    Nope, still nothing.
    Only a 20% chance of winning nothing by now but I’ve done it.

    Just been emailed, £25!   I’m rich beyond my wildest dreams….😂

    £50 in Dec, followed by £75 in Jan. Perhaps that’s all my luck used up for the last and next 12 months, so I should just cash ’em in while I’m ahead.

    Nothing. Again. Nothing at all ever. What do I have to do to win? Currently on 11.5k and had nothing back. Better off investing elsewhere?

    £25 – first prize for ages, but over the last year I’m on about 3.5% return, which is well ahead of the 1.4% return rate.

    Thanks to @Olly2097 for your contribution 🙂

    FWIW, when we had a large holding it came in drips and drabs. I think we went three months without a sniff, then had a bunch the next month.

    Need to average it out over the year and see what your %age return is – we hit about 1.4, so we must have above average luck between us…

    I guess so.

    My cousin won 100k so I’m waiting for baby jesus to shine on me lol.

    To be fair it’s the only way of saving that works for me. I’d have nothing if I could instantly swap it into my current account.

    How many bonds do you people have? I’ve got £11,000 and have won £25 in about 10 years!

    £10k here and still awaiting Earnie’s email. Not won a thing, ever.

    usually have about the same failedengineer how ever the last year or so i have steadily built up the coffers to fund the extension going up in april.

    noticed a defined increase in prizes as the number of bonds went up – but that’s probability for you.

    rarely won anything when i only had 5 or 6k . although i also won the biggest prize i ever got during those times also. 500 quid.

    Premier Icon ratherbeintobago

    Nothing for any of us this month 🙁

    I think I worked it out – should get one prize per year for each £2650 in bonds.

    5k 13 months ago with £175 won. Although my s&S isa would have netted 12% but thats already full for the year.

    I’ve had some PBs for a year now
    My winnings have been £25, £25, £50, £75, £50 so I’m doing slightly better than the 1.4% “average”.

    I’d get less return in my current account and it’s quickly available if a rainy day arrives

    Well, despite my suspicion a month ago that my luck was all used up and I should cash them in, I only go and drop £100 this month too. And that wasnt 4 x £25, it is an actual £100, apparently. So I’ll hang on in there after all.

    Thanks for reminder 2×25 here. A neighbour won 100k ages ago when 100k would probably have bought a house.

    Well done on 1×100 above I ve never had more than 25s. Keep meaning to track the annual return so will do and post.

    Good luck all
