There is a £100k winner in Brighton and Hove with a total holding of £5795. The winning bond was purchased in Feb 23. Been through the entire list of Feb winners down to £5k, and not joking, there are a LOT of B&H area winners this month, a lot more than usual.
i won that when i only has a few hundred holding. From a late 1970s bought number by my nan :)

Feckin boooo. Got an equivalent annual return of 2.8% on the February 1st draw. I think the new average luck rate of return is 4.4%. So I was miles behind that. Feckin, boooo.

Absolutely feck all again this month, 3 Consecutive draws with a 26k holding and with the prize pot being reduced again from March, looks like I will be locking in 20k into a fixed ISA as interest rates predicted to fall later in the year.

Mate of mine won £25k last month, now he's just got another £650. I've given him a couple of quid and asked him to do the lotto tonight for me...

£100 for me, £275 for the missus. My sons both won as well (not that they tend to check - although they get their winnings reinvested so not such fun to win in the scheme of things I guess)

I just treated myself to some packs of Guinness 0.0 AF which is on offer at Majestic at the moment with my winnings.

Yes, similar for me. Checked my NS&I account on 2nd Jan hoping to see some wins but nothing...strange system !
