The pair's postcode of SO53 1JH made them a daily prize winner.

Thanks to the win, the Hursley Road neighbours have each picked up a £1,000 prize for every ticket that they hold.

That isn't quite how it works.

However, quite how it works is also complex, and not worth going into.

Suffice to say:

  • You might win a big prize
  • You might win a small prize
  • You probably won't win at all
  • Whatever it is that happens to you, the organisers definitely will get cash every week.

Ie, just like every other lottery.

No more Raffle prizes and a limit on roll overs. Oh dear.

Three years ago when they changed the pool of numbers from 49 to 59, the had a spokesman from the Lotto on TV to explain why. He claimed "people wanted more choice " I've never heard anyone saying they played the Lotto but that they wish there more number to make it more difficult. Your chance of getting 6 numbers went from 1 in 14 million to 1 in 42 million......
