No I didn’t win £66,000,000.00 on the lottery – not very likely as I have never bought a lottery ticket (although that only makes it slightly less likely than if I did buy a ticket) – but I did just get a letter telling me I have won £25 from my Premium Bonds! WooHoo! Every little helps : ) All rights reserved. © Text copyright Fleur 2016.

And the good thing is, unlike the lottery, you still get the original investment back!

@Fleura Exactly. You are not losing your money. I don't play the lottery. It's such a waste of money.

What are you going to splurge it on?

I chose the option of re-investing any winnings, so I won't be splurging yet!

Thanks! I think it's the smallest amount you can win but nevertheless, not to be sniffed at!

You mean "dividends" don't you?

Premium bonds are government savings bonds with a chance of winning a prize - so unlike a lottery ticket, even if you don't win anything your money is still there and you can get it back.

You sound like me. I think my odds are really not that different than the millions who invest in lottery tickets....you never know, I might find one on the ground.

Absolutely, in fact I keep meaning to write about people's perception of luck and risk!

That will be a small amount but definitely it can help in some extent. So congrats.

That'll do. I wouldn't want the big money anyway.
