quids worth of PB's, I've not had a single penny back in winnings. I might be just unlucky, or the big one is not far away!
I remember getting a few pb's when i was about 10 or 11. They were a 10 shillings in those days? No idea what happened to them.
I have one from 1954, given to me when I was born. While I fully understand each bond has an equal chance it's clear to have a good chance of winning one needs a sizeable holding. I also understand, though I know a mathmetician will prove me wrong, a large holding of sequential numbers has a greater chance of winning. The theory is any number drawn must be within a sequence. If one holds the sequence the number must be within it - if you get my drift.
Our winnings, usually £25, are automatically invested as new bonds. Every time we hit £1000 I cash in all the £25 sequences and buy a new block of 1000.
When we were very young and poor we won £500 - we still sleep in the bed it bought! New mattress though!
I am sure I had some given to me on birthdays when I was little.
I have no idea what became of them. I have been all through what was left of my dad's stuff and then my mum's stuff after she passed away but no luck in finding them.
I dont suppose I won anything anyway
Same here. I remember the paper documents, but god knows what happened to them.
