Having just received my latest 'Prize' from my Premium Bonds I begin wonder just how random the draw really is. I've had 10 small wins over the last 12 months and out of these 7 have been from just one block of Bonds that I bought in February 09.
That does seem to happen. I haven't won anything for ages. If I don't win anything in the next draw, I might well cash them all in. Or I might not, because they're my only chance of becoming relatively wealthy.
AHA!! So it's all your fault. I used to get £50 occasionally and once had 2 x £50 in the same month, but since they introduced £25 as the lowest prize I've had zilch. Now I know why — you're hogging the lot.
Over the long haul I'd have been better off in the Building Society...
