What are peoples annual percentage returns? I’ll have £15k in from May’s draw for 12 months only. I’m looking for a minimum 5% return ie £750 but also prepared for nowt.

I'm averaging £150 a month for my 50K, so about 3.6%. On the basis of this income being tax free, it's not a bad return for a safe investment where I can always withdraw my money instantly without penalty.

You're unlikely to get a 5% return. nwgull's return of 3.6% is more realistic. I'm averaging just over 2% in the past 6 months, other half around 3.5%. Of course, you only need one 'big' win to make it worthwhile....that's the hook!

I watched the Martin Lewis video on it and he basically said that it's only worth doing if you have 40/50k invested. But even then you lose out the thousands you would get from a normal 3/5% ISA on just on a small chance you get the big money. If I've got that right then I think I will pass.

for me its a nice convenient way to stick money into as its safe, easily accessible (no penalties), no tax implications and it might pay more than the 3% you'd get else where with less flexibility.

But also I want to win BIG.
